Default B&M Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator Install (pics)

I've been meaning to post these...installed a B&M CommandFlo adjustable fuel pressure regulator on my coupe. Very easy install...remove FPR, cut the top off the stock FPR, assemble new cap on top using new spring and o-ring, reinstall, adjust pressure using external screw.

The new unit looks cool and works well...I actually lowered my pressure as I was running rich...have gotten a little better response out of it. Also the car is smoother now when I shift which I can attribute to one of the following:
1) I'm suddenly better at shifting.
2) my clutch is slipping.
3) the mixture was rich before, causing it to lag.

I'm thinking number 3.

I'm currently running about 34psi when the vacuum hose is disconnected, but may up it once I upgrade a few items. So in summary...I recommend it, but make sure you have the fuel pressure gauge or else you're shooting in the dark.

later,


FPR mounted for the cut...used a dremel tool.


cap and stock spring removed


new regulator assembled


installed

Installed a B&M fuel pressure gauge this morning. The reasons include wanting to make sure my pump was putting out correct pressure and the possibility of future fuel pressure modifications that will require a quantitative measurement of pressure.

It's an easy install...took about 10 minutes...mounts right on top of the fuel filter throgh the use of a new banjo bolt that comes in the kit. Clearance is minimal though...barely clears the hood when down (see last photo).

Fuel rail is at 32psi ...from what I've read that is about right.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Later

Sweet. I didn't think about modifying the factory FPR like that. Good idea, and it works, apparently!

I honestly don't know...I didn't originally write this diy. But FPRs tend to be a pretty universal for for Hondas from this era. A little digging will give you the answer I'm sure
