My first honda. Still a muscle guy at heart but I've now got an 08 SI. So far so good. **** for torque but its fun to keep those rpm's nice and high. So far all ive got is intake and tri y headers. Full exhaust to come very soon along with flash pro. Any other cheap suggestions?
Throttle body and intake manifold thermal gaskets. Definitely makes a difference on these cars.

Hello Fellow 8th Gen Members!

Hello All, I am joining this forum to learn more about my Civic Si before I start some mods. Unfortunately, the story starts on a sad note. My 2010 Si belonged to my brother who died in a fall (basically due to Alcoholism). He was a former auto-crosser and Formula Ford driver. So, I bought the car from his estate and plan to keep it and modify it in his memory. He was a clever guy and I have the license plate "HONDA". So far, other than wheels and a performance chip, it's stock. I have had other American performance cars, most recently a '69 Chevelle. This is my first experience with "4 bangers". I like the performance, the sound of the VTEC and the handling. I've been researching the Kraftwerks Superchargers and broke the news to the wife that I might want to begin a "project car". I live in the DC area and there are a lot of performance cars (mostly stock purchases!).

Is that a genuine HFP body kit? How is the fitment? When adding the front lip kit, how much does it lower the car compared to no front lip kit? Is your car on stock suspensions? Are you scrapping with the body lip kit?

Nice ride!

Thanks men !! and yes, all the parts are from the factory (HFP), and the suspension is original .
The body kit, makes my car, look lower than normal. I bought my civic11 in 2011 with all the body kit from the Deler. The rings are Honda Accord 2013 HFP size 18.

New to Hondas. Wanted a reliable small car that I could chuck around on VA backroads. Driven everything from the ST twins, to the Cooper S, to the GTI, fell in love after driving friend's built and stock FG2s. Already done Hybrid Racing shift cable and base bushings. Probably going to do camber bolts in the front to dial out some understeer. Hopefully doing Hondata to get rid of the rev hang but otherwise leaving it stock. Been too busy driving it, wheels are caked in brake dust and the rest of the car is half brown so here's a photo of when I picked it up at the beginning of the month.

Been lurking this site on and off for a few years since I bought my 09 Si. Just finally made a account, and finally started adding a few things to my car.

current things I've done are :
Exedy Stage 1 Organic Clutch Kit
Exedy 9lb flywheel
Enkei EDR9 17 wheels
Black gloss vinyl roof wrap
Window tints
JDM front and rear badges
Jays racing steering wheel badge

Some things planning to add in the near future :
Lowering springs or possibly coilovers
New shift boot/knob
Some interior vinyl accents
