I love my 2015 Fit EX-L

It's mostly stock. I added rubber mats and cargo liner, LED lights in the cabin, Philips X-treme headlights, front bra to keep from getting rock chips on the hood and bumper. I just got new Michelin Premier tires.

My wish list:
Wilwood front brakes
Stiffer struts and springs
Sway bar

I don't think there are many things I can do, without breaking the bank, to add HP. So why try huh? I thought about one of those air filter do dads but gave up. Any bolt on HP you guys did?

ktuner is about it for added performance. Intake for better engine sounds.

Get a set of sticky summer tires, coilovers, poly suspension bits and enjoy. Great handling and MPG all in one!!

I don't think anyone has dyno results for the RV6 pipe, but it seems like I can take some of the hills on my commute in a taller gear after installing one. Has a somewhat unpleasant rasp for the catless version until you switch the muffler out, though.

I asked them about that, they said they didn't have a local car to use for a dyno run. I think they got someone to send them the factory part, took measurements from it, and sent him a prototype to check fitment. No idea who that was or if they're on the board, though.

8.5 sec. 0-60mph is pretty decent for a sub-compact!

Want it to go 1 sec. faster, don't think it's worth the effort and cost unless you want to track/autocross consistently.

Our household is loving it's daily useability. The wife takes it from me more often over her SUV as it's a no-brainer to park. Our sons love driving it cause it's so easy, smaller, and still spacious! To think, it's only a base LX manual at that!

A few recalls for this Mexican built GK, but for now, still going strong, reliable and totally easy on gas consumption. Am keeping this one till it dies!!!

That was me. Posted up a some info about it all. See link below.
Need GK to Test Fit RV6 Pipe

Yes it adds some power. How do I know? Tested it at the track. Some mph was gained (Used J's Racing non-catted for original test, in another thread). The same mph was maintained when I switched to the RV6 pipe except I had no check engine light. I could not feel the hp/tq difference. It was measurable though. I no longer dyno anything. Plus it was a CVT.
