P0401 EGR Valve Port Cleaning
This is my DIY for clearing the CEL code P0401 (EGR Insufficient Flow) on a
98 Honda Prelude.
In cars with OBD2 if the EGR valve is restricted by carbon deposits it will
detect that and throw a CEL. To get rid of that CEL you must clean out the
carbon to allow flow.
After combustion occurs within the engine it creates Exhaust. Gas from the Exhaust straight from the engine is very bad for
the air. The EGR valve recaptures that Exhaust and runs it through the combustion
process again, which lowers the temperature of the fumes (Exhaust gas) and lowers the amount of pollution
exiting into the atmosphere.
If you don't fix it you won't pass SMOG in California. You may experience
rough idling and poor acceleration.
Get your "EGR port plugs" from Honda. They will have it.
Removing the injectors are important to allow clearance to the port plugs.
When you pull out the injectors you might as well clean them since they are
Slide hammers make pulling the port plugs out easily.
Drill with a bit the size of your tap. Drilling halfway through the port
plug to should be enough distance to fully grab the port with the slide
If after you clean your ports and valve the CEL has not been cleared, you
EGR valve maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.

HONDA V-Tec Operation

Describes the operation of the HONDA V-Tec variable valve timing system.
Like never seen before, this animation goes into details on the mechanical
principle of the V-Tec system. The Honda V-Tec system is a dual setting
variable valve timing system. It is meant to give high efficiency and low
power at lower RPM and high power and low efficiency at higher RPMs. There
have been a few incarnations of V-Tec, which came out in the late 80's, but
their principle is the same. See it all here with high quality visual

Prelude vs. Civic Si
Just some street fun... 1994 Prelude Si-VTEC (JDM H22a) Vs. 2007 Civic Si
(K20Z3) 0-90mph, yes that was a fire ball.
1997 BB6 Honda Prelude Mugen Twin Loop Exhaust Zoom H1 H22 VTEC
After many tests and hours of driving around at a local track, I've
narrowed down the most decent settings with the Zoom H1 in order to capture
the sound of the Mugen Twin Loop Exhaust. I did the best I could with the tools,
software and my current knowledge. I still think this is a terrible video
but I've been trying so hard to capture the right balance of engine and Exhaust note in one clip that I'm
thinking I require more mics in order to capture the sound one is able to
hear in person within the cabin of the vehicle. So this video will have to
do for now until I master this stuff.
