@Ace F355, the booty looks great. Where does the start stop button get installed on the dashboard?
What does the dyno chart say?

Pic #1 red circle is where it will be installed in my car.
Pic #2 is the close up pic of Dyno!

Pic #3 is how the engine start button should look like afterwards (along with beam leveling switch in my car instead of empty slot).

On the start-stop button: man, they look good.

On the dyno chart: wanted to know if it was for our (1.8L) Civics'. And it is! A 5.7 hp and 5.3 ft lb increase. That should definitely be perceptible.

Yep, they do look good but only for the bling! I know this because when you still need to put the key in, turn the key upto II position, how does it makes a difference to slightly twist the key OR press another button to start the car! But hey, the button is still a show off, right!

Right on!!! In GTO's Civic dyno thread, he actually has mentioned about the typhoon kit in detail. But I guess, I will need to install free flow exhaust and de-catcon my car to actually feel some difference!

If you observe the dyno graph closely, increased BHP and torque figures are actually on slightly higher RPMs than stock! That is mid-range taken care of, I want to improve my car's low-end grunt too!

@ACE

i might be wrong too but catcon is integral part of the exhaust manifold in civic which cannot be changes as its exhaust manifold is integral with the cylinder head.

this is what i could make out from looking at it and also the technical drawings of the same.

Catalytic Converter is removable in Honda Civic. I don't seem to find appropriate post links but if I remember correctly; m4ugr8, GTO, Dinu2506 and few others have catcon removed and replaced with straight pipes in their Civics!

EDIT: Found Dinu's post. Have a look.

Wow !Your Civic is looking hot.Superb looking. Alloys in matte black is also nice but wished it was in 16 inchers with lower profile tyres.Also nice clicks.

Awesome Pictures a real treat to watch. The nights shots in particular are more appealing to me though the day time shots stands equally as well.

Looks great! I particularly like the OEM alloys on matte black! Is it a DIY, or did from a paintshop? Just wondering, how matte black on alloys would look like in white civic!

About the calipers, won't the paint come off after sometime? I have seen other putting covers (red and yellow) on it.

Nice, with capital N. Between the first set of night pictures and the next set by Pranav7, the front logo/badge has changed to red background isnt it? Smart with capital S.

Edit: Rears ones too!
