Hey ROC!

I’m new to this. just purchased a 20 Black edition and am really enjoying it so far. I was interested in making many “adventurous” upgrades in the future... on a budget of course. I am however interested in an intake and mountain bike tailgate pad at the moment. Any advice is much appreciated!

Welcome to the Ridgeline Owners Club, @jberg49! Why are you looking for an "intake"? The factory one is already capable of flowing the required amount of air into the engine.

Interested to see if I can squeeze any more mpg and hp out of her... do you think I will see any difference?

You won't see any improvement in fuel economy and any power gain will be detectable only by a dynomometer.
True, I thought it would be an improvement... sounds like the juice ain’t worth the squeeze. Thanks for your advice

Welcome aboard!

Biggest gain from an intake is the increase in engine sound from up front. And if you like that sort of thing, your MPG will most definitely drop as you will find yourself with your foot into it more often. More smiles per miles!
