Hello all I hate to come on here and probrably ask something simple but I have a 1996 civic ex with a D16y8 turbo, I am experiencing what is like a limp mode when wot or high load acceleration at 3500-4500 rpm. What happens is the car feels like it’s hitting boost cut /2 step but none are activated (using Neptune RTP), if I unhook the battery for a few minutes, reconnect, and drive the car it drives great for the first few pulls, then goes into the limp mode like state from above. I have traced wiring and checked for proper values at the VSS, vtec solonoid, oil pressure switch, ect sensor, alternator wiring,and even the crank sensor which isn’t even used due to ob2 harness to obd1 ecu. If anyone has any ideas or anyway I can go about trying to fix this, thanks

Is the car tuned or on a basemap, is there any check engine lights coming on, do you have 2 step activated and speedo working properly, have you checked your plug gaps to make sure it's not blowing out the spark

Car is tuned afr wise only on 3 psi,retard .5 degree per pound of boost, 2 step not enabled and Speedo communication to ect is reading what it says on the dash, plug gap is at .028 on ngk bkr7e, Do you think this is something he ate two would be fixed with a tune because it is intermittent and works sometimes? Just don’t want to take it to the dump and be unable to tune

.5 degrees per psi is too advance for your setup on pump gas I'd start at .9 and advance from there once you get on the dyno.

I'd also gap the plugs down to .022 and see how it reacts what's the afr are you dataloggong during the event when it happens and can you post a screen shot of that datalog...

Datalog these values, rpm, tps, vss, ign timing, iat, ect, afr

Thankyou guys, I’ll throw some fresh plugs gaped at .022, afrs under boost are 11.8-12.5. I will definitely get some screen shots and post them when I can. Again Thankyou guys
