When we say "best", we're throwing cost out the window. Inevitably, many of the best mods usually cost more money. So this isn't about how much something costs, this is all about smiles per gallon and pure driving satisfaction. Welcome to the best mods list. Buckle up.Read More
It's easy to see how you can sink paycheck sized amounts into your 10th gen Civic, no matter what size your paycheck is. If you've ever modified any car, this is not news to you. Although the sky is the limit for how much you can spend on yours, reality eventually sinks in and you settle for spending a more reasonable amount of money, at least one hopes. If you're looking to spend a "reasonable" amount of money on your new Civic, here are some ideas for you to go have some fun without breaking the bank. We'll stick with our own philosophy here and recommend things that actually make the car perform or feel better, as opposed to some mods which leave you questioning what the hell you bought that for.Read More
Before we bought our 10th Gen 2017 Honda Civic Si coupe, we didn't quite know what we wanted to do in the way of tuning. To be honest, we went to the forums to see what people were saying about the different platforms. We decided on KTuner and so far, we're happy with what we've been able to do with the car through this stock ECU tuning software.Read More
After enthusiasts began modifying the 2016 and newer 10th Gen Honda Civic models, it was pretty apparent that Honda didn't equip the 6 speed manual transmissions with a clutch that could hold much more than stock power and torque levels, at least in the 1.5T engine. Even for us with our 10th Gen Civic Si project car, we only reached the point of putting on a turboback exhaust, intake, and a custom ECU tune with our KTuner V2 before we were forced to replace the clutch if we wanted to move forward with the build since it was starting to slip. At that time, ACT hadn't released their clutch yet but now that it's available and we're going to try to get you up to speed on what their kits include and some basic info that'll help you decide which ACT kit is right for you and your 10th Gen.Read More
Up to this point, we've put on an aFe Turboback Exhaust, AEM Intake, and created a custom calibration through our KTuner device. The car is running great and has significantly improved in both power and torque, over stock. We're currently using 91 octane pump gas only. However, we've seen evidence that a better intercooler would help us out a lot. So the Mishimoto core was called to duty.Read More
We've been seeing that many of the 1.5T 10th gen Civics out there experienced the stock clutch slipping and not being able to hold much more power than stock. We were curious when our 10th gen Civic clutch would give out and it came sooner than we hoped. After a turboback exhaust, intake, and some tuning, 4th gear started to spin the clutch and it just couldn't handle the power. In order to continue forward with our project and keep adding more power and torque, the only option we had was putting a new clutch in.Read More
