Mishimoto today. Love the bit of juice it gave. Got some good deep sound to the sport now. Turbo is a little more vocal as well

Looks so good. I ordered mine last night. Can you hear any suction noises ?

Yes you can for sure. You get a nice deep tone on acceleration. And that turbo sounds nice when the boot hits

How’s the bypass valve sound when lifting off throttle? Louder?
the recirculating valve doesn’t make much noise maybe none at all. A blow off valve would but shouldn’t be ran on CVT, it will be the intake that you are hearing and some of that turbo.

Bought a pair of SafeJacks for her

Just place the jack underneath the grey part, lift her up, and place the two support pieces in place - one stand supports 6k lbs, which is plenty
Who makes them? They look pretty sturdy

saz,

You can purchase them directly from the manufacturer at https://safejacks.com/collections/rennstand

Or you can purchase them through Amazon.

You’ll need to buy the pinch-weld adapter too, and I think that can only be purchased directly from the company’s site.

I like how I can just use the jack once and engage this stand at various heights. Lifting from the front also raises the entire side of the car (as shown in the picture).


Additional note: My CTR is stock and I use a low profile jack to use this stand, so if your car is lowered by 1”, this stand might not work for your vehicle.

Nothing big, just found that the 2020 JDM FK7 has a small change on the map light lens, that looks like a projected lens to me, not sure what change it would make though......
a guy in Japan did the swap on his FK8
https://minkara.carview.co.jp/userid/3158166/car/2887954/10368545/parts.aspx

On the other hand, probably only I care about this here lol looks like the law related to fuel efficiency may have changed a little bit in Japan, or maybe the 2020 model is not as fuel efficient as previous years, the fuel efficiency sticker (the green one) has changed in the 2020 model:
2020 model: https://www.honda.co.jp/CIVICHATCHBACK/webcatalog/performance/ecology/
2020 model spec sheet: https://www.honda.co.jp/CIVICHATCHBACK/common/pdf/civichatchback_spec_list.pdf
Pre 2020 model: https://www.honda.co.jp/auto-archive/civic/5door/2019/webcatalog/performance/ecology/
Pre 2020 model spec sheet: https://www.honda.co.jp/auto-archive/civic/5door/2019/common/pdf/civichatchback_spec_list.pdf

How the fuel efficiency graded in Japan: https://www.mlit.go.jp/common/001178374.pdf

From the spec sheets, we can see the FK7 is about 1320-1350 kg, which should fit in the 8th row in the grading document.
the Pre 2020 model has the grade of standard +10%, meaning it achieved 17.4 km/l, while the 2020 model only meet the standard, meaning it only achieved 15.8 km/l


Then after all these observations, I finally see it says right on the top of the ecology pages, 16.4 km/l (WLTC mode in 2020) vs 18km/l (JC08 mode pre 2020), I guess they've changed their way to test.

Got to post this old picture while talking about this (I know it's kinda nonsense to put it on, as I've observed that removing this sticker is actually one of those first mods that real Japanese would do lol but I guess my definition of being "JDM" is a bit different :p )

Now that I look closer, I actually got the green sticker wrong:banghead: Mine's Heisei 22nd year, but the standard should be Heisei 27th year, o well

I hear the bypass on my stock Si, and it seems intakes just allow for more of that noise. It seems the PRL Cobra allows for more sound; just wondering how the Mishimoto compares. I know about how BOVs affect our cars. Good looking out, though!
