Hi 9thgen. I just bought my first Honda, though my family has owned at least 10 over the years. I traded my 2009 Ford Mustang Gt for the 2012 Civic dx. I love the space and 4 doors. 34 mpg! So the Honda is my daily driver and my toy is a 2003 Ford SVT Cobra. Currently making 502hp to the wheels.

Does anyone know if the 1.8 is a decent platform to mod? I can't help myself and I would like to get my Dx up to around 200 hp.

You could prob get over 200 if you get a great turbo along with other mods :p

edit: I don't know how much those stock internals can take though so keep that in mind

My only mod is putting some too damned expensive gasoline in it. VOTE the bastards OUT in November.
