    You really need to have the car tuned for a DP and PRL if I am correct if you install the PRL with no tune it will throw a CEL

    Yup it'll throw an emissions one for the DP and something else for the intake

    My personal advice would be to buy Hondata before anything else it's not cheap but without it everything else is pointless.

    You can put 10k in parts on your car but without a proper tune they are all just a waste of money and time.

    Hondata makes the difference. My car runs as quiet as it did stock at idle. I love it, it wakes up once Im getting on it.

    I should have done more research before I started buying parts I was just in such a hurry I ended up wasting a lot of money I must have spent $1,200 or better on different intakes alone. I went through several different sets of HID'S and so much other random stuff now I research everything before I buy it.

    I have the Ksport Kontrol Pros. They were like 865$ from corsport (same coil as D2's) and they ride incredibly smooth. I am very happy with the quality of them no doubt

    I just pulled some Megan's out of my Accord last weekend I will say with 100% honesty that's a brand I will never buy again I had them in a little over a year and they are destroyed literally fell apart in my hands as I was taking them out. So I am really gonna do some research before I pull the trigger on any coils.

    @Abbz8377 can you please tell me if I installed this correctly. I'm mainly just worried about the coolant bypass. A decent amount leaked out too as I was changing the hoses. I can't tell if I need to top off or not. I didn't get any check engine light so that's a good sign. Basically on the coolant bypass, you can see the top half. I plugged the bottom half into the black rail where the old line was, that's correct, right? Also, that small breather filter. Its kind of bent up because of the hose underneath it. I tried to push it down to bend a little but its not moving much. Is that ok?

    Just trying to make sure I installed all this correctly. Sorry if that first photo posted twice. I can't get it to delete. Here is a better picture of those bypass.

    Also what's the purpose of the little vacuum caps. I came to the part store and bought some but one of those ports had a tiny bit of coolant that leaked out when I put the caps on. Is coolant supposed to come out of these or is it taken care of by the bypass I did? Sorry for dumb questions. This crap just worries me lol

    The coolant bypass looks fine, the amount of coolant you lost should self bleed any air in the system out into the reservoir. The amount is really minor, just check the reservoir is at full and check WHEN COLD your radiator is topped of after a "bleed drive". I just used one of the stock lines and put a buffer between any rub points, looks clean and stock really. The caps are just used to keep any debris/bugs out and clogging your passages in your TB, some coolant will stay in there as you cant dump out every bit until you remove the TB and tip it. Not a bad idea but I don't plan to revert back to a heated TB so I didn't use any but if I did a blast of air through the passages will suffice.
