Nah, I put the bumper back on yesterday cause I had to meet my gf. I was just about to remove it. Yesterday wasn't a total waste of time cause I painted the front emblem black.

taking out the resonator is so pointless. i just did it a couple days ago and it felt like it loss power. it bogs a lil when i floor it at 3k and the vtec doesn't really kick anymore. i just put it back on tonight and it feels so much more peppy and fast. i advise you guys not to do it unless you are changing to CAI or SRI. If you are wondering, i have a k&n drop-in and Mugen Catback. the resonator is made for thottle response and sound.

^^Did y'all reset the ECU? And the resonator's whole purpose is to lower intake's sound - but at the same time, it robs power with all its twists and turns inside. Don't mistake smoothness for bogging. Just a suggestion though - but I don't know how you could possibly lose power by taking off something that robs it in the first place (unless the ECU is not reset and hasn't had a chance to compensate for the change yet)

Yeah it takes time. Supposedly your car "learns" that something has been done and adjust to it.

what i did was;

- disconnect the negative terminal of the battery
- pump the brakes a few times (i think its to get rid of any residual current)
- reconnect the battery
- let your car idle for about 10-15mins with no load ie fans, radio, lights
- turn car off

somebody correct me if im missing any steps?

You wont get any water in there - I made a CAI, and I've driven a couple times in the rain and gone through a couple car washes with the underbody spray (and I drive slow through the underbody spray part to get it good and clean) and checked for water and maybe a few drops got up on top of the plastic underbody diffuser, but nothing got on the filter. - Should be good. And don't worry about the dealership. Nothing can void your warranty as some people say. If something were to go wrong and they could prove it was the intake, you would be liable for costs of repair, but the rest of your warranty for everything else would still be intact (unless of course they pinpointed everything that ever went wrong to your intake - but that won't happen). But they can't just look under the hood and see that you have an intake (especially when you don't have any problems related to the intake) and say - "Ooooh, that just voided your warranty... sorry guy"
