This is my 2019.
I got it September of 19. Certified used with 68OO miles on it.
I’m starting this thread to document work done and show all of you.

Removed the “civic” and “sport” emblems. Looks clean, I don’t mind the chrome H badges.

the ac/radiator is kinda exposed on the civic. So I used aluminum mesh to back up the openings. I opened up the faux rear vents and used the same mesh behind those. Looks good, I don’t think it helps anything. (Don’t mind the dirt, been getting a lot of rain, and I did a long drive yesterday)

I cut the slots in the Intake hole, they actually block half of the opening. Below this hole is a splash guard that I cut out, now there is a pretty open shot into the air box. I monitored before and after iat, it dropped average temps down. Hardly gets over 10*f over ambient. Cools down from heat soak quicker too.

I had a rodent problem. They had chewed some rubber and made a nest on the inner fender liner insulation. I wrapped all the exposed wires that i could get to with Honda’s spicy rodent tape and I spray the peppermint repellent around the engine bay every couple days. So far I haven’t seen a return. I hate rodents, and rust.
