    I thought this was pretty interesting. Didn't realize that Honda made racing-tuned Si(s) and you can see the racing series on YT. There are anywhere between 3-5 Si(s) participating in any one race.

    Specs for these special Si(s) in the link.

    Wow, they turned the front faux vents into actual brake cooling vents.

    That's something I've been thinking about doing to my si. Not anytime soon, but at some point when I have plenty of time (and space) to work on the car. Not sure how hard it would be.

    Agreed. Found this thread awhile back and been wanting to do it for the front.
    https://www.civicx.com/threads/diy-rear-bumper-fake-vent-conversion.14370/

    Only thing that concerned me is why werent the vents actually vented? Was this honda saving money or out of necessity?
    Although seeing this post makes me think other wise and probably going to vent out the "vents" lol

    @utparatrooper thanks for the post:thumbsup:

    Yeah, I think you'd see some gains. It would also expose the filter to more water and debris. I guess you could put a hydro shield on it and hope that provides enough protection
