Whats going on 10th gen community. I recently purchase a ton of little add on here and there and will be creating a thread for those that plan on doing something similar in the near future.
Before I start, I would like to express that before just throwing parts at your machines, please do a ton of research and explore ALL of your options before purchasing. The add on's I purchase were based off of the future plans for the vehicle.
If you have any questions or want information, just ask and I'll try to provide any details about install steps or product info.

First up...
-Genuine Type R emblems. Front and rear.
Purchase from Corsport
$129.98 plus shipping and handling. Corsport claims these to be genuine emblems. They look awesome and are definitely a nice touch up to the factory emblems
-Black out upper grill w/ headlamp trim

Keeping the Type R theme going...
-OEM Type R engine cover. The earth dreams one isn't awful. Its just a lot of black in one space so the red is a nice change of pace for the engine bay. I will say, if anyone else does this, try to source different engine cover bolts/studs. They stick up quite a bit after removing the old one along with the coil pack cover under the original engine cover. You'll also find the the driver side rear bolt is not long enough to reach the threads in the valve cover. Ill have to get back to that. If anyone knows where to get these aftermarket, please comment. 馃檹馃徎

-DC Sport short ram intake system
I have to say, this was a little easier to install than I thought it would be. Came with new hardware, piping, housing, sleeve. The only thing you'll have to transfer over, is a rubber grommet from the original air filter housing (see pictures). The rest of it is self explanatory. Definitely a throttle response different. Kind of took away some of the delay there. Definitely noisy lol

I'll be adding some other items over the next few weeks as they come in. Coilovers, rear camber arms, wheels, tires, window visors, lip kit, fog tint, exhaust system, etc. Everything is ordered, just waiting for a few things to show up. Cheers everyone. Ill keep adding as they come.

Take a look at these two threads/posts....

The Gentlemen's Type R (Build Thread)

How to Install the CTR Engine Cover

They both discuss different bolts needed for this install providing part numbers.

BTW... nice looking additions!!!

Thanks for the links! I've seen the gentleman type r thread. I'm pretty sure he just stops and bought an Audi. But I haven't seen then other one. I'll check it out man 馃憤馃徎

3 Engine Cover Bolts P/N 90014-R40-A00

You can order them straight from Honda.

With the Open Air Element intakes like the K&N Typhoon, AEM and DC just be prepared for higher IAT's. Heat soak and decreased performance will happen also but you get the cool turbo sound :)
The Factory Airbox is better than these for this application if your after performance.

The PRL HVI and Takeda intakes are better aftermarket intakes for this platform for performance since they have a closed element. Personally I love my PRL HVI.

You're welcome. The gentleman type r thread owner did sell his car and got an Audi but that link provides the P/N's and install details (as does the second link I provided).

PRL is super nice. I did notice when installing the DC intake that the factory ram does not mount back on the car, it got me thinking (I do a lot of custom work for customers) to create a plexiglass top for the aftermarket housing and modify the factory ram. This would make it sealed and direct forced air as a factory application. I dont know if anyone else has done that. Ill have to do some digging. Just trying to think outside the box a little along the way with the build.

Try to retain the factory snorkel, it helps draw cold air from the outside. I used to have the K&N Typhoon. It sounded awesome but I did notice heat soak especially in the Florida summers. Here is my old set up.

I definitely will. It will need some modification to make it fit with the DC setup. I have another one ordered in case I put it back to factory.

Next up on the list are JDM "Mugen style" window visors. Previously have AVS in-channels that absolutely did not work out. Then switched to AVS regular visors. They held up just fine but left a big gap between where the front and rear visors met. So i nabbed these because theyre full length and do not leave a gap. I dont know how i feel about them just yet, as im not super impressed with the lack of 3m tape that they came with. Time will tell 馃し馃徎鈥嶁檪锔

I do like the style that these give off. If the 3m tape doesnt hold up, ill be reinstalling with my own 3m tape (wondering if i should have just done that from the start 馃)

Nice addition. (y)

I have the OEM window visors on my car and love the look, only drawback I have found is in the functionality of them. Because of the way the windows go down we are limited into how far down we can put them without having to worry about rain coming in the car (especially/specifically if you want to have the window cracked while driving in the rain).

Red fog lamp tint. Purchased off Rvinyl.com for $15 shipped I purchase this because it came with enough to double layer both lamps. Ive seen photos of this tint with one layer and it wasnt a deep enough red for me. Double layers did the trick 馃憣馃徎

Please excuse the bug mess. Its hard to keep your car white vehicle clean when you live in a rural area. (I did clean the s*** out of the foglamps prior to installation)

Sorry for not posting any updates recently. Had some Hvac/House trouble that needed my attention.
Driving to work last week and a rock fell off a loading truck and smacked my black overlay for the upper grill. So I decided to just upgrade to the sport upper grill with the extensions. I opted in for chrome accent because I will be keeping some chrome on the car. I really like the design of these as opposed to the factory upper grill.
After doing a ton of research, I could find anything regarding the removal of the emblem trim piece on these (and no one had any backside pictures of them). You will need to either remove your emblem and transfer it over or buy a new one. You cannot take the emblem support behind the upper grill off on the oem one, and transfer it to the sport grill. The emblem area is built into it.
