I put a K&N filter element in mine and get more gas mileage and horsepower. I average 18-20 city and 23-27 on average highway. Lifetime warranty too. I just replaced the element and did not get the cone.
Ok I'll go there for a minute. Why not? Keep in mind there are cross over performance parts from other Honda's that would give that extra ponies.. but I'm curious as to why would be not worth it ?
lets also not forget there are actual people out there that moded the hell out of the J series engine .. If I was going to sit down and play with the ECU /PCM I would delete the stupid eco that was on these trucks. Hell Honda did it with the baja series Pilots.
I would love to see someone actually take the TL parts and mod the engine to get those extra ponies , PCM tune the stupid thing like it's on crack and show the damn thing off .
