2010 Honda Civic BTCC

March 23rd, 2010 No comments

Honda (UK) and Team Dynamics Motorsport have announced the Honda Racing Team driver line-up for its assault on the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Two time BTCC champion Matt Neal will once again be partnered by Gordon “Flash” Shedden – a reunion of the drivers who last competed together for Honda in 2007. This year’s racing Civics will wear Championship White paint, Honda’s traditional racing colour and that of the new Civic Type R MUGEN 200 cars.

Steve Neal, Team Dynamics Team Principal, said: “Team Dynamics and Honda have a huge heritage, it’s the brand that we won two championships back to back with and it’s great to get the support of Honda (UK) which is backing a car that’s built in Britain.”

Touring Car fans will also have the chance to win a one-off Civic Type R MUGEN Concept car in a competition that will be running in participating Honda dealerships, at each BTCC round and on from the start of the season.

Honda (UK) will be hosting special ‘Question of Motorsport Live’ events at Honda dealer showrooms near to each of the BTCC rounds on the Saturday evenings after qualifying. Tim Harvey will again be host, keeping charge of the two captains, Matt and Flash. The competition promises to be as fierce off the track as well as on, with the two drivers competing against each other in this fun test of their motorsport knowledge. For details of these events, visit from the 1 April.
The Honda Racing Team is also pleased to announce support of Yuasa, a world leader in battery design and manufacture and number one in the UK for aftermarket automotive and motorcycle batteries and industrial batteries.

Both Honda (UK) and Team Dynamics look forward to meeting motor racing fans throughout this BTCC season, starting at Thruxton on Sunday, 4 April.

February 21st, 2010 1 comment

TD Autowerkes has created a beast – a 1114 horsepower and 765 torque turbo K Series Honda Civic EK @ 45 lbs of boost. I don’t have info on the exact setup of the motor, but it’s a K24 with supposedly a stock flow head – this car is going to haul some ass.

Apparently this car runs E85 methanol, a GTX42R turbo, Competition Clutch Twin Disc, and a ERL block.

This car has run a best of 9.27 @ 163.59 in previous trim.

If anyone has any more info on this car, please let us know. Here is a video of one of the dyno runs:

New Honda Civic AccessPORT Maps Eliminate Rev-Hang

January 9th, 2010 1 comment


COBB Tuning has released an update that completely eliminates the rev-hang issues that the Honda Civic Si exhibits. Rev-hang presents itself during gearshift events. When the clutch is depressed and the throttle is closed, drivers can see that the engine rpm stays constant for a period of time, not dropping even though the driver has completely lifted off the throttle pedal. This is how Honda tuned the 2006-2009 Civic Si and is considered normal behavior from the factory.

This AccessPORT update completely eliminates this rev-hang phenomenon. Engine RPM drops immediately when the clutch is depressed and throttle is closed. The vehicle responds much more like it has a cable controlled throttle plate.

If you are running a customized map, you can convert your map to eliminate rev-hang using the Honda Map Conversion Tool. Instructions and conversion tool download links can be found on the Honda Map Conversion Tool Page. Follow the instructions listed on the page.

Other AccessPORT development efforts are progressing well. We are continuing to work hard to bring the best tuning solution available for Honda tuning enthusiasts.

AEM Cold Air Intake System Increases Horsepower of 2009 Honda Civic Si

December 1st, 2009 No comments

The 2009 Honda Civic Si is a sporty compact car with remarkable style and comfort. Equipped with a high-output 2.0 liter engine, sport-tuned suspension, stability control and roomy interior, the ’09 Civic Si is half racecar and half family car. If that isn’t enough to intrigue you, the impressive gas mileage, kickin’ sound system with steering wheel controls, race-style seating and large trunk make this car a very fun and practical daily driver.

One downfall with the 2009 Civic Si engine is the lack of power at lower RPM’s. AEM has addressed this issue with the release of their AEM Cold Air Intake System 21-685C. The 21-685C was specially designed to fit into the cramped engine compartment while delivering more horsepower. This is accomplished by using a custom aluminum intake tube that lowers restriction and an AEM air filter that is located away from the engine to provide cooler air to the engine.

AEM intake systems are dyno tuned and tested for specific applications. The 21-685C was dyno tested in March 2009, and showed an increase of 6.27 horsepower at 5100 rpm. This intake system comes with a gunmetal gray intake tube and an oversized AEM DRYFLOW air filter (21-203DK). The 21-203DK is a washable oil-free air filter designed for high air flow and great filtration.

AEM 21-685C cold air intakes come with detailed instructions to assist with the installation of the system. The Dyno Chart and vehicle applications for this intake are available on our website
