Hello All,

Just a quick new member intro. I bought my 2020 N-line in March and I've actually been wanting to join the forum since then, but the old website kept giving me errors when I tried to sign up or send a message to the site admins! Anyhow, I'm very glad to be able to join up, finally.

My car is a manual (one of the main things I was looking for in a new car) and I'm loving it! My last car was a civic coupe with a manual and it was just soooooooooo slow, I couldn't take it anymore.

I plan on doing some autocross with the car (it will be my first organized, ahem, racing experience), and I also plan to do some light mods to the car including exhaust and intake (if you have any recommendations please let me know). So far the only thing I've changed on the car are the tires and wheels (Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+, and Enkei EKM3).

Feel free to reach out if you want to chat!

Nice ride! I Definitely dig the wheels!

I've just recently started doing autocross with this car and a few things I can recommend from my experience so far:
  • Tires make a world of difference, I'd go with 300TW or less.
  • Rear sway bar
  • Intercooler (our intercooler tends to get heat soaked very quickly)

I would also get one of those bluetooth OBDII readers to monitor coolant and air intake temos. I ran into some issues with coolant temps rising above a level I was comfortable with. The temp gauge on these cars are useless. My coolant got over 30 deg C above normal operating temp with the needle on the gauge being in the 'normal' zone.

I would keep the power levels stock for now as you get used to the car. Plenty of time to shave off just in driver skill.

Hey JP,

Thanks!

I appreciate the suggestions. Yeah, I read about the intercooler being an important mod for autocross elsewhere. Any recommendations for a replacement (and a ballpark cost)?

Power mods aren't for autocross times necessarily, more for fun factor :)

I think there's a few manufactures making them. SXTH is always a great go to for aftermarket parts but it can get a bit pricey for us Canadians. N75 motorsports is great to. You'll likely be looking around $1000 for this upgrade. Its still on my future wish list.
Also forgot to mention upgraded torque arm or torque arm bushing. Helps with wheel hop
