Well im having real bad idle problems and it wants to quit all the time - I read a post that said something about the IAC valve so i took it off and gave it a real good cleaning but still nothing - also every now and then i will be just cruising down the highway and my car will start missing and then the tach will go crazy could this be due to the crank position sensor?? I have a full shaved valve cover so it could easily be getting water in it during the rain - help me

Also my compression is low like 155 160 160 160 - could this be the problem with the idle or could the valves need adjusting????

mileage = 76000
mods - bolt on - i/h/e - msd 6al - full head work with the exception of cams - nothing done in the last 5000 miles but just wants to act funny - also i dont know if this has anything to do with it or not but i have a autometer A/F ratio guage and it is installed correctly but sits all the way on rich about 99% of the time - but the fuel system is stock why would that be - honda master tech verified that the guage was installed correctly

also the idle problem - its like it gets in its own moods - it will idle rough but still idle for a while and then it will start quiting when i push in the clutch - i dont know why but if it is idleing i can pump the brakes and the idle will go up like 200-300 RPM - ????

i did drive it for a while today and it ran great but then every once in a while when your just cruising at 2000 rpm - 3000 rpm the tack starts going crazy and it boggs down wayyyy bad but if you let off the gas or stomp the gas it will stop ??

bosh plugs suck my balls IMO

I would recommend getting either copper or platinum ngks

Copper - ZFR6F-11
Platinum - PZFR6F-11

the platinum ones will last a long time (replace them every 50k or so) where as the coppers won't last as long. Then again, for the money you can buy 4 sets of copper plugs for the price of platinums.

do you have any spefic reasons on getting the fuel rail, filter regulator and pump? If you just have basic bolt ons you wont get anymore power. Since you have a 99 your filter should be fine, but you can always get an OEM one for pretty cheap.
