My Fit has now become the hubby's car, and it only took him a week of driving it before he ordered an aftermarket exhaust, haha. Now we just have to wait for a break in the weather to install it.

Had a shop drill out the broken screw from my sprintex manifold for the map sensor. The only problem is they had a hard time getting it drilled out as sprintex uses grade 12.9 m6 screws for it. I don't really blame them but now the holes don't mach for the map sensor. Would my best bet be to block off the hole and use one of the back ports for an external map?

Hello JerrySFL,

Thank You

Pcv valve symptoms

Intermittent rough idle, oil leaks, pressure from dipstick tude.
all of the symptoms were intermittent , After I pulled the PCV valve and shaked it you would hear the ball inside getting stuck. I installed a new valve and cleaned up the old one to use in one of my other Hondas .

I had problem with Crazy Turn On POP on my audio system, and I solved it with PAC-TR12. I also add Solen Capacitor to further protect my Tweeters:

Hello,
very nice color combination. I always thought you owned a GK, I never knew you owned a GE

Hey; thanks for the kind words! You're not wrong, haha. I used to own a GK, but I sold it back in December and unintentionally picked up a GE in January.

Why are you assuming people don't already know that? Especially since there'd be no reason to swap to the JDM Sport version... with them being the same as the USDM base/sport version.

Haven't you thought to consider people swapped to it just because they like the way it looks... just like how you like the aftermarket one?

Personally, I kinda liked the clear tail light from the Fit Shuttle (Hybrid?). But in the end, I bought an aftermarket set from Rakuten (smoked version)...

You hit the nail on the head so hard; thank you for taking the words right out of me!

Those smoked tails look really nice btw!

I'm not assuming, I'm just stating my opinion that i like the aftermarket LED one than the stock base fit tail lights.
I know people know but some don't and I also like the base model tail style more than the rs one,it has bulging part that makes it cute like in the headlights.
RS one also has the fake reflectors without function, and yes the Hybrid one is a lot better too! Fit shuttle is iconic at night, you know it's a shuttle behind!
I like bulges, looks cute! It snowed yesterday and my headlight looks like an anime! lol

Cleared the headlights and wrapped so it won’t get hazy again. Ordered led rear turn signal. Planning to slowly do more to the Fit
