If you're going in for a body-kit go for something that is similar to the original kit offered by Honda.
Remove the logos and get them chromed and give the car a good polish.
Keep the car original.
Absolutely Spot On! i've been telling you this since day 1!

Just a simple question, is your AC working properly. (if you increase the rpm by the accelerator).?

Check / clean your throttle body. Also take a look at the air con idle control valve, the FICD was always a problem with my 118NE.

Default ohc air conditioner problem

hi friends i have an ohc 1999 model. the problem is that the air conditioner is not that chilly the cooling is not much . i think this could be due to slower blower speed as temperature at vents is pretty low but cabin is not so cold. i got the ac serviced and gas topped up. tha e other thing is that the compressor cuts off after some time. it cuts off sooner at low blower speed .

Looks like the suction filter (if there is one) is choked or the evaporator coil is clogged.
Hope all your controls are at correct settings.
