Hey everyone! My names Mark, and I just purchased this 2014 Si with a little under 61k miles. I’m new to the community but not to Honda/Acura. Everything is bone stock and I don’t intend to change much. I have 4 boys so nothing crazy on this!

If anyone has any suggestions for maintenance I should do at this point, or even simple modifications that would be beneficial I’m open. I think my son has caught the bug!

Welcome!
One thing that's new to me, is changing transmission fluid. The maintenance minder tells you when, but if your not sure of the cars history, its a easy job.

The previous owner stated he flushed it around 50k I believe. I plan doing it myself soon, but need to catch up on some videos as I’ve never done it before. Any insight would be appreciated for sure!

Welcome. Damn, that's super clean. Yea, I'll do all the fluid stuff first. As for mods......... simple mods would be rear sway bar. Shoot, i'll even go with buy flashpro n get it tuned.

Appreciate the comments everyone! I’ll probably start with the trans fluid first, and move on from there.

Welcome man! Agreed that you should do a flush regardless of what the previous owner said. As far as simple mods a throttle pedal spacer does a lot for driving feel.

I’m thinking this weekend is time for a flush just for peace of mind. I’m not familiar with a throttle pedal spacer. Any link that might give some input? Appreciate it!

If you like practicing heel-toe downshifting a throttle pedal spacer will help by spacing the gas pedal closer to the driver and more in line with the brake pedal.
