    The first gen Fits had the same timing difference but you needed to tune the fuel trims to see better gains. I dont know about the second gen but some one with a gauge said he noticed a difference that was Similar to Gen 8 Civic.

    On a more serious note, my Fit stays pegged at 15.5 timing advance while going WOT on 92 octane vs 11-13 timing advance on 87 octane at WOT. No way to move the advance up as of yet.

    Lol at people thinking they are going to get 155 HP out of the r18. I suppose that's at the wheels too... because FP, muffler tip, CAI and TB spacer magically generate like 50 HP.

    I solved the power problem with my R18 by trading it in for an Si. Much better now.

    agreed, it takes care of wanting to tune a R18, that much for sure.

    I campaigned like hell on here for a R18 Flashpro, I was pissed because there was no tune for the R18, When Vit posted it would be a waste, I yelled back, Sorry Vit, I was wrong for that, But i wanted a tuner for the R18, I thought that i just knew with a tuner, My R18 would have nice gains in HP and TQ, Then Hondata made it, I waited for some one to try it out, they did, It pulled 10 more ponies out of the R18, I was still in denial, I was devastated, I was acting crazy, Until i took a deep breath, relaxed, and realized, As awesome as the R18 engine is, It has an econ button for a reason, It never liked revving much above 4.5K rpms. the engine sounded upset at 6K rpms, very upset, and not in a good way. That is when i came to terms with the fact that the R18, which is a fantastic engine, was not a track performer, nor a strip runner, But with that said, I enjoyed that engine, 35.4 MPG, and the car was fun to drive.

    My Si is so totally different than my R18 5MT EX was, Night and day, My stock 13 Si is not a track car, or strip car either, It is fun to go through gears maxing out i-Vtec, But it is not a racer by any means, but it is a lot of fun, gets 28MPG and can rev 6k all day without a hiccup.

    I contemplated keeping the R18, but I also saw that to make any power you basically had to dedicate your entire life and sacrifice your first born. Wasn't about that life, so I picked up a '12 Si. Couldn't be happier with my choice, aside from minor things from driving it too and from work on a sh*t road everyday it's been an awesome car and when I want to get into it it'll take it with no problems. I'll be keeping this car for a while, or, at least until I see what the Type-R is all about.

    tbh, no idea what "r18" was until i read this thread and figured it out based on the context of Vit's comment. definitely laughed a good amount throughout this thread, some good info and some interesting perspectives.

    polishing a turd just means you have a shiny turd. save your money and put it towards your house or future "sports" car. i wish i could have told my 20-yr old self this.
