Hey I’m new to the honda world been in VWs since I started driving lol. I just recebtly bought an 08 honda civic lx 2dr coupe 5 speed. I’m looking to make changes to it soon in the coming months and wanted something of a starter mod list but still keeping it as a decent DD. I’m looking to start small with changing out the clutch and going up from there. I’m new to modding so anything and everything helps!! Thanks in advance.

P.S. if possible I’m also trying to build it as a sleeper.

The 1.8l isn't the best with mods but I would do:
  • General maintenance (valve lash and all fresh fluids)
  • NST Lightweight Pulleys (underdrive or OE size would be the best)
  • Upgraded intake
  • If you have the money, forced induction (turbo, supercharger)

So with bullet points 2-4, what would be the best suggestions as far as companies go and pricing. Like what would be some good intake modifications without getting too pricey just starting out. Because I think I want to go the naturally aspirated route before going the forced induction route.
