For such astronomical price you get to customize your very own unit as you will be in touch with the engineers that are responsible for your Civic.

The powerplant is capable of churning out 237 horsepower along with a 10-percent torque improvement across the rev range. This feat is achieved by changing the pistons to improve the compression ratio, having a stainless steel exhaust pipes & a good tweak of the ECU.
