I think the USDM muffler is still different than the JDM/EDM muffler. You can see the muffler tip still extends farther out.

Does it just look like the caliper bracket needs to be updated for the gen 2 cars? Should be relatively easy to do? Would you just sell the bracket only?

Short term being inactive means itís in open loop during WOT, correct?

If thatís the case, it doesnít look like you can add a bit of e85 to boost the octane without affecting AFR too much.

It's possible there's a little bit of knock. Hard to know without seeing the knock sensor data.

Would like to know if this was on 91 or 93.

Second gen engine tuning

Wanted to start a discussion about second gen tuning. As of this writing, there aren't engine tuning options. Do we know if EcuTek has plans to provide a tuning solution for these cars?

If actually port installed, I doubt the dealer can put in a request to skip the installation of the duckbill. Generally, if it's not a checkbox item, it's not something they can do.

interesting the US spec gets the optional GR duckbill from factory. i'm sure a lot of duckbill owners will want a non-duckbill trunk. i prefer the cleaner non-duckbill trunk.
