Baseline Dyno Testing Our 11th Gen Honda Civic Si

Baseline Dyno Testing Our 11th Gen Honda Civic Si

Patrick Linn

Right off the bat, we can see that the 11th Gen is making considerably more peak horsepower. At peak horsepower, we are seeing a maximum difference of 19WHP and 20WTQ. This is due to Honda’s utilization of a twin scroll turbo (this term can be used loosely, we'll discuss this at a later date), dual port head, and the current generation having VTEC on the intake and exhaust side, which allows the head to flow much better at high rpm. This is also demonstrated by the horsepower and torque bump at peak boost, around 4200 RPM, whereas the 10th Gen torque curve begins to dramatically fall off as RPM increases.
