Civic Build Questions
A little useless back story to start things off. Im graduating high school this year and my dad wants to start a project for summer and our car of choice is a gen 5. Our goal is to turn it into a 325-350hp street car with decent acceleration, but also reliability. The car is gonna start stick but we’re going to do a sequential swap. my questions are, what would be a good choice for a semi reliable daily driver type setup, what is a good hub to look for parts on, and is there any specific mods every civic should have that just make it look, drive, or behave better?
i’ll be around in case anyone needs me to add anything.
thanks everyone

With that much of a power goal, get your wallet out.
Realistically, what is your budget?
Another thing to consider with that much power, don't neglect suspension upgrades, the power is useless unless you can keep the car glued to the road.

Share some pics, it might give us some better insight on where to start. You could hit that HP goal a few different ways, but I'd say less is more for a first ground up build. Do you have a daily driver?
