Canada Been away from Honda for 20 years, but I'm BAck!


Anyhow, I'm a Mustang lovin' guy from Way back, and have one now..Just picked up a 98 civic cx hatch, whatever you all call them in short form, and I want to make it nicer to drive, a bit faster, and learn more about the little beastie. I was involved in the Honda/Michelin race series at Mosport for a few years, as I worked for the wheel/tire supplier, and had as few laps around the track in my old Accord coupe, Both ways! So it goes, I moved on to other places/cars/jobs, but still had to get a civic..Insurance is gonna Kill me, but I'll try it for a while..Any help for this Old Newbie about fixing up this unit would be helpful, like a good place to get stripped parts, honest shops that know the bugs in these things, and general answering my stupid questions about these versions of civics would be helpful.Don't have a lot of $ to toss around, so used and good works for me, and that's why we're all here; right? Better seats, direct bolt in, gauges with a factory tach, radio issues, all here..just need to find them, and maybe help out along the way, too..Time to go reset my SRS lite..learned how Right Here!! Thanks for having me..

As with any car, the roads and aveneus depends on how denaro you want to spend.

Welcome to the site. First things first, upgrade the suspension and tires, then brakes. After that, think about adding some power. There are countless ways to do that...hehe.
