There is honestly so many things to work on with this, one being the direct injection and the tuning. I have talked to Ktuner and they are interested in trying to make the project happen.

I am a little more than just interested in the progress. Will keep an eye on this. Thanks for the heads-up.

Timing and air/fuel ratios can already be adjusted. 5psi is all I'd want with the CVT. The stock compression ratio is high but since it can work with regular octane, 5psi on super unleaded should be the ticket.

If the numbers can compete with the factory 1.5T in the Civic, it'd be a hoot in the Fit's lighter chassis.

This is excellent news. I was piecing together a custom turbo kit myself using a t25 turbo but if this comes thru, even better. I'd love to see pics on your IG page as you develop. Thank you.

Your Fit right now has that capability. Not necessarily power wise but performance wise, your car can get from point A to point B just a quickly as a stock 1.5T. With simply lighter wheels, an intake and exhaust.

A turbocharged late model fit should flat out beat it, despite hp/tq numbers possibly being lower. Seriously, your car is capable of that now.

Curious to hear if there are any updates with this?
Or have you been mainly focusing on the K24z7 swap?

Don't hold your breath! This seems like a big undertaking. Personally, I'm hoping nothing becomes of it because I'm going to probably jump on the opportunity to get one and install it.

Already sinking money into my RAV4 as I type this. Don't need any more projects. Axion Industries...no-one wants this kit. Tell us the project has been cancelled.
