New here... Just checking in

Hello Fellow Q owners,


Im Rob From the Orlando area.

Not new to boards or cars. Been modding/building cars for decades. On the mod team for Honda-Tech.com (670K members and about 30 Mods and Admins) and retired from mod status on other boards.

Since my last car was rear ended by a teenage girl texting.. I picked up a 17 Q60 3.0t AWD for a decent price.
2014 Camry SE

As this car wont be a huge project car, There will be subtle mods on the list


-Swap diverter to a real BOV, Prob an HKS, TurboSmart or Tial
-Keeping the 19" size, Prob staggering 9.5" with a +30 front and either a +22 or +15 rear.
-Prob Work Emotion style (since I havent seen any of that type on any Q60 yet)
-Buddy will tune it for free, just pay license fee (he just Tunes a Red S and made 430WHP with no mods)
- Possibly a Cat Back



Ill be posting around any knowledge or helpful info Ive retained over the years..And asking questions

Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your last car (idiots texting and using their phones behind the wheel is a big pet peeve of mine) but good to have you on board.

Hey thx for the info..

Im guessing AMS has kits for the Q or is it a universal with cut to fit piping/couplers, etc?


I will say, This is a DIY mod I did back when my civic was boosted and worked great..


Use one of those cheap windshield sun shades, cut it in strips and wrap the intake or charge piping that might be prone to heat soak.

In the dyno, the IAT's were about 2-3* over ambient. (I also had thermal gaskets being used on intake manifold, TB, and coolant tube to TB removed as i live in florida and dont need it to warm up)




Now, its not the prettiest look, but sure beats that crappy gold tape Mishimoto sells!


Here was my Civic, pretty clean.

I found a guy local for the AMS heat exchanger in the mid 400s... beats brand new for 800. Hes returning the car and i got lucky!

Im in new york so its still cold out here but come May its going to be needed.
