Honda wrote the rules of sport compact performance, developing fast and agile cars that broke all previous horsepower-per-litre records. The 1990’s and early 2000’s were all about performance compacts and Honda led the charge for an entire generation with vehicles like the CRX, Prelude and, of course, the Civic. Now in its ninth generation, this iconic nameplate continues to be one of the most popular enthusiast platforms the world over. The 2012 Civic Si Coupe, while instantly recognizable from a design perspective, features some significant changes compared to the outgoing model. These include a new interior and updated exterior touches, but the biggest change – and the one that has garnered the most attention – is under the hood. Namely, its larger 2.4-liter DOHC four-cylinder i-VTEC engine. Due in large measure to increased displacement, this mill cranks out 201 hp and gets a whopping 22% more torque than the eighth-gen Si. The better news for the enthusiast is that there’s plenty to be gained beyond that from a tuning perspective. Under the hood, a Full Race turbo kit designed specifically for the 2.4L engine with a Borg Warner EFR 7163 turbo forms the centerpiece of the build. Installed by the experts at Defcon Racing in Thornhill, Ontario, this mod practically doubles the output to over 400 hp!The Si chassis received some notable upgrades too. First, the original suspension already offers a great ride and solid handling, but for the Remix Civic Si Coupe, a set of fully-adjustable HSD coil-overs dramatically lowers the ride height whilst allowing the dampening to be set hard or soft. The OEM wheels have been exchanged for 19×8.5-inch König Avanti alloys, which are held in place with McGard PASMAG laser-engraved tuner lug nuts and wrapped with 235/35 Continental Tires. Wilwood Superlite 6R front brakes featuring six-piston calipers clamp down on 13-inch two-piece slotted rotors.
