Pilot has been taken off-line and parked in the garage for a summer build project. There will be some general repairs and some minor modifications to make it more trail worthy. It won't be a fast build but the thread will be updated regularly. Most of the parts have arrived but the exhaust system may become an issue as the OEM front pipe has been backordered or discontinued.
Maintenance items:
**radiator
**LCA+tie rod
**exhaust system

Modifications:
**trans cooler
**lift kit
**KYB
**S-Tech
**17” wheel
**AT

This little tool is awesome.
What is the function of this tool?
And I can’t believe that ground wire corrosion.
This looks like it will be a fun build project.

Took an hour to drill through a rusted broken bolt but the Milwaukee Magnum electric drill did it with some expendable HF drill bits. Next the CAT needed the buggered threads
“cleaned” up with a Lisle thread chaser 👌

How much was the Bosal exhaust system?

Price has dropped to $320ish without the CAT and before the RA discount which is less than what the half-assed weld job Meineke wanted. IMO quality is less than OEM but it’s definitely a diy project this time and next time.

The NTK O2 sensor was a direct fit to replace my downstream O2 sensor that broke upon removal. Exact-fit with no CEL

Good to know. Was it an easy install? Once you chased the threads?
Installation was fairly ez under the Pilot. Just needed a long one-handed reach to disengage the connector and a bit harder to connect one-handed. Glad the wires were not routed under the front passenger seat.
