Hey guys,
I have a 2020 2.0t Accord 10AT with the following upgrades as of right now:
  • Mishimoto Cold Air Intake
  • PRL Flex Fuel Kit
  • KTuner v1.2
  • Phearable Stage 4 Tune
I feel like I’ve done something wrong cause I’m getting good power but not as much as I thought I would with those upgrades.
personally my butt dyno is claiming still under 300hp but idk:/

But my question is how much of a performance boost do you think I could get by getting a catted down pipe installed (hp wise)? And which model would y’all recommend?
Also what are some things y’all would suggest I look out for while installing a down pipe?
Thanks!

If you are running the Stage 4 are you operating with the flex-fuel module that PRL offers and an ethanol/fuel mix of some sort?

PRL and RV6 are pretty good quality downpipes to go with. A Civic Type R Turbo upgrade is another next step you may want to consider.

Don't go based on the Butt Dyno. Factory tune has the tendency to give you a boost that pushes you back and then dies off in higher RPMs. The aftermarket tunes are more linear, so you get a slightly less push but throughout the RPM range. This can make it seem the car is lacking power when in reality you've gained it. A dyno or quarter-mile would put your mind at ease.

I doubt you're under 300 on that set up. You should pretty easily see double digit gains on both HP and TQ out of a downpipe with that you're already got. Just beware of breaking studs while taking the downpipe off, thats a fairly common issue when removing exhaust pieces on just about anything.

Spray bolts with pb blaster and wait for about 30min before trying to remove the bolts. May require more than one application. Still need to be careful.

I'm going to reply to this just so it's up here twice for anyone who sees this and wants to replace exhaust parts lol
Yes i shall reinforce that PB BLASTER, is great stuff. Also good for any type of rusted bolt, as i see a recent post update on the broken wheel stud thread. Spray it on exhaust bolts let it sit, then spray again before starting work. If you want some fun get a styrofoam cup and spray some on watch it disintegrate it.
