  1. Civic Type R vs Mustang Bullitt // Clash Of Cultures // Throttle House

    I had a 10th gen SI, S2000 on R888's, E30 on PSS9's and R888's. Traded the SI in for a fully loaded Mustang GT 2019 with 19' inch wheels on 265mm Width tires on all four corners (allseasons and 500 treadwear rating lmao good for burnouts), gave it a good alignment and for road use it handles...
  2. For Si Owners Only: Si vs. Type R --- Would You Give Up Your Si, if Type R was Available for MSRP?

    I would have bought a Type R if it came with a DCT or a 10 speed automatic trans and some 18' or 19' tires with all seasons from the factory
  3. Updated 2019 Volkswagen GTI

    True, Same came be said of NA, for example you just need to downsshift one more gear. on my 19' Mustang GT I have to be at 4k RPMS to really feel it pull hard 420ft lbs Below that it is still decent but it really gets going at 4k.
  4. Updated 2019 Volkswagen GTI

    Should be opposite at least the consumer turbo cars are terrible at highway speeds due to die off at high rpm. NA for highway and turbo for city
  5. Blew my engine on a 4krpm 2 step cold start.....

    I did when the motor was breaking in. It seemed to stop at around 15k miles.
  6. Blew my engine on a 4krpm 2 step cold start.....

    That's unfortunate to hear. I have been tuned on my SI since 4 miles on it. Ran basemap, vit tune, then TSP stage 1 and it was rock solid. Only gripe I had was the terrible clutch. Had 23k miles of driving while tuned on it and the engine was superb on it when traded in at that time... (no black...
  7. I messed up guys :( ... Shifted from Neutral to 3rd gear at Red Light and pressed gas :(

    LMAO, That's hilarious. I'm sure you made everyone's day. I always laugh when it happens to me out of laziness or being tired. Just laugh it out and move on. I remember I once wen't from almost redline in 2nd to 5th in one of my old BMW's. That was a riot. The transmission tended to stick as if...
  8. Risk of blowing a turbo?

    The turbo itself is not a worry. I would be more worried about the clutch. After you tune it; guaranteed it will slip. If you're CVT I wouldn't go past the stage 0,1,2 and would not enable the fast spool up options or you risk slipping the belt and once it slips it will only get worse. Personal...
  9. Extra payments vs modsss??

    Yes, I think so for the time being in his case. If it causes you to live paycheck to paycheck that isn't happy medium though.
  10. Extra payments vs modsss??

    or be 30 and wake up one day with a seriously life threatening disease or injury that wipes all the money, property, and relationships to your name... Hehe I believe there has to be a happy medium. Tomorrow is not a guarantee especially in today's world. Also it is just a car. Call it cliche...
  11. civic si pricing difference.

    :popcorn: Everyone going to get fat with all the popcorn we are eating lmao
  12. civic si pricing difference.

    Not exactly true. They are offering buybacks. I actually just picked up a 19' Mustang GT Premium. Got tired of the SI on TSP Stage 1, weak clutch, turbo lag between shifts, horrible sounding exhaust (even aftermarket options) didn't feel like putting money into clutch, after 17 months not...
  13. Extra payments vs modsss??

    Having driven a mustang you can't beat 300ft lbs of torque at 2000 rpm and best of all no turbo lag plus 430+ wheel horsepower stock. The Challenger or Camaro or BMW M2 same thing, more torque no turbo lag because twin turbo. The Type R is a good deal but it's compromising on a lot of things...
  14. Extra payments vs modsss??

    Stick to this!! At your age you are better of buying cash and having fun. But for this to work you have to be handy at your own mechanical work. I would have never bought a type r in your situation. If you wanted a new car buy a cheap honda fit sport for 18k OTD or a civic SI for 22k OTD. Pay...
  15. Buying si at audi lot.

    I'll give you some insight. I traded in my 17SI for which they gave me 20k for leaving me with 4k in equity. https://www.tedbritt.com/used-Fairfax-2017-Honda-Civic-Si-2HGFC1E55HH706725 They are asking 21,819 for it. They took a 2500 dollar loss selling the car to me. So i think you could get...
  16. Utility of fast cars?

    Hmm, not sure I will have that issue. I found my TSP stage 1 SI plenty fast. Just got bored of the turbo lag on take off and quick throttle applications, Slow to rev down engine, FWD, and terrible exhaust note. The mustang makes415HP and 397tq at 6k RPM to the wheels. with rising tq from 300...
  17. Utility of fast cars?

    Hmm, I have come across the same dilemma. I had the SI but found that I wanted RWD and a good exhaust note. Therefore, I traded it in for a 19' manual Mustang GT. lol 460HP not as practical as the SI but so much fun and pleasing to the ears. One thing I immediately noticed and missed was actual...
  18. Former STI owners

    It may have been. Even back to factory stock tune the car felt terrible to me and certifiably not worth the MPG penalty for everyday use. Just not much performance to value there. The same friend wants to buy another one. I told him to forget about the STI and just get the WRX if he's dead set...
  19. How many do NOT mod their Si what-so-ever???

    Funny you mentioned the Mustang GT. I just picked one up over the weekend! 19' GT with 401a, fully loaded, upgraded wheels, active exhaust, 1000watt sound system, minus performance pack and a with manual trans. They gave me 21k for my SI with 22k miles and the GT was discounted about 9500. 48k...
