So just to give an update, I returned the head unit to stock because it was way too slow, and bought a tablet mount for the car to be able to stream movies and use my tuner app. Also added in a bunch of blue trim work to the doors and dash.

I actually didn't do the downpipe. I went with a glasspack resonator and muffler from magnaflow.
It gave me a deep tone, and less restriction in the exhaust pipe. I didn't want a raspy sounding car, as I will still use it as a family car when the kids and future wife are with me.
I have noticed some gains in the car since doing it and adding the ktuner.
I just would like to see another map come out for my model that would engage the VTEC even earlier, but, maybe in the future they will.

And also with the phone mount, I have it mounted to the driver side vent at all times, that way I can still videochat with my GF when I'm making long trips.

i have plans to install the downpipe with the stock exhaust system, since i dont like the noisy cars but i want to improve even more the handling of the car adding the rear sway bar from eibach since i already have installed the pro kits on it.

I'm gonna have to look into the downpipe then. I didn't know it still mounts to the exhaust system.

And I was thinking about the sway bar and all to get the tighter turns I'm wanting.

also you can consider add the Rear motor mount from hard race and the Type R subframe brace, those are very inexpensive mods.

Yeah I'll probably stay away from those. Lol
Not looking to drop too much money into it just yet.
Sway bar and torsion bar are my next thoughts.

Applied the lower door garnish as well as the aero package. I quite like how it looks with the tinted windows and dark wheels.

Throttle body coolan delete sounds very interesting, after my upgrade to the catted downpipe I'm having high IAT temperatures this can maybe mitigate this problem, can you share the process to do this please?
