    Not meaning to be a critic. I wouldn't go anywhere near that car with that flimsy little jack holding it. In almost 15 years of wrenching, I've seen two jackstands, a ramp, and a 2 1/2 ton hydraulic jack fail. That thing will drop the car if you fart loudly.

    So what your saying is you wouldn't change a flat tire on the highway with the supplied emergency jack?

    I've used the emergency jack for little projects like this. I've never (knock on wood) had any issues, but I've never had to exert lots of energy on the car to get done what needed to be done. I think as long as you take the required precautions, chock the rear wheels, apply the e-brake, break the wheel lugs loose while the car is on the ground, and don't lean on or sit in the vehicle, while its on the jack, you should be safe. But this depends on what kind of work you are doing as well. I wouldn't do an up-pipe install or anything that involved with just the emergency jack.

    The emergency jack is for just that....emergencies.

    Working in a wheelwell like that is insane. You'd be surprised how easily a scissor jack collapses. Hey, it's your life, and your appendages.

    If you change a tire properly, there is no reason that you should ever have any part of your body under anything. You don't need to go under the car, and you grip the tire by the sides not the bottom. The jack could fail and you won't get hurt.

    Very well done write up. Thank you for the effort.

    Next time buy these. For $25 there is no reason not to use them.

    just dont put your hands on top of the wheel when your trying to put it on. i know a guy who was changing a tire and had his hand on top of the tire and the car fell off the jack and it pinched his fingers between the tire and fender....OUCH

    After you take the wheel off, if you don't have a jackstand, just put the wheel halfway under the side of the car . Better a damaged wheel than a damaged self.

    So, is this silencer thing just a noise muffling thing?

    Does the air flow just go into the "ram air", around the fender hole through the silencer, wrapping back into the entrance of the intake cone?

    Just did this and WOW was it simple. If this is any indication of the difficulty working on these cars I'm in for a nice ride. Every time I did ANYTHING on the Honda it was a nightmare.

    this was the first thing i did to my 06. i installed a panel filter then did this, except its not necessary to take the tire off the car. I did however find that placing the jack under the car to just lift it up a little bit or in some cases just park it over a curb so you have a lil more clearence to the clips. i did buy the GP moto Silencer delete but realized that the sound without it was more like that BOV sound that most turbo owners like.

    I didn't have to take my wheel off either. Hardest part was either trying to remember which clips went where or convincing the silencer that it wanted to let go of its previous home.

    i usually do it the harder way, but too each their own...it worked out pretty well and with the tire off i had no trouble coaxing out the silencer as it allowed for much more room.
