    ^ Aloha. I only know the length from the arc of the fender to ground, but it's currently sitting 64cm front & 65cm rear. I forget the factory length of those, but if you know it, you can do the math to figure out the drop in mm. Basically, I have 1 finger gap in the front & 1.25 finger gap in the rear as of now.

    Btw, all of my pics of the car with blacked out headlight housings have 1 finger gap all around; Currently the rear height is slightly taller than the front right now.

    What are your front and rear spring rate in kg with your teins ? Can you describe how it ride and compare vs stock ?

    Did you tried any other spring rate setup ?

    Btw any reason you height up the back of the car ? Just for style and having a raked style or more for practical reason (ie rubbing ) ?

    I forgot the rates but Tein's web site should give you the exact #. It's pretty much like stock at the softest setting. It can also be very rough but fun driving around corners at the stiffest setting.

    Wanted to get more ground clearance from my mufflers & avoid the boat-look remedy, that's all.

    Notes kept from fellow 6GA members’ wisdoms:

    "Manifold part# 17160-RK2-A00 from Acura
    Manifold cover part # 17116-R70-A00 from Honda
    P2R adapter part# P383B= (Black), P383R= (Red), P383= (Silver)
    P2R gasket part# P141
    P2R gasket part# P149
    That is all the part #'s for the parts that you will need to make the 09 TL awd manifold to work.
    You will need qty of 9 bolts size 8mmx65mm with 1.25 pitch.
    For the manifold gasket i can't find the part number but just call them. They have awesome customer service.”


    “Anyhoo. ... happy to hear that you're going the j37 route. Everything works ok except the imrc ... problem is that the j32a2 IMRC is spring retained ... meaning the j32a2 ECU only sends the open signal ... once the open signal stops being sent by the j32a2 ecu, the j32a2 IM spring closes. The j37 IM IMRC requires both an ON and OFF signal to open and close ... respectively. Thus we left the butterfly valves open all the time and did not wire in the IMRC signal. You might lose a bit of torque low in the RPM ... but you gain a bit in the higher RPM band.”


    “No real issues from running that (J37 IM). Basically just have to block off one port”.

    “You’d have to either put in an entire harness and re wire it to your accord cluster and hvac, or just cut one plug off and re wire into your existing dash harness in your accord now.”
