  1. Let's Get This Party Started

    Under The Hood / Performance
    So this is my baby. Her name is Ruby, and she's a 08' Element SC with 72,000 miles on her, and a 5A/T transmission. Always thought it was a 4 speed on the A/T but Honda says it's a 5. I have had plans for a while to upgrade the performance and such. I already installed Enkei EKM3...
  2. Biggest tires for stock and lift kit

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Does anyone know the biggest tires I can put on stock without any rubbing? I also will be installing a 2 inch lift kit in a week and wondering what the biggest tires i could put on it then? (I have a 2007 EX MT)
  3. Stereo options in 2014?

    Mobile Electronics
    I've searched the archives for a clear answer, but most of the stereo swaps (with the features we're seeking) are at least a few years old now, and more often than not, the user reviews on that big Brazilian website point to reliability issues. So. Our ideal system would be a double-DIM with...
  4. Battery upgrade

    Problems & Issues

  5. Radios compatible with steering wheel controls

    Mobile Electronics
    I'm considering upgrading my radio, but I'm concerned about the possible issues of compatibility overall. First, I love my steering wheel controls, and I'm not sure how to find radios compatible with them. Also, I really want a unit that allows an external aux input, so the built in input could...
  6. Reducing tire aspect ratio for 225 tires on my 2004 Element

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Hi all, I have to change the tires on my beloved 2004 Honda Element EX Manual 4WD. I noticed that a new complete set of 225/60/16 Michelin Energy tires on the Boston CL, but I am uncertain as to the effect of reducing the tire aspect ratio from 65 to 60. Any info advice would be welcome. Thanks
  7. 8" sub in factory sub box... "Kinda"

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    So i just got my 2007 EX the other day with a stock bass but realized i was going to need more than the 6.5 woofer could provide. i didn't want to have 2 12''s loose in the back either because i like the stock looks and wanted to keep it that way. With this in mind i got to work on ideas on how...
