    I just purchased a 2018 Hatchback Sport Touring and plan to use my Flashpro for the default CARB 6+ boost. I am not mechanically inclined so I'm just now learning about replacing the air filter as an added boost. Can someone help me understand better?

    What is a recommended air filter replacement to pair with the Hondata?

    Will the flash I choose depend on which air filter I use (I see options for Injen but not quite sure if that's the same)?

    What are any advantages/disadvantages to doing this?

    Are there any other little sub $100 enhancements that can be done?

    Thanks!

    If you're talking about a drop in filter like AEM or aFe or K&N, just run the base CARB tune. The specialized tunes are for full aftermarket intakes.

    Ok, that's what I was thinking. Any thoughts on which is better?

    Any other things that can be done for performance on the cheap?
