      Are you going to replace the intake manifold as well? If so, would you be willing to post how much that costs? I think I might replace mine as there isn't much left to replace on my car.

      Can you be more specific about exactly what issues you had that were fixed by a new intake manifold?

      That's right. From the dealer's point of view, if there is no code, there is nothing wrong. As discovered in one of the threads I posted above, a few people logged their cars and found the...

      I haven't posted on this thread in a while because I mostly just gave up. Reading through the last 6 months of posts, I think different people have different problems, even though the symptoms are...

      For what it's worth, I recently found myself next to a V6 Accord Coup going up a freeway ramp. Clearly, we both had the same idea in mind; that is, to floor it and get ahead of the other before the...

      Hesitation fixed?

      Another three days and not a single hesitation. I am beginning to allow myself to think that maybe my hesitation is gone. Not to gloat, but it feels so good to pull smoothly through 2.5k rpms.

      Update

      So here's the latest:

      Many months ago, I replaced my OEM DV rev D with a new one and found it helped with the hesitation even though the old one looked fine. I then tried the Forge DV and found it...

      Thank you for this post. Interesting that your hesitation was fixed when that wasn't part of the original intent. They just got lucky? Did they ever find any evidence in their logging of the...

      Good question. Is it? It would be good to be able to unplug it when I take the car to the dealer.
