Re: Honda prelude misfiring pinging

so i replaced the FPR and it didnt do anything. The oil light flickers at idle, when i rev it up its fine.. when i stomp on the gas it bucks hard as soon as it hits vtec and you here some pinging / detonation? i cleaned my egr ports not to long ago. the thing is i drilled the plugs out to 5/8ths because i couldnt find the plugs that were supposed to fit in there so there was a lot of metal shavings. i kept the shop vac close and made sure to clean up the best i could. could these shavings getting into the oil cause the oil pickup screen to get clogged and reduce my oil pressure. It also only does this when its up to operating temp. the motor only has about 80k on it so i really am hoping its not an oil pump.
