    Thanks. I will give that a try. I plan on installing my PRL intake sometime this weekend.

    If you are talking about the one that’s on the hard line, I just forced it off the line as I took off the stock inlet hose.

    Once everything else was disconnected i put a tiny bit of water and i slipped it off with the help of a flat head. Lubing it helps a LOT

    I ran just the front pipe for 8 months this year. After installing the intake the in cabin exhaust sound and drone was louder. Aside from the obvious bypass sound. Compared to stock the bypass valve relief sound is dramatically louder.

    PRL I have a request, will it be possible to obtain another intake hose that fits better on the turbo inlet?, Is this issue fixed on the second batch? Im highly interested on this.

    As we have stated there may be a slight gap (1-2mm) in order to take into account tolerances when installing. If this gap is larger than that we would ask that you reach out to us regarding this via email with photos so we can take a look, thanks!

    @PRL Motorsports is there anyway to order extra of just the button head cap screws? A few of mine have fallen off.

    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!

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