The bottom-line here, and I cannot shout out any lesser about it, is that none of these mods alone can really impact the performance of the car in a larger manner. A set of mods that have been done sensibly, without going overboard and keeping the limits of the car in mind go hand-in-hand in giving the best performance for your car. They work synchronously to give your car the best combination of factors for it to perform stellarly.
This is the reason why I put in so much effort into research about each mod, and I may totally go wrong sometimes too. It's a matter of trial and error, but more trial than error, and the results of these efforts is now visible. The Crio is functioning as efficiently and optimally as I would love it to.
I know this is MODIFICATIONS thread, but have a look at this number to see what the Crio can do, when driven sedately. THIS is an example of a well-tuned car, that can transform into a monster at it's owner's beckoning! A sub-10 second monster that reaches it's top speed in 15 seconds, and then, when driven with velvet slippers, gives you, THIS!

I am hunting for a resonator. Was considering Magnaflow and Vibrant. Both seem to be of similar design. BBK looks like another viable option and looks like more than usual steel wool packed pipe.Wish you could do a better weld for a cleaner look.

Do I see exterior reservoir coilovers? Damn this car is turning into a beast. I know this car is meant to be a daily driver for your wife but the same setup focused for the track would embarrass quite a few cars on the track.

I have ordered the Bilstein B14 from the UK.
I expect delivery after Christmas. Sometime around next week.
The bilstein b14 is height adjustable and I intend to keep the suspension at mid height , ie slightly lower than stock.
Also, the legendary road handling and ride quality of the B14 will be put to good use in the Honda as the stock suspension is frankly, pathetic.

Owning a car with a powerful engine and not knowing where it makes its best power is sacrilege. Hence, the other day, while browsing on AliExpress, I came across an interesting tool. It's called the AUTOOL. It connects via OBD port and rests on the dashboard quite inconspicuously, but visibility in the day and night are very good. It gives out a lot of useful statistics, and could be termed a poor man's head-up display, since it's mounted so close to the windscreen and doesn't encourage you to take your eyes of the road. Also note, that I do a have a HUGE 10.1 inch screen running my ODB via bluetooth, but that is pretty distracting as the eyes have to be taken off the road to read the bevy of information 'Torque,' throws up. The AUTOOL X50

This indeed cute little device you got. I heard that display color can be customized, which I think is important to match display with OEM dash cluster colors. Also does it give alarm on high coolant temperature and overspeed?

I have been searching for proper solution for engine overheat early alarm for my civic. Apart from rise in temp gauge, civic does not give any kind of audio/visual warning to drivers, which I feel is kinds scary. Once my condenser motor went kaput and i did not recognize engine temp rise for quite some time. If Autool X50 gives audio warning for such triggers, I think it would be perfect solution for my problem.

Thank you for reminding me that this exists somewhere! I will have to dig it up from my storage. The convenience of having an Android head unit and an OBD bluetooth adapter makes this a slight luxury.
I think it does have an indicator for engine overheat etc, but you cant change colours.

Also is this device available in India? I have been trying to get it from Aliexpress, but last 2 orders never reached here. Though I got full refund for same, I am still wondering where I can get this unit.

If you are coming to Mumbai, you can give me a day's notice and try out the unit I have. It's plug and play, and you can try it on your car.

Hi Frank, very impressed with the dedication, thought out mods on your crio, congratulations on the same.
Just wanted your review on the simota air filter,
I have a honda civic with a k&n typhoon kit, i need to replace just the filter, it gave way after two years or so,(the piping is fine)
I have an option of a k&n v/s simota, price difference is negligible
Any inputs would be very helpful, I'm not looking at any numbers on the dyno
Im looking for slightly better pickup, and a slight growl, (not very high db to disturb my neighbourhood &#128513 so no end can, or exhaust
Thanks in advance

Sorry to hijack your thread frank,
Bit the bullet
As suggested by you,contacted Jayant from motor manics, bought the Simota Urethane filter bolt for civic
Absolute clean dealing,didn try and oversell anything, and suggested the right filter according to my usage
Took me literally 20minutes to install it
And what a pleasure to drive it was
Car isn stalling even at second gear from speeds of 7-10kmph, and the grunt is heard after 3k rpm which makes it perfect when there is family aboard the car
