    The Halms manual is the same one that dealers use.

    Yeap it will fit, but you are better off just buying a 2000 Civic Si/SiR as it has different tranny and better suspension than stock 2000 EX/Si (US/Canada)

    If you are going to do the engine swap, the B18 from Integra is probably better bolt on, or H22 from prelude (more involved).

    My girlfriend recently got a 95 del sol - stock. This past weekend we were at a VW show in PA and picked up a set of 17" Motor Sport Wheels. He said they were on a GTI and before that, a civic. The 4 lug pattern seems to be spread out further than her del sol. My question is this: are ther two different 4 lug patterns?

    I believe all Civics, except 2004-2005 Si are 4x100.

    I own a 1997 4 door Honda Civic with a 1.5L engine. I am really not sure but I think it is a B 15 engine. I Would like to know what I can do or how I can add more power (hp and torque) with my existing engine (basic to advanced modifications)?

    If you are in US, the '97 should have 1.6 liter, and depending on the trim it may be a D16. I am pretty sure B16's were reserved for 1999-2000 Civic Si only.

    If you have manual you can start adding more power, however if you have auto, any add-on's will be lost in the slush box.

    Nitrous - $600 - cheap way to add 10 seconds of high power
    Supercharge - $1500 and up decent way to add continuous power
    Turbo - $3000 and up -- great way to add power.

    I'm a car audio newb. I have almost no knowledge here. My dingus borther in law ripped the audio system out of the 85 CRX he gave me without trying to be neat about it. I have to figure out how to make the new one work. i connected all the like colored wires for the power (I know about the speaker wires already). When i turn the key, I can make the clock turn on, but none of the other systems. What can i do to find the problem. What do i need to know?

    Honda branded ones are made by McGuard if I am not mistaken. They work fine. You can get them from the site sponsor at a discount or from your dealer. If you bring the print out from HandA, they will likley to match the price.

    Has anyone installed a hood liner in the engine compartment of a Civic in order to reduce engine noise? I have started looking into installing one from either Dynamat or Fatmat. These are my concerns:

    1. In addition to sound insulation, the hood liner offered by Dynamat has a reflective coating that reflects heat back to the engine. Won't this put stress on the engine especially in hot weather while sitting at stop lights?

    2. The hood liner from Fatmat is advertised to absorb engine heat which answers my concern about the Dynamat liner. However, I have read on other forums that some people have experienced problems with Fatmat products coming unglued, especially when applied to surfaces where it hangs upside down (like in an engine compartment).

    Does anyone have any experiences they'd like to share?

    We have a 2005 Honda Civic VP (Value Package) at work and it needs a cruise control as it is driven alot on the Interstate. Does anyone know of good aftermarket units? Should I take it to Honda (gulp)? Any advice is appreciated.

    Try JC Whitney They sell aftermarket Cruise controls. You may as well try Honda and see what their price is, and whether it is possible to retrofit Honda OEM cruise.

    I will be replacing the stock CD stereo in my '05 Civic EX sedan with a new Clarion stereo with Dolby Pro-Logic Surround Sound. I love symphony music, and want the car to sound like a concert hall. I am looking for recommendations on replacing the front speakers. The Clarion CD stereo has 53 watts of power per channel, and I do not plan to get a power amplifier. I am more interested in full, rich sound vs. loud pounding noise. Any suggestions?

    Am buying 2005 Civic Hybrid and want to get tires that will produce the smoothest possible ride over the cracks, seams, bumps and dips of worn city streets (and short distances on well-worn freeway). Am willing to sacrifice some gas mileage and wasn't going to be doing much high speed cornering, etc...But will need good traction in lots of wet weather.

    Should I be changing size? [stock is 185/70R14]
    Any suggestion for brands or specific tires? [Anyone have experience with Goodyear's Assurance Comfortred?

    It might be impossible to get the sound you are after without an amplifier. The 53 watts on that deck is rated different than good separate amps are. I have an Alpine deck that is rated at 50 watts but it is only 8 watts RMS. If you are going to go that root look for efficient rated speakers like Boston Acoustics, not ones such as Polks that need a lot of power. Look for ones that can be powered by say 10-50 watts RMS. The Boston's usually have nice high end for the money as well. I think Civics might still come with lower end Pioneer speakers so you will need to spend at least 50-100 bucks to hear much difference.
  • I have a 88 Civic LX with a B16A1 engine but would like to add affordable upgrades with out putting my house up for sale to do so. If any body can give some advice on how I can put more ponies into my car, drope me a line. :lemon:
