    Holy hell that's some power for a "base model" civic. Nice work.

    Will you be testing the GTX2860R? If so, .64 or .86 A/R?

    Hell yeah Prl! Always coming in on top as always!;) Can’t wait to see what’s achievable with the new set up at the drag strip. :drive: Another solid kit.

    Very interested in this. If the upgrade over the RS is not too pricey, it seems like a no brainier.

    I think it will be significantly more expensive but likely still worth it for some. Regardless, awesome results from the “baseline” turbo option!

    Should be interesting to see. If it's less than a $500 price increase, and it significantly reduces the turbo lag and/or increases the slope of the power curve at the top end, I'd definitely do it.

    All that said, I'm admittedly wondering about our head gaskets. I'd imagine that with our tiny cylinders and the huge increase in air volumes, there might be a potential for problems down the toad from increased cylinder pressure. I'd love to get my hands on this now, but I'll probably wait to see how some of the early adopters do.

    Wonder what the gains would be on 91 octane since that's all I can get around me

    will the base turbo be too much power for the fx350 to handle? @PRL Motorsports

    Get the fx400. And no the 350 should be alright, depends on your set up and how much power you want to put down.

    I'm obviously not PRL, but I will chime in. I think the 350 will be fine, take a look at the torque levels. This turbo gets rid of some of the borderline unwanted high torque ability from our stock turbos and trades it for lots of usable horsepower up top.

    I am guessing that is a cattless downpipe and a catted dp is not available?

    What part of OK are you in? If you have E85 near you, you can mix it to get 93 octane. On an empty tank, put in 2 gallons of E85, and the fill the rest of the way up with 91 100% gas. This will net you roughly 93.3 octane, and about 13% ethanol (we can handle up to about 15% ethanol with no problems).

    You can buy anything else you might want or need separately.
