NYE came and I saw that it was out of preorder phase and the NYE price was $50+ cheaper than my preorder price. Took two weeks to ship, but its not bad. I wasn't happy with all the other alternatives that fetch almost the same price, and I thought this was the smartest design.
They used my car for the R&D. There was some issues with the design, which is why the release kept getting pushed back.

I really like the design of it and itís really well built imo.

Odd as in it is slipping/not grabbing as usual?

The clutch seemed to still be engaging fine but it developed this really strange vibration in the clutch pedal during engagement. It wouldn't vibrate if I pumped the pedal in neutral, but was extremely noticeable while shifting. It's a bit tough to describe but I would just say the pedal felt "wonky". When the dealer tore it down yesterday they said that the springs on the clutch plate seemed loose and that it may need a new clutch, flywheel, etc. The dealer told me that since the clutch is a wear item that they need to get authorization from North American Honda to warranty it. I'm waiting for the final word from them on Monday.

I'd be surprised if they replaced that under warranty. Replacing the flywheel would be unusual. Pressure plate, release bearing, and sic are the usual replacements - all at once.

Sucked a bunch of oil into my intake mani:

Ported my intake manifold last night. After, idle was rough, 18+AFR, but WOT was fine. I posted on ktuner and he said I probably have a leak after the MAF

I did a drive up and down the freeway with the least street driving I could do, turned the AC on and off, all the gears. It still runs great everywhere except stop lights. At one stop light it started smoking so I went home and Ktuner suggested the unmetered air leak..

After the obvious reply, I got some throttle body cleaner and attempted to spray around a bit. It revved the air cleaner element, so I thought I would be able to find the leak similarly. The smoking got real bad real fast so I decided to just pop off the IM and see if maybe one of the gaskets came off a runner etc. After the short ram intake came off, the throttle body looked a little oily. Whatevs. When I took off the intake all this oil came out of the intake, probably like a half cup. What could be causing the sucking in of that much oil?

While I had the intake off for porting, I pulled the valve cover off and checked all valve lash too, that was easy and presumably non-interference. I am thinking it must be something I left off or plugged up but I can't see it. There are two hoses that go to the intake, one from thee brake diaphragm, one to the block (lPCV?), A third hose goes from the valve cover to the short ram after the MAF, before the throttle body. Anyadvice is welcome regarding where oil can come from and into the intake. Cheers!

Interesting. I'd be pretty irked if they don't replace it under warranty, as the car only has 31k on it.

Fixed my oil/intake problem. Pulled intake back off car. Washed in sink in soapy water. Blew clean with compressed air. Reinstalled and made sure not to overtorque gaskets. Problem solved!

No idea

Pretty sure the intake manifold and or the throttle body were over torqued and allowing unmetered air. Maybe that and some clog in one of the four vacuum hose ports caused an imbalance in the PCV system? After washing and submerging the intake in hot soapy water, and blowing dry with compressed air, and nor over torqueing the gaskets, all was well...
