  1. All-new 2022 Civic Si Revealed 🚨

    If the BOSE in the Civic is anything like what they put in the RSXs, it isn’t anything to be excited about.
  2. $3000 commuter aka “sh*tbox” exceeded my expectations!

    Yeah… both the RSXs were in NY state. While they seemed fairly rust free at the time I let them go I sold them off before moving back down to the southeast. The ‘86 (actually my 2nd ‘86… I totaled my first when I was a teen) I let go since I was moving to NY and I didn’t want it to rot out. It...
  3. $3000 commuter aka “sh*tbox” exceeded my expectations!

    I’ve had that F-150 for several years. It was my late fathers and maybe worth $1000. It’s never let me down. Spent $1300 on a ‘86 300zx in ‘04. Drove it to ‘08. Sold it for 2 grand. Put one set of rear shocks in it Spent $6k on an old Caddy. Basically unloaded it on a trade for 2 or 3k. Needed...
  4. Anime Watchers - What are You Watching Right Now?

    I never could stick with any anime series I’ve ever seen past 4 or 5 episodes. It’s me… not the anime I’m sure. Tried Cowboy Bebop for the first time this year. Made it a few episodes and gave up. Except one: Excel Saga. Something was just batshit crazy enough to hold my attention for the whole...
  5. Friendly Civic people

    Best I could do on short notice.
  6. Engine mods for K20C2?

    Last gen was R18s… nothing to do with an L15B7. There were turbo versions in the wild as the aftermarket supported it. I’m sure the gen 9 forums have discussed turbocharging a CVT-equipped R18 to death. I used to frequent them when I had my ‘15 but I never followed many R18 threads.
  7. Engine mods for K20C2?

    Compressions being close when comparing a port injection engine to a DI engine should be taken with a grain of salt. DI has allowed modern turbo cars run far higher compression than in the past. C2s gained a little compression over A3s. It’s one of the few differences on paper to help efficiency...
  8. Front wheels spinning

    Another vote for AVSA with enough BBG to limit power in 1st to not overly need AVSA. Stand with medium/moderate and 18-20# and see what that gets you. Remember to have cruise off or it’s disabled. You may need to drop BBG by a pound or two between summer and winter from both the car making a...
  9. Engine mods for K20C2?

    I’d lurk the RSX forums for information since the C2 looks to be an A3 derivative on paper. They didn’t get much love and C2s don’t get much either, but there is a good deal more history and information over there. In 3-4x the amount of time they’ve done much more with A3s (albeit with a...
  10. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    I… drove it. After being gone for a month or two, it sure did seem quick. 😁
  11. 1.5T Ktuner 1.2 Lack of Boost?

    Better too long than too short. I think Confucius said that. 🤔
  12. 1.5T Ktuner 1.2 Lack of Boost?

    This sounds familiar. The PRL stage 1 hose can be a bit short. Mine wasn’t a very good fit and required a good bit of pushing to get it to mate up to the TIP on one end and the air box in the other without wanting to pop off as I tightened the hose clamps. Check and make sure it didn’t actually...
  13. Tuning Question

    I reflashed TSP stage 1 on 7/31/2018. I used a version that made the most powerful map that peaked at 24.5# of boost be the one the car started on and that’s the only map I ever used. I reflash to a similar setup for TSP Stage 1+… which I think peaks at 26#. I am stock other than the PRL stage 1...
  14. Stuck between two tires and looking for recommendations!

    Those are the all seasons I mentioned. I opted for the summer variant as I live in GA and our winters are super mild. I can’t say enough how impressed I am with the wet traction with their handling, dry traction and noise being good… though nothing spectacular. I had the stock Goodyear summers...
  15. Stuck between two tires and looking for recommendations!

    I’ve enjoyed the summer variant of the General G-max and there is an all season variant that is aggressively priced. There should be some testing data over on Tire Rack for them (I chose mine based on that data and over the generally liked Indy 500 summer tires). Noise is good and wet traction...
  16. What's your final grade of this 10th Gen Si?

    Driving Characteristics: A Comfort/Seats: B+ Fit/Finish: B- Tunability: B Reliability: B Dealer Satisfaction: D Overall Value: A- (If you bought one in 2017-2019 for the Si) My criticisms (and assume everything else is peachy keen otherwise) for the Si specifically is the adjustable dampers...
  17. TSP Stage 1+ ?

    Im sure it’d be of some help. My driving style tends to lend itself to occasional bursts of not-excessive speed. As such, I just don’t really hear soak the car. The hardest I ever really drive is doing some 2nd towards the top of 3rd pulls on a couple mile loop going on and off the interstate a...
  18. 2023 Nissan Z

    I’m really torn about selling my 300zx. I figure once I sell it I’d never get a Z32 or older again. I swore off the 350z/370z as, other than that one 280z that was before Nissan/Datsun started turbocharging their cars… all the other 4 Zs were turbos. As good as the Z33/Z34 we’re… and as well as...
  19. Turbo lost

    Good luck. This is a “do something now” kind of issue. You don’t want to wait around to check the install/straight undo it. The cars software is doing a hell of a job trying to adjust fueling and timing to keep the engine from killing itself. If you have to drive it from point A to point B to...
  20. Turbo lost

    Recommend removing that intake, and in the course… ensure it was properly connected downstream the MAF sensor and you’re not letting a ton of that’s not getting read by the sensor. Air not ready by sensor = running rich and killing the engine. If the install was good, then there’s something...
