Exactly this. I was in a local Honda dealer a couple of years ago and saw the Sport Touring in the showroom and immediately knew that I wanted it. If I saw the 11th gen, my response would have definitely been "meh".
I've been running different variations on relatively aggressive tunes for about a year and a half now with no issues. About four months ago, got the PRL CAI w/ Race MAF tuned w/ Race MAF setting and continue to have no issues.
