    This is super helpful. I'm not a noob but I still learned a fair amount.

    Question: How much performance is there to be gained by installing a catless DP and full exhaust?

    Very helpful for someone very active in the scene 1998-2008.

    Much has changed in the +10 years since then.

    Thank you for filling in the gaps. I feel like an old timer at 37...:coffee:

    I know your target audience is for those with the 1.5 turbo, but all Civics aren’t GDI, as mentioned in your first point.
    The 2.0 NA still uses port injection. Just throwing it out there for those who don’t know.

    You mention the noise if GDI. Is the seemingly common “cold start rattle” something you guys at 27Won have experienced and is it something to do with GDI? I’ve heard of dealers telling people it is the high pressure fuel pump

    my bad should have been more clear. There is still that NA multi-port. I can only assume that will be GDI in a few years.

    Honestly, this sounds pretty normal. Like the dealer said it could be the pump. GDI is just plain noisy.

    Good to know. I hate that rattling noise... sounds like something is loose just flailing around in the engine.

    so the Facebook video linked didn't work for me, does the GDI sound like Valve Tick?
    Other Questions,
    How does the TPMS on this car work?
    At what point in lowering do you have to invest in an aftermarket camber adjustment setup? Not that I can even lower my car with my driveway but just curious.

    That's the FIRST thing I thought too. But figure it couldn't be since it's a brand new car. I can confirm that what I hear on my 1.5T sounds like valve tick. But if that is this GDI I don't know, as I'm not too familiar with GDI.
