Another month and I'm hoping parts will be available. Some dealers don't even keep parts for the new civic yet. I went to the parts counter to get a few clips that I broke when installing foglights, and they had to order them since the car is so new.

yea its really tough to come across things right now..Im actually going to try and sell this Si. Atleast off the start. $35,000 sounds about right to me. Cause here, the dealers are having trouble trying to get them and in the color you want is tough! Luckily i got the color i want but if some rich kid really really wants this car and cant seem to get his hands on one, i would hapily sell it for $35k...:)...other then that i have a few pics but i fogot my password on we-todd so cant post the damn thing,...there goes all my old pics too damnit!

I read OP and started wondering if I landed myself in a time machine during my drunken Saturday night.
Check the post date and lo and behold.

Since this thread is zombiefied and back from the dead -

Cutting your springs
Making your own cold air intake from pep boys
Armor-alling your tires completely for mad drift action
Adding stickers for HP (Fake vents double that number)
Replacing your muffler bearings (these go bad quite often, mostly on euro cars, but sometimes Hondas)
Not changing your oil and just adding more as it burns through your motor. Eventually once it gets to be a sludge, you can get a diamond out of it which may pay for real modifications!

With all that extra speed and power you'll also want to improve nighttime visibility by changing your blinker fluid.

Ceaz has done all of these mods, and gotten excellent results. He is at least at 361.1whp. Exactly 1.1 more WHP than my silly supercharger makes. I think the biggest help was adding those vents, to move all that hot air he blows around in the engine bay.

He could cut his springs down just a hair more if he wants to be super extreme, but I think it looks kind of nice as it is.
