  1. How crazy am i ... 2.0 to 1.5t swap + big turbo kit

    I have a 2.0 manual that has roughly 60k on the clock, i adore this car and i've always wanted to turbo it. Turboing this 2.0 would be a nightmare as seen on the other threads. I work in a shop and have access to tools/lifts/technicians, how difficult would it be ( labor wise ) to purchase a...

    I have looked EVERYWHERE and have not found a exhaust system for the Non-Sport Hatchback other than a single side exit exhaust. Does anyone know of any dual exit exhaust systems for the Civic Hatch Non-Sport? Thanks
  3. The Tuned Civic X Reliability Survey

    Everyone knows that tuning improves performance. But what about reliability and safety? I created this tuning survey thread to document just that. You can include pics, videos, dyno results and timeslips, if desired. If you currently have a tuned 10th gen (or were tuned in the past), help the...

    I’ve searched for hours but can’t seem to find what I’m looking for.... My ride: Civic 1.5T touring sedan Recently purchased Ktuner, now I’d like to upgrade exhaust for increased performance. I’m leaning towards a PRL 3” downpipe paired with a catback exhaust from Invidia (N1) My question...
  5. Tricky Shifter - new 2018 Civic Manual

    A week into driving my new Sport Hatch Manual, I'm feeling the shifter giving more resistance going in/out of all gears whether in drive or while sitting still. I describe it as "crunchy". Somewhat less smooth to push in gear and pull back to nuetral, even making a bit of a crunchy sound...
  6. 1.5T Exhaust suggestions?

    I know there may be many threads on this, but I am looking for a low growl, smooth exhaust, I don't exactly want to sound like a mail-van, and I would like to make my turbo louder. I have the 1.5 CVT, any suggestions? I don't really want to do a muffler delete either... Ktuner coming soon...
  7. CVT rough "shift" in stop and go traffic

    Hey everyone, Sometimes when I am traveling at low speed (1-8mph) in stop and go traffic the car will shake or jerk when I give it a little gas. One of the best examples is when the cars in front of you are stopped so you kind of just coast behind them at low speed (maybe braking a little...

    Does this Civic have variable ignition timing so when I use 89 Octane or 91 I will recieve a performance improvement? (I fell like 89 does when I use it)
  9. Ideal boost by gear?

    Hey everyone, I'm all settled into my 21psi CVT tune and now am starting to wonder about how to best utilize the BBG feature. @dallasjhawk already mentioned in another thread that 17psi in 1st gear will take care of tire spin, but are there any other tips to consider for BBG? Would 18 or 19...

    Guys and gals, I'm a new Civic owner. Just bought an 18 hatchback ex 1.5 turbo CVT. What can I do to get that throttle response and quick launch that gives me the thrown back in the seat feeling? I've researched Hondata Flashpro, but I have my concerns about engine wear and tear. Should I...
  11. Well, I'm knocking.

    I seem to have developed a serious knock. Video to follow. Engine is not quite at operating temp at the time of the video. I'm thinking it sounds like rod knock. I'll be flashing back to stock and if there's no improvement she'll be headed for the dealer. I'll keep this thread updated. Update...

    I have just traded in my Mazda 3 manual (pre 2017 refresh model) for the new, white Civic hatchback manual. Mazda was diesel, Honda is petrol, here are my findings: Exterior: Of course this will be my subjective opinion, but here goes. Civic looks more aggressive, and seems to be "bigger"...

  14. hatchback 1.5 headers

    It was brought to my attention recently that the 1.5 turbo on the hatch has headers as part of the engine, meaning they cannot be changed. Is this true ? IDK if buddy was right or what but that sounds strange.
