  1. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    I've had both and the Sumitomo's are far better dynamically all around especially in wet and snow. The Firestones had some great tread life though, the Sumitomo's only lasted about half as long. That said the Sumis are probably only a C to C+ tire to me, but good for the money. The Firestones...
  2. Stock parts for sale- stock wheels, stock clutch, stock springs+shocks)

    How much tread on the Tires if you still have them? Are they summers or all seasons?
  3. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    Is that a known fix/tweak, or specific to your setup and fuel? I'm about to replace my plugs anyway and would like to use the best plug/gap setup for my TSP tune only CVT.
  4. 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition: Ultimate Track-Focused Type R Coming to America

    I wonder how much the cheaper the Sportline will be. Less of the ugly aero crap replaced by components from lesser models and riding on 19's should make it cheaper right? Too bad they didn't decide to save 80-100 lbs by making a sedan or coupe version.
  5. Any hypermilers here?

    Just about everything that you said would be true if I were actually following semi's closely, but as I stated I am not. The recommended legal following length is one (~20ft) car length per 10mph. If everyone did that on the highway cars would be spaced 50 yards apart. No one actually does...
  6. Any hypermilers here?

    You don't need to be remotely close to a semi to get a good slipstream effect. 20 car lengths back will give you a good little boost, and riding the bumper will pretty much allow you to turn your engine off except for hills. I try to stay half of the legal tailgating distance, about a half car...
  7. Anyone from Michigan?

    Welcome! Don't even second think it, get a KTuner or Flashpro as soon as there is a sale and you have the cash, you will not regret it. We have incredibly cheap e85 in our area so I would go all out with flex fuel Ktuner and TSP stage 2 if you can swing it.
  8. What's your favorite all-season tire/brand?

    I actually lucked into a set of Pirelli Sottozero 3 winter tires for half price that I couldn't refuse. I put them on my stock wheels and delayed the wheel/tire package until spring. These things are unbelievable though, so much grip yet great snow traction. I can go around a wet corner...
  9. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    Yup, wasn't looking too but researched a lot and decided on the Sottozeros then I found these on closeout for $96 per tire. 225's would have been $187 per tire!! I've had no real issues with all seasons so far, these are a huge upgrade even with the width. I have a hard downhill 90 degree...
  10. Fastest you have ever driven?

    150 indicated in my SC400 on Hwy 19 between Palatka and Salt Springs (Once went 1100 miles from Chicago to Ocala Fl in just under 10 hours flat including stops in that car. I only dipped below 100 a few times the whole way) 260kph indicated in an AMG 500 SEC I borrowed on Hwy 28 between...
  11. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    Crammed some 245/45/17 Pirelli Sottozero 3's on my stock wheels for the winter. They pudge out a little, but that's a good thing for Michigan potholes and ride quality. Rides like butter and a ton more dry grip than the FT140's or Sumitomo HTR's I had on there. It amplifies the soft stock...
  12. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    S and D are just different Transmission modes so no. However you can set up the eco button to have seperate boost and ramp targets, so yes you can do what you want but with the Eco button not the S mode.
  13. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    Yeah, easing into it definitely works better and because I know that and am usually prepared I don't often have this issue. It was a bit of a panicked stab at the throttle when I was totally off guard. Had I floored it from the get go or eased into it I would have been fine. Instead I...
  14. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    Well I had a CVT slip up this morning on the way in that almost put me into an emergency situation. I was pulling onto a 55 mph state road where people often do 70. The pull in is near a bend in the road and as I was pulling out a car came speeding around the corner. I tried to go from like...
  15. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    I'd ask the shop to buy the SI turbo while they are swapping it anyway. It's the same price and you are allowed to choose your own repairs on insurance claims. Edit just checked Majestic and the SI turbo is actually $100 cheaper.
  16. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    You are completely right about hills. Where I am in Michigan it is pretty flat. I am from Vermont and purposely moved to the hilliest area around because I can't stand how flat and straight the roads are here. That target MPG is just that a target and when I climb the hill by my house on the...
  17. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    If you're using the same vehicle at the same station and same time of day in a state like Georgia when the temps don't vary much then you definitely have a good steady baseline. I fill up at several different stations in several states and have stopped at a few with obviously fraudulent pumps...
  18. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    I use the fuel economy meter on the info display that helps a lot. There is not much difference in actual thrust bogging down the throttle to 40mpg with a moderate ignition load than there is to sitting at 60mpg with a very light load. It's literally just a few mm on the gas pedal that you...
  19. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    These are full tanks and not even my best which was 60.8 on the display and ended up 58.9 hand calculated without correcting for the odometer error. My 44.2 mpg fuelly is hand calcs and includes a lot of Uber driving which brought the numbers down that low.
  20. K tuner worth it one CVT?

    It all depends on the fillup because they are not accurate either. You cannot consistently fill to the same level, it is impossible so then you cannot know exactly tank to tank how much gas you used. The only accurate way is pump receipts, but you have to average your tanks together because no...
