Looks kind goofy to me. "souping up" a Civic to that degree seems stupid to me.

That's a fine example of a car modded right. The Integra Type-r engine is killer. I'm partial to the black wheels. I've painted the wheels flat black on lots of my cars. My friends kind of consider it a trademark of mine.

Why a Civic? Except for the fact that it's lowered like 3 inches, it's a purr-fect sleeper.

ness that is figuring that all the parts are brand new, unused, with box and wrapped. You cannot get that much money for used parts.

BLECH!

For $24K you could (give or take $1K) buy a brand-new Type R that would outhandle this horrid tricked-out grocery wagon. Aren't those rear drums? I shudder to think of the farty exhaust note that comes out of those 2 1/2 pipes.

ANTI sorry! For that price you can get a true sports car (Corvette yea I'm partial) also there are Camaros, T/A Firebirds, and lots of others that would spank it and catch all the girl's eyes. A type-r stock isn't going to hit 200mph either (your profile).

POS!!!

It is not even worth $24K, you never ever get what you put into a car, it is a money pit. It kicks butt on what other cars, other civics? What a waste!!! It won't be worth squat in a couple of years.

Zoson,

There is no way your car can do 240mph, the math does not work out, plus from you photo, you do not have the tires to do it, the RPM's would grenade your car, maybe 140+.

cause it shows what people can really do..not just waste money on some premanufacture pony.

if it aint for you it aint for you. geez. not everyone like hick trucks as opposed to rice cars. or not everyone likes vettes aka parking stools for the big monsters.

having an opinion is one thing. making it offensive is another.

1) The 200MPH is an inside joke left over from the days of Lozer

2) The car is lacking suspension but he could bolt on a Civic Type-R suspension (w/ 5 lug conversion) and then some aftermarket coilovers (Tein, Apexi) and outhandle Type-Rs.

3) The exhaust sucks because he wants to keep the sleeper look

4) Uhm yeah a Civic DX, he's not ricing it up w/ Type R stickers

im not a anti-ricer...
i am a ricer myself....
but would choose a ford f150 over a civic any day...
but i cant complain about some one adding $200 pedals to a 12 thousand dollar commuter car...it provides jobs for people...and ciculates economy...
hey...cant beat waking up on christmas and finding a fat muffler under the tree right?!

and plus...driving a "supped up" civic and driving a fat f-250 dulley diesel is just like wearing a baseball cap compared to wearing a cowboy hat(and some skin tight ricky martin jeans)...its all style...if the car gets you girls and makes you happy...then let it be...just stay in school and remember the ghettoness is just a fade...
everyones gonna grow out of it...
can you see your self in a few years taking your kids to soccer practice in your supped up civic?

if i had that money...to do all this to a car...
i would just buy a real race car...like a porsche or something...

and one thing i would definity spend money on is a nice sound system...

if you want speed...go strap a jet engine to your car...id like to see that one day
