Re: 2007 Si sedan prize

If you are going to Turbo and really want some raw power, make sure you get K-pro...I tried to skip this step and I am chasing things left and right....

Re: 2007 Si sedan prize

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but K-Pro allows you to tune your engine to properly deal with the turbo. The stock ECU cannot properly and completely account for it. I don't know a heck of a lot about tuning/engine management, but you can check out their website for info on what exactly it does. Sorry if this wasn't that helpful haha. I tried.

It looks like the '06-'10 civic si uses Flashpro not kpro (still a Hondata product)

here's k-pro

Re: 2007 Si sedan prize

You realize to run 12.5 in an FA5 you'll probably be spending well over $10k

Re: 2007 Si sedan prize

The problem you're going to keep running into is that the Fa5 is so heavy.

A good suspension, slicks and a full race turbo kit would be enough to hit your goals though, I think.

Re: 2007 Si sedan prize

Whatever you want man, it's your car...we just told you everything you have to do for what you want, so do it in the order you want to...just know, without a programmable computer (KPro), you are going to do a lot of this and then you will be back on here asking WTF is wrong with my car?

After reading this, it really sounds like I am being a dick, but I swear I'm not trying too...It's just exactly what happened to me...

don't forget man

Build your suspension and brakes.

All the power in the world is completely useless if you can't control it.
