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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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).

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:
