If this is the red then ask Mauto to give you a carbon fiber sheet for the roof.It'll rock your car.

I have a few suggestions for you, get a free flow, conical air intake, a completely new and better suspension (for your 18"ers), porting and polishing of head and throttle body. Do these things 1st, get use to these then go for over boring the engine to 2.0L, and add a turbo or a supercharger. The first set will increase around 50 bhp and 50 Nm of torque and really increase handling, the second set will increase around 100 bhp and 100 Nm, so thus you have a really fast and awesome looking civic, one of its kind in not only your hydrabad but the whole of india, but i would suggest something else, like what GTo suggested, get a EVO X, you cant imagine how much you will love it, but if this is what you want then do this.
Also about warranty, i would suggest doing any engine mods only after the expiration of the warranty, actually even body or ICE, dont no these honda guys.

Sir,I need not convince any one here.I am not a troll as you said and I have some respect.If you feel that I am troll,then you need to report to the mods instead of hijacking my topic.

No bro.Not making any changes to increase BHP.Navpreet has advised me a mod which gives perfect enjoyment in driving and I will go for that.my civic gives 9-10 kmpl with my crappy driving,i cant disturb the fuel efficiency at any cost.When I made the topic,i specially mentioned about the engine and small alternations also disturb honda's warranty,not bothered about it though.


For others who think that i am troll,I need not prove myself to any one.I got what I wanted and whom should I contact.I take this as an insult.

and both of my threads,ICE they will be closed by the mods.

I will come back with the pics once when I am done with my modification,then I can get back my respect.

modifications should be in tolerable limit by the engine.no problem with mileage getting down,but modification should not crank up my engine or performance.

You seem to be contradicting your own statement.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Killer advice dude, totally killer. Why don't you ask him to plonk an accord V6 engine. With your kinda performance increases, it should easily outrun a Veyron

@crazydiablo and BBS:

Let's give this guy a break, I don't think he really knew what kind of drop in FE he'd be expecting with engine mods, I guess when he posted "no problem with mileage getting down" he probably thought that FE would drop by 1 or 2 KML, now after reading through some posts he's probably realized that he can expect it to drop a whole lot lower.

Let us remember that no matter how much money a person has or spends, things like FE still matter at the end of the day. It's just practical. And we all know that even today in India in the premium segment of things, Diesels rule all, so why would someone going in for a Range Rover or BMW 7 or a S class go for a diesel? But they do for the same reasons mentioned above.

@Aneesh, dude read through a lot more threads on this as well as other forums, educate yourself before you jump into anything, else you're surely asking for a mugging.

Sorry but you're planning to install 2XA6000Gtis in your car? Where? Have you seen these amps? This will help you visualize.

If you have a Civic, you'd probably need to buy a little caravan to carry the amplifiers, lol.

And they're both MonoBlocks. And will not run off your car battery, you'll need a new alternator or 2 or 3 and a lot more than your civic battery can give you.

You'd need an electrical system that looks like this:

You cannot run 2 woofers and 2 sets of components off this.

You'll need another amplifier for the components.

P.S. 2 of those amplifiers, woofers, components, alternators, new electrical system, damping, super (almost industrial) cabling and you will have used up most of your 25 lacs.

Don't do it. This is not the right thing for your Honda or you.

Bharat, start off by reading this thread (ARTICLE: How to Modify / Tune your car) in detail. Then, search through the many Civic mod threads on the forum. For the kind of power bump you are looking at, get in touch with Karthik from Race Dynamics too.

thats a nice budget for these mods. you should expect a 30-40bhp gain after getting a remap, a free flow and a high flow air filter. for the exhaust there are a couple of options, you could either get a bolt on one from a big company or get a custom made one. a few of the options in mumbai for custom made exhausts is vipers guy afzal or automech. for the remap you can get one from racedynamics but their service is mumbai apparently still should be improved. another option is zakie of tuned i-chips who flies down from sri lanka often, his dealer in the city is viper.
