The year for the SI

Honda really pushed to market the 2006 Civic SI upon release and The automotive press raved (especially in comparison to it’s ho-hum predecessor).  After 3 years, the platform has a solid following but it’s been held back by a lack of engine management.

Thanks to Hondata and Cobb for the newly released products (the FlashPro and Accessport respectively) Civic SI owners can finally get serious with the K20Z3 motor.  2009 should prove to be the year for the new SI!

We recently tuned our own SI with Hondata’s FlashPro with impressive results (especially considering how un-modded the car is).  Engine mods for our SI are limited to a K&N short ram and a set of Unorthodox Racing pulleys.

Post tune, drivability is much improved thanks to the new-found mid-range power. Plus, throttle lag and rev-hang are a thing of the past!

A total of 15 pulls were made during tuning. Peak power is up by about 7hp and 5lb ft. Peak gains are in the mid-range, a solid 15hp and 15lb ft.
