Nobody cares anymore. Here's a video about a high HP L15B7. Sounds pretty good to me, seems to run pretty well too.

I don't think anyone has said the 1.5T could match the 2.0T with mods. I think the question is, for someone happy with close to stockish power, do those differences matter? Not everyone needs 400WHP-...

Maybe if you are looking for huge boost all the time. My stock Optima SX has got me where I need to go at a decent clip through this NC summer

Depends what you are looking for I guess. 400WHP is not of much use on the street and 400FWHP sounds miserable. I'm a bit surprised someone who drives an N/A FA5 is so power obsessed as well.

I feel like peak 10th gen Civic might be one with the 1.5T + CVT. Keeps you in the power band and will run 13s with a KTuned Stage 2 reflash and nothing else. The Civic has gone to another...

Not a bike, my G37. I did do a track day on my bike, and that went great. I'm done riding though, that was my last time on the bike.

Scott can be a little.... insistent :D I wouldn't take it personally.

The 1.5T still gives me pause, especially with the 20 or whatever PSI of boost it's making. Honda got ~190HP out of a 1.6L with...

Honda could easily have afforded to put the 2.0T in as well. A real missed opportunity.

I was hoping the new Insight would use the 1.5T as the gas engine too. Weird decisions.

I'll just say we're working on it. No insurance fraud

They do offer policies at the track. If I weren't such an idiot I would have bought one.

I think someone should develop a full chassis rigidity package for the CB. Chassis design has come a long way in 30 years. Just kind of a bummer it's sooooooooo heavy.
