Not sure if your area falls the ECU check also. Here in California they check if your ECU has been tampered(modded). California always start shit up and other states will soon follow. Also not a lot of aftermaket companies want to pay CARB for those E.O # (like PRL)
Changing your air filter is one of those things that "we" car enthusiast do first to our car. Whether it makes a lot of power difference or not. Whether it's a drop-in or full intake set (usually to look good at car shows) we do it anyways. Tuning and a dyno run will really show any...
You got to remember, "those" guys who buys the FL5 now at the ridiculuos price are usually the one that has a YouTube channel and help paid for the car through their channel by having content. So with their regular job(if any) is the reason they paid that price. "To be one of the first"
I have an Invidia R400 exhaust that came with the mid pipe(the one after the Cat). I was wondering if other after market exhaust that doesn't come with a mid pipe be installed using the Invidia mid pipe. Like, if the Greddy HG Supreme SP can be installed using the Invidia mid?
Exhaust post has been beaten to death. Sound/tone are dependent on the person. Some say "it's to drone" while some say it's not. Attend some car shows and that is the best way to figure out which one is to your liking. That's what I did.
I don't like it when some of these "reviewers" describe the FL5 a "mature" looking compared to the FK8. THERE'S NOTHING MATURE about this car. It's a Civic. They should say : "a more subtle design." Too me the term "mature" describe cars like Audi,BMW 5-7 series and Lexus. My 2cents.
Wait....your in Philly, why would you be concern if its CARB legal. The "C" is California. I would check your local emission standard and find out. Unless California is that powerful that they dedictate what other states can and can't do.
The CTR has always been FWD. Hasn't deviated. What you should have quoted: "dismissing the CTR because they put an EcoBoost in it." I never really like when car manufacturers pass a car along when it's "core" is actually something else. Remember back about the Starion/Conquest TSI. Now you...
I bought this one and seems to work pretty well. Video quality is pretty clear.
By the owner's manual it does say "91 octane recommendation" and using lower octane, you will lose performance. I wouldn't use 87 on my car. My R does get pretty good MPG. I had to put it in "comfort" for a couple of mile cause the road here sucks.
