    Well you guys know a dog smoked the front of my car about a month ago.Its almost done I got all the parts in this week and started wed. night.So far I took out and installed the new radiator support.Not just the top bar but the bottom and the sides as a complete unit.Lazer aligned it and it perfect.Test fitted the new lights ,bumper and IC and everything is perefect.My new intercooler is a Spearco 30x10x3,its freakin huge and I love it.I also put some new wheels and tires on.I got some black rota slips in 16" and some extended studs and lugs.Looks preety good.Cant wait to be back on the road.Next week I have an opoinment at a place called Turbo Tune in Greensboro NC.There they will be installing Hondata s200 w/boost also I went with there launch control and wide open shift option.Ive been taking alot of pics and will post them as soon as I get a chance.

    a few locals swear by the 3 step rev limiter.. they use a line lock on there tranny and just hold their foot down the entire run... full throttle shift etc... .503 lights on the regular ..

    i think its weird tho!! lol

    the 3 step is NOT the launch control.

    i always thought that "full throttle shift" and "launch control" was all a part of the 3-stage rev limiter. how is it different?

    That's what I thought too.

    Three stage rev limiter:

    1 = launch rev limit
    2 = shift rev limit
    3 = redline limit

    That's it. If you're talking about launch control as in traction control, I don't think the Hondata system has it.
