D2 Springs are in.

I will never touch the suspension on this car again. I'm not sure why, but the front assembly proved to be the biggest PITA. My prior experience didnt prepare me for the hell this front assembly proved to be. How did everyone else tighten the top strut nut back?

Total install time
Front- A week:banghead:

Back- 10 minutes.

Few more upgrades/modifications.

Whiteline RSB installed.
Buttershift.com boot installed (PM me for special discount on site)
Wrapped shift area (avery sw900 CFiber)
Stickers & plate installed
Engine fender covers (ebay)

Anyone installing a short shift adapter will need to zip tie the link bushing. The shifter will "click" going into even gears (2,4,6) if you do not. Requires holes to be drilled in shifter mount. This is not difficult. ACUITY has a video showing how to do this.

Updates:
PRL FMIC powder coated black & installed. Special thanks to @FearTheH. Go VGK!

Driver side fog shroud removed and vented.

This had made a considerable difference in IAT temps. Average was around 10-12° above ambient. After drilling holes it dropped to 7-8°. Upon complete removal it has dropped an additional 1-2°. Temperatures drop much quicker now that the filter gets direct air upon the car moving.

FMIC was a must for the summers here. It will prove its use in the coming months.

Lastly, the setrab oil cooler was loosely measured and mounted. A longer return line will be needed, as well as the Greddy oil block adapter ($105). Sirimoto offers the Pedistal and relocater but the price is staggering. Will get this installed before summer.

I also measured the C&R racing radiator i have layng around. It is 3" shorter but 3" thick. Slim fans and custom shroud will be needed if i go that route.

Or a koyo lol.

Gold wrap installed. This is the cheaper variety and there was a slight difference already. Outside temp 78°. IAT 1 +10. IAT 2 +15. This was about 2° difference from normal, and it was rather warm .(+= above outside temp)
Wrap installed on:
TIP
Coolant lines
Brake reservoir
Hood right behind latch (where intake sits)
Charge pipe
New muffler and tip installed. Started off with a muffler delete....that lasted two days.

Magnaflow 14210 muffler. Muffler is designed similar to oem (and size) so it mounts perfectly.
Sound is deeper than stock. Stock resonator in place. The rasp from the cat delete is gone as the piping in the rear is now larger + larger tips.

All work was done by Manny at Downtown Mufflers. 702-366-0242. Tell him Jordan with the Blue civic sent you[
