  1. Engine, Engine Swaps, Pulleys, Injectors
    hi guys i read quite a bit that it is not worth swapping r18 to k20/24 on a civic non SI. The problem is that I live in Argentina, so the civic fb6 are not available, (i have the civic lxs sedan). Does anyone know if it is possible to do the swap to transform it into the closest thing to a SI...
  2. Forced Induction And Nitrous
    I’m hoping that with 9th gen civic being mainstream for a while, there are streamlined turbo kits and tuning options. What are they? What problems have occurred with your own R18 turbo civics? Avoidable? Inevitable? I just paid off the civic, was going to upgrade the car, but figured I’d have...
  3. Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    So my 2012 Civic LX 5 Speed has been making this noise I just put a whole new clutch kit in. anyone know what it is or have any leads I have a link to a video of the noise please watch and give your input! Any help would be greatly appreciated! If you want anymore videos of certain things to try...
  4. Exhausts and Downpipes
    Working on getting a custom exhaust rolling for my 2015 Honda Civic coupe r18. I like the borla spitfire exhaust. I'm getting that and a Megan racing down pipe probably, don't know much about resonators.. k don't want droning to occur, looking for a nice deep tone. Any recommendations?
  5. Build Section
    Hello all, I decided to undertake the task of boosting a 2013 Honda Civic EX R18 (Auto Non-CVT) daily driver. I drive ~80 miles daily and wanted to add a bit more power to this great engine. After speaking to their sales/engineer staff in regards to fitment to the 9th gen R18s, I'll be going...
  6. (Non-Si)
    Been thinking about getting the Takeda SRI for a while but haven’t pulled the trigger. Any R18 owners have this and want to give their thoughts? I know this won’t increase much power but I do know it’ll give a deeper sound and increase throttle response(hopefully). I’d be getting this without a...
  7. Drivetrain Problems
    Admins please move if not in correction thread. As title says, I'm facing my 2nd A/T rebuild at only 150k miles. I baby this car, all required maintenance and honda fluids and recommended times. At 90k miles my dealership had to rebuild it(luckily under warranty), but now 60k miles later I'm...
  8. Forced Induction And Nitrous
    Despite the majority of the threads on this site suggesting against it, I happened to stumble on a really good deal on a Jackson Racing Supercharger Kit off an 8th gen R18 a little over a year ago and couldn't resist but have it retrofitted onto my car. Long story short it resulted in a car that...
  9. ECU Tuning
    Hey guys, I have installed a P2R TBS, Injen CAI, and Takeda axleback exhaust on my 2012 r18 MT. Last thing I want to do is get a hondata flash pro and do a dyno tune, how much will this run me, and what numbers should I expect to get? Was looking into getting headers before the tune, but a lot...
  10. (Non-Si)
    Just like the title says which you guys prefer? I'm having a difficult time deciding between the two. Which gives a much more aggressive sound? Which would be louder? (I read that the HFP is louder) Any pros and cons on either one? Thanks.
  11. (Non-Si)
    Hi all, I have a 2014 R18 coupe. I've been banging my head against the wall when it comes to the exhaust. Tsudo made a catback, that's now gone and won't be back anytime soon. Yonaka makes a good one for you sedan owners. aFe Takeda and Borla are good direct-replacement bolt-on axlebacks. Megan...
  12. New Member Introductions
    Hello 9th Gen members. I am new here and wanted to say hello. I just picked up a 2012 civic ex coupe with a 5 spd manual in black. Before this purchase I was riding a Honda CBR F4i as a daily driver. This is actually the first Honda car I have owned and I love it. I don't plan on doing anything...
  13. ECU Tuning
    Many people asked, and finally Hondata has responded with the release of the FlashPro for 2012+ R18 Civics! :Banane08:As of right now, technically you cannot use the FlashPro until Dec 8th, when FlashPro Manager will be updated to reflect the necessary changes. Also, 2014 R18 Civics are not...

    Wassap guys new here, my names Kea I'm from Hawaii. My current DD is a beautiful 2012 lx sedan CPB MT and I love her!. So far got her on ksport springs 2'' all around, removed intake resonator and a few minor mods here and there but I'm looking to finally do some real body mods and my budget is...
  15. Downpipes and Exhausts
    I've been running my R18 with no muffler recently and think it sounds amazing so I thought I'd get a sound clip for you guys. Very deep tone. Absolutely none of that high pitched raspy sound. A bit of drone but It doesn't bother me. Subtle bliss of backfire rumble when letting off between 2.5k...
  16. (Non-Si)
    Hey guys im wondering if the Cold Air Intake system works with our 2014s? Specifically talking about R18s (Lx Manual). I Should assume they are exactly the same tech- On paper the only thing that looks different is the 2014 sedan has +3hp then the 2013 sedan. - However i have read our ECUs can...
  17. (Non-Si)

  18. New Member Introductions
    Hey so I've been on the site for awhile, but never introduced myself. I found this website while looking up ways to mod my Crystal Black '13 Lx (MT). I saw the thread for the tuner and made an account to sign it. I got #15. Even though I've been here n got my civic the same time I joined I...
  19. Appearance and Body Modifications
    Hello all, I have a 2013 sedan R18, I know it isn't meant for racing but, I want to make mods to it. I don't want to look like a little schoolboy with a suped non-SI civic. The mods I want are to look classy, elegant yet still sporty looking. I was thinking about changing the exhaust tip, since...

Im looking into what options i have for an engine swap or what i can do to my motor to get it around 250HP reliably as a daily driver. Trying to find out as much about the swap/rebuild as possible because i plan...
