So the dealer said the spring cant be ordered by itself and the whole pedal must be replaced. Has to be shipped overnight but is covered under warranty.

I would like to use the shocks from the new Fit Sport, but it looks like they are only available with the springs as well.

I considered a civic hatch, but the Fit's seats were much more comfortable for me and I had a LOT more room all around. I'm about 6'4, 34" inseam. The Fit lives up to its name.

Also, I don't think...

Wish there was options available for USDM bumpers

Also, I was not able to find those Zero Fighter 555 spoilers on their site. Would probably be costly to get any of this stuff shipped over here.

Cylinder head for the VW is finished, block should be finished up soon (lightened, blueprinted, balanced). Once it's in my hand I still need to assemble the engine and order up a clutch kit and get...

^Doing gods work. I hope it's not too difficult.

The front lips have pretty much disappeared for the USDM bumpers. Sucks, as I was kind of waiting until my Fit is out of warranty before I start...

Shouldn't have a problem in NY. Just to be safe, you can run an oxygen sensor spacer. I've used these with test pipes (no cat at all) and never had an issue on any of my cars in the last 10 years.

Both 5th and 6th are overdrive gears. This is how it's been in most 6 speed cars I've had.
4th is actually slightly overdriven on the Fit as well, but is very close to the usual 1:1 ratio.

The intake looks like it draws air from the rear of the engine bay, as opposed to an actual cold air intake. Paired with an axle-back exhaust, power gains will be minimal, but it will probably sound...

Right center console cup holder. Keeps it at the perfect angle so I can see the whole screen when using the maps app for directions. View can be obstructed by the shifter in some gears though.

2nd gear engagement just always feels weird. City driving with the AC on isn't ideal either.

Thats disappointing. On some of my older cars I was able to swap out their rubber shifter bushings for solid aluminum pieces and they made a huge difference. And they were only like, $20 too

a few questions for you. Are the shifter bushings worth it alone? Does the u62 mount still provide enough stiffness for its intended purpose?

and lastly, I have heard that ktuner might not work...

Those wide fenders + flares. Wonder how they look without the flares?

Awesome stuff. USDM GK5s really need more aftermarket support.

This way makes sense on more race-oriented cars that live at high revs, as the fast revolutions of the engine will force the positive crank pressure out with ease. It also smells, and the filter...

So if I order the Ktuner for my 2017, what do I have to do to make it work? How does one go about uploading data from their ECU for them?



Also, does it raise rev limit at all too?

I go by the oil life meter display on the gauge cluster. Got down to 20% at the first oil change, 10% for the 2nd, which happened at 11,500 miles.



I do drive fairly rev happy though

This thread doesn't fail to deliver. Great to see you with all these aftermarket parts, which seem to be lacking for the GK.
