  1. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    There's no way to efficiently make a connection near the plug, which is why it's recommended to grab the wire in the main firewall bundle. The errors exist for two reasons - Keyfob isn't in the vehicle and bypassing VSA, however take-over is not possible, regardless of configuration, and no one...
  2. Intercoolers, Black or silver?

    Are the charge pipes black powder-coated as well? If so, you may want to look into some sort of basalt fiber insulation to wrap around them as it's likely they're going to increase the temperature of the air going through them due to the physics of how efficiently black absorbs heat Our engine...

  4. Snow tires? or high performance all-seasons?

    Whether you should use all-season or winter tires depends mainly on the normal ambient air temperature where you live during winter, with the second factor being if it normally snows there, as the rubber compounds are completely different and temperature-sensitive. All-season tires: are...
  5. Intercoolers, Black or silver?

    @TSI Unless you want to increase the IAT, any color but black should be used [physics] and there are other ways to protect it from the elements, such as a clear enamel spray, however aluminum doesn't rust (its oxide layer is the aluminum color we see). Keep in mind the bottom of the engine bay...
  6. Protection against Car Jacking

    @CT0760 CompuStar Alarm and Remote Start with Drone Mobile (7000AS/CM7000 brain, not the DC series), as their premium subscription has GPS tracking and you can buy by the month (3yr basic for ~140, pay monthly for premium when you need it), being accurate to within a few feet. There are a...
  7. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    It's more than that... CompuStar Alarm and Remote Start brains (7000AS/CM7000) are more akin to Arduinos and can control anything in the vehicle that's controlled via analog voltage via PICs and POCs (e.g. rolling up and down windows with the remote, activating LED lighting with the remote, etc...
  8. Is It totaled?

    Why would anyone trust random folks online when you have no ability to verify their qualifications to make such assertions? By that ideology, we should all upload brain scans and ask random folks whether we have brain tumors - it simply lacks common sense. Total losses aren't determined by...
  9. Is It totaled?

    That makes no sense in the context of what was asked. There's only one person who can tell you if your vehicle is a total loss, and that's your insurance adjuster, making it a waste of time for anyone to guess (why folks are is just as baffling), as this isn't about opinions, it's fact-based...
  10. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    It's not about whether you warranty your personal work, it's whether the equipment warranty is still intact if you're installing them outside your work, something you should be aware of if you install FirsTech, as it must be installed by a dealer to be warrantable, and I was asking whether DEI...
  11. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    Will you be doing this on your own time or at your job, as I'm assuming DEI wouldn't warranty the work if it's not done by a dealer, with a receipt showing it installed by a dealer?
  12. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    Are you a DEI dealer? There's only one thing on the CTR that's different than a non-CTR install, which is the CPSS wire must be broken during crank (it requires three wires to be cut, not two: starter [UH FB Relay Bank A2], ignition [BCM F2], and CPSS [firewall bundle exiting driver's side])
  13. Is It totaled?

    Why are you asking random people on the internet whether your car is totaled or not? Have some common sense and contact your insurance company, which is the only right answer to your question. Nothing a single person says on here regarding your question matters, so again, why are you asking...
  14. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    If it's not showing the temp on the remote, the thermistor is likely not plugged into the brain, however it could also be the remote is defective since it's also not displaying a countdown. The thermistor is easy to check if you know where the brain was installed to, as it's about 3" long, but...
  15. Type R Remote Start Install issue

    I updated the install PDF on my GitHub, as it's easier to maintain that than editing my original reply on forums, and I also have all FK8 related docs and schematics for the install on there as well. I did come across someone who tapped the CPSS wire (which I assume is the bypass being referred...
  16. Using the OEM amp for clean line out(s).

    Due to the inherent risk of such a mod without access to the PCB schematics or a good understanding of precisely how the tuner/amp interacts with all the upstream data communications, one would be wise to ask themselves whether the financial risk/reward is really worth it e.g. is it worth...
  17. Type r misfiring cylinder 1

    There are if this/then that troubleshooting steps for this, and every other issue, on TechInfo.Honda.com (SIS subscription - month ($125) is the best price if only needing temporarily, else it's $25/day), which is the exact same information a dealer would use to troubleshoot via HDS.
  18. Using the OEM amp for clean line out(s).

    US model also includes the tuner within the amplifier, unsure if Euro versions do the same. The replacement sub must match the impedence expected by the amplifier, else you'll fry it and/or the sub. Do not cut the door skin opening for the speaker, as this is why speaker plates and spacers...
  19. Wrapped Cars and Law Enforcement

    I was stating a fact, which I've repeatedly stated you can fact check by calling your local law enforcement offices. You appear to have missed the contextualized words in each post, such as "generally", or the actual sentence you're referring to that you seem to keep misreading: "With 100%...
  20. Wrapped Cars and Law Enforcement

    You may want to re-read what I wrote: AFAIK patrol officers do not have a mission objective to look for vehicles where the color appearance doesn't match the registration, unless there was an actual reason for doing so, such as consistent auto thefts in the area. If you believe this to be...
