    Of course, you could always consider an upgrade of the internals at this point!

    Nonetheless, I'd go with a second opinion aka Vit

    Not that I doubt Mr tran but sometimes even the most savvy miss things

    Primary or Secondary O2 Sensor ? Because if on the primary O2 Sensor this more than likely may have been the cause.

    So you had 60k miles on your car, put a bunch of bolt ons and a ecu tune, got a knock, and told the dealership it was their fault?

    They said they would handle the problem once it's theirs.

    How many miles did it have on it? I guess I see both sides on that one. It was out of warranty. But if it had a knock already why didnt you take it to the dealer sooner? Even if it was under warranty they would deny the claim because it had been modded.

    Indeed, sucky all the way 'round. Hope you have better luck with the new cars man. Take care and stick around if you feel like it. Keep us up to date on the new rides and such. Especially if you get back into a new Honda at some point.
