  1. Reservoir Eyesore

    Has anyone removed the tank and painted it with success? I'm getting to that point where my engine bay is coming along but this tank is insanely ugly. Any instructions/tips/tricks on the removal and replacement? I know to use shop rags as it'll spill and maybe top it off some but I'll have to...
  2. 2.0L Any tunes for the 2.0L yet?

    Yeah there's a ton of things you can adjust and tweak to how you want your car to run. I'm not knowledgeable on how to tune a car. I understand the basics of what needs to be done but I do not know how to do it. 91 minimum octane is required to run correctly. I'm guessing there's additional...
  3. 2.0L Any tunes for the 2.0L yet?

    Yep I'm running the Improved Throttle Response II and have been since 5,000 miles (I'm at ~38,000). It makes a night and day difference. Best mod out there for the K20C2's along with the throttle response change. KTuner has a base tune which is the only available one from the company but it is...
  4. 4 Point Harness without bar

    While I wait on my bar to arrive so it can be welded up, I've been running a harness bar using the rear mounting points for the backseats. Granted I don't own a Type R but this may help for those (like myself) who need a visual to understand. I took out the seatbelt assemblies since the harness...
  5. Pcm relearn procedure?

    Touching the terminals together? Just leave it unhooked for at least 10 minutes. I'd let it idle for a solid 5 minutes too so it can adjust the parameters as needed. That's not the official verbiage but I'm pretty sure that's the procedure. Oh and drive it around afterwards. I would think 30...
  6. What did you name your car?

    I named mine Slow so when I refer to my vehicle I say, "yeeeaaah she's slow" which doubles as both her name and the fact that she be really really slow some days. If I ever break the 500hp+ milestone I'll give her a proper name but for nowi t's Slow.
  7. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    Productive 2-3 days. Fixed the mismatched coilovers (I installed them on the wrong side and as such the front sway bar end links broke), put the Whiteline sway end links in, adjusted the harnesses and yes I know I need to get a roll bar at the minimum just waiting on it to get here, mounted the...
  8. Spotify Song Metadata Stuck on Infotainment Display

    I have a specific wrench I throw in my garage when I've had enough and usually my hat follows suit. Lately the car's been behaving but I swear I hear a ever so slight clicking from my recent end link install like something's loose and it's driving (pun intended) me crazy. Yeah that's the fancy...
  9. Engine mods for K20C2?

    The compression ratio for the Type R is actually 9:8 with the K20C2 (NA Base) at 10:8. As far as the transmission yes that will be a point of weakness that will have to be addressed on anything over 250hp which seems to be the limit for the L15B motors. I'm doing some guestimation and saying the...
  10. Spotify Song Metadata Stuck on Infotainment Display

    I find yelling at the car and calling it vulgar names helps. Of course when I say helps I mean me calm down and not the actual issue at hand. The Sport has the fancy infotainment system correct?
  11. K20c2 mods?

    He wasn't exactly forthcoming with some of the answers he provided and did try to act knowledgeable about much of the engine architecture which was either a guess or flat out wrong. However, I respect him for comitting and actually doing something like this. Most people talk about oh I'm going...
  12. Fender rubbing with bigger tires - need stiffer springs, roll fenders, or what?

    If you neglect to roll your fenders they will eventually roll themselves with enough potholes and dips. That's how I did mine. Jokes aside, you want there to be no rubbing at a full turning angle and obviously no rubbing with normal daily driving on a relatively flat surface or else it will...
  13. Spotify Song Metadata Stuck on Infotainment Display

    I had this issue awhile back and I can't remember for the life of me how I resolved it. Disconnect and reconnecting the battery would essentially reset the system so as a last resort that should clear up the issue. I'm not sure how you would turn off the antitheft system for the trims with...
  14. Godspeed Coilovers & Whiteline Front Sway Bar End Links

    Hey CivicX Fam! I recently replaced my OEM front sway bar end links with the more beefy Whitelines. While working on the install I realized that I had my coilovers on the wrong sides. That explains how the OEM ones when from 1 piece to several pieces since the coilover came into contract with...
  15. 2.0L CivicX 2.0L Tuning - BIG Gains Confirmed For The Second Time

    If I'm not mistaken the factory tune is uploaded to the actual KTuner unit itself. As long as you can access the account associated with your KTuner then I believe you can access it via other computers. However, your saved tunes on your computer will not transfer over unless they were uploaded...
  16. Engine mods for K20C2?

    I'm throwing nitrous at it since it's similar to boost just by a different means. Being port-injected and NA really makes me want to just slap some custom JE Pistons with a higher compression ratio and run like a 150hp shot. A progressive system with the proper condition limiters would probably...
  17. Engine mods for K20C2?

    I called up Skunk2 and asked specifically if they know would it fit the K20C2 engine. They told me that they haven't tested the fitment on the newer K-series motors and that it might fit but that they cannot be responsible if it doesn't. These K-series aren't the same K series of old. Here is...
  18. Next round of upgrades on deck.

    I went with the aluminum reflective silver tape. I wrapped it as best I could but as you can tell it's not perfect. Hardly a difference maybe a half a degree while driving and a few while idling? Did it mostly for looks since I didn't want to repaint my intake tubing :P
  19. K20C4 head on K20C2

    I'm not sure the head would bolt up to our engines to be honest. Compare the part numbers between the K20C4 and the K20C2. I know there's an obvious difference between the two heads for the C1 versus the C2 so that leads me to believe that they wouldn't mate up. Even if they did you'd have to...
  20. Next round of upgrades on deck.

    There is a negligable benefit with wrapping the intake in gold or silver reflective tape. Most people I find do it for the looks like I have done. Thermal wrapping the downpipe or a turbo blanket are sure proven ways to improve IAT just be sure you don't thermal wrap your intake piping because...
