hi, i'm new to this forum
i wanted to ask what mods are there available for a 5door 2.2 ex civic?
i've already had it remapped and was thinking of the suspension next, but i have the 18" storm alloys so not sure if i need to do anything slightly different or if wheel spacers might help improve anything?

so any advice would be much appreciated :D

What brakes are available? Its hard to search for mods as the first thing the pops up is typeR parts and takes a while to scroll through to see which ones are for the 2.2
Also not sure if the typeS 2.2 is different then the 5door version.

Lts of options....depends how deep your pockets are.

Rear tracker is wider on the type S.
Diesel has different shock spings at the front.
FN2 has different front brakes.

FN2 brake options fit all models but will require spacers or lower ET wheels in some cases.
Splash guards will need reworking or removal.

If you want improvements on a budget then....
FN2 calipers/carriers/pads/disk (yellowstuff or ds2500).
Motul rb600 fluid
Braided stainless steel flexible brake lines.
Eibach 2.2 springs.
FRS.
[+ Optional Rear anti roll bar + polybush kit + ridgid collar kit if you want to tighten things up a bit more]

That will give you a noticable improvement on a limited budget.

If I got eibach springs would I need spacers? I was told its best to get them.
Spacers give you a wider track and slightly lower cente of gravity with OEM wheels.
So it all helps but isnt essential unless you fit a big brake kit
A lot do it just for aesthetic reasons.
