Hello everyone,

Just thought it was time i put up a build thread for my Civic seeing as i have had it for around 3 months now and loving every bit of it Smile

I brought the car from steve who was on this forum as that was what he told me.

The spec of it when i brought it was:

Exterior

EK9'd headlights
USDM rear lights (both top and bottom turn on when lights are on)
Front Yellow Fogs
Si-R Grill
Tints on rears and back window
Front accord type r lip OEM
Parking Pole
Wind Deflectors
Plate tilt holder
Carbon Spoiler Spoon Rep
Rear Wiper Delete
JDM Rear number plate holder

Interior

All standard apart from:

Snap off Personal Steering Wheel
Short shifter
Extended gear stick
Type R leather gaitor
Type R gearknob
Kenwood Headunit

Chassis

Koni Yellow Shocks + Springs (Lowest front setting, 1 up from lowest at back)
X5 Strut Braces
SSR Watanabe Eight II Alloys
Polybushed throughout
Aftermarket LCA's

Engine

4-2-1 Header
Cat back Exhaust
Ebay Air filter (Cone)
Torque dampener
Brake stopper


Since i have owned it i have done the following:

Left exterior as it was because i like the USDM look except for i put a type r rep grill on which will be back to SI-R from Tomorrow Smile and a Tegiwa Gold rear tow hook

Interior i have stripped the rear out and put in a teggy type r driver seat (Black Recaro)

Put my Sony MP3 headunit in

Engine wise just added a De-Cat and a AEM short ram air intake

Chassis is also the same but i sold the SSR's, got myself a set of BuddyClub P1 SF which may be up for sale soon Wink and at the moment i am rocking E30 BBS alloys for winter.

Only pics i have is when i brought it and when i had my p1's on it. New pic of how it stands now will be taken as soon as i have time.

Pic was taken when i had different front alloys on and SSR's on the back (fronts were supposed to be for winter but i sold them and couldnt take rears off because of a wheel nut snapping on the hub bolt)



Pic of how it was before winter wheels put on and interior sorted



Comments and feeedback is appreciated Smile

Looking for low offset, dishy alloys with a stretch of the tyres Wink

lol would look mint on them i would of thought Cool

I thought the yellow on the lip would look out of place but it fits bang on imo, makes it looks kinda exotic Laughing

If you see any nice sets of wide 4x100 alloys, could you let us know?

Dont want to go overboard on price for them Smile

Its nice to see that car wearing some fresh shoes for a change, gives the car a whole new lease of life.

I have to say that you could do with dropiing it some more (sorry, lol), especially the front.

all stickers off imo (except of course any TOA ones Razz)

I was thinking of going lower but, 1. the setup i have is the best spring/shock combo and 2. the front are at lowest, (is lower now i got 14's on it currently) and if i want to go lower both front and back that means getting GC springs from America which i have no idea which spring rate and all that other stuff to get lol.

Yeah i didnt do them mate, there is a diy guide on civiclife on how to do them.

Just a quick small update: Daiyama coilovers are on the way so i shall drop it more soon, buddyclub spec II should be coming soon also if all goes to plan with EKWest. Now just on the hunt for some alloys. Im thinking either Axis OG 1 alloys in black/silver or gold/silver ET25 8J 15".

How hard would it be to put a D15B into my EK ? I can get one for cheap so im thinking this could happen (Engine + Gearbox in the sale) What will i need to complete the conversion?

you'll need a vtec loom. actually the same amount of work as to put a B in, apart from mounts obviously

hmm... not much point in doing the conversion then really. It was only a temp idea because i could get the engine and box for 180. I'll just wait until late next year for some sort of B18. Should be getting a harness next week too, might need help fitting it in.

Those d15b's are b16 killers Smile can be fun, but b18's are just perfect pull hard and plenty of fun
