Hello all, first off thanks for looking at my project thread. My car is a 1997 Civic Ex, manual, and has about 95k miles on its D16Y8. I am a senior in high school so my money to put in this car is kind of limited, I work a lot and a good paying job so I have a lot to spend on the car but I need to save for college at the same time.
Here is a picture of my car the day I picked it up, I bought the rims/tires from the dealer I got it from, they are Drag dr17s. I have the steelies for winter:
I’ve got work to do:

I have lots of plans for this car, I’ll list everything I want to do and its progress below. Any help you may have or advice or even just to say “nice” or “you suck”, feel free to post away. Like I said I’m only in high school so I won’t have a ton of work on this every day, it is a slow on going project.
As of right now this car is a all show and no go, but heavy mods are to come in time.
Current goals to tackle:
- Cruise control removal (DONE)
- Wire tuck, only mild
- Radiator overflow tank in bumper (DONE)
- Install my Greddy Evo2 (DONE)
- Paint skirts, lip, grill, and Si spoiler
- Repaint valve cover, I want to do something different, like have SOHC graffiti style with it like “radiating” different colors, I need another vc first
- I’ll add as needed
Current things I’m making progress at buying:
- Finish suspension setup
- Skunk2 springs (Bought)
- Skunk2 struts
- Blox camber kits
- Blox LCAs
- Integra GSR seats
- 99-00 Civic tails
- B16a2 swap in the summer
- Lower on Skunks in spring (not going to do 2.5” drop for winter)
- Battery relocated to trunk
I obviously didn’t list everything I’m doing since some are so small and not that great importance. We’ll see what I get for Christmas; my family got a list of stuff for my car that I want so after xmas I’ll have some stuff to keep me busy. I’ll make another post to this saying basically what I’ve done thus far that I will keep updated. Thanks for reading my thread, hope you get something out of this or can help me
