Talking got my first civic

I am getting my first car this Saturday, and it is a 2005 honda civic si coupe with a 5 speed. I am soo happy to be getting. I am a newb and i have a few questions as well.

1. What type of gas should i be putting in the car, since i know it is the si and not a basic civic that you can put cheap fuel in like my dad old 95 civic.

2. What type of engine does it have.

3. In the future when i have money to spend on the car what types of parts can i put on it to make it faster. ex. cold air intake vs short ram intake, and other parts cause i want to beet my buddies 2003 focus zx5 on the track.

welcomed !!

check the manual !

I believe that 2000 and previous Si model didn't need premium gas. However I m pretty sure 2005 Si does require premium gas. I may be mistaken for the 2006 Si that's the reason I said check the manual to make sure

As for mods, short ram , cold air intake, headers, exhaust wont give you much more horsepower. You can always do small mods but the power increase isn't really a lot

However you car will sound better and you may see better response and maybe a small increase in power...


As per the engine , I m not sure if your SI is the EP3 with the K20A3 engine or the other si(ex) with the D17 engine

Is your si a hatch?

ok, even if those small mods dont give me a lot of more power, i just want some more since i dont think i will have the money to put a turbo on it. I will look at the manual. My car isnt the hatch back version.

I wouldnt recommend a turbo if thats your only car.

If its not a hatch then it must be a d17. If thats the case I dont think you need premium gas. You should still check the manual to be sure.

Small mods are not that bad , I have headers, exhaust , intake and it sounds good , a little more torque, a little more power, i ll beat another stock civic and maybe a stock si (with a bad driver). But you will still be legal to drive on the roads.

Welcome to TCC.

05 si has the d17. Just run 87 in it. That's what it was designed to run on.
