Yeah I don't think the Civic modding scene is that strong in the UK, the vast majority of them I see around are used as Honda intended. E.g by old people or as family cars...

Plenty of FN2 upgrades out there.

I'll see how the TRW pads do in my 1.8 anyway before deciding to throw more money around!
We’re running the Mintex pads, all round, that came with the MTEC discs. No problems at all. Stops well even after repeated heavy braking.

What a nightmare, hopefully the person sorted you out!
They refused to take responsibility on the day (as a car on the other side of the road flashed them out 🤔) strange how a dash cam changes minds. My insurance was informed but not used, as their insurance company took full responsibility and today I got a call from my bodyshop who supplied the quote to take the car in.

Yeah, those dash cams can come in handy, I need to get myself one with the amount of idiots on the road.
I'm surprised it wasn't a write off. Good it's getting sorted!
New door, skirt, rear wheel arch and a lot of work on the rear quarter. I think the rise in secondhand car prices and a good bodyshop have saved the day, £3609 for the repair.

Got a few small bits today, so I ended up finishing the battery relocation and the air intake.
Need a Valve cover filter, or a plug to the silicone elbow.
Very similar to the first one I made

I used a Revotec fitting, an aluminium T connector, a silicone reducer and hose to connect both the engine breathers to the intake

Be careful of the coolant hose rubbing on the intake as it gets very hot. I added a aluminium hose connector to the coolant hose to enable it to be turned away from the intake

Don't use silicone coolant hoses, they shrink under the clips when hot and are forever leaking

Yours looks great! Thanks for the tips, I had to use a slightly different setup, because of the rrc+tb, the coolant hose is bothering me a bit, I'm going to wrap some termal wrap around it for now, it will creat about 1cm layer between the two for now.
Or maybe I can find a different coolant hose?

The air intakes to replace the foglights help a lot when the intake is in that position

The halo was something I fitted, but it's easy to get the air straight up to the filter from there

I used a BMC filter and an Injen Hydroshield to keep the filter clean.
I'm working on a different set up at the moment using an aluminium connector (makes more noise)
