you probably are already aware of this but just fyi your going to end up spending alot more money than whats on that list because your going to have to pay for installation on everything
also, if your getting an STi, i would just focus on suspension for the civic because its never going to be as fast as the subaru unless you dump alot of money into it

The last part is absolutely optional and I'm not counting it.
It's also two racing seats for 800
