  1. 2.0L CivicX 2.0L Tuning - BIG Gains Confirmed For The Second Time

    From what I understand according to KTuner themselves the existing tune already makes VTEC engage at the optimal RPM, so what would be the benefit of being able to control when it kicks in? Besides it maybe being more fun I guess.
  2. Concept Acura ILX Replacement

    Doubt it would ever happen. Hatches don't sell well in the U.S period, especially now with SUV's taking everything over. So something like an Acura hatch wouldn't really make sense and it would also only be interesting to us enthusiasts rather than average consumers.
  3. a question to those living in Ohio and bought a newer used car!!

    If you're getting the price you want then just snag the car and ride off into the sunset. A car that new is probably in good condition anyway, only so much can go wrong.
  4. Type R Fail. #Submitted #Denied #Unknown

    Yeah probably a warranty issue. Unless the owner was abusing it and I mean REALLY abusing it by launching, money shifting, revving the nuts off of it while it's cold etc. And even then on a car like the type R which is meant to be driven hard shouldn't blow up especially with basic mods like...
  5. Car battery during the pandemic

    Typically you would only worry about battery issues when you're leaving your car sitting for couple weeks or more. 6 days shouldn't affect anything and the car should start right up. But agreed with other people, you clearly bought the Si because you wanted a fun ride so it wouldn't hurt to give...
  6. So many issues...

    If it had only 5 miles on it, then there's not that much shady about it. Likely they are right and all of those flaws were errors during the transport phase of the car. If they are willing to fix all of it at no expense to you and you saved $5,000, then I would be patting myself on the back for...
  7. a question to those living in Ohio and bought a newer used car!!

    Yeah a dealer should never be forcing you to buy a warranty., that's a big red flag. If you know for a fact that the car is in good shape and they are willing to sell it to you at a fair price without the warranty then you could grab it, but personally I don't like doing business with dealers...
  8. 2.0 vs 1.5?

    I've had my 2.0 CIvic since 2018 and if I had to do it again i'm picking the 1.5. The 2.0 is a rock solid reliable engine that will never let you down, and with the base tune I have on it it's actually not bad to drive at all. But the 1.5 has so much more usable power throughout and makes...
  9. so this was annoying

    I've never had this happen to me and i've filled my tires at the gas station multiple times. I just take the air nozzle which doesn't have a clamp or anything, stick it in the tire stem and it's good to go. I think maybe it's just the station probably, no reason why air going into a tire would...
  10. Thinking of getting money for my car at Carmax; should I turn it completely stock (minor mods/cosmetics installed)?

    Here's my experience with carmax, I almost always got a better price selling my car at the brand's dealer rather than selling it at carmax. I found that they always gave me wholesale prices and overall their offers for cars that i've had appraised by them were laguhable. Maybe your carmax is...
  11. friend just paid 60k for a 2021 boost blue type r.

    Agree with everyone else...anyone who is stupid enough to do that deserves what's coming. $60k on a Civic is just plain ridiculous...Type R or not.
  12. 275hp/260tq Elantra N confirmed for US

    That looks really clean, especially with those wheels. 8 speed DCT with those power numbers will make it a pretty quick little car. Too bad the 11th gen Si is not being released till 2022.
  13. Took the Civic out on a back road....

    Long story short, found myself on a rural mountain road in my base model Civic with the 2.0 engine and CVT. Probably the least enthusiast friendly trim. So you would expect it to be kind of lousy on a back road right? Well wrong. I was shocked at how competent the Honda made their economy trim...
  14. Si vs. Forte GT vs. GLI

    Here's something not mentioned. If you take the GLI that is actually comparable to the Si's pricepoint and not the top of the line autobahn, the interior is actually a little worse than the Civic's. The gauge cluster doesn't even have a color display or helper screen but rather an information...
  15. Any past hondas anyone's had?! Would love to see them

    Couldn't find my own picture because its on my old phone but here's a picture of my exact spec "Honda" i had years ago. It was a 6 speed manual with the factory brembos and everything, most desirable color and transmission combo possible (imo). This was the peak of Acura.
  16. Odd rpm surge

    Not sure what hazards have to do with it but fluctuation between 830-850 rom while idling is perfectly normal especially with a/c on since it feeds off the engine. One day I was bored waiting inside my car and realized the needle moving ever so slightly up and down occasionally when it was...
  17. The Tuned CivicX Experience & Reliability Thread (for all models)

    Update since my last post in October 2019 Vehicle: 2018 Civix EX (2.0L) Current mileage: ~15.6k miles Total tuned miles: 10,000 miles approx Tuning Device: KTuner Tune: 91+ octane base tune (I only use 93 octane Additional engine mods: K&N air filter Problems/Issues: absolutely none...
  18. 2021 Hyundai Elantra

    It's really simple why manuals are dying out, automatics have become faster and much more efficient than manual transmissions are. Pretty much the only reason to have a manual in a car now is because you like the feeling of driving a manual and want the option. This demographic of people is just...
  19. How fucked am I ?!

    Dude's driving the shit out of his car but at least he knows that his engine has a chance to blow at the end of this. Not like some people we've seen who do that then act shocked when their engine finally kicks the bucket. If OP knows the risks of what he's doing and he doesn't care, then more...
  20. Keep RSX or trade for HB Sport?

    Is your wife the type of person to care about the latest and greatest technology? That's pretty much all the 11th gen is going to have over a 10th gen. It'll have a better infotainment screen and interior technology/look but I cannot imagine that Honda would retire the 1.5 turbo powertrain very...
