I haven't checked and I don't see record of that done in the past... However, I don't hear anything unusual. I've done valve adjustment on my S2000 and saw little improvement.
Is there a DIY for the ISF or know the clearances for the valves?

Edit: found the DIY here... a lot more comprehensive than I thought!

Great deal. I get 26 mpg on the highway also. The ballast in the headlight is more than likely burnt out due to the water. Mine was. great pickup. I'm curious to see how much longer it lasts. Get a good detail on that sucker. I'm also curious on the engine compression numbers.

Interesting discovery yesterday while vacuuming the car. The driver heel area carpet is not only worn all the way through, some of the metal has been worn down as well! The previous owner cut a piece of old floor mat and stuffed it underneath to prevent further damage. I guess the previous owner went through several sets of IS F floor mats. This would explain the extra set of rear mats in the trunk! I've seen worn carpets due to high heels, but this is a first!

That's pretty much how my S2K floormat/carpeting is. I ended up getting one of those Figs heel plates after I got tired of replacing all the floor mats because of holes. I'll prob do the same with the F eventually.

Looks like the floor mat unintended acceleration, ECU reflash recall was done, as the smaller gas pedal is now installed. That's the one recall I will never get done!

I just checked my car and I have that newer pedal. Looks like the previous owner had it done also.

Yeah same thing flowrider said, they wont sell you an old part number if a recall replaced something. You'll have to find a wrecked ISF to get that original pedal again
