Pictures not showing from Imageshack unfortunately. I simply removed two coolant hoses from the throttle body and connected them with a fitting. I did not noticed any performance gain and the intake air temperature reading didn't seem like it was measurably affected.
KTuner still have not figured out the 2015 Honda Fit ECU yet. It's still a work in progress. Once Ktuner figures it out, then I can get Vit Viper to start tuning my ECU. So I'm stuck for now. GE Fits are getting tuning though. You are in a much better position than I am.
I want to say yes I do. Unfortunately, the guys that post about intakes seem to like how the intake sounds (Loud) or at least like the ability to hear it. People who like quiet intakes and exhaust are few and far between. I know they are out there but I haven't read about many wanting that feature in an intake. BUT
Horsepower is horsepower!!! If an intake shows an increase in horsepower of stock, people will go nuts over it. I always make the intake I'm interested in. I have a bunch of bends and piping my garage I play with.
You may be on to something. Good luck! ;-)
