Does anyone know if any performance parts have been released for the 2022 MDX Type S or are in the works? :)
Someone has to go first…. ;)


More seriously - I haven’t but you may want to check out stuff for the TLX-S to see what’s possible or may be able to be swapped in.

Do a Resonater Delet on the car since nobody makes a performance exhaust yet. Defenitly an improvment.
So far I found just Speed Chips.
I reached out to Injen to see if they can build me a Cold Air Intake System.
Waitinbg on response.

As already posted - JB4 Tuner (I have read on the JB4 Tech forum that someone has installed in the MDX Type S with good results). It is in the BETA stage.
Good research here JB4tech.com - International Turbo Tuning Discussion

PRL motorsports has an air filter replacement - MDX Type S is not listed, but the TLX Type S is (same filter). PRL motorsports is also working on upgraded intercooler and piping/hoses (already selling TLX Type S).

K Tuner is currently working on TLX Type S tune and the MDX Type S will soon follow.
Nothing listed yet KTuner LLC

Infinity Motorsports Racing is currently working on upgraded intercooler and piping/hoses for the TLX Type S and moving to the MDX Type S afterwards. Pics on FB page.

Good info thanks. I'd be interested in something that can flash the ECU with a tune through the OBD port which is what I've done with a previous vehicle, but anything beyond that will probably be overkill for my needs.

I ordered my JB4 today. Will report on findings, but I have used JB4 tuners extensively on other cars and expect it to be great. Based on the logs I have been reading this powerplant has excellent cooling from the factory even when pushing near 400 WHP and 400WTQ it still has no problem keeping IAT's down.

Excited to hear your findings! Is your MDX otherwise stock?

Stock and under 200 miles on it. I have a problem...

Looks like an intercooler is in development at PRL motorsports. They have an air filter drop in offering but I have to have a look and see if the TLX air intake matches the MDX air intake for the intake pipe upgrade.

So I received my JB4 today and well, damn this car has some balls now!

Couple of notes:
  • This JB4 for the MDX is the easiest JB4 I have ever installed. You could legit have this thing on and off again in 10 minutes. Major selling point! on my Golf R and GTI you had to go under the car for one of the connectors
  • When installing you really dont need much more than the guide they offer for the TLX type S, everything is the same. Be SURE to let the car sit for a while unlocked before you start, the computer does not like it if the MAF sensor is unplugged while the car is not fully "off". It doesn't cause any problems but it sure does light up like a Christmas tree for a while after you do it.
  • I removed a bunch of the sound deadening foam under the engine cover. They are muffling our turbo noises!
I set the car to map 3 right away (+4.5PSI boost) and I can do a mini burnout from a dig... will do some more testing this evening when I can get to some empty flat roads and run some dragy measurements against stock.

Keep us posted! Do you have any photos of how you ran the wires/connectors?

I'm happy that you can install and remove easily as I do my service at Acura and assume I should remove beforehand.

Since I'm in this thread...anyone hear anything about aftermarket exhaust yet?? I've only seen people who have done the mid muffler delete.

If there was anything to say other than is what is in their install instructions I would tell you... its exactly the same as the TLX in the engine bay.

On the topic of exhaust, I found this part for the TLX - ATLP A-Pipe, 2021+ Acura TLX (Type-S), 3" diameter, EP00018APRP: Honda-Acura Enthusiast Parts - Genuine OEM, JDM, Performance, Maintenance, and Specialty Parts

Which based on youtube videos does far more for the exhaust note than a resonator delete would.

I do not know if it fits the MDX, but its so easy to install I may give it a go regardless. ATLP A-Pipe, 2021+ Acura TLX (Type-S), 3" diameter, EP00018APRP: Honda-Acura Enthusiast Parts - Genuine OEM, JDM, Performance, Maintenance, and Specialty Parts

There is no O2 sensor after this 3rd cat, so it wont affect emissions done by OBDII
