    Was searching YouTube (always a bad thing to do) to help me decide about purchasing Ktuner 1.2 or V2.0 and found this:

    360WHP Civic Si - Take One



    Just watch the speedometer... to think I tried to buy the 2018 Mazda MX-5 before the 2019 Si. The Mazda dealership was jerking me around (they own all the Mazda dealerships in a 200 mile radius) so I went to my second choice the 2019 Si (thank <insert> "supreme entity of choice").

    The possibilities are mind boggling. Just depends on what you really want to do with the car OR not do with the car.

    155 increase in HP? OMG And they didnt even do other mods that I thought should be required for that kind of power -- WHOA!! (inner child coming out)

    Yes, I admit it. I am a noob. (Not to be confused with "I am Groot")

    This particular car put down 465whp with an even larger turbo and methanol injection. Can't wait to see what he does next!

    That’s the one, while impressive too much power for what this car was designed to handle, this car is begging to be bent around a pole at high speed.

    At some point just makes more sense to buy a Type R and start from there.

    Correct plus the Type R has been tested to handle power in this range, I wouldnt feel safe pushing this Si, things can go sideways a lot easier with this car than the Type R

    I watched this video a while back, I also believe he had to upgrade his rocker arms and piston shafts. What this guy did was so completely insane, a normal person would have just bought the Type R. This guy is really into highly modifying, he spent $50K modifying an older NA Civic, you can find that video as well from One Take

    Actually there have been more Rs with bent rods than Si's with less mods. Not to mention all Si replacement parts now and down the road won't be as expensive as anything made for the R, lmao. (go shop exhausts for instance)

    Ha, I've seen people dump more into X Gen civics than they cost initially and still couldn't out handle a CTR.

    Very true, and to re-emphasize the Type R has been designed to handle all the extra power, extensive higher speed R&D, braking, handling, etc. while the Si hasn’t, and I own an Si. Go with the Type R if not for the cost aspect, but even more so for the safety aspect.

    Go with the type r if you prefer hatch over sedans and coupes. I prefer sedans. I almost bought the accord (thought about it for a second lol).

    Tbh, I totalled my 8thgen this last Christmas which prompted me to buy a new vehicle. They had 1 type r available that I was looking at. I thought about it for a while. Financially the type r was pushing it. But the si was well within my range.

    I pulled the trigger on the si.
    1. Way more affordable
    2.for less than half the difference, I could bolt on and tune and be right there or better than a stock type r.

    That was enough for me. So 2019 si sedan it is for me. And I couldn't be happier..
