New Member in the lower mainland

Hello everybody, new member here. I have just purchased a 2010 Civic Si Sedan from Jonker Honda Tuesday of this week. I pick the car up on monday due to there being an engine noise that I heard, and asked them to fix it before I picked if up. I will post picture as soon as I get it, but couldn't resist signing up for 8th Civic until then.

I am new to hondas but by no means new to modifying cars, I've had several Ae86's, a turbo talon and my latest car which I unfortunately have to part with, a turbo miata.

I have several plans for my new car, and can't wait to meet some of you.

Welcome to the forum!

Hope to see you out at some of our meets: Friday nights at Tim Hortons on Marine Way/Byrne Rd; a future sushi meet at the end of April (thread will go up next week); and don't miss out on our annual Whistler cruise in June. All can be found in threads in the BC section here.

Ah nice! There's lots of options for that

Every week is different. Once warmer weather comes I'm sure we'll get more.

Welcome to the forums! What color and how many kms does it have?

Turbo? That would be awesome! You should check out Full Race Turbo kit for the k20

It's white with 29000 kms. The full race is the kit is what I have been looking at. Man, waiting to pick this car up is killing me.

Is anyone in the lower mainland turbo charged?

Thats not bad.. did it have a hfp body kit already installed?

Turbo kit is really expensive but is nice i guess .. Someone from richmond has a skunk2 header + full race 3" on his si sedan and it sounds good imo... The only turbo we know off is the guy from Chilliwack..

I'm excited to actually see and hear how a full race turbo kit would sound in person... Keep us posted!

FR turbo kit would be awesome, but it's pretty expensive...you get what you pay for I guess.

No HFP kit. Ya turbo kits are always expensive. But the one for the civic was quite a bit more than the one for my miata. Either way, I don't think the turbo will happen anytime soon, but I am pretty sure, that is the direction I would like to go in.

haha, I actually had 3 of them, but only had pictures of 2. Everytime I sold one, I ended up missing it too much, so naturally I went and found another one. I'm hoping a used turbo kit might pop up.

alright, I'll pull it out of the garage and take a picture, since I don't have any with the new wheels.
