My first car was this ’00 Honda Civic Si, I’ll never forget it!
This project enabled me to further develop my understanding of the mechanics involved with modifying a car, as well as my tuning style.
My goal was to provide a solid example of how to blend a sutble, elegant, look with the fire in your pants kind of performance we all love.
The “stance” was far from aggressive, the wheels 100% factory and the only indication of any real bark was from the HKS Hi-Power exhaust.
The heart of the car was the Intergra Type R bottom end; I couldn’t explain how much of a difference those two tenths of a liter in displacement made in the car’s personality. The solid motor mounts and the Toda clutch kit always made driving the car feel special.
Here’s a couple shots of the car:
