  1. Rev9 Intercooler Civic SI Install Review

    for me it would be more to not give money to china who is currently destryoing the world than to pay more for quality products. IMO, PRL and 27WON would be for those who will be modifying their turbo at one point, where the REV9 and others are for those who don't plan on heavy mods or tracking...
  2. 1.5T Hasport 62A Rear Motor Mount Impressions

    The car does feel more responsive/not like there's a rubber band between the engine and the ground when you accelerate and you hear more of the engine/trans noises, which I like. The rest is in my other reply.
  3. 1.5T Hasport 62A Rear Motor Mount Impressions

    Think more like 3-500km before you notice it is a bit less harsh. 5000km+ before it really settles in. Having to do it again I'd try the type-R mount. The car feels like I put solid mounts everywhere when I take off and at certain rpms. I don't mind it too much but it did loosen some things in...
  4. Can someone explain torque vs. engine speed?

    Yes, if you stay below what the rod can handle it shouldn't break. Then we get into detonation...that's why we have kcontrol on our computer to limit it, but detonation still happens a little. For those who don't know what happens when an engine detonates is when the power stroke starts pushing...
  5. Can someone explain torque vs. engine speed?

    as Myx was saying, let's say that at 2500rpm, the rod takes 300ft-lbs or torque over 0.1s(making up numbers here) between when it's at the top of its course to where it's at the bottom and the exhaust valve starts to open(power stroke). The rod material is able to withstand 300 ft-lbs max(let's...
  6. Carbon buildup on valves in GDI

    From a bunch of trials by aftermarket companies, our cars don't need a catch can apparently, as the stock system does a really good job even with more boost. I don't hear a catch can being a needed mod if you track your car like other cars I've had like a BRZ for example.
  7. Si PRL Short Ram Intake (SRI) Vs Cobra Cold Air Intake: Is the CAI worth the extra cost and why?

    with your ktuner and Vit tune, the improvement from the CAI would definitely be noticeable, especially if you opt to get the race maf. Ktuner comes with base maps for their race MAf so you get an extra 5-8hp more from this alone, plus power from the CAI itself once you drive the car a bit and it...
  8. DPF Temp, Honda CR-V 4th gen, OBD

    other than a garage quality scan tool(10k$+ with program updates) to access all your data, if you do have a DPF temp sensor, I don't think there are tuners for the diesel engine in the CR-V that I know of. If there is, then I would suggest calling the company to see if their tuning platform can...
  9. Transmission fluid

    you need a light trans oil, not 75w-90 or the like. AMSoil makes a very good oil for our transmissions, helps shift a bit easier as well. https://www.amsoil.ca/lookup/auto-and-light-truck/2019/honda/civic/1-5l-4-cyl-engine-code-l15ba-9-turbo/?volume=metric-volume
  10. Corrosion made Worse by Underpan?

    spent 1 winter so far and had the car rust proofed when I bought it. The salt doesn't really go above the under tray. If you take the time to clean underneath a few times per winter it it'll be fine. Idk if you guys have Crown rust proofing in the states but it's a pretty good anti rust...
  11. Ktuner Knock Control question??

    when I was running 94 it never went over .54. After moving to another province and 94 not being readily available and have a reservation on my way to work selling 91 for cheaper than 87, it stays at .49 during normal driving but if I drive it real hard and go over 5500 rpms a couple times it'll...
  12. 1.5T Questions about PRL's Stage 1 kit

    no, I don't like oiled filters on fuel injected engines for the reasons listed above. Even if it rarely happens I'd rather not take the chance to break a 3-500$ sensor just because I don't use the right filter. I'm running an AEM filter. I just bought the tube from PRL and the filter separate...
  13. 1.5T Questions about PRL's Stage 1 kit

    didn't notice any performance(between 3-5hp) or fuel economy gains but there is a bit of sound and if you drive in urban areas and your boost is over 15 or 16 psi you'll hear the turbo wooshing and a little bit of the blowoff when you release the throttle. If you're looking for performance look...
  14. Question - aftermarket perfomance DryFlow filter

    I haven't made any research with oil analysis but AEM's dry flow filter has been a go to for me on my last 3 cars, which i drove for 2-300 000km each(2009 Suzuki sx4 had a CAI with a cone filter, 2014 Corolla and this Civic(def not 300 000k on this one yet, but 40k/year) had a panel filter) and...
  15. Replacement RMM vs. RMM Inserts?

    got the hasport 62A thinking the NVH would be minimal and they're not cold or off idle. I've got over 35000 km on it so it's broken in for sure and is a lot tamer than it was brand new but you'll get vibrations when taking off, no matter how you do it. found i get some vibrations when...
  16. Maintenance items that are time dependent regardless of mileage?

    Yes, because breathing outside your car filters it too? It's a way of keeping the evaporator and heater radiator cleaner for sure but let's not get crazy about cleaning the air or we'll end up with more cases of allergies than we currently have because people are becoming too clean. Time to go...
  17. Accessory mode kills the battery?

    it's most likely a 45 Ah, no way a car battery only has 2.1 Ah brand new, you wouldn't evne run the radio on that. You need to look at the reserve capacity of the batteries. Similar size batteries will be similar in capacities unfortunately so if you want a better battery you'll have to settle...
  18. Rear brakes

    next time, just take the pins out and clean them up and grease them, put them back. There is no way pins are worn out at this low mileage. They should be good for at least 200000 km. I usually do a yearly brake service where I'll remove the pins and clean up all the rust and re-grease everything...
  19. Accessory mode kills the battery?

    if your headlights are in automatic they will sometimes turn on and stay on even in acc mode. Noticed this with the long winters of Northern Canada. May be a good habit to turn your headlights off if you're using acc mode often. Something to consider.
  20. How far can you push the 1.5L?

    from seeing dynos of ktuner 21 psi with an otherwise stock engine hit 205 wheel hp and 260 wh torque I'd say add those bolt ons and you're damn near 255 crank if not past it. The civic hatch 1,5t rated at 180 often pulls 185-190 wheel hp so adding 50 from a tune and intake and some exhaust isn't...
