No codes will be thrown because there are no sensors on the J-pipe. I have one on my '04 V6 Accord and love it. No dyno numbers but everyone I've ever heard, including me, can feel the extra power. Might be a little harder to feel on a 2-ton SUV but I have no doubts it'll make power. AWD dynos are rare.
Just curious, any change in the exhaust notes on the Accord?

None noted which makes me curious about the change in tone on the MDX.

I suppose the main reason of HP gain with the J-pipe is the deleted cat.converter? I already have it deleted and wondering if the RV6 j-pipe will actually give any benefit

The 3rd cat delete does not contribute much to the overall gained power. The reason it was deleted is because it would not fit with the long tube design.

The gains are mainly from the larger and longer runners. The longer runners use scavenging to produce low end power.

Ritchie,

Not to uplift a very old thread, but if you still need a 09 MDX. I have one available and I am in the Chicagoland area.

I would say this is dead in the water. The OP hasn't been on since November of 2012.
