Any one know if products like that are in the works? Love to sneak a few more HP/TQ and some better sounds in the near future.

Thanks

Whole lotta nothing for the Passport.

The intakes by AEM and HPS may fit as they make intakes for the Ridgeline and/or Pilot.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on an HPS intake to see if it'll fit. It should be arriving soon (next day or two).

Exhausts, I found nothing. I even looked under to see if the system is multiple parts: headers/downpipe to the axle and then axle to the rear. As far as I can tell it's one long system from the headers/downpipe back to the rear. I do wonder if an Accord V6 exhaust would work. *shrug*

I could be wrong but I don't anticipate there being a high demand for an exhaust system for the HP so we may be stuck with cutting up the OEM system and adding, for example, a Magnaflow muffler.

I did some quick research online. The pilot/passport/Ridgeline and odyssey all share the same part number for the air intake system. So hopefully it works when you install it

Well, received the HPS intake and the instructions. They do not have them online, at least I couldn't find them. Interesting that you must completely remove the OEM breather and coolant hard line for the install.

I'm a computer noob but was able to get this picture from their instructions (created PDF).



AEM doesn't require this for their intake.

So I'm not sure about the HPS at this time.

I can confirm the AEM cold air intake made for Ridgelines/Pilots fits Passports perfectly. I had one on the ridgeline I traded for my Passport and swapped it over easily. Definitely feel it in the butt dyno, vtec sounds awesome, and the intake sounds even cooler on the passport due to the sportier oem exhaust. Gives it a nice growl at low rpms.

Also I suggest getting the hydrophobic sleeve for the filter on the AEM as these cars tend to get a lot of water under the hood.

Can you please explain more about this? I really know nothing about what the advantages / disadvantages are...

Thanks

I wish someone would actually do a before and after dyno instead of a butt one. Some intakes actually give less HP and torque vs stock airbox.

Why would someone go to all the trouble of dyno testing before and after for such a minor part? Come on now. AEM has loads of dyno charts on their site for every application.

guess because I am a scientist and if I'm going to spend that kind of money on a "minor part" I'd like to see the torque and HP graph before and after. And I've seen before and after data where a CAI actually made less HP and torque vs the stock airbox. The S2000 comes to mind.

its on their site, like I said. 13hp gain.

it doesn't say 13hp gain....it said "estimated" 13hp gains. that's not the same thing. I can estimate a lot of things and be off by 200%
The level of trolly entitlement emanating from your keyboard is astounding. Your armchair commentary is juvenile.

It says estimated because every car is different and many will test lower or higher depending on the car and conditions. They provide dyno charts for similar vehicles for reference.

Even if I went and dyno’d my own car, it could still test differently from yours. You’re a scientist, you should know that.

We’re talking about a $300 part on a $40000 vehicle, good for only 5% gains. So again, who cares?

There are very few Passports on the road and most are driven by people who have no glimmer of how performance mods work.

This isnt honda-tech with millions of civic owners testing every single part.

Rather than moaning about independent lab tests you should be thanking first adopters like 407guy and me for taking on the time and risk to verify these parts even fit our cars rather than moaning we didnt do a dyno test.

FYI there isnt an awd dyno within 500 miles of me and that’s generally the case unless youre on the coasts.

You’re a scientist...how about you put your money where your mouth is and test one yourself. That is, if you actually care about the mod or even own a passport.

wow.....just wow...your post is the definition of troll. $300 is $300 no matter the cost of the vehicle. My pic of my Passport is on another thread.

Grow up son. really. I'm sorry you didn't apparently get hugged enough at some point in your life that you have to go sideways the moment someone says something that honestly wouldn't have given me a glimmer of heartburn yet you get completely wrapped around the axle.

I've been modding cars for a long long time. I've been driving them on the road since I was in sixth grade.

and they make FWD Passports. I'd really like to know if it really works because some CAI don't for certain vehicles.

Risk? you took it off your other honda and intalled it.....what risk? you already owned the part.

Woe guys, take a step back, we are here to calmly discuss our Passports.

I can see Rutnicks' side, as a scientist looking for empirical data, but the person you need to be asking about HP boost data is the Manufacturer.

Swenpaylay is simple telling us about what he did to his Passport, which is what this forum is all about, we can ask him about the install, how he likes it and what if he feels a power difference, then if you don't want to buy one, fine, let it go.

I paid $1500 to cover my front end in plastic, which doesn't do a damn thing to the performance and I'm sure many think that is a colossal waste of money, but (so far) no one has challenged me on it...

Oh, and Happy Easter!

and there is literally a 21 page forum thread on the ridgeline forum asking about problems with idle after installing the intake.....people refuting the 13hp claimed gains from AEM, people saying the stock intake is essentially a CAI which it is and some saying their 0-60 times increased and fuel economy decreased after installing it.

wondering if anyone had done real world testing shouldn't be something you get so twisted over.
