You'd probably get more input if this was in the General Civic Talk thread... All the questions you asked have been asked before by numerous people. Try the search function, it works well.

Tune? Are there any major mods done to the car that you would need a tune for?

no i dont have any major mods done but i just call it tuning instead of upgrading cuz when u put a mod onto a car, u really r tuning it right there to a different setting with the new mod u put on

Tuning has a specific meaning when upgrading your car. It's nice that you have an explanation for the way you use it, but you're going to have to explain yourself to every person who hasn't heard it already. When most people see 'tune', they're thinking of putting different mappings into the fuel management system.

for sure, i didnt realize there was such a technical way for defining tuning, i thought it was just a broad definition for editing the settings on everything (engine, tranny, etc.) well cool then i guess i should ask, wut good mods am i looking for?
