Very nice video and beautiful car. I bought my 2002 Type-S new but didn't do much aesthetically besides a paint job when the original paint went bad.

I notice that you said the engine is stock but fun to drive, especially over 6K RPM. I understand completely. I would hit red line daily just for the excitement of feeling the power. But that was before I got the Hondata ECU reflash.

If your ECU has stock OEM programming, you are really missing out on how much fun your car can be to drive. I only had a cold air intake on my Type-S when I sent my ECU to Hondata for the reflash. I chose the reflash that also extended the redline to 8500 RPM. With your intake and exhaust, the gains will be even better. After the reflash, I rarely hit redline on my engine because it had plenty of power throughout the RPM range. It was the best $600 I ever spent on the car and I wished that I gotten it sooner. Now, this reflash is only $300.

If you already have a reflash or a Kpro with a tune, you already know what a difference it makes.
