    Civic boys are easily impressed but they don't see the long term issues as crankwalk which will happen, but its easier to bury your head in sand and hope it does not happen.

    I am all for improved products but this is your daily drive not a 10000 mile car then a full engine rebuild.

    It will work but it will wear faster with no adverse risk to your engine. if both you want a quicker car different faster stock car in my opinion .

    Track days she will learn how to extract that power, sometimes it investment in the driver which counts not the hardware.

    @fastphil, I'd personally remap and use OEM clutch/flywheel for a daily driver. If you're going to be tracking the car, or giving it serious abuse in general I'd consider uprating. As CJ said, the extra stress from running such a set-up isn't worth the hassle, IMO.

    It's really a pick your path scenario, deal with a faster wearing OEM clutch which may need replacement, or get an uprated clutch will cause faster wear on harder to replace components. It's up to you deciding what the lesser risk is.

    For the record, lots of members are doing okay on the OEM clutch and remapped - very much depends on your driving style. It will wear quicker, but people such as @Brodziu are going strong with heavy mileage.

    Put "motorsport" after anything on Civinfo and you'll have people climbing over each other to throw money away.

    You will get a different general opinion from this forum to CivInfo and so on. its not a witch hunt but you will find most people here would shy away from re-maps etc. there are many draw backs with re-maps and unfortunately its mainly due to the fact a standard engine is designed to handle only so much power. my view is you don't want a paddle clutch / single mass set up on a CR-V of all cars. its not really a performance car in most respects, size, weight, 4x4 etc. I would say have it mapped but to a level that will not cause to much stress on the clutch. it will most defiantly cause you to need a new clutch, but stick to standard. your not racing for red bull, you need to be able to live with the car.
