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
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.Read More
Our 10th Gen Honda Civic Si has been a riot so far and with the addition of a new intake system from AEM, we're excited to keep squeezing out every ounce of power that we can from the stock turbo. A turbo requires a lot of flow to work efficiently and, in theory, removing the factory paper filter and airbox should give us noticeable increases in power and torque. How much is something we had to find out for ourselves on our dyno.Read More
With our newfound power courtesy of the aFe Power exhaust system, we were very excited to finish the exhaust part of the project with the downpipe and the midpipe. We knew this would really let the turbo breathe much more than the stock system and give us a great sound, as well. All of our wishes came true.Read More
This has got to be one of the best mods for the money, if not THE best. Rear motor mount upgrades are not uncommon on front wheel drive cars. But for the price and effectiveness of a product like this, it is literally a NO BRAINER. Did I mention it takes about 15-20 minutes to install?Read More
With Project FC3 fully under way with new suspension and custom ECU tuning, we wanted to start the bolt-ons with an exhaust system. After tuning, the exhaust is the second piece of the power puzzle we’re putting together. I’ve seen a lot of people talk about how exhaust isn’t that important or that it doesn’t gain very much power. I often don’t get a chance to prove this isn’t the case but this is one of those times.Read More
