    Was actually a tire in the middle of the freeway. I either ate the tire or cause a crash .

    Waiting to see what kind of suspension damage happened. Nothing that I could tell happened to the front end.

    Gave her a bath then added the "Canadian" VTEC Turbo sticker. I figure in Northeast Ohio I'm close enough to Canada to justify it :patriot:

    The ID is bigger. OEM IN: 62mm OEM OUT: 59mm (at turbo) Rampage Ti IN: 68mm Rampage Ti OUT: 63.5mm (at turbo). It should also provide lower IAT's.

    Reinstalled my jailbroken ECU last night after returning from a weekend trip in LA. A couple days beforehand, I discovered my hotel was just a stone's throw from American Honda HQ... and a few blocks from Hondata! The CTR is my daily driver, so shipping time was the only thing holding me back, making this opportunity too good to ignore.

    HUGE props to the Hondata team for squeezing it in before close on Friday afternoon! Special thanks to Kevin for accommodating this strung-out tourist, you really made my trip :bow:

    Next up: FlashPro!

    :( Sorry to learn. Cracked like egg shell. Staying stock or planning to go higher profile like 245/35?

    You were able to do a walk-in at Hondata or did you go thru a tuner?

    I called ahead as soon as I knew I'd be in town. They said I could drop it off and pick it up next business day (Monday, after I left). After a little begging, they had it ready at the end of the day so it could fly home with me. It wasn't their usual protocol so hopefully I wasn't too bothersome... I'll have to send them some coffee, or something.

    After over 7900 miles my maintenance light came on for 15% over the weekend so I called the shop I like to go to and they got me in sooner than later with an appointment. It's like buttahhhhhhh hehehe :D The shop owner took a photo of the car and as he was completing the transaction he told me he took a photo to send to his daughter; to convince her to get one. He was telling me her horror stories with her WRX after she hit 50k miles. From what he described of what she was looking for I told him the R would be perfect for her. :D

    Had Krown rustproofing done since it's going to be my daily driver and NE Ohio has 4 seasons...Spring, Summer, Fall and SALT. Best was when they called me to let me know it was done and the lady goes "your baby is ready" :rofl:.

    Swapped out my RV6 RMM, with the really cold weather hitting my car had too much vibration and resonance for me, especially in the morning when really cold. Since I daily it when the weather is nice it just started getting to me. I swapped the Perrin inserts into my original mount and installed it today. A real pain in the butt with my RV6 downpipe and 3" front pipe!! Well worth it though! Next to no vibrations, I can't believe how much more I like the car like this! Under hard acceleration it didn't wheel hop and it put the power down nicely. Great way to add control for super cheap! Definitely one of my favorite mods now. I thought I was just doing this for the winter but if it keeps everything under control when I change to a 18"wheel and sticky tire setup next spring I'm just going to leave it in there!
