you might wanna get some caps for the AC, it will eventually run out, the caps help seal it ( or so i heard)

Welcome to the site. Not a bad looking car I guess. Lose the wing and the taillights, then make it fast. TT LS1...doooooooooooo it. BTW, that fuel rail is stock.

those caps wont hold the amount of pressure your AC has, but it makes it easier to service the AC system later on when they are nice and clean from being covered.

Holy crap that's a sweet ride. I like the wing and taillights, Bro.

On a side note... why do they even make Camaros (or Mustangs for that matter) with V-6's in them? So gay. I'm a Ford guy that became a Civic owner last week. Of course my EX isn't nearly that sweet, cheater.

I am a GM guy (in my driveway is my 91 RS Camaro, fairly quick) and then my CivTegra (I customs fitted a Acura Integra front end onto my Honda Civic) so I have the fun of both worlds and I love it although I am selling my camaro but hey you gotta do what you gotta do when money is tight you know.

Anyways I think you need lose the wing, add another muffler to fill the other exhaust cut out, and debadge it other then the "h" but get rid of the "civic" and the "ex"

thanks for all of the input, guys.

hondacivica: i paid $7000 for it, it is a 2000 with 70k miles on it.

as far as the lights and spoiler go, they're probably going to stay for a while. i'm buying go before show, but if i see a really good deal on some tailights or a more "appropriate" spoiler, i might swing it.

first on the list though is a new cam (i'm thinking about a crane stage II) and a complete accell ignition. i also want to find a good power handling set of pistons and rods with the stock CR and displacement (damn CA emissions laws) for my next three day weekend.

i might also get some NoS/typeR/NiSMO stickers and a vornado. and one of those ebay chip things.




calm down, everyone. that was a joke.

instead of throwing forged internals at that motor, you might want to weigh the pros and cons of doing an engine swap instead.
