Hey everyone!

Figured I'd start a build thread. Build is a slow work in progress, mainly because I'm researching as I purchase items, so here we go!


When I picked up the car from the dealership. 2013 DBP FB6. Fell in love with it right away. Her name is Claire.





First mods for the car, though minor: Red H Steering wheel badge and Red H mugen key cover.





First road trip to Orlando, where I installed HID lowbeam at 5000k and fog lights at 3000k









Second mod, K&N short ram intake. I know it doesn't add power but it sounds cool.





Most recent mod, JDM Red H Badges.









And some random photos taken today






How she sits at the moment. I have some H&R springs coming in tomorrow, but still debating whether I should get some shocks for it before installing. Maybe some truharts. Still looking to get a Bayson R lip, some visors, either OEM or Mugen if I want mad JDM points, and that should be it for the exterior until I get wheels. Still debating on what wheels to get. Haven't found a set that really grabbed my attention, except for the HFP 18" wheels but not sure how I feel about buying OEM wheels at that price when I could get something else.

As for power mods, really debating getting flash pro and full bolt on's. Still wondering if cams will ever be made for this car. Might settle for an axleback just for sound, but who knows. Would like to get a downpipe and exhaust, or maybe just downpipe and axleback.

That's all I got for now.

Update on my progress.

I have removed the K&N short ram intake and went back to the stock one. After installing the stock one back on and driving it for a bit, it felt overall better. I noticed some performance loss after a while with the K&N, but wasn't sure about it and thought it was in my head, til i reinstalled the stock airbox. In the end, sold the K&N intake.

Well, I came across a great deal on a flashpro locally that I really couldn't pass up.

Purchased it, flashed the hondata reflash on it and ran it for about a day. Ran nicely, the only noticeable difference was the rev hang delete and quicker acceleration. Overall and nice feeling. Now, considering the price I found it at, I had a lot of thinking to do. Ideally, I wanted to go full bolt on's with RBC swap. But, after thinking about it for a bit, I decided that it's not for me. I remember when I had my EJ1 coupe with an LS/VTEC swap, and as much fun as it was at the time, I believe that at this day and age, I wouldn't enjoy hearing an exhaust all the damn time. That plus I just don't feel that bolt on's would give the kind of power i'm looking for at the price they sell for, and I know for damn sure I'm not going to go boost. I'm an all motor kinda guy when it comes to Honda's. So that being said, I sold the flashpro the next day.

So after making that decision, I am just going to focus on the all show and no go aspect for now. To me, the car is fun enough to drive the way it comes. So I went ahead and purchased a dash panel with push start button from a 2014-2015 Si. Will be installing when I have free time available.

Looks like it is coming together nicely. I don't see many blue 9th gens. I really like that look. Have you decided on what type of wheels you are going to be looking for?

Well quick update, did a little photoshoot while visiting Orlando a couple months ago.



Aside from that, got a rear window visor from HIC, as well as the side window visors and a Mugen shift knob









Also have a Bayson R lip waiting to install. Trying to decide whether to match paint it or keeping it black. Have an idea of what wheels i'm looking to get, but probably won't be til next year.
