The CARBONETIC LSD responds to the demands of the novice or the professional driver seeking the most dependable control when competing in road racing, time attack, drifting competition or a rally event. A vehicle’s kinetic performance is largely determined by the potential of the selected LSD. CARBONETIC release the Carbon LSD and the Metal LSD. Those LSD have different character. You can choose the best one for your vehicle.
EXEDY organic racing clutches only use premium friction materials that are resistant to slippage and burst. Increased clamp loads give the necessary capacity to handle modified engines. This is the preferred clutch for street and light horsepower track use. Drivability is similar to the stock clutch. Pedal efforts will be slightly higher because of the higher clamp loads. All of the Stage 1 clutch discs have spring center dampers to reduce drivetrain shock.
Ultra-Fiber Organic Disc
• EXEDY Exclusive Friction Composition
• High Heat resins bond friction fibers
• Unlike competitors, EXEDY friction material has no need for steel backing to pass SFI burst test
• Maintains drivability of an OE-style disc
• Heavy Duty oil-quench hardened damper
• Heavy Duty rivets retain clutch material
High Performance Cover
• Average of 40% increase in clamp load
• Extra capacity holds common street car upgrades
• Ductile iron pressure plate provides high strength, anti-burst protection in all temperature ranges
• Stamped steel cover designed to reduce deflection
The MONO FLEX coilover kit has been developed for entry-level competition motorsports and advanced street driving. Features include 16-way damping force adjustability (combined compression and rebound), a mono-tube internal design, pillowball upper mounts, and EDFC compatibility. There are independent adjustments for ride-height and spring pre-load settings for increased suspension tuning. The new Mono Flex also includes TEIN’s latest technological innovation, Micro Speed Valving (MSV) system, which allows the driver to feel a greater difference in damping force adjustments. Designed and developed for consumers seeking aggressive handling on the street and at the track.
• Steel Construction
• Mono Tube internal construction
• Inverted design for strut type front and rear
• Ride Height adjustable via threaded body and spring seats
• 16 way adjustable dampers, compression and rebound combined
• M.S.V. Technology for improved damping force adjustability
• Pillow ball upper mounts for increased steering feel
• Upper camber adjustment on front for strut type vehicles
• EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) compatible
• Anodized brackets with Teflon coated shock body for heavy duty rust prevention
Remember this EP3 that was here over the summer for the JDM 5 lug conversion? Well it’s back to complete the other part of the JDM-ness, that’s right, the K20A and all it’s glory.
Preparing of the JDM K20A.
Currently sitting somewhere outback in the dump.

Hasport rear engine mount, again… highly encouraged with the used of a race header.
Buddy club spec 3 exhaust system, sounds just like the old DC5 🙂
Here some literature taken from TODA RACING Co.
Increasing the diameter of the throttle and in combination with a tapered entrance helps to increase the amount of air the engine can breathe, giving improved performance.
Dimensions of throttle valve are 66.5mm up from 64mm for the valve diameter and the tapered entrance starting at a diameter of 70.4mm. All built-in parts are new. No trade-in is required so you get more performance and a new throttle assembly.
The power graph shown above compares a stock throttle with the TODA Big Single Throttle when fitted to the TODA Racing FD2 CIVIC (2150KIT) demo car.
Improvements in performance of up to 7 H.P. have been made.
The FD2 Civic Type-R Intake Manifold (RRC) is the highest flowing intake manifold for K-Series engines. The RRC intake manifolds performance is further increased by being meticulously hand ported by TODA Japan engine technicians. These are not regular production items, and made to order. Delivery times range from 4~6 weeks.
Exedy Stage 1 clutch kit with Exedy lightweight flywheel.
Honda K-series 5.0 final drive kit – Increase your vehicles acceleration by replacing the final drive unit with this genuine OEM Honda K-series 5.062 final drive kit.
Hasport rear mount – Highly suggested for all K-series with aftermarket header, this will reduce any premature wear/damage to the flex pipe.
As it is, the Honda Civic Si (FG2/FA5) is a great car to drive. And like any great platform there is always room for improvements. The golden rule for all real K-series engines is FLOW! Intake, header and exhaust, get some girth going in these departments. The bolt ons alone will not prove to be anything spectacular at this point, you still have to get your car thinking right. Remember, you car still thinks it is using the factory intake, header and exhaust. It still needs a proper tune. For that we have always looked to HONDATA (K-PRO/FLASHPRO) to get the job done.
As the car sits today, below is a shot taken from 2 years ago.
What once felt awful in braking, cornering and driving in a straight line… yes, apparently driving in a straight line can be terrible experience, now feels jolly smooth and adaptive. Now that the footwork with this EP3 is done, what’s next? Will it be the appearance or power unit?
The day has finally come where I part ways with the Exedy Stage 2 clutch. Ideal for every day track use and NOT every day use! The combination of the insane weight and how it is either fully engaged or disengaged made it easy to say goodbye. An Exedy Stage 1 and flywheel would be used this time around. A Stage 1 would be good enough for the two to three times that I would track a year, in return I gain 362 days of driving enjoyment. With the transmission separated, old clutch and flywheel out, it is always a good idea to replace the clutch fork and pivot ball. Looking forward to driving again.

EXEDY Racing Flywheels are made from solid one piece billet chromoly steel forgings. They are specifically designed to reduce weight and inertia for better engine response.
Most incorporate special design features to enhance air flow to improve the cooling of the clutch. The ring gear teeth are milled onto the flywheel unlike an aluminum flywheel where the ring gear is pressed onto the flywheel and have the possibility of separating from the flywheel.
Couple weeks ago a set of Skunk2 Pro S II coilovers were installed on the 2010 Honda Civic Si. Today the same car came back to have the Skunk2 coilovers replaced for a set of TEIN Super Street dampers.
Stability, comfort and control of the vehicle is now discovered from the newly installed TEIN Super Street. This was some how completely lost when Skunk2 developed the Pro S dampers.
TEIN Super Street damper kit was designed for drivers seeking improved handling on the street and at the track. A shortened shell case is utilized to allow the most piston stroke possible, which allows for a better ride at lowered ride heights, and increased grip at the track. Great for daily driving and occasion track use, whether it be at the drag strip, local circuit, or Auto-X course. Includes both ride height and damping force adjustment to allow the driver to dial in the suspension for various surface conditions.
