  1. Let’s Talk Brake Upgrades for Track Use

    As weird as it may sound, I think a rock or pebble might have gotten between the disc and pad causing that. There’s no signs of the pad overheating which would cause the pad to crack
  2. C&R/PWR Oil Cooler Kit Development

    Things have been difficult due to covid. Last update I got from Cory was that PWR in Australia will be helping with development. No rough ETA at this time
  3. Lust's FK8 Civic Type R Track & Street Build

    You get less rear end downforce but I haven’t experienced a noticeable impact.
  4. Advice on Intake

    Eventuri IMO is the best on the market currently. I noticed it was a bit more efficient compared to my HVI. Drop in filters for the money are tough to beat though. Won’t notice gains without a tune really
  5. KTuner Extended Testing And Tune Results

    Knock sensor would be nice! @KTuner !
  6. RV6 Ceramic Coating Damage

    It’s supposed to help retain heat inside the exhaust. Good for limiting heat soak / under hood temps and making more power
  7. RV6 Ceramic Coating Damage

    I have the black coating but mine is fine
  8. Lust's FK8 Civic Type R Track & Street Build

    I have a friend that I purchase parts from. I can ask him if you’d like?
  9. Is Hondata basemap(s) a set and forget?

    Hondata basemaps can be quite agressive / run lean. It can make more power or be more efficient but this is bad for coolant temps. This will cause the car to overheat much quicker on track. I’d highly recommend getting a custom tune by a reputable tuner for the best results
  10. Let’s Talk Brake Upgrades for Track Use

    You’d want new rotors ideally but you could get away with resurfacing blank rotors if they still have the right amount of thickness
  11. Let’s Talk Brake Upgrades for Track Use

    I’d do the P3 but the Club Racer will also work. I ran the CR cause I had it on hand. I’ll be moving to R7/R5 for track use soon.
  12. Let’s Talk Brake Upgrades for Track Use

    The R7 compound probably wouldn’t be well suited for AutoX as it needs some temp to perform its best. I’d say try a staggered setup like R5 and P3 rear. PMU CR is decent but the Paragon pads are much better. You can try centric blanks or see if Paragon can make you a set of blanks. Directional...
  13. MAPerformance FK8 Type R Intake PRE-RELEASE Information Post!

    I can datalog some highway cruises / typical commute to see what IATs would be observed. I can also do some WOT pulls and log all sensors on the car. I have some HPDE days lined up as well and can do some head to head testing there. I also recently got my car on the dyno and have some baseline...
  14. MAPerformance FK8 Type R Intake PRE-RELEASE Information Post!

    If @MAPerformance is confident in their intake, they can send me one to test on the street. I’d be able to compare it to my logs with my previous HVI setup and my current Eventuri setup. The HVI and Eventuri are arguably the two best options currently available. I think most people would cross...
  15. Transmission Grinds/Lockouts Causes & Solutions

    Made a big difference for me. Shifting overall was just a bit smoother especially on track where it would get hot. Yes 2.3qt
  16. MAPerformance FK8 Type R Intake PRE-RELEASE Information Post!

    In terms of heat conduction Aluminum: k - 200 SS 304: k - 14 Carbon Fiber epoxy composite: k - 5 ABS plastic: k - 0.21 So not nearly as bad as aluminum but SS304 IMO just adds unnecessary weight and heat when there are better materials available.
  17. MAPerformance FK8 Type R Intake PRE-RELEASE Information Post!

    Well considering that they’re advertising this as the “best” intake, you better bet it’s gonna come with criticism.
  18. MAPerformance FK8 Type R Intake PRE-RELEASE Information Post!

    Holy heat soak Batman. That airbox is going to need a lot more than just some gold tape to prevent serious heat conduction. Some DEI tunnel shield might help. You might want to post more specs other than “this is the BEST intake on the market”. Considering that a lot of independent testing has...
