    Default b16 smells good... but also bad economy wise :D

    I got a jdm b16 ver2 in my 2000 EL, just recently purchased. I have noticed the exhaust smells extremely rich and even with the slightest high revs coming in, but not in vtec, i get the burning oil smell, smells like what you get after a fresh oil change. Last oil change was 600-700km ago.

    Anyway i was just wondering if the richness of the fuel mixture is normal for a b16. Getten about 400-450 Km's on a tank.

    What ecu are you using with the new motor?
    Machining, Fabricating, Welding etc.

    ya i dunno.. its odd my a/f gauge says its running rich too.. but when it sits there ideling.. look at the exhaust i sometimes have some black shit and water coming out of it.. i know my motor needs a huge tune up but i tend to do it when i start pulling the motor out and doing the turbo set up... i think i'm running obo1 i think i'm not to sures..

    unless you have a wideband...plese dont trust your A/F Meter...they are known to be somewhat inaccurate, and slow to respond...

    yeah i hit vtec often, if it's nice out. if there is snow i never get to it. but yea gotta love the sound even if it wastes some gas. i'm pretty sure i don't have a block heater. but i stole the underground for the winter, hahaha.
