Hey litz! It's been a month or so since you messaged me about it being a month or so since the install...
Install went great! Got everything figured out except for an issue with the emissions. My friend looked at the emissions code I am getting with his Honda computer and saw that it was running too rich. I recently reverted to my stock exhaust, primarily to reduce the droning freeway noise on a road trip this past weekend, but I was also hoping it may somehow help with the rich burn. After my entire road trip to and from Denver (I live in Albuquerque), the code DID go off, and for the first time in two months I could finally use Sport mode again, YAY!! But after half a day it came back on... hmmmm.
Thinking about getting a tune now. Or maybe I could access the PerfectPower piggyback (the one from Sprintex) and somehow modify the AFR there. I bought the required USB cord and downloaded the appropriate software from PerfectPower, but when we got the piggyback hooked up to the computer and opened the program it looked like we were completely locked out. We couldn't see any maps or really anything at all even. Maybe PerfectPower will have a passcode or something. Kevin from Sprintex did not have any advice. He did think the typhoon K&N intake and/or the ProTuning lab aftermarket exhaust may have something to do with it.
I like having the aftermarket exhaust off for now (that ProTuning lab 2.25" cat back gets very loud
) but come warm season I plan to switch back to the loud exhaust, throw on new performance tires, and take it to the track for some time attacks. With that in mind, I would like to wait to tune it until i have the exhaust back on. However, that means another couple month of running rich. i know rich is better than lean, but i do not know how rich it is and want to reduce any excess wear and tear. I just don't want to pay to tune it with the stock exhaust, then again with the ProTuning lab, exhaust then again if I ever sell the Sprintex.
Thanks for reaching out! (I am not sure how to make "litz" a smart link to your account)
