The civic took the place of the green formula. Not pictured is my wife's truck
I spy Chamelion blue-green firebird!

I had a 2000 Trans am of the same color.

Ended up getting an OEM ram air hood, painted to match.

408ci iron block stroker, Procharged D1SC, 6Mt, Ford 9" rear etc etc.

Fun fun.

Back on topic, thanks for this thread regarding your HX.

I'm learning a lot for my D16Y5 swap that is going to happen next week.

Yeah we still have our trans am and camaro but sold the firebird. It was a basket case of things breaking on it, I have a 3 tow rule for my cars and that formula had been towed atleast 5 times and it was my daily so it went bye bye. Took the 6 speed out and put it in the camaro

My wife gives me **** for the civic, we live in an upscale neighborhood and she says it looks like the maids car. She wants me to upgrade back into something else for a while but sorry babe the civic stays

dam good looking car for its age. wish we got those model Hondas here. do you have pics or links to your short ram intake? was it beneficial? seems like the simplest mod to gain some extra mpg

No but it is the cheapest of cheap intakes from ebay or amazon. You can also buy them from autozone or O'Reilleys. I believe it does help with mileage but only because it has a smooth intake pipe with no air intake silencer to disturb air flow. I have not been able to find a factory intake



The intake I want next is one made for an Acura Integra rs or gs. It positions the intake directly behind the radiator fan

Also on a whim I bought some tien s tech lowering spribgs. My stock springs have really sagged a bit over 300k miles so it will be interesting to see if they actually lower the car or not.

Lately in Texas our weather has been typhoon season but even with my ac usage I'm staying above 40 mpg

My family thinks I'm crazy for driving it, luckily my wife is extremely supportive of my projects
