I used 3m tape on the gas pedal and the aftermarket pad has been there for 3 years and counting. I wasn't sure about drilling into the plastic pad

Based on experience with our two previous Civics - seventeen years each - I'm going to buy pedal pads now, while they're available.

Resonator delete

Got tired of the stock sound and got my resonator removed. Now my car has a nice burble upon startup, and after-fire pops in first gear upon deceleration, and downshift crackles as well which sound so sweet. Also if I roll on and off the throttle from 2.5k up to 4k and let off I get a series of crackles that can't help but put a smile on my face.

As for drone there is absolutely none which I am happy about.
Only thing is all these new sounds are not heard very well from inside the cabin unless all windows are down . A aftermarket exhaust will change all of that and amplify all these new sounds I have revealed from my Fit.

Edit: Bonus Tunnel Run footage (pls excuse the granny shifting)

Aside from screaming "tastless rice", they feel really nice compared the squishy rubber.
Looks like it really closes that gap between the brake and makes the accelerator pedal more accessible. Did it move the accelerator pedal closer to you as well?

For this matter, you should go with this....


It has 3 different positions and it puts the pedal closer to the driver even in the stock position setting.... in have it on my GK5 and the difference is very noticeable!!

Oh yeah! I have that one as well heel-toe all day haha. Just was wondering if these aftermarket pads did much to fix the gap for less moolah

just found out. BitEdit. and using ScanXL for the backend logging.

tweaked vtc angles & advanced timing of 20degrees on regular pump gas. didn't suffer low end loss with the current exhaust setup due to the stock airbox with k&n filter, i might be changing to a bored throttle body

Bought a set of HFP Wheels for $200 dollars. They're a bit scuffed up, but in great shape. Planning on repairing the scuff marks and powder coating the wheels black chrome.

winter tire switchover - general altimax arctic 12s 185/65/15, with some Heliums...dropped 10lbs per corner vs '18 Sport wheels - car is transformed. ride quality went from cement truck to plush, car wants to go, turn and stop now. definitely going to run 15s next summer as well

too bad you have black rims... cannot tell what style they are.
black alloy or steel rims look the same when you just glims at them :|. Otherwise your fit look cool

I'm putting the snows on one of the Fits today - possible 9" of snow by tomorrow.

What kind of wheels saved you 10 lb? Ah, I see! The wheels are named Helium. Clever. I thought maybe you put "some Helium" in the tires - like some people do with nitrogen.

konig helium's are indeed light

for those of you who seek lighter .... konig dial-in come in at 10.9lbs a pop, and are 15x7 (whereas the helium are 15x6.5). bonus = the dial in's are "flow formed / flow forged" , and should make for a stronger wheel.

I'm sure they look great in the day time, or in an area with better lighting .... or if the op had a better camera that takes great shots with low light

They're 11.4lb, and $100 ea...with the General snow tire they're 30lbs. steelies would have been 18lbs and $60 each...the factory setup, 16" Sport rims (also in black lol) are 40lbs,

love the Dial Ins as well but didn't want to go 7" for 185 snows..will def run 15x7 in the warm weather...
