heres a quick rundown of the mods ive done, that i remember

converted from cable actuated clutch to hydraulic actuated clutch installed 2 aluminum racing seats updgraded from 9.5" front brakes to 10.3" with integra type r calipers and hawk pads "tucked" all the brake lines and relocated the proportioning valve to under the dash removed stock seatbelts and installed 4 and 5 pont harnesses removed everything under the hood and repainted it removed all the front suspension and repainted it went from 15x6.5 wheels to 15x9 front and 15x8 rear removed weight

still lots more to come

going from a D16A6 to a D16Z6 ebay cold air intake (marginal performance improvement over the stock air box but lighter) going from stock open cable trans to lsd hydro trans

Nice! Any plans for HPDE or trackdays? I've looked through this before, but this thread has been quiet for too long! ;)

Any more in action pics? I can't get enough of civics with bulging wheel wells (how dirty...).

So Jelly!!!

Is that a D series!?! I am not a Honda guy at all, but I realy really want to pick up a cheap Honda with any 1.6 D series, slap some vitaras and an ebay turbo, throw some drag radials on it, and make it quiet and go troll people.

Im not even talking build it right or anything. I want to do it cheap and blow E36 M3 up constantly, racing anyone who will bite.

And it appears you're building a d series right and its making me sooo jelly!!!!

Is it sad that the thread title always makes me wonder if civics are passed on via intercouse? All I can see is sexually transmitted diseases instead of standard which is what std means in thos case.

Build is looking great. Making me miss my old crx.

This is a great build. A bit of a benchmark for my current build (thanks for the advice on that, by the way).
