    Oh, regarding the actual topic at hand...the engine is out in the wild and being used currently. HPD/Shea Racing just ran the engine at 25 hours of thunderhill where it performed great under the most rigorous of demands in near factory form. It will also be used in the Pirelli World Challenge this year.

    Look up Honda Racing/HPD on Facebook and you will find some info. You can also look at the Shea Racing website for a few details.

    Hatchback is L15BA. I've stumbled upon L15BB maybe this will be the civic si engine code. WHo knows. Like I said no one really knows, just gotta wait till Honda officially reveals the production model and all the specs.

    Shawn Church helped tune that car with Hondata a while back. I don't think it has the "production" Si powertrain (but should be very close in specs). I'll ask him when I get a chance.

    You are going to make a statement like that and not back it up with a source? Not buying it. No one knows shit about it. Tired of people making assumptions based off nothing.

    I don't post anything with information unless I can link it to a reputable website. I keep looking at postings of the current engine code, L15b7, and couldn't help myself. Hahaha

    A lot of guessing and speculation about Si engine specs, when they have one RIGHT THERE!



    Turns out, they were misleading the audience. Skip to 7:40

    Actually, quite a good video for those wanting to deconstruct the 1.5. Though he failed to mention that the CRV's variant runs a larger IC/intake resonator to better match the flow of the turbo.

    Looks like it should be pretty easy in the way of overhauling the system.
