2018 Touring 2.0 T, 10-speed automatic, Steel Metallic ext. w/Black int.
-Tint 35%
-FlashPro Tuned
-Takeda Intake system ordered
To do list:
-LED interior lights
-Window chrome trim blackout
-Debadge
-magnum flow air filter?
I just ordered the Takeda Momentum intake system and will install next week. I wanted to keep a log of upgrades to track progress and get feedback. Got into my 2018 Touring back in June and I really like it (hate the rattle from the HUD, will do the $1 store fix ASAP). So far I've tuned it with the FlashPro, tinted the windows and installed car seats. I've been referencing these threads so much, I figured I should join in.

following your build. excited to hear about your thoughts on ktuner when you get it
Thanks. It’s already tuned with the Hondata FlashPro, stage 2. And then the intake. Definitely noticed throttle response, huge torque gain and would guess it’s probably going a bit more than 300+ HP. A lot more fun to drive and curious to maybe run a 1/4 with it

How does your intake sound? Can you hear the bypass valve more than factory? Any chance for a sound clip? I'm on stage 2 on my touring and am torn between intakes..

I can't seem to attach the video but, yes, I can definitely notice the louder release valve. Seems to be loudest in Sport mode. I was torn too with the exposed filter vs. this Takeda. I just thought the Takeda looked cool.

Updated to do list:
-LED interior lights
-Window trim chrome delete and bottom of doors. Roof wrap too?
-Black deckled spoiler
-Blackout the exhaust finishers
-PRL downpipe and then maybe exhaust


Installed the black sport grille and black chrome accept piece this afternoon. Before and after:

If you ever figure out how to get rid of the bottom chrome strip, please let us know... or at least me. I have the exact same car (‘19) and that bottom chrome strip bugs the hell out of me.
Good looking ride though. Keep up the good work.
