It trick the computer into thinking your engine temp is 165°F so the computer does not allow the VCM to activate.

What does it do tho? Less tear on the engine I would assume
When all 6 cylinders a firing 100%, it makes for a cleaner engine, valves, injectors, spark plugs, EGR valve and exhaust system.

But ever so slightly worse fuel economy...

Most of us see no difference around town and maybe 1MPG drop on the highway for fuel efficiency. To me a worthy tradeoff to know my engine is cleaner and I have all 6 cylinders at my disposal whenever requested.

Are you:
Planning to tackle the Rubicon Trail?
Trying to make the Pilot look like a monster truck?
Turn it into a dune buggy?
Nah none of that lol. Maybe more like simple sleek thats all. Mostly camping since I do that a lot. Planning to add some wheels, roof rails and a rhino rack canopy thats all. Just needed suggestion on the wheel size and how I should do it. Any info would not hurt thats how I look at it.

IMO, skip the new wheels and change only the tires if you're going off pavement on a regular basis.
