Should you get an intercooler for your 10th Gen Honda Civic?

By: JP Alonso / March 10th, 2022

With any turbocharged car, you have to cool down the air after it gets compressed in the turbo and before it reaches the engine. With very few exceptions, the majority of turbocharged vehicles, including the 10th Gen Civic 1.5T and Type R models, use an air-to-air intercooler to get the job done. Intercooler placement is important so it receives a cooler sample of air to transfer the heat to: Both Civic models use a front mounted intercooler, which is ideal. So why would you need to upgrade and what do you gain from it? 4 Great Reasons to Buy an Intercooler For Your 10th Gen Turbo Civic

4 Things I Love About the KTuner V2

4 Things I Love About the KTuner V2

By: JP Alonso / January 31st, 2020

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.

ACT Clutch Kits Released for 10th Gen Civic 1.5T and Type R

By: JP Alonso / January 21st, 2020

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.

Project FC3 Cools Down with a New Intercooler

Project FC3 Cools Down with a New Intercooler

By: JP Alonso / December 2nd, 2019

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.

Our 10th Gen Civic Needs a Clutch | Project FC3

By: JP Alonso / November 20th, 2019

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.

Project FC3 Gets a Little Stiffer

By: JP Alonso / November 13th, 2019

It was actually weird how well the 10th Gen Civic Si coupe handled when I test drove one before we bought it. I guess I just wasn't expecting it to feel that good. But like any factory car, it's not perfect. There is almost always aftermarket equipment that you can bolt-on and setup to make it perform even better. Whiteline provides us a much nicer set of suspension accessories to get that done on Project FC3, our 10th gen Civic Si. We went ahead and started with the Whiteline rear sway bar, rear end links, and front end links.
