Jim - yes my car does tend to run rich, but somehow when I added in the K&N filter and got on the dyno the a/f ratio was near perfect throughout the graph. But before that it did run rich, thus making me replace the plugs sooner. Interesting............
3-6 cranks does kinda seem a lot for me, my previous car was a 5th gen Prelude and that **** takes like less than a crank to start so yeah.
R1Outcast - What I mean by 3-6 cranks is: Put the key and turn it once, let it crank a few times and then it starts. But that only happens in the morning. Oh well.
