  1. help me decide if the 10th gen is the right car for me

    The 10th Generation
    2018 2.0T 6MT 0-60 6.2s [email protected] 2013 2.4 6MT 0-60 6.8s [email protected] 6MT for 6MT the 2.0T is still atleast .5 sec faster everywhere. Trap speed is also significantly 4mph higher which means more acceleration from a roll. The 10AT is still faster than 6MT, probably from both more and...
  2. ktuner thread

    Performance
    ktuner worked on bootcamp when I tried it a couple years ago. Last I checked you can buy a windows 10 key for ~$20 from scdkey.
  3. Issues with using permanent smartfone for Nav and Traffic? Anyone try it?

    Audio, Electronics & Lighting
    I don't know how many degrees that would reduce but regardless I personally would not indefinitely expose myself to the risk of even a small lithium ion fire. When they ignite sometimes they release hydrofluoric acid vapors, which can cause skin, eye and lung damage. It would probably ruin...
  4. One service manager's take on the 10th gen. reliability

    The 10th Generation
    I guess we'll still see about the piston rings for 10th gen. When I was still shopping for my 10th gen, I was unhappy with oil consumption/VTC issues with my 8th gen. Turns out there are piston ring issues across the industry to some degree, atleast Toyota is also affected. The industry trend...
  5. Should I be more careful with how many miles I put on my car?

    The 9th Generation
    It's fake and I'm rather surprised the moderators do this.
  6. 2014 Honda Accord Sport 4 Cylinder Issues

    The 9th Generation
    Given the vehicle mileage, none of these issues are really out of the ordinary. There's no such thing as a car that works like new forever. If you can't do the work yourself, you should get more than one quote for repair costs. Something like the window regulator there is not much good reason...
  7. Any way to speed up throttle response of slow drive by wire for 5 speed manual K24Z3?

    Performance
    I think a new V1.2 is $450 from any online aftermarket store. I've seen used original V1 units selling used in the $300 range. You can even watch the for sale forum here, just make sure the unit is unlocked from the previous car. In terms of performance at the engine, they are the same. All...
  8. Any way to speed up throttle response of slow drive by wire for 5 speed manual K24Z3?

    Performance
    Ktuner is the best thing for this. You can adjust the throttle map and it also actually adds horsepower. It takes just 15 minutes at the car and there are no physical changes. With the DBW table you can see how Honda intentionally tuned the throttle position to save gas. The I4 gets ripped on...
  9. Hondata dynos all CTR intakes

    Performance
    The worst short ram works like a reverse intercooler, literally a hot air intake. Among other things, turbo heats up the engine bay and on these cars it is next to the intake, but turbo engine performance is very sensitive to intake temps. The factory airboxes are sealed off from the engine bay...
  10. Hondata dynos all CTR intakes

    Performance
    I realize this is not an accord, but I can't see much difference. Hondata dynoed all CTR intakes, normalized for coolant temp, hood closed, fans in front of car. Most representative of the real world. Stock intake was the best, haha. Biggest loss was supposedly 17 WHP...
  11. LX Engine Rebuild / Prep for turbo

    Performance
    Bolting a turbo to this engine is easy, you basically just need a double sided flange. The exhaust manifold is integrated into the head and dumps all the exhaust energy out of one port, just like the current civic type R. On older engines the turbo manifold was the hardest piece to build, not...
  12. found no evidence of carbon buildup in Earth Dreams 2.4 but I did not look in the proper place for it

    The 9th Generation
    The jury still seems to be out on this. At least for the Honda turbo engines, there is some evidence of light carbon build up on the 1.5T. 2.0T still too early to tell. At least on the new Honda turbo engines, they have integrated air oil separators in the valve cover. I've read in passing...
  13. Sport 2.0 vs EX-L 2.0 / Touring 2.0

    The 10th Generation
    The 2.0T EX-L with the smaller 17 inch wheels also has slightly better rated gas mileage than 2.0T sport or touring with 19s. The 19s are also more easily damaged so if you live somewhere with bad roads and irregular curbs you might be better off with 17s. Honda's website lists all the trim...
  14. ktuner thread

    Performance
    Some knock might be due to local conditions. CA temps are warmer and fuel quality sometimes not so good. 91 octane is the highest fuel that can is widely available. Funny trivia, the guys running vtec.net suggest not using Shell fuel atleast in CA. My knock control is still well behaved...

  16. My car has a weird misfire going on at idle while pointing uphill.

    The 8th Generation
    You might want to wait and see a bit with the new TLX or any new model Hondas going forward, atleast in regards to tuning. I see more and more reports of Honda attempting to void warranties at any hint of ECU tampering, sometimes even incorrectly or inappropriately. Too many civic 1.5T owners...
  17. Engine Rattles at (cold) Start-Up?

    The 8th Generation
    The warmer and more frequently it happens just means the problem is getting worse. At one point I was getting some bangs or chain slap with the rattle. Oil consumption is not the cause but it is an adverse factor just because as the oil level drops the more likely the rattle will happen. I...
  18. My car has a weird misfire going on at idle while pointing uphill.

    The 8th Generation
    My mechanical/chemical background is not very strong, but it seems like copper and stainless steel might have some galvanic incompatibility since the exhaust system is probably considered a harsh environment. If it were me, I would think about how long I was planning on keeping the car. If you...
  19. My car has a weird misfire going on at idle while pointing uphill.

    The 8th Generation
    Good job, I agree with your findings. Back in the day on other sites, there were also reports of HFPCs basically melting after sustained high speed use. OEMs have computer analytic models when they design engines, they know exactly how hot the exhaust/cats will get and design for it. Not only...
  20. Engine Rattles at (cold) Start-Up?

    The 8th Generation
    VTC rattles don't set the check engine light. I don't think any of the ECU monitors catch it until the problem is really bad. There have been users here that eventually report CEL for timing problems, but by then the timing chain is stretched and also needs to be replaced.
