1st I'm currently working with a company to fit a bigger blower on to the 9th gen civic, I know, not much detail, but when it gets closer to completion I'll have a grand reveal!

2. Im in the process of sourcing a Full Mugen Front end conversion for my Civic, trying to go all legit so my joureny will be tough, but its gonna be worth the ride!

But for now, here is a updated photo from a Charity Car show!

Update 8-14-2018

The thread is not dead!

Life has finally caught up to me with a promotion to a supervisor at my job, but after getting used to my new job title i finally have time to post my build again!

So to Update:

My build direction has changed a little, i was unable to source a legit MUGEN kit so i have decided to go with a Legit Modulo Front lip to be paired with a OEM Asian Front Bumper, both pieces are currently in paint to be matched to my vehicle color so look fowards to pics of that!

That also Includes:

- OEM Asian front grill
- OEM MODULO Front Lup
- OEM Asian Front Bumper
- OEM Asian fog lights
- OEM Asian center air dam ( its basically a dress up piece that covers the massive hole in the middle of the asian bumper)

Other Parts i have Currently Sitting are:

- Mishimoto Racing Thermostat
- Project Kics Lug Nuts
- OEM Asian sliding cup holder center console
- Mugen Oil Cap
- OEM Asian Hazard Switch
- Torque Solutions Exhaust Hangers

I picked up a new sponsor in the form of Mishimoto! I'm now part of #teammishi

I have decided to change wheels from my Work's to a set of polished Mugen GP's in 18x7.5 +48, I already test fit them and they look excellent, tires to be purchased this week and hopefully installed this weekend!

My new supercharger kit is coming along slowly, i have some pictures but have been requested that i do not show them until i have the final product in hand! so stay tuned for that!

Shout Out to baby_blue_64 for all the work he did sourcing my legit asian parts

Here are some teaser shots to look at while i get better/professional pictures!

Enjoy!

Looking good! Do you plan on running spacers with those wheels? I would think you could run at least a 15mm, probably even a 20mm.

Good to see people still documenting their builds here.

Car is coming along nicely!

Subscribed for pics.

How hard was it to source the bumper and lip?

Ya i think some spacers would give Aloha a more aggressive fitment,
The car still looks great but with spacers the fitment would be a bit tighter

Thanks man!

look up baby_blue_64 on IG, he sourced all the asian bits for me from his vast network of sources, It wasn't cheap, but well worth it knowing that they are quality OEM Parts from Honda

See i wanted to run spacers, but i got friends on both sides of the fence

One side says "Running spacers is dangerous!" and the other side says "They are fine"

I've heard horror stories, but have seen the results of spacers when run properly, so I'm kind of on the fence

I didn't mean for clearance of anything, rather aesthetics. I just think it looks good when the wheels and tires are flush with the fender lips. To each their own though.

Spacers, when properly installed, are as safe as running no spacer. You just have to make sure you run the correct hubcentric spacer for your application. In our case we have 64.1mm hubs. I run 20mm hubcentric spacers and also run hubcentric rings on the wheel side as my wheels are 73mm hubs. This is a good read here. I know it's a Mustang website, but these guys are actual engineers:
