Did they Dyno it?
I have not installed it yet Ray, as I am waiting to get my header. I have the Injen CAI to install as well.
I will dyno before, and after the install (of everything) for sure :)
If you'd like to read about those who have done the install, click the link at the top, and scroll down to the bottom.

Most people are not familiar with the Hondata gasket and missing out on a very effective mod. My gasket will be here tomorrow. :cool:

Yeah -- how about giving us the skinny, Joker?

4-5% more power for only $60.....
I did check it out. Sounds very interesting, but.....things like this inevitably make me wonder:

If it's that cheap and that effective, why didn't Honda/Acura just use that as stock? I gotta believe they would have jumped at the chance to wind up with 210 hp (etc.) if they could have, for an extra few bucks.
(And if it costs only $60 aftermarket, you know it would have cost Honda/Acura a lot less than that to use it as stock.)

So I wonder if there's more here than meets the eye, including maybe even some disadvantage?

Larchmont, who has a funny feeling that Joker and JTso have the answer.

That is a very good question that I unfortunately can't answer Larch.
I can tell you though that the Hondata Gasket is proven :)

Well, in that case I think I'm gonna sit down a write a letter to Honda/Acura:

Dear Sirs:

As a great admirer of your corporation and the TSX in particular, I would like to offer you the possibility of a suggestion that will increase the car's power 4-5% for only a negligible cost. I mean, the feature would be of negligible cost, but in order for you to receive this information, a substantial consultation fee will be required. I await your reply.

Larchmont, who is always eager to be of service. :D

The Hondata gasket complements any CAI to dramatically lower intake temp. Additionally, by performing the throttle body coolant bypass mod and coated intake manifold, the effect is even greater.
