    Default CNG in Honda civic EXI prosmetic

    Hello pak wheelers. I am looking to get my Honda civic EXi prosmetic on cng. I live in lahore and would appreciate if someone could recommend a good CNG installer. And i heard there are problems with the gears in the long run and have to change the gear box after a while. IS that true? Could some one share experience whose using CNG already in EXI prosmetic?

    yes u will have to change the transmission with every second oil change ...............
    .
    .ok lets get real.
    automatic transmission fluids should be changed periodically.i change every 30,000kms.u shouldnt face any problem if u do that to.
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    go ahead get cng and enjoy the best of economy and luxury. im using cng in my exi auto 2006 for 2 yrs. absolutely no prob. just some loss of power and few erratic shifts. nothing more. recently got 40k inspection from honda. replaced auto fluid at 40k never before that. (btw im likely ti sell off my exi in next month or so)
    sent from my HD2 without using the handset itself!!

    what are you wating for...

    exi prosmatec is the ideal match...
    i dont know about lahore...

    but i can recommend in islamabad if you plan to come..
    Do the environment a favour, Use less airconditioning .. and please walk to the shop to get a pack of cigarretes..its only a 3 min walk..

    Go to ftfs at faisal town. Its close to your place. U just need a 55litre cylinder or 60litre if u want to, a kit preferably landi renzo italy with big regulator (not the small one), dont go for landi renzo brazilian, its about 2k less but cheaper in quality, an emulater and a timing advancer, thats it. If u want u can get the lambda o2 sensor installed but in my opinion u can do good without lambda.

    u l feel about 25 percent loss in power in auto tranny but u l get used to it.

    u can check rates from kandan tøo and compare with ftfs. Installing cng in prosmatic is no big deal. Almost every workshop is doing it.
    Make sure they do not drill any hole in the trunk.

    Bigger regulartor kit. There are two types coming in market. One with a smaller regulator and anoter with bigger one. Both in landi renzo, about 1k difference in price. Go for bigger one.
    I think change the springs if u use ure cars back seat for two passengers. Otherwise leave it as it is if going for a light weight faber cyliner.
    i got my civics springs changed but i m not happy. Ride got bumpy. I got installed a faber cylinder in my second car cuore and didnt change springs or added spacers and it isnt giving any trouble in road or even spead breaker clearance even with four ppl. First install the cylinder and see the ground ane speed breaker clearance with four or five people onboard and if it isnt giving trouble i guess dont remove the original springs. But if u hv regular travelling with four ppl in the car then change the springs. Adding spacer is not a good idea.

    Minex(Aqib) got cng in his Prosmatec recently and he is very happy about how his car runs on gas. he even added lambda recently.setting prosmatec on cng is not a piece of cake, thats for sure. If Aqib is happy please check with him. cause most prosmatec owners $#%$#%W# at there cng settings
