Hey guys. I have been putting off doing one of these, but hey why not. I bought my Si in June 2017. It was my daily for about four months until I bought an old CD5 to beat around in. While I’m modding, I’m primarily focused to paying the car off as quickly as possible.

Today I finished putting in a Type R shifter with Acuity base bushings, rocker arm and centering spring. Also have the following that I’ve done:

Smoked side markers and backup lenses
LED- headlights, fog lights, side markers, backup lights, interior lights
Carbon fiber interior trim pieces
Acuity cable bushings
NRG weighted shift knob
Audio Control LC2i
Certain Vega VPAS10
KTuner v1.2 with Honda Hack and Tunerview Lite
Side engine bay covers
Type R emblems and center caps
PRL- Cobra CAI
Resonator delete
Vibrant 1040 muffler
Sirimoto front upper strut bar

Next mods planned:

Upgraded clutch
PRL DP/FP
PRL FMIC
Flex fuel
TSP or e-tune
Springs and rear camber kits
Wheels and tires

Thanks for looking!!

Very nice! I’ve been thinking about doing the Acuity shift linkage bushings:
Acuity Shift Linkage Bushing Upgrade for the 2007-2017 Honda Civic Si, 2007-2017 Civic (MT), 2015-2017 Honda Fit (MT) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BBLYT8A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_bATQBbFQ3A5RT

Is that part of what you’ve done? I keep hearing good things but I can’t tell what it actually does... But yours is looking damn good! Nice to see another Si with PA tags.

Thanks! Yeah the cable bushings are a nice add. You don’t notice it much at first but they break in nicely. They smooth out shifting.

Got the springs and rear camber kits installed today. Was planning on doing it with someone, but they bailed on me lol. Didn’t want to pay to have it done, but it looks so good that I’m ok with it now. Properly stanced now.

I installed the race MAF housing and silicone today for the Cobra. I also emailed Ktuner to get the correct tune for the race MAF. Everything went smoothly, with no errors so far. Attached are pics showing the difference between the street and race versions. Quite a air volume difference!

Hey guys. Haven't done much over the past few weeks. I had to replace some rotted rear bumper brackets on my beater Accord, so that took up some time. I did make a sweet purchase on Black Friday. Check out these beauties. I also threw on a little bling under the hood. Ebay has these red 10mm bolts that add a little color to a bland engine bay. Once I get my PRL oil cap and battery tie down, I will post a picture.

I also ordered a roof spoiler. I will post a pic of that. I think it adds a nice subtle look.

Regarding the DP/FP, I am waiting to have it installed until I save up enough for a clutch and lightened flywheel too. I am leaning toward the Spec stage 3 with aluminum SMF, but I am hoping that there will be more options by the time I am ready to purchase. Anyone out there do a clutch with lightened flywheel yet? Curious on who has and what your feedback is.

I'm looking to do the same. Still can't decide which one though.

I was looking at a few. Pro Civic has one. HIC has one. Ultimately I just went with one off of Ebay that has good reviews. I can't see spending twice as much for a piece of painted plastic. I will just keep it waxed so it doesn't fade or anything.

That one looks good, but I'm kind of holding out for this...or at least I am until I find out how much it will be, as I'm sure it will be astronomical:

Took advantage of the nice weather around here this weekend. I painted and installed a Bayson R front lip. Installed an eBay roof spoiler. Took a few minutes and ran some black wire cover to “hide” my amp power wire and reroute my MAF sensor harness to clean up the look a little bit.
