I'm thinking of buying the Pilot but have some more research to do. Does the Pilot share the same motor and does it sit the same in the engine bay as the Odyssey and MDX? I've been also considering the Odyssey and MDX. I noticed on the Odyssey and MDX forum a couple members have custom performance mods. There is even a member on the Odyssey forum with nitros and a member on the MDX forum selling intakes. I ask because if I decide to go with the Pilot I may decide to tinker with it a bit. I currently drive a Honda Passport and it has a couple mods and my dealer either doesn't care or is oblivious to my aftermarket radiator, exaust, and intake. I bring my Passport in for oil changes and whatnot and the dealer never says a word about it, he is really cool.
