      Big sound difference...especially above 3000rpm. it doesn't quite have that amplified VTEC sound in the upper rpm range that you are accustomed to with your TL.

      Motor itself is probably going to be fine. The 2.5 is a very stout motor. I would expect the usual stuff at that mileage for any vehicle...CV boots, suspension work, etc. If it hasn't bee done...

      Working in two lunch break rides during the week on the CX to get some more saddle time. Only 2ish miles of this is on dirt, but better than nothing I suppose:

      Only reason I said retorque to spec is I had the exact same thing on mine 10k or so after I replaced the suspension. Despite being torqued to spec at install they managed to loosen up a little...
