@ The Saint: The header and strut braces for the Front and Rear are in my Car. I am just not getting the time to get them fixed, Will get it done soon and post the results soon.

Which one in the pic for the header will fit in the civic (the single one through out of the one which has single head with 4 and the exit), you bought the strut bar to fix for what, I mean for handling or bottoming down, in a rush as I am planning to drive down to delhi and want to order all of this from Thailand on the net, the shipment will take atleast 10 days to reach me.

The single one will fit, The exhaust manifold is integrated inside the cylinder head. Its basically not a header but a Pipe to eliminate the front Cat.

The strut will not help solve the bottoming out issue, For that you need Shocks or springs. This will improve handling.

You'll need an O2 CEL eliminator if you remove the cat.

It should lead to an increase an Power, Though I cant gaurantee anything, FE wont increase thats for sure. Struts will help reduce Body Roll and Flex. which will inturn lead to better handling.

I'm good.the car's doing good too .the only problem with the header is that it doesn't pass the emissions check by a slight margin.
Thats the sole reason of my concern and thats the reason i removed it.So i'm using a full cat back exhaust system along with the stock CAT CON pipe.

my car's running beautifully.17 inchers in the city and 15's when i'm out of the city.I keep it that way and its a pleasure to drive and to look at too.

It's such a sad situation. Two stroke autos cause so much pollution, but nobody gives a damn.

How was the noise with the full race header + exhaust system installed?

Well the noise was surprisingly not bad at all.It was slightly more than that with the stock system.Maybe its because of the silent yet free flow exhaust that i got made.I was particular that it should be as silent as possible yet being free flowing.Its a compromise but i'm happy.

and the sound with the header was different no doubt but it wasn't that loud.Though i would have loved that sound.It became more bassy than the present exhaust sound that my car has and mind it that it too is quite bassy.not the typical honda sound.


Well about the pollution ,i'd like to do my bit.i changed the full exhaust on my superbike and it cleared the emissions test.but this didn't.seems like honda is hugely relying on the cat con to clear the air.

Hi Guys

Here's a pic of my civic with 17's and a K&N Typhoon Kit. I have been hesitant to do more stuff on this since its my daily driver.

Have any of you guys used Koni sport or FSD? Any suggestions for Coilover's?

Also, anybody aware of someone who arranges EBC or Hawk brake pads and Powerslot rotors.

Look forward to some feedback.

Regards

Shyam

Navpreet, so you suggest a full system with the exhaust means full Free flow to be installed if I need to feel the actual gain? what is the gain like, do you feel the difference or its hardly any, also will it be worth doing it on a automatic though u have a paddle shift.

Have you done anything to your suspension like the coild springs etc etc.

Guys, someone needs to sort my low beam high watt bulb issue, still no solution to it, I dont want HID kit, want a yellow halogen bulb suggestion.

Cheers..
