RE: Timing
I'd start with 12 deg BTDC. Wink

I wouldn't touch it until you get things dialed in, getting results and you're down to fine tuning, then I wouldn't change it more than a couple degrees.

99 honda, huh. I think it has a single band O2 sensor. Check it out on this site. E-mail bruce and he'll tell you if you've got wide band or narrow band. Either way the initial formula is sufficient HHO + EFIE = mpg gain. I like 1 lpm/ liter displacement; others say 1 lpm/2 liters engine displacement will work. Keep it simple: HHO, EFIE; when you get that perfected you can play with resistors on the AIT to change timing. Don't fall for the BS that if you use HHO you must retard timing under penalty of burnt pistons or valves; not true. Take it slow: change, measure; test again, measure. Accept or reject the change. Move on to the next change in the same methodical sequence. Keep us posted with you're results; we don't get too many Hondas. Whatever problems you run into chances are someone on this board knows the answer. Good Luck and keep "Happy motoring" alive and the American way.
