  1. 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. 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)

  6. 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. 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...
