GPP x Evasive Motorsports' 10th-Gen. Civic Meet

GReddy and Evasive team up to celebrate the latest in Honda's long-running Civic family

Just a few short years ago, bringing up the topic of Honda's long-awaited FK8 Civic Type R brought with it as much hatred and absolute disdain as it did genuine excitement. The long lead that resulted in teaser after teaser didn't do the CTR any favors in the enthusiast world. Add to that an announcement the long-running Civic Si would arrive at local dealerships (sans a hatchback model) sporting a displacement number far smaller than its predecessor and the keyboard fury only increased.

That was then, and today, even through the constant dealership mark up mentions, the constant online reminders that "this car is faster" and "that car is AWD," the Civic is selling, and selling big. Along with the positive reviews and of course that record-breaking lap that was run across the pond and had everyone talking, the CTR has finally earned the respect it was in search of. To that end, the Civic Si, which had quietly moved into the conversation with its little turbo 1.5L, received some help from the aftermarket and has started to grab attention as well.

While the rest of the world was arguing back and forth, tossing around bench racing numbers and giving long-winded speeches about how they think Honda is doing things wrong, groups like GReddy Performance Products and Evasive Motorsports were too busy developing and testing parts for the 10th-generation Civic family. GReddy attacked the performance side of things with exhaust systems, intercooler kits, and more recently, a complete oil cooler kit, along with a front lip option for the Si model.

Evasive Motorsports saw some areas of improvement with the FK8's aero and got right to work offering a slew of upgrades before also including a roll bar option under their EVS Tuning banner. The two groups have worked together on countless projects and R&D in the past, so it made perfect sense for them to join forces for a 10th gen. Civic Meet at GReddy's Irvine, Calif. office.

The parking lot at GReddy isn't huge, and in fact, only allows for a handful of cars. Knowing this, the staff at Evasive pre-registered vehicles that consisted mostly of FK8s and thanks to the gracious neighboring businesses, visitor and street parking were just a few feet away. GReddy and a Remark parts display were set up inside the R&D garage, along with a few tables full of GReddy and Boost Brigade gear, and just outside the garage sat the food vendor. In the center of the parking area was Evasive's booth and demo car.

The 10th gen. Civic crowd is a mixed bunch comprised of newcomers to the Honda community as well as long-term builders that certainly know their way around previous generation Civics. Spending an afternoon amongst the crowd, you could hear ideas and product mentions flying back and forth, and it's obvious this new group of enthusiast is hungry for more options in power, handling, braking, and aesthetic upgrades. Fortunately, companies like GReddy and Evasive Motorsports jumped on the new chassis early and helped get the ball rolling and we're excited to see what's next.

Inside the R&D area of GReddy's Irvine facility we were met with various product displays. This one featured the GPP front lip spoiler designed for the '17-and-up Civic Si coupe and sedan. We got a look at this lip at SEMA and again when we featured GReddy's Si this summer. Available in FRP and carbon fiber, it's a perfect fit.

Also from EVS, this 4-point roll bar is TIG welded and features an X-bar main hoop with gussets for added strength. The harness bar allows for a proper mount option and because it was meticulously designed, the rear bars don't require you to cut any of the FK8's interior plastics. A rear seat delete is also available through Evasive.

The controversial and often hotly debated bodylines of the modern Civic Type R in this case are slightly toned down with a matte vinyl wrap.

The Remark line of exhaust components, which includes a number of different applications for various makes and models, displayed a few Civic Type R options. The Spec -III utilizes a triple muffler setup that's similar to the OEM look but using larger 16 gauge, T304 stainless steel, and pronounced exhaust tips. The Spec-I is based on a single muffler design.
