    Guys, follow up questions for 2.5 non vgt owners...
    if I am not mistaken, conventional turbo intercooler, just like in our non-vgt, kicks in at around 2500 rpm.

    Well, sa mga naka non-VGT, I copied prince777's sd card files, loaded the SD card to my HU & ativated the GPS/ Navi. Gumana, kaso distorted yung map. Any tips on how to correct this?

    Anyone ever experience this before? Appreciate sharing your experience.
    What your experiencing is the turbo lag. Its normal for a non-VGT Monty taking a steep incline. Nararanasan ko din yan paakyat ng Baguio.

    If my memory serves me right, total oil needed is around 6.3 liters. If your budget would allow synthetic oil is best. Otherwise just choose any brand that fits your budget with a minimum API CD spec (CI-4, CI-4 Plus, CJ-4 are best in ascending order) and a multigrade viscosity SAE 15W-40. Shy away from using monograde viscosity oils like SAE30 or 40.

    Just completed by Northeastern Luzon run this week. 2000+ km (Bacoor->Ballesteros Cagayan->Santiago City->Subic->Bacoor) clocked in, with average 16km/L on Petron Dieselmax. (GLX Non-VGT, MT)

    - Turbo lag indeed happens most of the time, pero since MT, I was able to compensate it with shifting to 3rd gear if I need to overtake while running between 40-60 kph. Once RPM gets between 2.2-2.5k , the sweet turbo whine rings out and I can now go to higher gear as appropriate.
    - For uphill climbs, I am very much satisfied. From a crawling or even dead stop 1st gear everything seems working fine as expected. ( Perfect scenario when tailing the trucks piled up climbing at Dalton Pass zigzag road and overtaking from 1 truck to another in the queue.)
    - Hard suspension issue finally broken-in, unlike the 1st 1k kms, where I literally bounce from my seat driving through rough roads. My ideal tire pressure PSI is at 29(front) and 32(rear).
    - TOTAL CAVEAT: Driver seat, including front passenger seat really NOT ERGONOMIC. My lower back suffered lots of pains during the long drive. I think this is mainly due to the lack of good lumbar support design on the seat + hard cushion for the head rest.. (baseline=CR-V Gen1)
