does the rear engine torque mount actually help? thinking about doing it, same with the strut tower

Nice setup! What do you think of your Mishimoto CAI? I just recently installed one as well. Very happy with the sound, and looks. Although, I am unimpressed with the performance and actually starting to wonder if it has worse performance than the stock intake. Did you experience anything similar to this?

Definitely feels like I'm more planted now with the tower bar and the torque mounts, no noticeable body roll/lean anymore. I'm sure some tranny mounts would stiffen the chassis more, but I can't say if it'd be worth it, don't go thru many twisties around here, so I think it would be diminishing returns to do anymore.

Welcome aboard... nice mods you've done to your car. (y)
Thanks!

I've also noticed that it doesn't feel as darty as before, seems like it isn't making the same tight boost, my guess is since the intake is more open (less restrictive) than the OEM airbox, the extra air might be getting purged due to the purge valve and we're losing the extra boost PSI too quickly before we can feel the thrust, but I also need to do the bypass for the purge valve to see if that helps the situation which I'm pretty sure it will. Should be doing it this weekend or next.Will be posting back with my findings afterward.

Nice, I would love to hear the results you have with the bypass valve.

This only should be done if your noticing boost loss like Dan was. I wouldn't be bypassing anything unless necessary. A few guys have noticed issues with the Catch cans though, DRob will tell you to lose the catch can.

As for the intake the PRL HVI or stock is your best bet for performance. All of the fastest Accord run those boxes.

I gotcha! I purchased the Mishimoto intake for a few reasons. Personally, I thought the Mishimoto was the best looking, also some extra sound and a small bump in performance would be nice. I did not expect to lose throttle responsiveness. I am gonna look into the bypass method and see if I notice a difference or not with the bypass. If not I will undo the bypass method and possibly put the stock box back on. We'll see what happens.

I get it. I ran the K&N Typhoon first and the big issue was heat soak. I did love the sound though. It will be less with the Mishimoto but its still more prone to heat soak than a closed element.

Well, I am losing boost tho... So it seems worthwhile to do it. Also why do people not recommend Catch Cans on the Accord 2.0s? Seems to me to make sense on anything with a turbocharger or supercharger...

No love for Takeda? that's the one I wish I got... But I guess I'm keeping the Mishi

Takeda has known issues with the MAF location. Makes 0 improvements. The 2.0T from Honda does an excellent job of burning off the extra oil/fuel that a catch can is not needed. It can cause issues by adding something that really isn’t necessary. We’ve spoken about catch cans quite a bit on here. Better off buying a flex fuel kit or water meth kit. PRL Charge pipes also are a better investment for your $$$.

Quote from DRob on Catch Cans.
“The factory PCV system is very well designed, and adding an external catch can inline on the system does nothing more than add more volume to condense vapors to. The vast majority of what people pour out of those cans is water.”

I appreciate the wisdom, I guess I'll ditch the catch can and that's good to know about the takeda, I almost went with it and kinda had FOMO about it.
