I'd probably do the same in your shoes, but I'm vaguely curious about the complete IMA removals. You gain a lot of hatch space and shed weight.

There are a couple of DIY lithium replacements over on IC you might choose to replicate. They all have drawbacks right now, but you can probably make yours a "plug-in" for less total cost than a replacement archaic NiMH pack. That, or maybe look into a motor swap. I bet this car would be a hoot with the new Civic's 1.5T.
