Here is a thread for you to post what you got under the hood. What you plan on doing, and also to write a testimonial about a product you have used...

Under the hood of my beater 96 Civic CX Hatchback is a B16A2 (1.6L DOHC VTEC) from a 99 Civic Si with nothing major done to it. Just an AEM short ram intake, Exedy Stage 1 Racing Clutch and a 7lb Clutchmaster flywheel. I have a cheapo header to put on that my mechanic gave me but it is sitting in the basement right now. The car also has a custom muffler shop pipe with some no name muffler on it. Not too loud and doesn't sound half bad either. That's bout it performance wise on my piece. Nothing special but I like it. Gets me from point A to point B at a decent speed.

Mine is a basic sr swap. (Not complete at the moment)

Redtop sr20det motor, trans, ecu

Cometic metal hg
arp head studs
Exedy hyper single clutch/flywheel
Greddy fmic (from an integra kit) probably going to sell and get a vspl
Greddy hot pipe
J30 vlsd rearend

I still need:

Walboro 255lph fuel pump
Wiring service done
bov
intake
Ignitor chip
Boost controller (because 7 lbs isn't enough and the ecu will handle my greediness)

I won't go into my upgrade plans because that would give it away. :?

you wanna know the kickass go-fast set-up my brother created on my last car was? I didn't do a damn thing to this car cause I had no money to. My brother put all this crap on. For 2 years I drove it like this before wrecking.

1995 Honda Civic EX Coupe (EJ1)

D16Z6, totally stock, even the clutch and flywheel except for:
APC Short Ram
APC Muffler
APC Strut bar
Some kinda coil-overs. Hell if I know what they actually were.
When it was his:
17" Enkei wheels (I think RS-E's but I'm not sure) on some wore out Kumho Ecsta Supra's
When it was mine:
Stock 14" Steelies with covers on some cheap ass, bald ass, Regal Sport Challenger tires (or Challenger Regal Sport, not really sure)
then
15x6" 1997 Acura Integra GS-R Mesh wheels with nice BF Goodrich Traction T/A tires (currently on my hatchback)

wow my brother was a ricer.

Don't get me wrong. I loved that car and I wish I still had it. I just wish I had it with my hatch's setup instead. Thank God my brother now knows that all that crap was worthless. He's helping me with my current bucket and it's nothing but quality parts now.
