Wait, the 2006 Civic Si only just started appearing in dealerships and you're swapping engines already? You are if you're the self declared kings of Honda swaps-Hasport. Lucky for Hasport, Honda handed out some preproduction Si's to select aftermarket companies prior to the on-sale date. With that e
Heel-Toe, Heel-Toe...I personally love watching all types of racing on T.V., but I can never understand how those racers can wear those flame-retardant suits in such high temperature conditions; makes me feel uncomfortable just watching them. I do, however, like those cool racing shoes they wear. No
If you hadn't yet picked up on it, we're gonna make it clear: Honda's K-series engine is where it all goes from here. Every four-cylinder Honda/Acura in the United States, except the Civic coupe/sedan, has a K underhood. The tuning heads at labs like HyTech Exhaust, Hasport, Skunk2 and Hondata confi
While a vast majority of our readers are Honda Civic drivers, we strive to find solutions for guys that want performance but have a harder time locating aftermarket parts for their car. Let's face it, you could practically build a Civic comprised of all aftermarket parts but let's not forget that th
While most Honda nuts always go for broke with a DOHC engine there are the few that either don't have the money to swap out to a twin cam power plant or just simply choose to make the most of what they were dealt. While our option is to always go with the big guns you can't argue that the 1.6-liter

For a mere $295 (base system), the S200 unit has the ability to modify the speed limiter, offer tunable fuel and ignition tables, expand rpm and ignition tables, adjust VTEC control, and increase rev limitati
When talking about aftermarket products for the street, it's a question of some importance: Is it legal? This month we put together a product guide detailing some of the best "street" products we could find in the import aftermarket. Initially, we wanted to make it a CARB-legal guide, but to tell yo
It was back at the 2002 SEMA show that I met up with Edelbrock representative, and good friend, Rex Urasaki. That's when he walked me to the center of their booth and briefed me on Edelbrock's new EK turbo kit for the 16-valve sohc Civic.
When the first VTEC engine was available in the States, I thought it was so high tech I was scared to touch it. The thought of having two different cam profiles per cam was amazing, I never would have thought it was possible and I figured it must have been some sort of high tech computer that allowe
Extracting huge amounts of power from four-cylinder Honda engines has become somewhat routine for many hardcore Honda enthusiasts. The likes of Papadakis, Lookofsky, Kubo, Callos and Tran have survived the trials and tribulations of record-setting import perfo
The art of fine-tuning an engine computer is viewed as one of the blackest in the aftermarket. Table after table of arcane numbers, weird figures, lambda this, AFR that, boost pressure the other...it's enough to make one's head spin. However, it's also a neces
