(stock except intake and exhuast)

2.Axis Spider 18' hyper black rims
(i have 17' tenzo r passion five gunmetal rims)

3.Indash Pioneer N1 screen

nitrous... cuz our Civics are so maxed out from factorie that all you can possibly do is
1.swap
2.turbo/super
3.nitrous

me?? ill take all the above, turbo though but not super

but if u want those choices i'd go 4 nitrous

I'm not sure if you have good shocks already but if not that money could be put to use on a coilover setup with the appropriate sway and strut bar upgrades. If you have that already, then I'd go for the screen. No need to go with NOS, you'll just be hurting your engine anyway, and the total amount you'd spend fixin it back up, added to install, would = swap territory. Of course, you COULD upgrade your rims, sell the old ones, and take that money to use towards suspension...it's all about balancing right?

TURBO or air-ride, rims dont matter that much, and a tv who cares

if you go nitrous or turbo, you will have to beef up your internals and clutch. you will end up dumping alot of money into the car. if you want speed, do the swap. otherwise go for looks and get the other stuff.

nitrous is cool and can be dangerous unless you dont abuse it.. i suggest building some of the engine components before using it to be a more on the safe side. 18's wont do any good for performance they will slow you down even more but they do look damn good. the tv is just another reason for somebody to break in your car and take it. my suggestion, if you really wanted some more speed you would be askin about turbo vs swap.. i say go for looks and get you a beater to build up like a crx with a b18 or something to use for a race car.. get the 18's and the bags.. build the civic to look good and then have another car to race with.

or perhaps sell your car and buy this..
