Hi volume intake, bigger turbo titanium inlet pipes, and charge pipes hot and cold are all in now. Car pulls like a freight train from low and spools even faster than before. Hondata traction control management helps but need another tweak to my custom tune cuz it’s making me loose traction a little again.

Do all 3 kits and see why this is so damn good! PRL has louder swooshes too...

The pic doesn't do the color justice, but I replaced the pale grey ground effects stripe I had with a metallic blue. Car needs a proper wash before I go back out and take full body pics of it.

Same test at cruising 85F ambient for Mishi and 81F ambient for PRL. IAT/MAP is even more critical.

Link for this color striping? Looks like it'll be a fairly close match to Sonic Grey!

Purchased from here. Note that it's not 3M scotchcal (which is what I had previously and was high quality), but went ahead and gave this a shot since they had some colors I really liked. First impression is good so far.

Went with 'mist blue metallic' for the color. The hue might be similar to sonic grey, but the metallic flakes in the stripe will def make it look different IMO.

I haven't been following closely to what all you have done but do you think with the charge pipes and intake addressed, this has solved a big portion of the overheating issues at the track?

After daily driving my Type R since October. I decided to pick up another car to keep from putting as many miles on it.
Wood grain vinyl should be here next week.

I don't have that setup, but I doubt it would answer the problem...seems like a better flow of air to the radiator or better/aftermarket radiator and/or oil cooler would answer those problems

Um, wow. I've been looking for a reason to get this and switch out the Mishi, but couldn't really justify until riiiight now. That'll do!

yeah. it should be more coolant temps and oil temps over the intake temps that is an issue at the track. Although a lower intake temp would be nice.

I also dont doubt the performance of the PRL intake but a 80 degree iat difference? I just don't see that happening. I never seen temps that high (160 deg) cruising even when i had the garbage injen a year back or so in this california summer unless the engine was turned off and was cooking under the hood.

I agree.....highly doubtful honestly.
