you should just pick up a si intake manifold from the junk yard and go mpfi. And then use a pm6 to tune it with turbo edit but what do I know.

TurboEdit

Im not too familiar with the vacuum advanced distributors but something tells me that vacuum advance and boost dont go together too well.

i dont know what year this guy's winter beater is but, if its an EF it isnt vacuum advance

1G tegs, 3G Civics, and 1G Crx's were the last i knew of to have vacuum advance ignitions
