    Musics abit loud it drowns our your voice and you talk so slow..
    Also I disagree on your view on plastidip, maybe you didn’t use it right? It is possible to lay plastidip super flat without any bumps making it not sticky. While I didn’t do my wheels I did it on my chrome pieces and it looks good.

    Other than that good video, keep it up.

    Sorry but it's a huge :thumbsdown: for me. The only useful piece of information was number 3, no BOV in our cars. 1 and 2 could be advice for any car not just for 10 gen. 4 and 5 was just you hating on other people's exterior mods. You could have said don't put the Injen CAI on our cars because of the AFR numbers it produces.
    Might as well had made a video thats called 5 mods that will make your car tacky and just leave the Civic out of it.
    Poop, poop,

    BOV, Injen, Burger Motorsports, Sprint Booster, overpriced lights.

    Done. No video needed.

    People seem pretty content with Injen ic. BMS intake works fine

    Injen intake is known for skewing MAF readings. More than a few posts about it.


    BMS intake is fine. It is their piggyback tuner which is a bad idea. Ask around on the bmw and mini forums. The rate of coil packs going bad increases substantially. I had one on two of my mini cooper S and eventually took it off

    Now that's a funny video in many spots! Your Avid1 wheels look great.

    What's up with the front tow strap -- isn't that for a track car?

    Micah, that's 100% true about the intake. 86salmon was talking about the Injen intercooler.:)

    I guess you are right. IDC that he hates on the exterior mods. It just seems more of a personal preference than a buyer warning. What I thought might be an intellectual video of our car, ended up being just blah. Just trying to give the guy some feedback if he is trying to create a good channel. Sorry if I was too harsh. Sincerely.

    I love my plasti dipped wheels. I took my curb-rashed cheap wheels, sanded them down and sprayed them a NEW color ...there's zero texture and looks super professional....so idk why there's so much hate!g9ktkIv.jpg

    If he’s gonna hate on plasti dip he might as well have included don’t put a tow strap on a non track car.
    If it’s not a track car it serves the same purpose as plasti-dip. It’s there for Looks.

    You must not have seen a good dip job if you say it looks cheap. This is definitely your opinion and I don’t see anyone really doing anything you say. Also try putting the music down some.
