nevermind the power loss, you are breathing carbon monoxide! find and fix the leak asap!

i had the same problem in my teg. its most likely comeing from the e-brake area. go to a shop and have them patch it up before you get hurt as for power loss its very little 1-3hp at the most depending on the size of the leak.. . join team-integra.net

maybe you should worry more about carbon monoxide instead of losing horse power, its a 4 banger, its not fast, stop lieing to yourself, the only reason i tune my 4 banger is to cruise in, not make people think im fast.... describe the smell a little more though, i've never smelled exhaust inside the car before
