Hey,

I finally had some time to put information regarding my build for my Honda Civic Si ‘20. I plan on building this car slowly, but effectively and efficiently as this is my daily driver. I’ve had this car since November 2019 and it is my first manual car! I came from a ‘90 Honda Civic -> ‘05 Toyota Camry -> and finally this Honda Civic Si ‘20 at the age of 20 (I was able to get this by myself without the help of my parent which was a huge milestone for me.)

Recently changed the name, it’s Nero now. Nero means black in Italian :beer:

My overall goal for this car is to make the drive experience overall better and add a couple of power mods (while keeping the liability). Feel free to leave your thoughts on my car :eek:

Performance Modifications (Experience):
I enjoy driving the car ALOT more now. People were not kidding about the tunes with a 1.5L engine. They can make some serious power.

For the “safety” measures:
I don’t plan on driving this car like a f$!king idiot, but I do take exits or beginning of a freeway entrance hard. I do occasional pulls, but I try not going overboard. I put a maximum boost for 4th, 5th, and 6th gear. I never WOT until 4K (3.5k minimum) with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
I am currently tuned with Phearable 1.5 Si Tune.

I honestly just received the shift knob today lol. I'm waiting for it to be dark so I can take some pictures, but here's a link to his site and you can find some pictures there.

You can also customize it!

And thanks man, I got the idea with a "blue lip" from someone named Nick in the Si Facebook Groups.

Small update:

My car had a complete transformation with looks and power!
I decided to go balls deep with touching the engine’s performance. I did plenty of research and felt more comfortable in tuning the vehicle. I love it so far, I do rips here and there, but I mainly drive like a grandma at times.

I changed my grill, front lip, side skirts, rear diffuser, hood, and trunk! The carbon fiber goes very well with the crystal black pearl paint.

A few photos from September. I need new photos once I do a two step correction and ceramic coat the vehicle with CQUARTZ.
I’m also in the process of restoring this seibon hood I recently purchased.
