So far, she has 19" Zenettis, DC Ceramic Race Header, DC sports Cat Back Exhaust, Eiback Kit, AEM CAI, Red Calipers. This thing is pretty quick too.
So watch out all you AMG guys....Shes putting a Comptech Supercharger on next. :drive:
She'll probably be able to keep up with many of us
:D










I know this is a Benz forum, But We are lacking in the picture department, and I love driving her car.

Does it also have blue neons under the car that light up when she hits the NAAAWWWWS button? :rofl: Sorry, I couldn't resist :wall:

Seriously though, those cars are slick and they sure are damn quick as well. It'll be even more fun with the blower, since it'll start building boost from low rpm (compared to a turbo). Is it stick or auto?

the SI only comes in a six speed. It also has a factory LSD.

Def. no neons or nos.
The blower should do the trick though.

i think on street imports the turbo lag isnt that bad. the turbos commonly used are small enough where the boost builds up rather quickly...unless you wanan buy my Greddy T88h turbo and slap it into the civic? :drive:

Turbo lag is not that bad on a Honda. Just don't be dumb and get something like a T04E or bigger so you can have a mad huge turb0 y0!

Then again can it be considered turbo lag if you never had that power to begin with on a Honda? :)

:rofl: @ no power to begin with.

Mike, with that turbo on a stock Civic, you'll see pistons shooting through the hood ;)

Comptech did go under, not sure how you will get parts - even distributors can't get any parts. Just have to find a place with Comptech shit in stock.

I saw some people on a JDM forum that just recently got one. They make a kit specifically for the SI, I do think a turbo would be pretty cool as well. I think its like 3500 for the whole thing

Just got confirmation earlier today. Comptech did officially go under and their SC kits are no longer being manufactured. Get the kit NOW if one of their distributors have them in stock because you may never get one after they're officially closed down. :)

what the hell is a honda doing on a benz forum? :D lol! nice car by the way. doesn't jackson racing make a kit for that car? why not looking into getting that just cause the company is still running pretty strong? customer service wouldn't be an issue. that really sucks comptech went under, they sell relly good shit.
