Excellent idea
Im sure Hondata is working on a tuner for the 1.5T as I've seen some videos from them,It's just a matter of time folks.

FlashPro is absolutely coming for this platform, very very soon!
You going to be doing E-tunes for these too, and is your pricing going to be the same for these engines as you are for the K series?

To those in Ontario Canada, my friends their tell me Teknotik is one of the best Honda/Acura tuning shops to go for this stuff. Those guys even have their own forum.

I'm an old guy .. have a average understanding of the mechanics and tuning of cars. I drove Rams Hemis and the Cummins 6.7l V6 since 2002 bought a Taco in 2015. You can get some more horse out of those with a tuner and maybe air kit and exhaust ..but only a few at best unless spending race car (truck) kind of money. That will also effect mileage ... more horse less mileage.

I guess my question is - what are can you really expect to get out of a 1.5l peanut ? ... even if turbo charged. Not bashing .. again just curious. If I'm looking for speed/sport Id go with at least a 6, most likely an 8. .. but it would be nice if these civics came in a small 6. Would be a rocket !

Ill just say that Vit e-tuned my 8th gen Civic SI with intake, Skunk2 header, and Skunk2 exhaust, and while the butt dyno thought it was faster, overall it drove better and I actually got better gas mileage than i did stock. Im excited to see what he can do with these cars. Im not building a world beater, but if a few bolt-ons and a tune can pump the power up a bit, I personally would be happy with that. Dont forget, 10-15 hp or 10-15 torque gain on these cars would feel significantly quicker than on a larger engine starting with more hp

i dunno...i get the more power aspect...it's a manly thing. however, if 174 or so horses can move a CRV around pretty well, it should **** well move a civic without any problems...and it gets 40+ mpg to boot! with a warranty...

i know there will always be a market for Vit..and others...but, i'm a high mileage driver...and if there were more power in the motor along with reliability, i'm sure the big H would build them that way. i think they find a balance...and let the tuners have their fun in the aftermarket!
