That will be a lot of wiring, but this car has been giving me a lot of wiring experience. Here's some pics, this kit was from LedGlow. They make some good stuff. Sorry for all the salt stains, Canadian winter here. And this was after cleaning my car and the mats that day, lol.









I just bought a kit from them 2 days ago but it's the 7 colors one, what did you use as the power source? I will try to install mine myself when I get it.

Also I just received mod #1 for my 2010 civic ex today, K&N SRI, I'm excited lol I'm not really a car guy but I'll be getting into this little by little trying to install all the mods I can by myself. Any thoughts about the throttle body spacer? Been hearing good and bad reviews, also heard good dyno readings, if so what brand do y'all recommend? I live in Texas ^_^

I used an add a fuse and tapped one of the fuse slots under the dash. I'd have to check which one, so far no problems at all. Cool that you're getting the 7 colour one, you definitely won't get bored with that because you can just change it whenever you want. So far I'm not tired of the red yet lol

I'm happy with mine, I don't feel it anymore but when I first installed it I noticed the throttle was more direct from a complete stop and shifting low gears felt smoother. Couldn't say if it did anything in terms of hp or torque but the more direct feel alone felt good enough for it to be worth it IMO. Now I'm used to it and don't even know it's there.

No CEL in my case, the previous owner did the mod/bypass in the gasket which is needed (there a tread somewhere about it here). And I did the idle learning too.


Put on my refinished SSR type-C Comp, new lugnuts and changed the Si exhaust tip to something more subtle. Will clean the car and take some pics soon.

Today I received my reverse camera that goes on the reverse mirror screen, and also the footwell LEDglow package, I'll try to install then myself later today and also have to open my drivers door before I change the tint because there's something scratching it inside and leaving an ugly ripped line in the middle

Finally got my r18 boosted it's snailed up! Picked it up from shop this morning I Was collection parts off here etc for awhile before I finally got lots installed. I bought my kit used off this forum 2 yrs ago but it had some major issues. I ended up buying a lot of missing parts including a new bigger turbo. Tune incoming still have to install my weapon r intake and skunk 2 cam. Pics and YouTube video links below

Installed an iSimple CarConnect today (can't link to it, but look it up), and I'm absolutely loving it! Got it for $80 off Amazon. I wanted to add bluetooth/ upgrade the head unit, but I have the premium audio and that can be a daunting/ expensive task. This CarConnect thing integrates bluetooth like the stereo was built for it. All the radio controls work to control my phone, I can answer/decline phone calls, activate Siri, and the song/artist names show on the radio just like when playing a CD. And I get to retain all the stock CD/XM/AUX capabilities. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants to integrate bluetooth with the stock radio.

Amazon? Wow, that's awesome. I 've been wanted (already got a used BlueFusion for my factory NAV, but have YET to hook it up). I'd love to have my steering wheel buttons for music search (I will as soon as I find time to do it.......)

Allright so been a while, got the first part off the car cause I've been lazy. Hate starting over so since I can't post pics just PM me and i can email you.

Anyone want the Boomba upper torque mount? Any of you turbo guys?

I know boomba isn't making these any more. I don't have the lower mount but I found this part had some serious bang for the buck. Really puts the power down, what little there is. I will say this piece will give you some serious interior rattles at low RPM. Over 2500 and it settles down a lot but stop and go traffic is pretty harsh.

It's black with some discoloration in the anodized finish but the part itself is in good shape.

EDIT: Megaman you interested? You've been more than helpful in the past when i was putting my car together.

Weapon R IM is off the car and the stock plastic one is back on. What a PITA that was! I should have the car flashed back to stock soon, just waiting on a replacement air box and elbow. Once that's on I should have the TBS available too.

PS my old forum name was RIPNix. Joined in 11' lost the account with the massive PW breach that happened. Heh, college email long gone.
