    It all started when I was looking for my next car last year. When I found the perfect Fiji Blue FA5 down at Preston Nissan Dealership in Hurlock, MD. The drive there was crazy long but well worth it. It had 80k miles on it when I bought it but it's a Honda who's counting. I decided to name this baby of mine Sonic since it's blue and it will be boosted later. Anyway car is bone-stock & unmolested. Exception on the unknown fog lights on the car when I bought it and unknown pnp hid lights. Forget to add previous owner painted calipers red /: ew.

    Taken in the driveway with my iPhone 5 after getting back from the dealership.

    I love it, if I had to I would buy it all over again. I can't wait until I boost this already.

    If you want completely stock numbers leave it off. But it will make about 5-6whp more most likely with the full race

    That's always good! What you could do is do one base line pull and then reflash the ECU and do another pull with that and see what you pick up
