great!!:eusa_dance: hopfully some suspension products from the 8th still fit!Let us know what you are looking for and we'd be happy to help you through the process. We have been diligently looking at what we currently have against the new diagrams to see what fits
Props for your wonderful use of jargon. :eusa_clap:I'm gonna say it, because it's been said so many times on the 8th, ...but shoulda gotten an Si. (as LennyR kinda also said too)
...but yeah, without screwing with your warranty, ...easy bolt-ons like an intake and catback, ...when they come out. I'm sure some of the 8thGen R18 stuff may fit, ...but research before you do. I'll say though, any of these bolt-ons will net you very little gain and probably won't register on your butt-dyno, ...especially if you're coming from Audi A4. Only way to satisfy your need for similar power is to go FI like how your A4 was. Gotta turn apples to oranges if you're gonna compare the two.
Doubtful, TOV is just a bitchfest these days. I doubt you will find anyting useful at TOV. I recommend Honda-tech and this forum.Well, one (albeit expensive) way to do it would be to trade in your EX sedan on an SI sedan when they become available. It seems like that's what you really want.
In terms of mods to the ECU, the engine in the '12 Civic is essentially the same R18 engine used in the '06-'11 Civics, with some tweeking. You are more likely to get advice on mods over at the Temple of VTEC forum, which has quite a few technical articles as well as lots of Honda-fixated gearheads:
