    Anyone have this in their car? Just installed it in mine and it gives a pretty nice boost in HP & TQ. You can definitely feel it. It also sounds great... :thumbsup:

    I posted a picture of it. I'll take some more pics tomorrow, the weather is going to be nice. I'm not going to be running a dyno. I don't know any shops in my town that would have one, haha.

    When I get the Hondata FlashPro, I'll probably do a dyno, but that's this summer.

    I like the refreshed 2013 sedan, especially with the revised taillights, but I would have to go junkyard diving or scour eBay for the head assembly off the 2007-2011 models. The increase in low-end torque is a welcome change but taking out the variable valve timing on the exhaust valves really took the spunk out of this new engine at high RPMs.

    The torque and horsepower has increased on the 9th generation Si's. The 8th gen is notorious for their high-revving engines. I believe the 8th generation Si's have a 9000 RPM red line (8600 reachable). The 9th generation is 1,000 less... Not a huge difference, but definitely noticeable. I like my 9th gen, it has a lot of nice features and looks great.

    I spoke with VitViper about getting their FlashPro + ultimate tune package. I'll probably get that as soon as the FlashPro is updated for the '13 Si which will help a lot with the performance.

    Newest Civic Si goes with K24 engine, dunno why they did away with K20, it's basically a TSX coupe/sedan lol.

    yep, K24Z7. I'm waiting to see if someone will swap in the Earth Dream engine from the new Accord Sport, but that may not be easy as the engine is flipped around with the header facing the front...again like the old B/H series.

    Ya when Honda goes back to a double wishbone suspension up front, let me know and I'll pick one up.

    Not a problem, I'll add that to the list along with a K20Z3 equipped CR-Z. ;)
