When it was jacked up in the air, yes the LCA was resting on the exhaust pipe. But on the ground I have a good 2-3” of clearance. So I’m not worried about it hitting the exhaust.

I’m half tempted now to create a fuel pump access hole in the trunk. I saw my leak is coming from the gasket and I really don’t want to drop the tank. It would require me to move the exhaust, heat shield and disconnect everything.

I looked at the DIY but the pictures are blurry so I can’t see his measurements. Does anyone have a the measurements or a good pic? Or have a fuel tank laying around and can measure for me.

These pics from my old sedan. I'd probably recommend against using a dremel like I did, though. Fuel leak + potential sparks = not a good way to go out. Note the hard line (what is that, brakes?) along the front edge of the hole.

Was that big enough to get the pump out? I may initially use the Dremel to start the hole then use tin snips once I can fit them in. When I go to make the cuts I’ll lower the tank as much as I can to create a good clearance.

Thanks for the pics those help a lot!

No problem; your timing was actually perfect, since I forgot I had created a second Photobucket account with an email I don't use. I just rediscovered it tonight, and have been pulling photos out of it. A lot of my timeline for that sedan had been lost!

It took some finagling, but I was able to do the pump swap with that hole. I'd make it a bit bigger next time around, for sure. My plan was to make an access panel for it like in other Hondas, all proper with rivnuts and a nice gasket-sealed lid, but I never got around to it before getting rid of the car.

I would use caution cutting a hole like that, I did on my old se and if you cut a little to far to the right like I did you will cut right through the tank. The good news is you can send a cutoff wheel threw the top of the tank and it wont explode or catch fire

I plan to drop the tank a bit to help mitigate the chance of hitting the fuel tank. But I need to go to the yard to get a donor panel to create a cover.

The rear passenger brake line. It goes a weird route and likes to rust / rot up there.

That's good to know.

I didn't see it rusted out when I dropped the tank, thankful this car has never seen salt.

This weekend I got busy with installing my black dash and center console. I will eventually pull all the unnecessary wires one day, but that wasn't this weekend. I happy with how it turned out, now I just need to get my hands on door panels and the rest of the interior.

If anyone has black interior they want to part with HMU!





Also got my new to me Tial 44mm wastegate, I bought an adaptor for now and took my carbide bit to the flanges to match the diameter of the wastegate. So there shouldn't be any bottle necking. I haven't had a chance to drive it yet, as it has been raining all weekend. But hopefully this solved the boost creep issue.



I got it for a great deal and the buy says it was only used for dyno tuning until he upgraded to a 60mm ( not sure how true that is, but it was clean in the discharge and around the firing pin. I also got a dump tube that fit perfectly with the set up. So I am happy
Dumps to the right of the downpipe and the fumes should clear the oil pan.
