We're Back

Many of you might recognize our name from our products available for the 8th and 9th Gen Civic community. We are just as excited as the rest of Honda community for the release of the 10th Gen Civic. We will be picking up a new Si and Type-R the moment they are available with plans of a full product line for the two.

Stay tuned

What kind of stuff will you guys come out with? The full gambit?

Would be cool if you could document the development process too to show us how it goes from concept to completed product.

Great to have you here.

We called our local dealership which we deal regularly with a few months back about release date of the 2016 Si. They were unsure of the exact date, but we were told it would be by the end of 2015. We had them put us down for a car out of the first batch of Si's, as well as put us on the list for one of the first batch Type-R's. As soon as these models are available, we will have them in our hands and start developing.

It is hard to say for sure what products we will release until we see what we are working with, but we'd like to stay on the performance side of things. We will probably stay within the lines of past Civic product lines like intakes, manifold/throttle body modifications, turbo kits, etc.

The single port head looks nice to work with again, we may have a few tricks up our sleeve for that!

As for documenting the development process, absolutely! We tried this a bit in the past, but we lacked employees and time to do so. Now that our company has grown over the years, we hired somebody specifically to take care of forums and social media to ensure all of our customers are up to date.

This is great to hear. I am looking forward to seeing what you guys get up to. Most of the time we see the products in the end, but not the process behind them. Will be looking forward to both the development and the end result. Now you are just waiting around like the rest of us for the new Civic.

Being a high volume product that's getting revamped, that is something i bet we will get a look at, motivations for them doing it are higher than before from how I see it.

As an enthusuiast i'd love to see some detailed stuff about the Type R.

As a consumer, I've always enjoyed seeing the development process. Maybe it's the nerd in me, but it fascinates me and I feel better educates the general public when choosing a product.

We will get the ball rolling whenever the new Civic is released!

I've always been the same way and even for someone who isn't into all that technical nerdy stuff, it still helps to see what goes behind creating the product you have which can help in appreciating it more and really gauging how good it is in comparison to the rest in the industry.

I sincerely hope we get a decent suspension offering this time around for Honda. The current kits for the 8th and 9th gen aren't horrible. But hoping that with the emergence of the Type R; companies like KW, Koni and Bilstein extend their product range to the base lineup (or at least the Si).

This platform is going to bring a host of new options (and headaches) with forced induction. We'll likely see better response from basic breathing mods and, in time, reputable tuning.
