Nothing special yet under the hood have d16y8 manual tranny aem intake and dc sports short shifter i did some research on stock 1/4 mile 2000 civic ex coupe it is 16.5 to 16.8 so we will see what happens. I will let you all know how i did and download some time slips for ya'll. :lol:

Careful, dont overrev. Y8's like to spin rod bearings. and lift all the way when you shift.
