    Just want to say thanks to the guys here for helping me out a couple
    months back. I posted under the heading "Air intake too loud" and we had
    concluded that the mechanical timing was off.

    Yesterday, after my semester was completed, I rolled the Civic into the
    garage, took everything apart and upon making the first piston TDC, there
    it was. The white marks I had placed on the camshaft pulley were off by
    one tooth. The crankshaft pulley must have turned originally because the
    marks on the camshaft pulley were lined up. Anyway...

    So I adjusted the timing, triple checked it, put everything back and the
    car sounded beautiful. Not to mention i'm back at full
    strength...power-wise. With the timing off and having to turn the AC on,
    I had one slow ride. :)

    The only odd...well, maybe not odd...thing to occur was the car died on me
    twice after the initial start. I'm taking it that the computer was
    readjusting to the new timing because the RPM's started behaving normally
    after I was driving on the highway for about 30mins.
