good job on the chrome, but it's not really my style. chrome engine parts belong on hot rods IMO.

Looks great, chrome some more pieces. I wish I could afford to chrome or polish my entire engine bay.

Really nice. A little of the bling bling factor. You need to bring it down to Nashville, Tn for Import Alliance Meet this summer. It is July 25and 26 at the Nashville Super speedway.

First, I would like to say that I'm surprised your car was repainted the way a car should be repainted. The bay is orange too!

Second, the chrome looks pretty cool, although the loom and zip ties look tacky...

Third, what the hell is up with your intake?

i was looking at that mutilated intake earlier. it looks like someone took some sheers and just cut that pipe right where it connects to the intake manifold lol.

and yea props on the complete paintjob. 99% of these people spray the outside and won't pop their hoods fully at shows because their strut towers are different colors than the body hahahaha

When I took the pic I was still installing a throttle body spacer...thats why it looks like that. I agree with the wire loom...lol I already took it off. Im trying to find something to replace the black hoses. I also got the supercharger polished too. I got the work done at a spot here in Newark nj called Mara's Plating.

Yeah...thats my brothers pink EK9 civic. The motor is a K20z3 which is the 06-08 Civic SI motor with about 200hp I believe. Alot of people are getting the cheaper k series which come out the accords and oddesey. Not too many people have the reallly fast ones which come out of the TSX or Si's. But in our accord the Cl type s motor which everyone on here is doing, I think is a better move. Theirs a couple of civics out here in Jersey with the J30 and J32 that are spanking the Kseries

K series in EG’s EF’s etc is getting more and more popular, but the K series is still a more practical swap for the civics. The K series has so much aftermarket support and tuning options. You can still build a nasty NA or boosted K24 which is why people are using the k24's off the bat, they won't rev has high as a k20 but again your working with a bigger motor at 2.4 the tq will be better.

I'm the only one that I know of on this site but I could be wrong, I would of done a J my self but it's always nice trying something new you know. About the wire loom I think it's fine even if you take it off and just leave everything normal. You can also get the hose techniques kit which is very clean.

looks nice, how much was it to chrome your intake manifold. I was debating either that or powdercoat. Your bay is really clean though. props.

I paid 490 for everything. I was also considering the powdercoating cause its cheaper and looks very good too. I have a racing radiator also but I have to buy the aftermarket fans for it.
