I was talking honda passport (2 row variant of the pilot)... the v6 is actually ready for a turbo as far as compression and block/ crank stability.I mentioned in a previous post that the Tesla buying process is not for everyone. Some find it preferable to the dealer experience, most just work through it, while some find the dealer experience to be highly preferable. Last time I bought my Toyota it also took over a month, but that was because we were haggling like crazy people against our assigned slimy salesman. Most people spend 2 to 4 hours haggling w/ sales, haggling w/ finance, waiting around while they take care of all paperwork, and driving home relatively happy with a new car they picked from the lot, that they test drove.
Many reasons to go with a Honda Pilot, and not Tesla. They’re entirely different vehicles and if the Pilot appeals to you, you should definitely not buy a Tesla. However I don’t think you should be “afraid of trying to hack” a Tesla lol. It’s not something that happens by accident. I’m also skeptical of a turbo/tune on a Pilot. Turning it into a beast? Ummm…okay, you do you!
I wouldn't know where to start with "tuning" a Tesla, do they even have OBD ports? Any modern ICE is going to have a OBD to hack into the engine management and if you go more exotic it's even easier with a standalone engine management system if you know what your doing (it's also quite easy to blow up an engine with a Stand alone),
My wife and I have the dealership act down to a science, she was actually pretty disappointed when I told her she can't negotiate against Elon Musk.
