    This is my project car. My weekend car. My money pit and my track weapon. And it's awful, and beautiful, and I love it. Current mods: Suspension: Driftworks HSD Coilovers OZ F1 wheels 7J Nankang NS-2R 205/50/r15 EBC slotted brake discs (255/251) EBC Greenstuff Pads Chassis and Seat experience TR Lane Rollbar Takata 3" 4-point Harnasses with buckle LTEC FIA bucket seats (Cobra Monaco rebranded) Trunk popper wire Momo corse secondhand steering wheel Aliexpress Short Shifter NRG Short hub NRG Quick release Delrin Door bushings IL Motorsport Cupholder Center Console Driveline 1.8 Torsen diff 3.9 Engine Japspeed Alu Rad Skidnation Coolant reroute Suzuki Cappuccino bottle Silicone Hoses Ebay Turbo Kraken Manifold and Downpipe Stainless hoses for turbo cooling and oil feeds Epman Freddy BOV Ebay Intercooler Ebay Intercooler piping NGK BKR7E plugs Electronics Flip-up android radio Pioneer Speakers Pioneer underseat sub (behind seat) Innovate MTX-L Plus Wideband Innovate MTX-D Water Temp Gauge Innovate MTX-D Boost Gauge Central locking with remote MX5-tech Headlight controller LED Headlights ExtraEFI MS2 standalone ECU no-name serial port hub to USB Mods lined up for installation (Need Time and motivation): Skidnation Chassis Rails Ultra Racing Frog arms MAC Electronic boost control EPMAN FPR Oil Catch Can(s) IL Motorsport Sport Engine Mounts Toyota COPs Photo history (summarized) It all started as a stock MX-5 in a new and mostly empty garage. First mod, Coils. Quite a drop. Polished the car proper. Next up, wheels. Got these cheap cause they were bent (apperently). Got them straightened out recently, but got some different ones in the meantime. Those are migrating to a civic. Love this Rollbar time? Rollbar time! Makes it practical AF. That's a Server Rack. Add Seats, add bracing (rarely have this on, as I'm working on it too much). Also, those fresh new wheels I told you about. Happy LED Lights! Fixed the seat mounts. Highly recommend it. Skidnation mounts dó have slots, all the others don't. As you can see, it's 2mm off center. Sticker mods. Dropped and swapped the diff for a discounted Fuji unit. Big mistake. Get the torsen. Save up for it. 100% recommend this subwoofer placement. Depending on your passengers, get a second one. The rumblies are amazing. And invisible. Car broke down. Hat to take the valve cover off. Painted it. NOW WE'RE TALKING And then it was like this for a while. Most of 2019 really.When doing a turbo, order éverything before you break up the car. Do a mockup outside the car. PLEASE. I had to wait for fittings 2 weeks every time I discovered missing one. Ordered éverything double, so the next turbo build in the club would be way more managable. And it was. Kinda like this Making boost These are too big. They don't fit. I had to trim the rings so they could slot into each other. Feelsbadman. But then it all comes together. With a coolant reroute added in for good measure. Oh f**k yes. Oh f**k no. Coolant hose popped. Learned a LOT about stainless fittings. Towing your MX-5 Project with your Prelude Daily. This happened more than I'd like to admit. Love that Honda's butt tho. Fixed it. Boosted and zoomed at 0,5 bar for a while. Little bro's 1998 in the background. s**t. The fuji turned to crisps. Torsen Time! Bought one with a broken holder. Swapped my fuji out of mine, and this one in. Oh, so the brakes áren't supposed to make that kind of a racket all of the time? New calipers all around, new (cheap) pads in the rear. Are we leaking oil yet? We're leaking oil. (Current problem, hope it's not the pump/pan. Did the front main, but not the cam seals.) Wheels are straight now, with fresh rubber And welcome to today. Sneak peek of the daily deck.

    Hi guys, just a quick post to say we've been tidying up the forum a little so you may notice a couple of changes or three. We have removed the traders section as they were basically like a ghost town and there had been issues with one or two of them so have removed them for now. Their actual trader forums are still there, but are hidden from view for the time being. None were offering any discounts to our members or special deals so didn't see the point in them getting free advertising. We've added a new sectio to the Commerce bit (for sale and wanted) which is for any civic M cars or parts you see for sale on other sites that you think our members might be interested in. it could be your own parts or car listing on ebay or one you've found. We've also added a few forum category images that were missing so it looks a bit better. we've moved a lot of the info that was down the bottom of the forum to the side bar now, leaving the bottom of the forum free for our new latest topics feed so you can see at an instant any new topics that have been started. For the Civic5 Team, I've removed some of our sub forums from the team room as they were basically just there for legacy. The Team Room itself has been moved into the latest news section as it made more sense for it to be there rather than taking up space in its own section. Just wee changes but hopefully they'll make a difference to using the forum. I'm looking into the possibility of the home page being more like a blog page, kinda more like FB layout. Not sure how that will look, if its pants it won't be implimented! Would like to hear any suggestions members have on ways they think would make civic5 better, so just post in here and let us hear what you think. Dave

    Asked and asked and asked for years never found one. Then Dan who was asking for speedlines the other day put one for sale. Snapped it up straight away.

    Took me ages to find the early type VTiS alloy gearknob same as yours mate......and that was about 7 years ago! Well done on finding one now, cracking bit of kit that. I was sure I had one somewhere in the garage (had both the early one and the later one) but christ knows where it is now since we moved home lol
