for 6 grand, you should be able to buy a nice un rusted and abused 92-95 civic hatch, and finish it with a turbo and suspesnion

if you spend over 2 grand on a 92-95 hatch you are getting ripped off

in the USA, 2 grand anywhere for a clean hatch is a good price. around me, a good hatch is 1400-1900,

Hey, I was wondering if I should purchase a 2006 Civic Si muffler for my 1996 Civic Ex. I already know that there aren't any performance upgrades, just sound. What I'm unsure of, is of it will bolt up with minor to zero problems. My current muffler has a leak and I think the Si muffler is a steal. What do you think?

must be modified to fit, but sounds great.

if you want slightly better sound and a direct bolt on, find a 99-00 si muffler

The deal or the audible sound is great? haha, and unfortunately I don't think I'd be able to find a 99-00 muffler anytime soon. And if it's just minor modifications to get it to fit, is it worth it? Or should I just keep it stock? I'm not planning to have the car any longer than a year or two tops, but mufflers even stock I know are expensive, so I figured I'd splurge and enjoy a better exhaust note. :)

Thanks again

re phrase lol


2006 si muffler sounds great, must be modified to fit. It will be treated like an aftermarket muffler, it must be cut and adjusted to fit


the 99-00 muffler will sound SLIGHTLY better but will be a perfect fit.

ebay.com
"bosal civic"

find your parts by year

good luck on the hunt :btu

Okay, I was thinking, should I just go with a cheap muffler from ebay that should bolt right up? Like, an axle back? Has anybody ever got them? Are they worth it? My muffler is leaking, and I don't want stock. :b Thanks

sounds good

if it only has a little rust, just make sure its in a repairable spot. 85 hatch would be fun as hell to drive if it had something like a d16z6 swapped into it. mY brother had a fully stock 87 Si hatchback and that thing was peppy as fuck before he blew the motor (not changing oil enough lol)

its a carberated D series, prolyl a 12 valve 1.5 liter

not a whole lot can be done, unless you can source the dual weber kit. adds a shit load of torque and horsepower

I picked up a 94 Civic EX for a good price, but ofcourse with a good price comes some work. Im going to work suspension first. Im putting in a new rack, and while im doing that im going to put on a master bushing set (lower right controle arm bushings are bad so i might as well do them all Energy Suspension Bushings) I also need to do brakes, and struts. I was just going to replace the struts, but was wondering if i should just do springs also. I am not going to race, and this is my daily driver, but i like to tinker, and I dont want to go OEM. I also dont want to lower.. What are your opinions on the four items below, and will they hinder me in future mods in any way, or a good start? Is that a good spring strut combo? or should i just stay with the OEM springs and those struts? I have read the reviews, and they all seem good. Looking for opinions on a street setup daily driver highway mostly.
