This is my 1990 Civic si. My father and I have been working on the car for almost 8 years now - a labor of love so to speak.

Major modifications include: A 1997 Integra Type R motor. It has Koni's all around, Ground Control Coilovers (thanks to Sam Strano & Chris Shenefield for helping with the setup). HF front bar, Progress 22mm rear. Strut braces: Neuspeed in the front, DC Sports in the rear. 1993 Acura Integra rear disc brake conversion. Stainless brake lines all around, Hawk HP+ pads, cross drilled front rotors. Runs Kumho V710's on the track, and Nitto 555r's in a straight line.

The car mostly sees autocross competition (as a SM entrant), but also will occasionally make a high 13s pass at the drag strip.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great, with it being so light and propelled by an R motor that thing is probably a BLAST to drive. What spring rates are you running?

We're running 450F and 400R and have found good success with it. Its not as extreme as it could be, but then again the car actually sees some street driving occasionally. Our next step for the car will probably include some wider rubber (255f, 225r) and a more aggressive alignment, which will likely follow the specs on the Redshift civic. Yes, the car is amazing to drive and a lot more fun than it should be. We've considered doing a JRSC on it as well, but are slowly doing research on the most appropriate setup. Thanks for looking!

I bought one of these new and it was the best car I've ever owned! Enjoy it; I certainly did.
