Thanks for adding your Type R.

Are those the stock wheels with some trim added? They look cool.

It may be that many CTR owners bought them and leave them alone. Let's face it, the rest of us are basically playing catch up through tuning and bolt ons.

I personally enjoy turning a basic economy car into something sportier than just buying an out of the box race car. God knows the money it takes to push these could've covered the cost of a CTR by the time you get done playing!
Tuning a sh*tbox car does make sense cuz you know, insurance cost.

yea stock I dropped them off at a local pinstriper and told him if he gets an idea run with it. So that’s what he came up with.
I like them. Especially since nobody wants them and with 27mm spacers they fit so mint.

I changed the original post to reflect a new perk for people who've added their car here.
As a thank you for having added your car here, I'll gladly read your datalogs at no charge (Hondata or KTuner). Just put them in a .zip file and make sure the KTuner logs are in .kdlg format only.
As I mentioned last week in another thread, I won't be reading or helping with datalogs unless the car is a part of this thread.

No matter what, I don't read Tunerview logs. They are nothing but spreadsheets and tedious to read/view. The native .kdlg KTuner logs show all parameters in an easy and usable real time graph.

Good, that should be a perk for contributing data to your thread, not something that you do for just anyone. Great idea!

Also, cheers to 200 pages! Another milestone will be 3,000 posts here. I'll be 2,998 at the time of this posting.

Ok that’s cool. I wasn’t aware of that. When I get a couple though I’m going shoot you a DM, if that’s cool.

Only if they're native .kdlg KTuner logs. I won't look at spreadsheet files like I said.

I just saw something a little bit disturbing. Since the thread is close to it's two year anniversary, I decided to message people who posted back then and ask them to add a new post with updates if they haven't already.

Sadly, I saw a number of them had updated/edited their original posts. And I get it, in most threads editing a post isn't a bad thing.

Unfortunately, by overwriting their old original info, there's basically no way for me to update the thread stats.

I check the thread daily to see if there are updates. If instead of doing a new post, you edit your old post, it will get lost in the shuffle and I'll never see it. And that's a problem.

People need to do a NEW POST showing any additional miles or other changes since your last post. Then, I can easily compare the original post and the new update and add the updated info to the first page stats.

I have a note on the correct way to do updates in the first post of the thread and I try to explain this every month or two but I'm not getting through. Sigh.

Tuning device(s) used: Ktuner

Tunes used: TSP Stage 1, currently using tsp stage2 flex fuel tune

Additional related mods: PRL cobra cold air intake , rv6 catted dp /fp combo , full race exhaust , custom flex fuel kit, mishimito catch can ,

Tuning experience notes: Coming from a previously customed tuned fbo 8th gen si by vitviper, you can’t beat the bang for buck that these cars provide , just a tune will transform the car entirely! I’m leaving the 10th gen scene as the dad life has taken over but I will definetly miss it! Sad to part ways with my 10th gen si coupe, hands down best Civic yet.

Thanks for adding your car but I have a few concerns and questions.

For one, you don't know approximately how long you've been tuned or roughly how many tuned miles you've driven? The miles are a really important item for the reliability stats.

You also posted that you have an aftermarket TIP but not an upgraded turbo and you're running a tune designed for a bigger turbo? Is that correct?

Finally, are you datalogging to see how things are running?
