This car made right at what we advertise the kit at, +/- 2%. Some cars make more than others, some make less. Some have better exhaust systems on them, some have less miles, more miles bigger tires, heavier wheels, etc. etc.

Chris.

you are right, it does make right around what they are supposed to.. But what im asking is what is with the huge Dip in power? there is something going on there..thats all im saying.. its really wierd to have a massive power dip right at the top of the rpm like that..

They all do it. It has to do with the turbo moving outside of it's efficiency island.

hey Chris, thanks for showing me around, sorry i took off so quick i was running behind schedule

thanks everyone for all the kinda words, the drive back to cali was...
entertaining to say the least.

as far as the lower numbers, chris and i talked about it. the active exhaust may share some of the blame. i'll be doing some indy dynos here shortly w/an oem exhaust and maybe an AP as per chris's suggestion.
and any other suggestions are always welcome.

No problem, its kind of a good thing you did cuz i would have had to just show up in a stock civic (my dd)...i ended up pulling my trans last week to change out 2nd gear synchro, sure enough i was missing 3 teeth off 3rd gear.. how it still drove is beyond me! But its good now, let me know when you are in town again..car looks good!

I think you misunderstood his question...


I really like this install, nice touches on the meth tank with the colors.
I like the rubber bumper/intercooler rubber lip, it looks cool, I'm sure it's aesthetically functional to keeping everything looking good long term
t1r... really... i guess there's no even trying to hook in alaska
