Here's a small update for you all! I went ahead and ordered LED license plate and reverse light bulbs. I'm very happy with the results!

The part numbers, for those who may be interested, are listed below this text.

Super Bright LEDs license plate bulbs (P/N: 194-WHP6 | Temperature: 6000 K)

Super Bright LEDs reverse light bulbs (P/N: 7440-CW3W-G | Temperature: 6000 K)

I am happy to report zero fitment issues! Both the license plate and reverse light bulbs are plug and play.



Here's what the laser beams look like when activated:



There's a significant improvement in night-time visibility when using my rear camera.

I received my HKS Super Hybrid Filter yesterday!

P/N: 70017-AH016

Below this text is a link containing information on the HKS Super Hybrid Filter.

https://www.hks-power.co.jp/en/produ...ter/index.html



Contents of the box:





Minty!



The sticker made for a nice finishing touch. Overall, I noticed a slight improvement in throttle response as well as a slight increase in induction sound.

Is the HKS filter washable and reusable? I looked at getting one but no one seemed to know.

That's a great question! I was wondering the same thing, but I didn't find any concrete answers.

HKS super hybrid panel air filter - Civinfo

How to clean HKS Super Hybrid Air Filter? ? club.liberty.asn.au

I'll probably end up purchasing a new filter when the time comes.

Installed my Acuity Instruments shifter cable bushings today!



Installation was fairly straightforward. I did not have the right tools for the job, but I made it work. This would've been a lot easier with an extra pair of hands. Shifting feels more crisp now!



I also purchased a FEEL'S Honda TwinCam Works radiator cap.



This is a special piece for me because FEEL'S Honda TwinCam Works have built my favorite GK5.



Check out the link below for more information on the FEEL'S GK5!

Nice install. I'll have to give this a try. Have you tried a weighted shift knob? For me, it reduced, just about eliminated vibration and made shifting so much smoother. I wonder how both affect overall feel. (no gay innuendo).

Thank you! No, I’ve not had a chance yet. Stay tuned though!

Very nice build! Solid mods, and very nice future mod list. Great info too - especially love the Acuity shifter cable bushings, didn't even know about these, so thanks a lot for sharing! Spent too much on my Fit recently, but definitely adding this to a Christmas wish list

Oh and that FEEL's Fit is crazy! Saw a couple of photos a little while back, but had no idea what was under that hood. So awesome!
