Dj Tho Mi's 07 RR Civic SI


Updates after this page(in order).



!!!Updated June 22, 2009!!!

Welcome to my official build thread.
My name is Tommy but you may call me Dj Tho Mi (Vietnamese for bowl of noodles).
I'm from Austin, TX, and just trying to represent a city where the car scene isn't too big.
Anyway, enough of me and on with the project!

Picked up February 10, 2007 with 10 miles (Right off the truck =D)

(Note: I didn't really give her a name up to this day, but I've just been calling it my "Rocketship". :thumb:

Since I now got a theme, how about the Mark 4? =P )

Update August 18, 2007
San Antonio, TX All State Meet.

Update October 10, 2007
Mini meet at Austin 360 bridge.

Update October 20, 2007
So the time finally came for me to start upgrading my car. Ordered a couple of parts here and there.

Update October 28, 2007
Installed clear rear turn signals. (Ebay, this was a pretty easy install)

Before (Passenger)

After (Passenger)

Before (Driver)

After (Driver)

Installed Fujita SRI (Corsport, only problem was clamp fitment)



IMO, the SRI sounds great and you can definitely feel the difference in power.

Update October 31, 2007 - Halloween

Installed Skunk2 Springs (Corsport, rides great)

(Buddy of mine helping)



IMO, the springs give a perfect drop; rides great despite the stiffness resulting in feeling more bumps.

Installed Genesis 10,000k H.I.Ds (HID-SIN, I love the color)

4,100K (Left) VS 10,000K (Right)

IMO, the color is perfect, but it IS darker on the road (as I already knew this). As others would say, anything higher than 5-6k is a waste of money, it's not. If you're looking for show quality, the higher the K the better, even though you are compromising your driving visibilty. In the end, 6K under = Performance/Visibility - 6,500K up = Show/Decreased Visibility/Better Looks

Update November 5, 2007
Austin, TX Kseries All State Meet

Update April 5, 2008
After a week or so of ordering other things, everything is finally together.
Got the valve cover and HFP lip kit for my birthday (March 5, 2008 *21 baby!*)

WTF? IKEA makes JDM parts? j/k it's my JDM black dip-stick :woowoo:

Everything out of the box and ready to go in. :laughing:

Nokya 2500k high beam bulbs; also have Noyka 2500k fog light bulbs but I installed it before taking a pic of it.

Before valve cover.

Intake manifold cover off.


The guts.

Everything off!

JDM Wrinkle Red K20 Valve Cover.

Before red Honda "H's".

After red Honda "H's".

White "HONDA" front caliper decals (Forgot before pic...)

Before Strut King foot rest pedal.

After Strut King foot rest pedal.

Red Honda "H" steering wheel emblem. (Forgot before pic here too... -_-" )

Update April 6, 2008
On to day 2 of installations.

Before installing the full HFP lip kit. (Too bad I didn't have any photoshoots with her before.)

Fog light cutout, using the dremel tool. (Worked good; thought it'd be faster)

Someone stole my bumper... =/

Left fog w/ front lip.

Right side

Front lip on w/ lights.

Gettin rear lip on.

Another front shot (considering the front lip is the most appealing out of the whole kit. :thumb: )

What do you guys think about these wheels? Either 18's or 19"s. First choice is the Forge Grey, because it's different. Then the Mirror Machine. Reason I don't really want to do the black with mirror lip, is because almost everybody has that, and it's too typical. Well anywho, opinions please.

Well it's been almost four months now since I've had this little toy. Ha, yeah I've been pretty much lazy to post pics but I guess here is a few. Put tons of miles already... :xyxnervou

Since a lot of you guys have your own threads that show the progress of your vehicle, I might as well do one too.

So far the only mods I have are:
- Led (White) Liscense Plate Lights
- Led (Red) Map Lights
- Led (Red) Dome Lights
- Led (White) Reverse Lights
- 2 12" ARC Audio Subs
- 1 DB Drive 1200 Watt AMP
- Civic Emblem delete (this counts as a mod! :thumb: )

Soon to come:
- Springs
- Rims
- Tint
- Lip Kit

Major mods will come later.

nice si.

So I've dropped some money on a Florida trip, so no changes to the vehicles at this minute. As soon as I get back, I'll start bankin' again, and the all the ka-ching will go into the SI. Until then, enjoy the stock-ie!!!
