i'm looking into getting an element, and like any good modifier would do, i'm seeking solutions prior to purchase.

i'll probably go with a custom intake/header/cat/exhaust from lht performance, but how the helk would i tune?

aem/apexi/greddy? any help would be greatly appreciated =)

regards,

vinny

That is a very clean TSX you have there...

The engine block for an Element is almost the same as your K-series TSX, except the TSX head has V-tec power that kicks in, so if you're already familiar with the engine you can do a lot to it like any other K-series.

Some after market parts for the Element specifically for the Element are Hondata engine management, K-sport suspension, Tein, ST sway bars, Eibach, Skunk, AEM,etc...

There are no bolt on Headers or Turbos yet so you'll have to custom fabricate one made for RSX or TSX models.

Definitely get he 4WD version, they are much better for mountain roads, and works very well! It acts like an LSD when your front tires spin out, the rear wheel drive will kick in automatically.:lol:

Check out the "Trading Post on the Forums", sometimes there are some nice Element deals for sale as well.

Good luck!

If you get an auto, you will not be able to use k pro.. Not only that, the MT makes the E a blast to drive.. I have done the AT to MT swap I wanted it so bad... Just something to think about coming from a tuner style car..
P.S. Nice TSX.. Want to get a white one to convert to euro R status..:cool:

i appreciate all the positive response and advice! selling for 2 reasons:

a) my family needs the money
b) need an economical suv to suit my new lifestyle change

i had no clue that hondata had kpro for the element ... i may just change my mind about the auto and go with a 5 spd. however, the main reason behind the auto would be for convenience so everyone could drive on long trips

THANKS EVERYONE FOR BEING SO HELPFUL

The MT drives real easy... Just like a car... I hear you on the switching off on long drives though.. But yeah, you should really go with k pro... I would have but the 07up will require me swapping gauge clusters, wiring and ecu. It has not been done before, and will be lots of fun(read PITA).
