Ordered following cosmetic and mechanical upgrades for my Shark yesterday.
1. K&N Typhoon 69 series SRI
2. Genuine Red 'H' front and rear emblems from Honda, Japan
3. Genuine Honda 'Type R' emblem for the rear
4. Genuine Honda Type R key fob (with red H logo)
5. Genuine Honda Type R Engine Start button with trim kit
6. 'H' emblem for steering wheel
Received everything I had ordered to carry along back to India this time! Most of the items are genuine Honda parts except the 'H' steering logo! Can't wait to put them on my car.
Total cost - CAD 580
EDIT: Second pic is K&N box opened up with Dyno chart and installation instructions with pics!

Yep, they do look good but only for the bling! I know this because when you still need to put the key in, turn the key upto II position, how does it makes a difference to slightly twist the key OR press another button to start the car! But hey, the button is still a show off, right!

Right on!!! In GTO's Civic dyno thread, he actually has mentioned about the typhoon kit in detail. But I guess, I will need to install free flow exhaust and de-catcon my car to actually feel some difference!
If you observe the dyno graph closely, increased BHP and torque figures are actually on slightly higher RPMs than stock! That is mid-range taken care of, I want to improve my car's low-end grunt too!

i might be wrong too but catcon is integral part of the exhaust manifold in civic which cannot be changes as its exhaust manifold is integral with the cylinder head.
Catalytic Converter is removable in Honda Civic. I don't seem to find appropriate post links but if I remember correctly; m4ugr8, GTO, Dinu2506 and few others have catcon removed and replaced with straight pipes in their Civics!
Okay friends, some pictures to keep the thread going! I will post the details of my super busy last week later. These pics were clicked on India Gate while roaming late night on Delhi steets. Quality isn't very good but enjoyable none the less. Enjoy the pics till then!!!
