Desire stealth, street legal. Best of Breed and quality. Have the HFP tire option on stock 17 rims. Will get winter rubber. Black 4dr Civic Si Sedan due in 1-2 days from dealer. Cape Cod MA location.

Below is my research on this forum.Thought might be useful to have my research in 1 place...I borrowed heavily from those before me-thanks for your posts. And research. Once car is done will post pics, and likley will get the tune/dyno done when re-flashed as well, so will post.

Vendor lists will buy from:

a) www.ExceleratePerformance.com in CT-nice chat.
-R/T cat
-Headers from comptech
-Progress sway bar
-Short shift comptech

a1) www.comptechusa.com nice chat as well direct with them.
-will buy via excelerate though vs. direct

b) HFP & OEM
http://www.collegehillshonda.com
http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com/
-online and cheap. Will give local dealer a shot :) first. ha.

c) Turbo Mafia-http://turbo-mafia.com


d) http://www.wangsautospec.com/
-for Hondata,tune,dyno
-2.5 hours away :(


e)X-intake: impressive research and dyno testing!
-from "xfactorwrx" be careful as seems another similar product is being sold, no dyno tests and such. threads out there are confusing on this subject. see below from the man himself.
-how to buy! add name to list under the "shocking power" thread under sponsored classifieds section, then gotta get the man your clams: paypal is [email protected] . believe is 300 clams, but check in.

MOD List:
-Random Tech High Flow Muffler
-Comptech Shorty street legal headers.
-Comptech Short Shifter
-HFP Springs
-Turbo-Mafia 2.5",1 or 2 resonators?,t-m WS2 Muffler,straight over lca.
-Hondata Reflash
-Hondata Heat Shield Gasket
-X intake or wait for Comptech icebox??
-progress sway bar

OEM stuff:
-Moonroof Visor
-All Season Floor Mats
-air deflector
-door visors
-locking lug nuts

Not doing a S/C or Turbo, at least for a while.

Anything might reccomend? Critiques? Personal experience with above mods?

I'm not bashing SiSM here, but if you are looking for the intake that has the RESEARCH AND DYNOS you might want to talk to site sponsor XFACTORWRX.

So, for "E" in your list, XFactor, nothing less.

are you sure you don't? go to www.dynojet.com and type in your zip code they will give you a list of people who have dyno's close to you. You might be surprised how many there really are.

I have a real easy way to install your IMG if your interested. I installed mine in less than a half hour. If your willing to drive to lynn, I'm the lead mechanic/foreman there, I'll throw it in for a small fee. lol jk. Or I'll just tell you how I did it if you think you can pull it off. PM me if your interested. I also have access to lifts and what not if you need installs on your gear. Let me know, always willing to help out a fellow 8th member.
