    Sure, but that's only 50hp,
    The true powergains are when a Honda is stickercharged.

    It has to be one of those double decker "park bench" style wings for a true 120hp gain, otherwise, like the mirrors, 50hp.

    And you really shouldn't skimp on the rear wing. Afterall, downforce on those rear wheels on a front wheel drive car is critical.

    bwahahah! Yes, stickers do cause massive hp gains! It's true!

    I had my ricer stage with my last civic. Wheels, fart pipe, euro lights, etc. (Never spoilers or carbon though) and we all saw what happened to THAT car. I've learned the hard way that the best mods to make to a car are pure performance, and under the hood. You're much better off with a sleeper.

    Indeed. The one Civic I had was completely stock from the outside, other than being a little lowered and light-weight black wheels. Everything else was under the hood. 320whp, 253lb-tq.

    indeed...I'm saving up for some lightwegiht wheels (15s are stock so so buying tires!) and one day I hope to do both a manual trans swap along with an RSX type S k20a motor swap (gasp!).

    But those are dreams, and I'll most likely just buy a car that's fast stock...but it would be fun to take that bitch apart and swap a beast into it
