Picked up a TRD battery tie down and the person who sold it to me gave me free TRD sound changers. Now I need a battery that will actually fit this.

Got the black OEM clutch cylinder cap that comes in the new cars to replace the ugly and beat yellow one.

Picked up an APEXi drop in filter and Nsidius Industries brake light from a fellow member on the forum. The filter and the TRD green tube is a bit too loud so I've placed the blue sound changer in its place.

Brake light looks good and my car is finally "legal" after removing the third brake light from the rear window.





Edit: Just changed out the 4th brake light bulb to an LED. Colour looks similar to what my tail lights are but I have lost the brake light function and it's basically just a fog light now. Looking into buying a dual function LED make it a brake light again


Don't know which mod to do next because they are so many things that bother me on this car.

Went to an 86 meet and someone gave me their trunk liner for free. I could hear the trunk creaking from the wing at speeds so I wondered if this would quiet it down. The noise still comes through the cabin but it's a lot quieter and a bit less noticeable.

Just purchased the OFT V2. Kind of an impulse buy but I'll use this for now until and see how it goes.



Review:
Installed the stage 1 tune and I must say it's different but can't really say it's much better. Throttle response is a smidge better, engine definitely feels smoother, idle doesn't fluctuate as much when A/C is on. Power wise I can't really feel a difference but maybe I have an insensitive butt dyno.

I'll give it some more time and see if the tune evolves since I've read that it takes a while for the tune to become more apparent.

I purchased a Scosche Magicmount to mount the OFT and it works ok so far but the adhesive isn't the best so I may have to look for another alternative. The dash isn't made of the best material for adhesive to stick to.

I also got a OBD2 extension with a built in power switch so I can keep the OFT plugged in at all times and turn it on/off with a flip of a switch to prevent it draining the battery. I mounted it on the side of the steering column so the cables are out of the way and the switch is in an easy spot to reach.

Picked up some Cusco ramps and some MTEC shift springs. This will make working on my car so much easier since my jack never clears the front, rear or the sides and raises it higher than wooden blocks would.

Raised the front of the car by 1.5cm to try to match the height in the rear and regain the roll center. At the track my wheel would destroy the wheel liner and scrape the chassis so hopefully I will have enough suspension travel.

Car is definitely more responsive in terms of turn in and the steering feel gives me more confidence when it comes to higher speed turns.

My girlfriend told me that my car looks weird now because she's used to it being lower From the front it definitely looks a lot higher but from the side you can hardly notice. If it really bothers me I'll just raise my car when going to the track and lower it when I'm just driving around town.

Sold the Civic and forced to daily the FR-S for now. First day bringing it to work my coworker hits my door handle with another door lol.


Installed the shifter bushing and the shifter springs and it made it a bit nicer. I'd say the shifts are smoother and the shifter feels more solid. The shop I took it too said they would recommend this setup over the Perrin+Whiteline combo.

My exhaust also took a lot of beating from scraping since GReddy decided to place the flange on the lowest part of the exhaust. Welds on the midpipe cracked on both sides so that was repaired and hopefully it won't happen again.
