Helle Civinfo! I am back:-)

Hello boys and girls

Just wanted to say hello. I used to have a FN2 CW Type R but sold it with big regret.

Now that I am gonna become a father for the first time this June I sold my Leon Cupra and just picked up a Honda Civic fn1/fk2 1.8i Vtec 5 door sport from 2006

Pics will follow and more info. Needs a good polish for sure.

Rune

Thanks guys It is good to be back though it is not a type R this time. But the 1.8 little engine with 140ps isn't bad at all Most importantly it is a Honda.

Did have slight problems with the car after picking it up. The seller had just taken out his amplifier and subwoofer in the trunk just before I got there. I didn't think anything of it, until after I drove away in the car after buying it, it stalled and all sorts of lights went on in the dash. Turned out he hadn't disconnected the wire from the battery so there were still going power through them and they were loose in the trunk. Just glad it didn't fry the ECU. Quickly I disconnted the power cable from the battery. Ended up getting a new battery today as it turned out the battery was dead.
So not the best start but should be sorted now. Probably should have caught the error myself but unfortunately I didn't.

Other than that I need to give it a full service before the modding can begin

I know this is the introduction section but could anyone please tell me if it is safe to install a CAI or SRI on the 1.8i Vtec Motor? Thinking of AFR and flat spots.

Injen CAI or SRI
Catback
Coil overs
All the ugly side skirts and lists painted in the same color as the car NHB
MR JP lights
Carbon dash
Rota wheels
Complete polish
Team Heko wind deflectors
Skunk2 gear knob
Leather gaitor
And so and so on

Will make a build thread but the car is in need of some real TLC at first.
