Hey Civicinfo.com;)

Bought my Type R CW 3 months ago and absolutely ..... love it to bits!! It had only done 260km when I picked it up at the Honda dealer.
Already bought a few mods which will not go on the car until spring when I plan on getting a lot more mods on the car:D Still saving up as much as possible until then.








Well this is my buildthread or whatever you would call it and here are the mods I already bougth for my Type R but not yet on the car:

LED lights for the back license plate:



18" Enkei PF01 lightweight wheels. Don´t know yet if I should stick with this colour or get them painted black or maybe gold?



Blue xenon look a like postionbulbs, not sure what you call them really?

These are the mods I plan on getting next spring.

CPL or Tegiwa exhaust manifold
Hondata flashpro
CPL, Tegiwa or HKS RSK intake
Etune
Eibach lowering springs or a KW V1 coilover.
This is pretty much what my budget will allow me to purchase this time. I thought long and hard about which mods to go for at first and have decided engine mods are my first priority:)

Hondata flashpro and CPL race manifold bought second hand. Waiting for it to arrive;)
Excellent news Rune. Things starting to get exciting now.
If you want to have your car remapped give me a notice. I have some excellent maps for this combination of parts.

N13L: I have thought about painting them gold since it would look awesome on a white car but I am not sure I am a fan of gold coloured wheels:confused:

Hi Paul

I was planning on using VIT for my Etune but I can maybe be persuaded to give another tuner a try.

What sort of gains/numbers can I expect with my mods from you with:

HKS RSK
HKS catback
CPL race exhaust manifold
Hondata flashpro obvious;)

Thanks

Rune

With this combination gains close to 30 horsepower and 35 Nm of torque are not uncommon.
When I tune the FN2 I usually try to maximize torque over a wide powerband as it`s a streetcar.

Thank you Culasse. I will think it over. There is still quite sometime before I receive the parts and get them fitted.

Impressive list of mods. :)

The car will feel like a totally different animal with that lot on. I don't have a manifold but have had a drive of a car with one fitted and it has far more mid range torque than mine. The CPL CAI gives a really good sound when on VTEC which is not far off that given by the HKS RSK - its really addictive.:)

Bet you can't wait now.

Think I will drive the car like this for the coming summer and next year start the next level of mods. But have to figure out what is the next step.
