Amazing that a nearly ten year old engine design is still being used in a top of the line model no less

That large opening in the front needs to be filled with a inter-cooler! TURBO that beast. Please Honda!

i was really tossed up between the TSX and 3.8 Gen Coupe... I chose the cheaper alternative :) I like my city 30mpg. On the gen coupe forum it seems, almost 90% of them go back into the dealer for some sort of repair... thats pretty bad, even for the first generation. popping interior panels, quarter panel fitment, hood alignment & etc etc etc.. Not having a hyundai dealership in SE AK.. I chose something that is serviceable XD Very beautiful & zippy car. and a decent ZF auto tranny too XD

Look at the current corolla..now look at the 2012 sedan civic...now back to the corolla...annd back to the civic.

Looks like Honda is copying Kia's copying methods.

That's interesting. Acura will likely then phase out the K24 in the current generation TSX in order to differentiate the model from the Si sedan when it comes to its powerplant.

I've posted this Photoshop elsewhere, but the new generation Si doesn't look that bad with a drop and wheels. I'm sure Honda will release a decent looking HFP kit as well.

youre very late on this as its been discussed on the automotive section for a while now, and i hate the fact that they dropped the TSX motor into the new Civic SI. they shouldve just throw an H22 in it instead, leave the K24 to where it belongs..

also, from motor trend, they did mention that the header and exhaust setup is one whole system, you no longer have Header/Exhaust... you have an Exheader

So across the various generations, the Honda Civic Si goes from a 1.6L, to a 2.0L, to a 2.4L. Doesn't make sense to me. Especially given the fact that over the years gas prices have reached almost astonishing levels. It should be the opposite, no?

If you go to honda.com and chose 2012 civic coupe, you will be able to see new HFP kit for it.

here's the link: Build and Price a Honda - the Official Honda Web Site
I take my comment back. Side skirts are somewhat standard. The front and rear "skirts" are too reminiscent of the previous generation Toyota Corolla 'S' with those ugly corner flares or whatever you want to call them.

Well, fuel economy is actually better (both city and highway) with the K24Z7. It's rated at 31 mpg highway (US). Pretty darn good.
