    Hey Mike,

    Saw that you bought the CTR/RR underspoiler and you had a single exhaust opening RR rear lip like me. Was seeing how bad the fitment issues were and if you had any pics from the install? Close to buying this lip and modifying it a bit to make it fit....was wondering if you could shed some light on this and help me out. thanks

    I put the Si coupe suspension on my LX Sedan. No probelms, the vehicle had a small drop, the alignment went fine. After installing, the alignment was off very little. The alignment went fine. The ride is harder, as to be expected, than the original suspension but very acceptable. The suspension is tight with very little roll, I tried quick lane changes at increasing speeds on the expressway..flawless. The car ate up the exit ramp circle at 40 mph.

    This is in regards to running the TB spacer with a blower:

    erik loza "It makes sense because as the inlet castings on both the Comptech and Moss blowers, due to the acute angle they hook in order to meet the compressor inlet, once the throttle butterfly moves to WOT, you basically obstruct the airflow probably 30%-40%. This is because both mfrs. were trying to keep it so that you could use the stock airbox with the blower and things are tight in the intake area.

    Anything you can do to straighten out the inlet tract ahead of that casting will help. Back when I had my blower, I was actually planning to fabricate a 2.0" spacer out of phenolic, which would keep some of the compressor heat out of the throttle body as well as give the incoming air charge a good chance to straighten out before it hit that inlet casting. So, to answer the TS' question, yes, I think it's a worthwhile mod for this application."

    you keep comparing the driver assists to sports cars and real race cars.....we are on a civic forum. civics don't need computer assist, just a semi competent driver. its not ignorance its logic, if you can even half ass drive you wouldn't want any of that junk and you hate the lag/rev hang from the dbw. start a thread about it if you really want others opinions.
