Those shiny new endlinks look so nice. I love the look and feel of new upgraded suspension parts.

Also, what is the benefit of swapping our factory manifold for the RBC? I've seen that done a lost and just not sure why.

Most people swap over to the RBC for more top end power which is mostly suited for track days being that you're predominantly in the upper rpm (that's the reason I did it),

however with out adding a different vtc gear (a pinned 45 or a stock 50) and proper tuning you could lose a decent amount of mid range

I'll probably start removing the sound deadening once things get a little warmer. I use dry ice for this and doing it on a hot day typically works better. Will for sure make a post when I start that process.



The trunk area, rear speakers and rear seat belts have already been removed.
Forgot to respond but I'm on the stock 07 tsx TB which I believe is 64mm

And those endlinks look BEEFY I remember making some similar ones when I had my evo(s) definitely let us know if they go into production!

Yeah, Will's car is too good. This is only the start of it as he has just started bringing it out to shake it down.

Also completely forgot i took GoPro pics while at the track. Still need to go through my video footage.

Yeah, what Rough Draft said. The shorter runners and fatter plenum allow air to go into the engine better at high rpm. The longer runners the K24 comes with are good for everyday driving and and low end torque.

I did feel a drop in torque but it does feel a little better up top. I really need to get my car tuned with the 45 pinned VTC I have sitting in the garage.

I've also been waiting, not the first time I've heard a batch is right around the corner so I won't be getting my hopes up but definitely plan on getting one too if they do come out.
