It's most definitely my phone, as it's not that white, and my car isn't that red, lol. Just the typical Rust-Oleum white peel coat.

Ha. I didn't pay much attention to the red, but now it looks like some PS red lol.

Got a few things installed last night.......... SiriMoto Front Strut Brace and SiriMoto Rear Trunk Brace.

I installed the FSB first and took it for a spin. I'm not sure if it was in my head, but that thing actually made a difference. I haven't driven the car with the trunk brace, but will this weekend.

I want to put the trunk brace on, but it doesn't look like it'll be fun to install. About the only thing I need to install back there, besides a sway bar and links.

Just take your time. Just have to take off the carpet lining. Procivic has a video on YouTube showing how to install it. Not a hard job, but definitely takes patience, especially when screwing in the bolt on the driver side. Give yourself about 30 min.

I've watched the video and probably could do it anyway. I'm just lazy lol. I haven't even ordered it yet but it's on my list of stuff to get.

Lol, I gotcha. I contacted Procivic and asked them which braces will benefit the most (already had the front lower brace, rear swaybar, and coilovers) and they stated the trunk brace and front strut bar will be the best bang for the buck. Not sure if I'm going to install the W brace or rear lower tie bar or not. My suspension seems to be doing quite well on the streets right now. Will determine if I need any of the other braces when I take it to the track.

I've got their rear lower tie bar and front strut bar and FKX front lower tie bar and rear strut bar already. The W brace and trunk brace would be the only things missing but the car is fun right now. I think those two things would be overkill.

Did another small mod......... purchased the skunk2 weight shift knob. Upon install, it made the stock shifter feel real flimsy. I do like the feel of the shifts, but it really made it feel top heavy and unbalanced. I think I'm going to invest in the aquity shifter or go with the OEM type r shift knob (either the standard or upgraded one).

Esco. Do it. Get the insulated one if you can, thing doesn't get hot or cold. The other one with T6 is aluminum. I didn't think it was so I blindly bought it in red. Still sitting on my desk in a box. Too late to return it anyway.

I love the trunk brace, was a bit of a pain to put in but it's a nice piece.

Does anyone know how much power the stock motor and transmission can handle? I'm looking to supercharge my 2013 si
Varies........ I've seen motors with turbo kits pushing 500whp for a period of time, but eventually blows. It seems that many people are pushing between 350-450 whp range for a prolong period of time with no issues. BUT, depending on what supercharger kit you go with, that torque can kill the motor. I went with MercRacing and pushing more low end torque than most (within the same hp range); so I'm not sure if that'll hurt the motor faster vs the top end torque like turbo or Kraftwerks kit.

As for transmission........ from what I've researched and seen following YouTubers........ around 400whp 4 gear goes out.

Used Acuity's black friday sale and bought their rad hoses and pedal spacer thing. They now make fuel rails and oil caps. Rails look nice, not too crazy about their oil caps but the design makes sense.

Did the "Jdm" Hood prop mod. Not bad for cheap, also did the sirimoto baysaver kit. Replaces some of the clips I lost/broke, and helps tidy up the bay.
