  1. Updated Type R worth waiting for? Release date soon?

    Rumored update is: 480 12V batteries linked together in series for a 5,750 volt electric motor generating 120,000 hp through a heavy duty CVT, but can only go 1/4 mile between charges. The car will weight 8,258 lbs but will have a stronger front bumper. Back seat will now be red. No more shock...
  2. Paint Peeling on Rear Bumper

    Looks like something sort of aggravated it. :(
  3. Anyone Done Horns Yet?

    Here is the thread I wanted! I would have been happy with the ITS horns, they sound good and pretty loud but the Honda cheaped out with the CTR horns. They sound like a motorcycle horn. Not the best thing to penetrate through glass, steel and a loud stereo. I put some old AC/Delco horns on...
  4. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    Running naked is fun unless you get caught, but this is a license plate topic. :doh: So my suggestion is drag the plate down the road for a while to put some nice scrapes in the face of it and then velcro it out of sight right under the front of the car. When the cops pull you over, get out...
  5. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    Today I upgraded the horns to some 40 year old AC-Delcos. I figure they will last another 40 years and that's good enough for me. Now whenever I beep the horn, people will be looking for something other than a Honda in their mirror. I made a quick video about it>
  6. DIY exhaust upgrade ...

    Thanks, Yeah that was the hard part, I have a temporary hanger until I can get some rods welded to the muffler to use the factory rubber mounts. But it's pretty light, so no problem overall. So that is the down side. If you aren't a welder or have access to one, an aftermarket is more plug...
  7. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    You should remove that first resonator while you have it up like that. :dunno:
  8. Anyone own both a FL5 and DE5

    I drove both but only own one... the FL5. The ITS I drove only had 7 miles on it and we went for about a 10 mile loop. The dealer kept telling me to put my foot into it, so I did. It was quick but so tight I was hoping I wouldn't blow it up. The tight as a drum Acura comparison to the...
  9. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    Thanks! Those are incredible! I might have to do a white or a boost blue.... I mean, why not something different from what's already in the garage! :headbang:
  10. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    Thanks, a red or white would be fine too. I'll check them out. :thumbsup:
  11. What did you do to or with your FL5 today ?

    They were similar for those 4 or 5 years. 70 had a 454 cu in / 450 horsepower option but by 75, max power was a 350 with 165hp. :( [Ok we take you back to your normally scheduled thread now]. Today I also checked my oil and it it still topped off!
  12. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    That is some excellent detail. I want one!!! :beer: I wonder if they make em in black?
  13. What did you do to or with your FL5 today ?

    Nice place to hang out, the new and the old. That's a 68.
  14. What did you do to or with your FL5 today ?

    I installed a PRL lite intake kit today. It came with a better K&N style oiled filter and smooth silicone soft intake pipes instead of the corrugated sewer pipes that Honda uses. It might have smoother flow now and breath slightly better ... who knows? :dunno:
  15. What did you do to your FL5 today?

    What scale size is that? .... I thought it was the real thing at first! o_O I think I'd remove both those resonators while you have it standing up like that.
  16. MY 2025 - Facelift?

    If Honda really wanted to move these cars, they could deny dealers any future allocation if they put ridiculous sur charges in the name of making huge profits. But, maybe they don't care what the dealers do. :dunno:
  17. MY 2025 - Facelift?

    I wonder what the red X means? I guess the cars that have sold? but if that's the case, the car I bought isn't shown.
  18. Has the 2nd gear grind happened to your FL5 yet?

    1500 miles here and no grinding. I'm pretty easy on it overall but will take it to the drags later in the year and if it grinds, that will be the time. :(
  19. 2022 VW Golf R vs 2022 Honda Type R

    I read (on a Vdub forum) the DSG shifts in 8 mS, where as a fast manual shift is typically around 500 mS. If that's true, and it sounds reasonable, in a drag race, shifting from 1st to 4th, a 6 speed manual gives up close to 1.26 seconds in dead acceleration time to the DSG, not to mention...
