SOLD IT LAST NIGHT:oops:

Car: 1995 Honda Civic Si
Purpose: Just a fun car.

UPDATED 4.25.09
NEW STEREO!!!!! After having shitty ass speakers, not being able to roll down my front windows because of the shitty install and magnet size, I have given what my car rightfully deserves. (See stereo) I've recently made up my mind and this is car is strictly a DD. I just decided to halt all my LARGE plans and keep it simple. I just want my car to be nice for what it is and just make me happy without doing many modifications. As of right now I am pretty much done with the car. I may comlpete a simple LS swap later on for some more power/torque but I don't need that anytime soon. I'm older now and have priorities.

PERFORMANCE:
-Function7 lower control arms
-Energy Suspension Hyper-Flex polyurethane kit (some of it on so far :-) )
-Megan Racing front A-arm camber kit
-Megan Racing rear camber arms
-Megan Racing 32-way street dampers (12kg F / 6kg R)
-ASR rear subframe brace
-Integra Type R rear sway bar (22mm)
-Function7 endlinks w/ aluminum bushings
-Sparco hub
-Sparco Champion Ltd Edition steering wheel
-Integra LS wheels. Gold w/upainted outer edge (Kumho Ecsta AST 195/50)

STEREO
-Alpine CDA-105 w/ iPod integration
-2 pairs of Alpine Type-S 6.5"s
-80GB iPod Classic

UPCOMING:

-Spoon front strut tower brace
-Hawk pads, Brembo discs
-Stainless steel braided brake lines
-Super Blue race fluid
-Falken Azenis 205-50-15
-recoat the LS wheels. They are starting to peel a bit on the spokes
-ding removal
-Alpine Amplifier (not sure which yet, but I want more power and insurance for the speakers)

Here are some progress pics, from the day I bought it to now. I will post more detailed and better ones when they upload.

On the way are lower control arms, sway bar endlinks, and aluminum bushings. I'm ordering my dampers, polyurethane bushing kit, A-arm front camber, and rear camber kit today. I'm not trying to order every suspension component at once because I want to get a good feel for the car and tune it accordingly. But first, since the HXs are on with mismatched all seasons and a 60 sidewall, I will be investing in some lightweight 15x7s and a 215/50/15 street radial. After I'm happy with my suspension and brakes, I will go with a different powerplant. I have a H22A4 lined up right now. It's a longblock so I will probably end up sourcing out a B series LSD transmission for it.

Yes yes I know. I mean just look at the difference in the world of MS paint!

I haven't really set one. I would like to have it done by summer. It may not be swapped by then. Don't know when I will be doing that, because I am looking at a near future career that will put my car into hibernation mode for a long long time :-(

Why don't you go with something more like a seven-sided lug nut? They are much harder to steal then your normal lug nuts.

For the extended lugs, why don't you go with a stock replacement ARP wheel stud? They have been known to be anywhere between 1/8-1/4 an inch longer then stock. Or is it more of a looks thing?

Sorry man I just had to mess with you! :thumbs up

Haha thanks, The pig get's some laughs and comments. Lots of good pics on the way! I just got home from the shop. With the much appreciated help of some friends, everything went on great. (1 broken bolt) The ITR swaybar, F7 endlinks, and the aluminum bushings were not installed. I'm going to wait until I get that rear tie brace. I also want to raise the rear back up just a little bit. Sorry Ryan hahah.

Indeed. Thanks for the help dude. We got it done in no time. I'm going to check my funds next week and get a strut bar and rear brace ordered up. Then I'll be able to get the swaybar, endlinks and bushings on.

Posted some pics with the wheels on. I just ordered my rear subframe brace. That way I will be able to install the ITR rear swaybar, the endlinks and aluminum bushings. Strut bars next week. There are a bunch of pics on my friend's digital camera of when we did the install those have yet to be uploaded.

Update. Not really performance oriented but I just installed an Alpine CDA-105, two pairs of Alpine Type-S 6 1/2 speakers, (upgraded the rears from 5 1/4) and a 80GB Ipod Classic. I had it proffesionally installed. It's a bangin stereo! So loud and crispy clear.

Thanks I'm going to miss the car. I'm looking at 2002+ Acura TLs and a 2002 Nissan Altima 3.5SE 5-speed. I will not be modding whatever I get however, unless it's stereo or ICE related. I sold the Civic for $4,840.

I don't have it yet.
