Do I need to replace/add antenna if I want to add remote engine start to MDX 2014 base?

The part I ordered is for 2016 according to the TSB. In the 2016 installation instruction, it doesn’t mention that I need new antenna, but it does show additional antenna in MDX 2017 installation instruction.

In the TSB, it doesn’t show the antenna need to be replaced either.

Remote engine start kit: 38015-TZ5-A30

Confirmed. It works very well without changeing antenna for MDX 2014 base.

The range is very good as well.
1) I was able to remote start the car in the super market from about 150 ft away.
2) I was able to start the car in my house which penetrates 3 walls from 50ft away.
