  1. RAZIR LED Headlight Kit for EX model

    I posted this before explaining what CANBUS is and how it relates to lighting: http://www.civicx.com/threads/diy-fog-light-bulb-install-also-installed-hid-headlight-bulbs-h11-55w.880/page-3#post-11191
  2. 2016 Civic vs 9th gen Civic Si Acceleration Tests by Hondata

    Could have to do with the different gearing between the cars too. Often has an effect on initial accelerations.
  3. Honda R&D officer says 2.0L turbo VTEC launches next March for U.S.!

    Yes, also used in the new BMW X5/X6 M models and the M235i.
  4. Honda R&D officer says 2.0L turbo VTEC launches next March for U.S.!

    High performance torque converter autos are getting pretty close in terms of performance. The ZF 8 speed is one for example.
  5. Honda R&D officer says 2.0L turbo VTEC launches next March for U.S.!

    I take it you've checked your own sources and they have told you the same info about the 2.0L in the next Si?
  6. Honda R&D officer says 2.0L turbo VTEC launches next March for U.S.!

    Seems like more than one "source" pointing to this being true. A detuned 2.0L would be a huge win for Si owners, not so much for CTR if they care to be in exclusive company. Which they will by virtue of price tag if nothing else.
  7. Latest 2017 Civic Si speculation from HondaPro Jason

    That's a longer wait than I was hoping for but I'm at least relieved they are going with the more powerful engine route with the detuned 2.0L turbo and the 6 speed.
  8. Does anyone know the thread size for wheel locks for Touring?

    Wheel bolt / lug thread size should be 12 x 1.5
  9. clear bra for the civic?

    It's true, and black is also the easiest color to see the film edge when dirt, dust, etc. accumulate at the edge of the film.
  10. Need some tint advice!

    These are 3M films so each of them should last years and years. But each one has their own hue and color so make sure to compare them in person. For me the FX Premium always seemed more greenish than Color Stable. Color Stable was always the perfect color to me. Crystalline of course is best...
  11. Si Pricing thought

    Sub 20 pound 18" wheels would be nice. 9th gen Si wheels were 23.5 pounds so shaving 3.5 or more pounds off each wheel would be great for performance and handling. :thumbsup:
  12. New Type-R Render Based off the New Coupe

    Looks real nice, but this is basically based off the current Type R and not the elements seen on the 10th gen Type R already spied like the front bumper design, front lip spoiler design, side skirts, fenders, etc. Compare to:
  13. Si with a 6 cylinder, welcome or not?

    Hell yea I'd love to have an N/A 6 cylinder, but that's a pipe dream I think. Don't think we'll even see a naturally aspirated 4 cylinder. Wish we could just get a 8200 RPM screaming N/A 4 cyl like the 8th gen Si had.
  14. Wards 10 Best Engine Test Drive Review: 2016 Civic 2.0L

    I know. Guess my wording was confusing. These were the last Honda engines to win: 2014: 3.5L V6 (Accord V6) 2013: 3.5L V6 (Accord V6) and 2.4L (Accord Sport)
  15. Wards 10 Best Engine Test Drive Review: 2016 Civic 2.0L

    Here's a list of past Wards Best Engine winners - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ward%27s_10_Best_Engines Last Honda engine to win was in 2014 for the 3.5L V6 VTEC engine in the Accord. Same V6 engine also won in 2013 as well as the 2.4L Accord Sport engine.
  16. 2016 Civic Coupe modified in different colors, wheels, brakes (updated w/ more angles and wheels)

    Not only might super huge brakes be overkill in term of stopping power needed on the 2016 Civic, but if they're heavier than stock brakes they'd add unsprung weight to the car - the worst and most performance sapping kind of weight you can gain on a car.
  17. 2016 Honda Civic goes 6.7s 0-60 -- tested by Edmunds (calls Civic a game changer)

    I posted this in another thread -- The 2.0L is a K20 family engine. It's a modern day K20, but with VTC on both the exhaust and intake cams, and variable lift (VTEC) on the intake side. Compare this to past K series motors which had VTEC on either/both intake and exhaust sides, and only VTC on...
  18. Wards 10 Best Engine Test Drive Review: 2016 Civic 2.0L

    Yep, this is what I posted in other threads: For the US, the 1.5T only has dual overhead cam phasing control (VTC), but no variable lift (VTEC). The 2.0L is a modern day K20, but with VTC on both the exhaust and intake cams, and variable lift (VTEC) on the intake side. Compare this to past K...
  19. Thoughts on 10G 2016 Civic Si

    That self centering effect you feel in older cars steering is the hydraulic steering rack at work. Hydraulic steering is connected mechanically to the wheels/tired but modern day electric power steering (EPS) racks aren't. That's the short of it. Here's a geek out physics explanation: With...
