"Cranky American" - this is how most drivers dubbed the foreign car "Honda Pilot". The developers did their best by releasing a powerful, spacious crossover with a huge number of worthy qualities to the international market. Motorists especially like the "Pilot" of the second generation. But with the reliability of the world giant, everything turned out to be not so rosy. Therefore, tuning "Honda Pilot" remains relevant throughout the life of the model.
Reasons for tuning
One of the most common reasons for tuning a Honda Pilot is the weakness of the paintwork. It becomes unusable pretty soon, "pleasing" with scratches and scuffs. How is the problem fixed? You can resort to pasting with a film coating. This will protect the car from the influence of the external environment.
Not everyone liked the design. Some even compare the car with a “suitcase of Russian open spaces” and successfully order Honda Pilot tuning, making the car interesting and stylish. The clear intention of every motorist is also to improve dynamic performance. There is something in the carwork for specialists in a tuning studio.
Individual character is the main desire of motorists who intend to tune the Honda Pilot and save on fuel. External changes will not only add decorative touches, but will also help the “swallow” soar through the air like a bird. External modernization gives the driver confidence, highlighting him from the usual traffic flow. What can be done?
- A stainless steel body kit with anti-corrosion properties will look great. It may be an Italian-made material. The polished surface does not lose its gloss for many years. It will act as a "charm" for the front of the bumper from stones, scratches.
- The best protection in the event of an accident is provided by the "kenguryatnik" installed during the tuning of the "Honda Pilot" and extending beyond the car. The product is made of curved tube and protects the center of the body.
How to make the cabin more comfortable
Methods for adjusting interior design:
- By contacting a tuning studio, you can order tuning of the Honda Pilot salon, turning a premium-class car into a Lux category unit. Tailoring the interior of genuine leather will make the interior "breathable", pleasant to the touch. Properly carried out work on close-fitting seats will create comfort during a trip over long distances. The skin is not afraid of moisture, does not lose color, wear-resistant.
- Alcantara upholstery, which can be seen in the photo of tuning "HondaPilot" in many printed publications on auto topics, will cost an order of magnitude cheaper, will look no worse than natural material. "Suede" can be washed with any detergent.
Honda Pilot lighting
Drivers are often not satisfied with factory lights. Honda Pilot headlight tuning becomes appropriate, which involves the installation of Hella bi-xenon lenses. The main advantage of such lights is that the motorist has the ability to instantly switch the light from near to far. This is the most economical option that does not create additional loads on car electronics. The regulation of the intensity of the light flux is carried out thanks to the equipment of a special metal curtain moved by a magnet. Lighting complies with GOST standards.
How to add power
Before a simple driver does not have the task of turning a car into a racing car, but adding dynamic performance is a very appropriate desire. Chip tuning "Honda Pilot", ordered in professional centers, helps to achieve good results. The "mission" of the engineers is simple: to flash the ECU. The work involves the analysis of the electronic engine control unit. This process is not easy, you should know the subtleties, so it is better to give the car into the hands of professionals. This applies in particular to vehicles manufactured in 2012 with a Keihin ECU. This model has many significant distinguishing features from other Honda models.
A few hours later qualifiedservice workers, you can enjoy an excellent result: a sharp start from low revs, powerful and even traction, a good sense of confidence when overtaking and the unlocked potential of motor power. Management becomes a real pleasure. The actions of mechanics also have a positive effect on fuel consumption, leading it to lower parameters than it was in the pre-tuning version. What are car owners complaining about?
Tricks to improve noise isolation
Often in the workshops you can hear the complaints of the owners of a foreign car about the hollow doors, ringing, poor-quality sound of standard acoustics. To eliminate this effect, the roof and doors are soundproofed. The use of STP material gives good results.
The thin steel sheet used by the automaker to produce the roof of the car provides a constant rumble inside. It is unpleasant to listen to it during the trip, during a long trip it causes physical discomfort. Soundproofing can be carried out even if there is a hatch in the roof. As the first layer, experts use STP Aero material. Initially, it was successfully used in the aircraft industry. The insulation is lightweight and can cover up to 75% of the crossover surface. After that, the upper part of the cabin is assembled and the soundproofing process continues.
To eliminate the effect of door resonation, the standard padding polyester is removed and replaced by STP "Aero". You will hear less street noise.
Whatever the transformations, the best solutions in these matters are owned by professionals,able to quickly and reliably provide the result expected by the car owner.
