2001 Honda Civic Ex. Purchased used from the Honda dealer at 33,000 miles. This is my third Honda, following a 94 Integra and a 91 CRX.
I had three summer projects for my car this year, which were interior, new rims/tires, and an H.I.D. setup, all of which I was able to complete. By the end of next summer I hope to have a full suspension (springs, shocks, and camber) and a K20A2 motor swap (RSX-S) which produces 205 HP and is attached to a 6 speed transmission. I guess some body work and paint will be put off for the time being.
Tsudo exhaust and K&N Intake. I'm not really going to bother with performance until I swap the engine. 2 problems. One, I need to save a bunhc more money so the engine would be put in with a clutch, new exhuast, and a bunch of other 'new' performance stuff. Second, I don't know about the prices and availability of K20A2 (rsx-s), K20A (jap typeR), or K20z (these are good too). Unless I go cheap and get a base model RSX or civic si K20A_ 1 or 3, which are only 160hp, I have no plans to turbo... Although I definitely wouldn't mind getting the new Acura RDX turbo engine (K23) in 5 spd. manual, but those things are brand new and that engine is way out of my price range.
