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?
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.
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
im looking at an 85 hatchback with 198k and needs a clutch and pressure plate, parts included in price.. $450. it runs fine and has a few dents on the passenger side door, windshield is cracked badly but no other damage to my knowledge... any words of wisdom?
it has little rust from what i could tell, i saw it last night just after sunset. its a civic hatchback and it comes as is which includes the dewalt skil-saw in the front seat.. which is nice cuz i have a dewalt set already. ill try to get some pictures today or tomorrow
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)
theres a guy i know with a ls ready to go. you know b18 block and b16 head or vise versa, i always forget which way it is. i was under the impression that it was a 92 before i saw it but id like to do what i can with it. it has an ew1 1500, pre d series.
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.
