Thumbs up New to Civinfo!

Hi guys, as the title shows I'm new to the site! I've just gone and bought my self a Milano red 2008 Civic 1.8 ES as I missed my EP3 Type R, which, regrettably I sold as I needed a 5 door (kids). I'm going to upgrade the car gradually. I've already bought a replacement front sports grille, Type R 18" original alloys and eventually colour code the arches etc. As I'm new to the 8th gen could anyone give me ideas of what else I could do? I don't want to spend thousands, but looking to make the car sportier, but no over the top, with big sports kit etc. I was thinking of buying a Typhoon induction kit but I've heard mixed reviews, so I'm a bit stuck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

Hello and welcome to mate!

I know people get HKS Kits and that seems to be the kit of choice tbh!

GP kit?

Hahaha I get wrong for the amount of time and money I spend on here and my civic..

But I got a genuine Skunk2 weighted gear knob and it totally changes the gear change... Especially if you get the short shifter adapter too!


SKUNK2 GEAR SHIFT KNOB 5 SPEED AND 6 SPEED

Fitted

I didnt take any photo's myself, it was cold and dark but I wanted to play with my new toy lol

I followed this guide think its got all the detail you need, only difference is this is for a type-R ive got a type-S and there is an extra cowell that needs trimming quite a lot so that the mech doesnt hit it, its really obvious where you need to trim the plastic away when you try to refit it, just keep trimming untill you can select all gears without restriction.
