Question Honda Civic Mods

For sometime I have been deciding between Skoda RS and Honda Civic MT. I finally settled for Civic coz of the obvious 3 lakhs difference. I am wiling to spend 2 - 2.5 lakhs on moding the Civic into Mugen Civic Dominator. Could any one please give me pointers on how to achieve it and the approx cost ( I stay in bangalore).

As per the thread on the Autocar Performance Show in Mumbai, the Mugen Civic costs 8,00,000/-. And is available only through Linkway Honda, Mumbai. This also voids your warranty.

It's 8lacs over & above the cost of the Civic right? And what all equipment do you get in that kind of money?

if its cosmetic mods why does it void the warranty.
and according to an article in the ACI,it doesnt void the warranty because after all mugen is honda's subsidiary.

6 lakhs just for cosmetic mods!!! I thought Civic Dominator has a 300bhp ( supercharger ).
Is this the actual Civic Dominator ?

An addon mugen kit made in polyurethane based on the dominator is available in bangalore, i suggest you call up psycho for the details. Here is a pic of the same, includes the front, back and sides...

cheers,

How about a nice B16A engine... 168 bhp, or a B18C at 200 bhp, bone stock? They should be within your budget, I would think.

Wouldnt he be better off going in for a supercharger kit on the R18 engine instead? Doesnt make sense to do an engine swao on a brand new car, rather get an older generation civic and do the swap on it instead. What say?

mugen kits in india are just way way over priced...if its 8lakhs over and above i suggest you go to 1 of the tuners maybe...probably viper...you could get it done at half the cost for engine mods..and cosmetic iam sure if you wait a little upna guys will come out with much cheaper kits...

Thanks, the body parts look great, but I must say it does not really match up to the domainator look. Maybe a bright red civic would look better ( sad that Honda does not have bright red civic). Are those 18'' alloys ? Also since I am new to the forum, could you please pass on psycho's contact ( was wondering if ur the one since your handle name is 'autopsyche' )

Sorry, could not understand the engine mods. Could any one please explain in a bit detail ( like turbo chargers, BHP etc ).

I Agree with Arush, Doesnt makes sense to swap old gen B,H series engine on a New 2006 Civic.
Let the Civic get a year old then there will be lots of option open may be a K20/24 Hybrid Swap.
starting at 220bhp.

@ v1p3r only B18 type r are 200 hp others are like 185HP
