    That may be the be the case. But my comment still stands. All but but the rmm are designed to reduce chassis flex.

    I have done the Type R subframe brace and Rear sway bar. Made a noticeable difference on the track. Less body roll and a little more oversteer. I have a Type R RMM I want to install, which will hopefully help with wheel hop/traction. I know it won't be a huge difference, but I do not want a ton of vibration.

    2016 sedan. Has the holes with the threads. Bolts up no problem. Here’s a couple views.

    Thanks for the confirmation! Already bought the brace months ago. Just never got around to installing it. Now I can turn the family sedan into a Type R slayer! ;)

    That's very odd, IIRC the one it didn't fit was a sport sedan. I'll have to find the old thread.

    Good to know, thank you. When you do replace the stock Eagles, you may want to pony up for the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires. I did and noticed a huge difference in grip, which was already pretty strong. Also wet traction was much, much better as well. Of course if it snows in OK you're out of luck, or drops below freezing...
    ...not a common occurrence here in this part of AZ.

    Thanks for the advice! These stock tires don't compliment this car very well, and in the rain they make the car scary to drive. Good to know the PS 4S are something to look at.

    I do worry about the 25ish days a year we get below freezing. Ice storms aren't uncommon either. I really think i need to get a set of summer wheels wrapped with the PS 4S and get the stock ones wrapped in a good all season like the as3. Just gotta save while i wear down this stock rubber:drive:

    Unless you know a decent summer tire that wont kill me around 32 degrees lol

    The key to improved handling and starting:
    -CTR RMM
    -CTR subframe brace
    -Front strut bar, whatever the brand
    -Lighter rims equipped with PS 4
    The difference is very appreciable.

    I thought about those, I had those in all seasons but since I'm now in FL I don't need all seasons. I went with the Nitto INVO's, lot cheaper and softer tire, grip is amazing but they're only good for like 25k miles, they do awesome in the rain as well and are very quiet

    Looks like it was an EX that didn't have the threads. I assumed based on that it was only the Si's and hatchbacks that had them, but now it appears more complicated.

    I think the 1.5 engine sub frame is the common denominator

    There are multiple empty hole in the subframe. Its easy to miss the right ones. I have a hard time believing there is one model of civic with a subframe that has a different manufacturing process. Why would they go through the trouble of not putting threads on just the EX? Not saying you are wrong. Just doesnt seem logical to me
