Thanks for the tip. I wondered if the stick oil could have such an affect. I'll stick to other filter options in that case.Excellent looking CRV! I've always liked your model in white.
Just a heads up on the K&N filter. The guys who did my engine swap run a Honda performance shop. They see a lot of street guys coming in with their K&N or other brands of washable, oiled filters. The problem is with these type of filters is that very small amounts of oil atomize into your engine's air supply. Effectively coating things like MAF/MAP and other intake side sensors, in an film of oil, which then attracts other small particles to the "coat my sensors" party. For those people who actually use and refresh the same filter for 100,000s of KM/miles, their intake manifold/throttle body/valves get all gummed up pretty bad.
To prevent this problem, they always use foam disposable filters from reputable companies such as K&N, AEM, PRM, ect. It's the biggest breakaway from paper element filters.
For the most part no. I slightly miss the extra cargo space and 3rd row seat (great for isolating kid conflicts lol), and slightly miss the extra power, but both of those are negated by the much better fuel economy and smaller gas tank, and for a much sleeker looking rideMike, do you miss the Pilot? I don't really miss my Ridgeline!
I prefer paying $60 at the pump instead of of $100 at every fill up! That's a lot....
You don't need AWD/4WD for A/T tires You can still benefit from their narlyness and added traction on/off road and in snow, mud etc.So Mike I found the pics I asked for in your other thread. You have a great looking V. I like what you've done with it. I'm wishing mine was 4WD, so I could put some aggressive tires on it. Keep up the good work!
That's very true. Since I'm transferring to VA in 9 days I might actually need tires like that for the winter. I guess this winter will be my deciding factor.You don't need AWD/4WD for A/T tires You can still benefit from their narlyness and added traction on/off road and in snow, mud etc.
Thanks Wolf! I took that pic from 50+ feet away using a longer zoom to get a better perspective and still fill the frame. I need to get another shot with my roof-rack/cross-bars mounted. If it wasn't storming outside, I'd do it right now lol!I like this shot in the garage a lot. Shows off nicely the mods you've done. The V is looking great.
