Default Stage 4+ Mods on Turbo Civic. LSD, bodykit etc.

Previous Threads

Hey guys *Cough* Civic fans out there *Cough* Its been long since I've been active on tbhp due to some matters happening.

Alot has happened during this time. The civic went under a full 'sporty' restoration process.

Bodykit, CF hood, trunk and wing were added. BBK has also been installed.

These are all mobile pictures. The color is a deep blue in real and the cuts are more significant. The camera probably justifies 60-70% of what it is in real life

Let me know what you think about it. Stage 4+ mods are in order now which include a LSD, external wastegate config etc., which should be in place by end of next month. The turbo has been holding up pretty well since the install and the car has infuriated quite alot of 'high displacement' owners so to speak.

The external wastegate project is again a full diy. A tig welder has been ordered and I cant wait to lay my hands on it and find out the results.

The current turbo config has a downpipe of 1.9" dia. Can only be imagine the backpressure it generates taking into account even the stock piping for NA is wider than 1.9".

Fingers crossed for the project as its seeming harder than anything else I've laid my hands on. But the expected results are enough to take the risk.

Project pics to follow as soon as the parts arrive and the dismantling starts.
Have fun guys.. Cheers!

Man, just a 1.9" downpipe on a GT28R lol.

What LSD are you planning? And helical or clutch-type?

Thanks alot for the generous appreciation buddy.


PS: I'm not sure about the t-bhp policy is on linking youtube videos instead of attaching them. If allowed, here's a link to the acceleration:

Finally a thread on this car, I have always been curious to know the updates on this. I hope you keep updating it with the details. What happened to the K20 Plans ?? Needless to say the car looks HOT. Waiting to see more.

K20 plan has been delayed. I'm quite over my yearly allowance.
Plus I've been travelling somewhat so dont think Ill be finding time anytime soon to undertake that project.

Most of the parts have arrived at the US address. A couple of weeks to get them in hand now.

I read you sold your civic. Why did you do that?
