Searched and came up with nothing like this.

For those who are like me in the sense they always have an urge to do something to their car without spending a TON of money let's start a little "mods" list. Reference other posts if you feel like it. I'll start:

1. Horn Replacement. About $15 if you don't get crazy with it and it'll definately make you feel better about your safety. Ease to install- 4/10. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3420&highlight=horn

2. Headlight Replacement. $20-40 for replacement of the stock 9006 low-beams. Ease to install- 4/10 overall (the passenger side is a PITA! http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10184&highlight=headlight

3. LED Interior Lighting. $5-xxx depending on what lights you replace. Change out your Dome, map, trunk, license plate, even tail lights. Ease to install- 2/10. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6357&highlight=headlight

Feel free to add to this list.

Thanks for posting those. I don't know much about cars but I'd like to change the way mine looks a bit. I like how the blue dome light looks, so maybe I'll attempt doing that...

Does that mean it's really easy or really difficult?

7. Remove Intake Resonator. $0. Pop off the hose off the air filter box if you are lazy, or just remove the whole thing. Gives the engine some more growl.

could hurt your fuel economy though, that WOT sound does get addictive. But im not sure if our cars go to full WOT when we mash the gas or if the car decides how much to open the throttle for us.

I take off the intake tube durning cool to cold temps to help keep the mpg up. Thats called a warm air intake. But during the summer / warm temps intake air can get to hot. With intake air temps at 140+ degrees. I dont think it will hurt the engine short term. But it does rob hp and torque when the intake air is to warm. Cool sound aside. As a summer mod its worthless.

hi/DRL- 9005

lo- 9006

dont bother replacing 9005 for DRL changes, theyll still be yellow. I think alot of people use SilverStars 40 bucks. Im gonna try PIAA's. 80 bucks.

could also consider doing something for your grille to protect the condenser. Hardware cloth or mesh works well.
