    Default low pick up in civic.

    Guyz I recently bought honda civic 1990-91. Overall the car seems well maintained and even its silencer gives out water but I feel its pick up is not good as compared to HOnda's. I feel lack of power although when only single person is sitting in the car. One more thing I found out is that its AIR INTAKE is blocked more than half using TAPE, I found it strange? BTW its engine is D12B (1200cc).

    Please suggest me how can I increase its pick up in some decent way...

    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    Is it on CNG ? then its normal to have its air intake blocked by tape(something to do with CNG setting)
    secondly get its setting done from a good workshop get the tuning and air filter change. that all you can do.

    if performance improved good other wise live with it.

    and if you can afford to run it on petrol even better.

    and plz compare it with the same model honda's not the newer models

    U fell underpower on petrol or CNG or both....if CNG is the issue then get its setting done from a good tuner.
