    Well now that I’ve changed out the clutch on our test mule 10th Gen Civic Si I’m able to lay into it and see what this baby turbo with the 1.5L motor can really do. Thank you to ClutchMasters for providing us with a very strong clutch — it held up through all the abuse I just put this car through.

    I am currently using KTuner on our test vehicle as this is the only software available to me that provides me with all the necessary control to really work on the innards of this ECU and dig deep into what this motor, turbo and ECU can do. Big thank you to them for providing the software we needed to get some serious testing under way.

    See the blog post for full commentary!

    bruh

    I see in your blog you dialed it down to 240-245whp and ~290-300wtq

    So your Si is fast as a WRX? :O

    It's at this moment, I knew I fucked up by buying first gen and buying a CVT for that matter. FML.

    So when you come out with the turbo upgrade, can the non si 1.5 make this kind of power with a good clutch?

    Yes - a company in China already has a non SI 1.5 with a custom turbo making 306hp.

    This is just tune and clutch right? No downpipe, intake or catback?

    I know people with manuals are going to bash on this but I kinda wish someone would make an aftermarket cvt upgrade. Nothing crazy, just something that can hold around 240whp reliably. I know there are other cars out there that can be chosen but I just love the 10gen civic style so much. Just want more POWWWWAAAA without having to row my own gears while sitting in morning and afternoon traffic.

    Not likely to ever see a CVT upgrade. Especially now that the Si is out. Most of the guys into serious modding are jumping ship to manuals already, from what I've seen.
