I wonder if the 2013 Civic will get direct injected engines like the Accord just did?
Supposedly, according to the Honda crowd, the K24A2 out of the USDM 06-08 TSX is better that the K20 in the 8th gen Civic. But, yeah, out of the box, the K24Z7 does not appear to be as good as the K24A2. I wonder why Honda didn't simply reuse the K24A2 in the Si.
