Well, I have always done stupid in-depth build threads but with the whole Photobucket fiasco of 2017 I was somewhat against them. I was also using the car for my long commute and wasn't' going to modify it much...

So - CivicX actually host pics, and I haven't left the car alone since I got it in Late October so going to do this as a place holder and come back and do pics and catch this up - to include installing some parts and then taking them off and the reasons behind that.

So expect a few months worth of updates soon, and then will be buying some camera equipment and will start posting more youtube vid's as the phone ones suck;-) Oh, I commute 120 a day minimum but usually around 160 a day, that why I have put so much in the sound deadening etc, bought last week in October at 15,500 miles this morning already:) At 44k as of March 1st

New Wheels Again back in November....Konig 18x9's in Gunmetal


Also this may be helpful for torn CV boots:

Well will start from the beginning and due to catchup will be somewhat less pic's than the feel of the build will have from purchase till now - but expect some in-depth build updates when i do things and eventually will establish a good youtube channel - I'm in last class for my MBA right now, work 50+ hours a week, commute 2+ hours a day and have 3 kids and a wife. Finishing the MBA will free up a little bit of time but am getting a Second Masters and finish it in Fall or Spring semester of next year so not too much lol. Once school is done will get some decent camera equipment and put time into a page, until then, pictures and occasional vid's to enjoy.

Did the TypeR Shifter lever and base swap last night as well as my 2nd oil change with Mobile 1 Syn and Mobile 1 Long life filter. At 15700 this morning and change roughly every 7500 miles. I did the "home depot or lowes" solid shifter base bushings as well and modified Caraddicts just a bit as I added an additional smaller washer to make sure it was tight and shored up. It is a change and is shorter but not what some people are saying as significant. I also threw some butyl deadner under the console as I had it handy, but there was factory deadener there and not alot exposed, when I remove the carpet, or flip it up to add the buytl and CCF I'll see if I can add more to the sides of the hump but a little can go a long way there.

Anyway, back to the beginning:

Shopped around A LOT - had not had a Honda since my old 93 VX Hatch that I did a B16 swap in back in 98-2000, I may actually have a pic on here but if not can edit in later, I worked it over pretty good and until I had my 2002 Saleen Vert that I built the ever loving shit out of, my old B16 hatch was my fastest 1/4 mile car so it held that title for around 10 years. Anyway, I have never really been brand loyal but I always end up in a Mustang of some sort for racing, and with a Toyota 4x4 of some sort. Wife, kids, and job dictate I only have one vehicle so enter the requirements that led me to the Si over all others:

MPG
MPG
MPG
LSD
6 Speed
Autocross ability
Aftermarket support
Good cost and ability to deal it down.

The contenders were Focus ST, GTI, Elantra Sport, Accord Sport 9th and 10th gens, and the outside one was my buddies 335d that has everyting done but the deletes.

ST and GTI immediately were first considerations - but MPG killed them, and lack of LSD in the ST eliminated it and in all honesty - I had preordered one in 2012 and when the delayed delivery I ended up buying my last GTI a new MK6 which I sold pretty quickly. With that being said the ONLY 2 reasons I'm not driving a new MK7 GTI is MPG and Cost.

But I'm glad I picked up the car, so onto the build and some pictures to make this Army Proof:

Completely stock with the Youngest - well it has tint but I had that included in the deal - as for the deal, I worked USAA and got the truecar price to 22,800, then went to volume dealership with the emails, immediately they matched the deal at 22,800 but thought hey let me try for more, worked them to 21800 and then threw the REcent graduate 500 on top and worked the deal to 21,300, then prior to them putting taxes on it put 4k cash down. My note is under 300 a month and could not be happier. I pay less in payment, insurance and Gas than I paid just for in Gas on my old 4Runner:)

IMG_9155.JPG


2 very overpriced TypeR's back in November when I went back to dealership to get my tint job done

IMG_9148.JPG


Ecstatic
with the Gas mileage at 80 mph and why I ended up in this awesome little package!

Way more to come - editing in items at this time on this one - Among other little things I did around Christmas I started with the sound deadening. I went with Killmat aka Norinco 80 mil Butyl and shot for 20-50% coverage depending on location. I will say I'm not done with this stage yet, I have easily another 25 sq feet left and I will be removing door panels again to do CCF that I have now, more on that later, and since requested I'll make sure I add the spray foam on this one as well:)

Before, during, after for trunk and a pic of the doors and maybe rear shelf if i'm feeling froggy, trunk lid as well, will be covering this with CCF for sure as well!

Broken rear tweeters from panel removal in the rear...
IMG_0428.JPG


IMG_0563.JPG


Spray foam, this is the Loctite Window and Door expanding and contracting foam (it breathes and is a high density. It made a difference but not huge, at the same time I did this foam as a trial - it removes extremely easy btw just have to pull it out from the bottom with the fender liners removed. I think that adding the seam sealer I had left over to the bottom of my engine bay covers thickly made more of a difference than the spray foam, as such, will be trying some other items in the future, but this did have the below effects on the same stretch of highway...


IMG_0839.JPG


85 before,
IMG_0829.JPG

and 81 immediately after - I mean the foam had not even expanded all the way yet... Both at 79 mph with cruise on - same stretch of highway... I was WAY in Upper 90's prior to the sound deadening on doors, trunk, and rear seat area with the Butyl BTW! 98 is what I read at 80mph, so from 98 to 81 the car is WAY nicer now - Remember I drive a Minimum of 120 miles a day M-F!

More random sound deadening Pic's - I am at work and have more at home but when home all I'm doing is my Captstone course for my MBA - Walk this Saturday! but don't finish the class till May 19th and is intense and also have my Masters of Science Information Technology Management I'm finishing up as well for the Fall 2 semester so have an IT Project Management course that is taking a bunch of time as well. Then throw on my 3 kids and work and I have no time lol.


Broken glass repair:


IMG_0388.JPG


Gundo/S2K mod cuts - which I ended up not doing...


IMG_0480.JPG


Fuckin' Fast knob - which I have off and a weighted knob on with the TypeR shifter setup - more on that later...


IMG_0572.JPG


Boomba Mount installed


IMG_0997.JPG


Final placement/fitment on the RA flaps - I lost 2 mpg with them in the first position as they stuck out too much.


IMG_0549.JPG


Injen Intake installed


IMG_0706.JPG


Car doing Work


IMG_0721.JPG


Slips from Hot day at the track in Feb, with Intake and Mount -Both are removed now...

IMG_0188.JPG


From the above slips - if you notice first time to track and second time to track in these slips getting more comfy with the car - little more consistency. I will say, I'm back to stock completely with a KTuner Baseline 19/21, Vit Stage1, and 19/23 setup I switch between and ALL of them are considerably faster than this 14.5 with MPH picking up a TON. Can't wait to hit the track soon! If I have the time will try to get 2 passes on each tune, but first will be the Vit Stage 1...

IMG_0041.JPG


The old/leftover Seam sealer - From my BMW and 4Runner projects - that I lined the bottom of the leaf covers with - this helped ALOT on the resonance and added weight to the covers...

IMG_0831.JPG


Wheel Spacers - 20mm all around - 10.9 studs and hub centric. I feel that the 20mm is slightly more aggressive than I wanted, but will lower it and see as think it will be perfect with them then, but 15 or 18 mm may have been what i wanted..

I think this will be the last one - but the sound deadening alone will take up a full post lol, after these get edited in with pic's and changes will be good to go and start going from whatever that is:)

Adding window black chrome trim to make putting vinyl on all area's easier, and measurements pre Eibach install:)

Very interested in seeing what type of foam that you purchased and where you placed it.

Haha I have a ton more updates to do to this! Yeah more planned but have been limited on time as on the road a lot for work, I will be editing in stuff again soon as should have more time in the evenings starting Monday! Then out of the country for a while so will be sporadic for a bit! Hoping for some track tune soon and look to be trying to work a Road Atlanta trip in the fall as well so will be tires/rims, brake lines, brake ducting, rear bar prior to that trip:)

Also, the stock airbox modded - did back in March, KTuner tunerview and some pics of the downpipe wrapped (did frontpipe as well) and installed, as well as the hasport mount showing in one or two. Some random extra sound deadening I have done, and I will be removing the foam from the front fenders, I feel it has cut down on air escaping from under the hood, will look at boomat spray, or possibly lineX for the entire undercarriage;-)

Oh and the short lived front bra, had to try it during lovebug season here, as you can see if pics above have started playing with my gloss black vinyl up front now:)

Way more to come to get it caught up, here are some more randoms, including patching the CV boot on passenger side I punctured, used goop (aka shoe goo) and DEI tape, also have the MAPerformance intake enroute now as well:) Will use without the ducting that I applied to the stock intake that I modified at first, bu will probably put it back in after some temperature readings, and considering heavily adding some vent's to the top of the hood if can get color matched - would be scary to cut my stock hood though!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, that's my middle child - 15 at the time learning to drive a manual, she did fucking amazing and made me realize how badly I need to do the CDV delete lol;)
