aluminium cooling plate

Why would you need something like that on a civic anyway? Ive never heard of any civics having problems with cooling on the stock rad and fan even with some pretty crazy motor mods. If your motor is modded and overheating then maybe you should consider a dual core rad or something.

that's hella useless. it can't possibly do anything for you (cosmetics only)

Zerosport has the same things for Subaru cars, but its actually an air splitter for the hoodscoop.

save your money and get a Fluidyne or Koyo rad for your car if you are worried about cooling capacity. Otherwise, go ahead and get yourself some Redline water wetter, that stuff works well, or even a higher pressure rad cap, or a lower temp thermostat from Spoon or Mugen.

it just channel's the Air to your rad more effectively. There's no point in buying one as you could make one for next to nothing. And if you REALLY want better cooling you use that in addition to Rearward facing Vent's on the hood. That vents out the hot air after it has passed through the rad. But unless your making serious power these shouldn't even be considred.
