    At least that much, that's probably a low estimate. I know after I did it, my tires would light up in 5th gear on the freeway at 60 if I nailed it.

    i sure can... pop your hood. look on your throttle body you will see three little hoses coming out near the top take them off and loop them together, shut your hood, go back in and fasten your seat belt put on your helmet ( your going to need it for sure) then take it to the track and killz some HONDUHS.

    The first mods I did that were easy and well worth it were re routing the coolant through the throttle body, get a little piece of tubing and connect the two hoses together so it doesnt run throught the throttle body. it gives you a cooler air charge and you only need it to keep it from icing over if you live in a very very cold climate, and then converting to an electric fan from the clutch fan. These two things dropped 2 tenths in the quarter (granted it was a 17.00, but hey it was stock)
    and unlike you guys teasing the gullable about the EGR mod, Im being serious this really does help

    What I did to bypass the coolant through the throttle body and ISCV is use one of the hoses (the one that goes from the throttle body to the bypass tube around the block), pull it underneath the intake mainfold and twist it and get it to slide over the port on the front side that goes into the manifold and head. Here's a picture...



    There's no additional stress on the hose, so there shouldn't be any problems with doing this mod in this way!

    Gage, try a different shift point. If you're usually in third at 40-45, either run second out a little longer or upshift to fourth, and see if the noise persists. Methinks you'll find it's drivetrain/suspension/wheel/tire/cupholder related. Good luck.
