    RRCoupe The Year of Boost?

    Here's my 2012 R18 5speed Civic. I love this car so far I've been focusing on handling I've upgraded the sway bar end links front and rear with white line (really helps out) lowered on Eibach sport lines and just put on a Tanabe strut bar that I bought on here. I'm also planning on going boost 2018! Just bought a rev9 turbo I was really impressed with it out the box the quality isn't too bad. Well I plan to include all the parts I end up getting later on in my build here's some pics of my progress over the last year.

    Still debating if I should spend the extra money now for 850cc injectors and e85, or run some OEM RDX injectors on 91. My goals for 91 would be 230 to wheels or e85 250.

    Just got my ebay manifold and Rev 9 waste gate.

    Are you planning on daily driving this beast? Somebody feel free to correct me, but I hear e85 gives shit for mpgs, tho it does allow you to make more power.

    So does driving with your foot to the floor board. Can't comment on the e85 mpg but when going the performance route, one will always encounter a trade off. Whether it be mpg, noise, smell, sound, performance or safety. There are bound to be some trade offs.

    Correct, but if it was my daily, which its not, i'd need as many mpgs I can get with a turbo cuz i'm gonna be in it all the time making woosh noises. That's why I asked. Non daily hell yea make as much power as possible. I gotta drive this beast everyday, I need as much mpgs as I can get.

    I'm going e85 because of the performance not mpg. Also I have an r18 that averages around 25-26 your Si gets around 18-20? So considering around a 30% loss of mpg with me switching to e85 I should get around 18mpg which would be pretty good if you ask me.

    And yes this will be my daily if it behaves it self and doesn't act up lol.

    I hear ya man! My fear is wanting to hear the woosh noises all the time! Haha. Gas runs where much easier back in the day. Totally kidding, I was too scared to ever steal anything!

    You are right though, e85 will reduce MPG's. Well for the most part.

    I'm at a modest 23mpg, not bad if your ask me. Especially because I have a heavy foot sometimes.

    If you are certain on going e85 I'd get the 850cc injectors. Remember e85 requires more fuel to achieve the same power with regular gas.

    I'm also not to concerned about MPG, I only live once so I say let the VTEC roar. A life lived with minimal vtec engagement is a life not well lived. Haha all philosophical and crap.
