    Default Just got my first civic

    Hey I just got my first honda civic. It's a 95 DX EG8 with a D15B7 in it. And I'm totally clueless to the car. All I know is that it's slow and that it clean except for the minor things I got to fix (tailight, passanger side mirror, small dent in rear passanger door, and window cable in rear driver door broke). I got the car for about 500 bucks with only 135k miles on it. Im currently located in Columbus, Ga where I work a PTAP. A automotive shop, that sales rims, exhuast, intakes, and other various parts. But what I was wondering is to meet some people to help lead me in the right direction with making this car even cleaner and a little bit more quicker.

    Damn, nice deal dude! I'll give you $600 for it! Lol, j/k. What's your plans? Sounds like your job should benefit your build progress a bit too.

    Thanks the funny thing is that when I ha my 240sx. I hated honda, but now I'm starting to love the car and more everyday. I only wish it was a little cleaner and faster, I'm getting it lower down at the end of oct with some cheap coilover from work and adding my gold and chrome 17" ROTA GT-3.

    A little qucker is all its going to get- I know- I have the b7. i focued on suspension first and that has really been a help on the car.

    What is your budget and what do like when it comes to civics? need some ideas before we can give you suggestions- I know what I like but it may not be what you like.

    I honestly just want to be able to out run or keep with stock 240sx's with mild modications done to them. I'm not tring to be super fast. Mainly just quick. My budget is going to be around 5k going into the car motor and maybe 1500 on the outside. Then maybe with in the next two years maybe a supercharger kit.

    If your going to lower it spend money on some good suspension! Like people say do cheap once you will be doing it again do it right the first time priceless.

    I agree. You can pick up a good set of lowering coils for fairly cheap.

    i say full coilovers. or either a good combo like ground control and koni yellows. but thats money!

    i just got h&r springs, rides smooth as hell, but i hate not beign able to lower it more when i want too.

    clean car tho, seems like a good project.

    I just found some coilovers on ebay that are made by by skunk2 for 719 or best offer. So I'm going to offer about $400 and see if they bite on it. Hopefully they will cause this place have a shit load of them in stock and it looks like they just want them gone. If all else fail I'll probably go with springs. But should I get the wheels first or the springs?

    I guess that's what I get for using the stock shocks. Funny thing is that all of us that work at my shop have our cas slammed and atleast one if not all the shocks are blowen. But I get new one installed tomorrow.
