The Windshield Washer conversion is for Canadian cars. The clutch line is removed and replaced during installation, so if you have a MT and want an upgrade on your line, it's an easy install.
Is it possible to return to stock when doing it on a Canadian model?

We've been receiving quite a few inquiries about Race MAF gains in comparison to the Street MAF housing so we decided to do another back-to-back test for you guys.

This car was equipped with our Cobra CAI, downpipe, front pipe and @KTuner 23 PSI 93 Octane basemap for testing.

We performed 3 consecutive dyno pulls with the Street MAF housing starting at 175 degree coolant temps to around 180 degrees. The car put down similar consistent numbers within a 3 horsepower and 4 ft/lb tq window.

We performed 3 consecutive dyno pulls with the Race MAF housing using KTuner's Race MAF basemap starting at 175 degree coolant temps to around 180 degrees. The car put down similar consistent numbers within a 1 horsepower and 5 ft/lb tq window.

We used "Run 4" as an average comparison due to identical run conditions. The Race MAF provide a 4-5 hp and 2 ft/lb tq gain at peak and 10hp/10tq gains throughout the midrange over-top of the Street MAF. Another thing to note is the fact that knock control continued to decrease with the Race MAF housing. We started the runs at .65 knock control and continued improve to .45.

In case anyone was unaware, KTuner now offers safe and effective Race MAF housing-specific basemaps for our cold air and short ram intake systems. The Race MAF housing provides nice little gains up top and very notable gains throughout the midrange.

I would be all about such a program as well. I doubt that it will work though - I don't imagine that they'd be able to do anything with the Street MAF's that we would all trade in.

you can buy the 'upgrade' package, but it's way more $$$ than you'd think it would be

I emailed ktuner yesterday and they told me that they do not have a basemap for the non si cobra Race MAF.
The Race maf calibration will be included in the tuning software you buy.

Honda sensing really has me upset, would the short ram intake be the only option for the 2019 Sport?
