03 ex coupe new to the site

Names Nelson, here are a few pics keep changin my mind between savin up for a k swap or turbo the the d17a2, goal of 225-250whp. Future mods besides the engine are mugen lip kit, fogs, rs type grill should be here in a couple days, gold 16\17in wheels that aren't too bling blow, gold honda emblem removing the ex and civic emblem, and I know this sounds kind of out there but I want to see how a carbon fiber hood with a dark goldish tint to it would look. If u guys have seen any pics of a somethin like that on a civic let me know





nothin like the sound of a jl w6 13in. sub

stock for now but I keep it clean

Re: 03 ex coupe new to the site

who installed the sub? could have done a much better job hiding the power wire. Other than that, very clean.

Re: 03 ex coupe new to the site

yeah my sub power wire before I relocated my battery went straight across the fire wall under the cruise control and followed the wire harness to the battery. It looked so much cleaner then a red wire in the middle of the engine bay for no apparent reason. Good luck with the car.

Re: 03 ex coupe new to the site

Nice, same car I had before I did stuff to it, of course now I'm selling it but yeah. I'd say tint it first, beings its fairly cheap and get rid of that huge sticker on the back.


The CF hood thing sounds different? Never really seen or heard of anything like that. If your in need of one, I'm selling one for $250-300..brand new.


EDIT: Not paying attention, already tinted. Haha, sorry.

maybe its just me, but it doesnt seem safe to put a plastic fuse holder on a radiator hose.

Re: 03 ex coupe new to the site

I got my grill from ebay for $23 new, says direct bolt on so it better be. I don't really want another car, maybe much later on down the road i'd look into gettin a 350z just because I really like that car as well but i'd still keep the civic. As you can see from my hp goal of 225-250, even 250 is a little high for me, I just want a fun car that has a little get up when I want to get on it.

Re: 03 ex coupe new to the site

i dont know about the gold tint, but have you thought about just spraying it with a gold pearl. I have a few buddies that have CF and a different color pearl in their paint so they just sprayed the pearl over the CF and it looks really good!

Re: 03 ex coupe new to the site

haha I feel u, i'm not tryin to go too crazy with it. Friend of mine showed me a pic of a civic with somewhat of the hood idea I had and i'm over it now. All I want is my mugen lip kit, gold rims, some black tyc's, and maybe thinkin bout the stock spoiler. As far as the engine, still can't decide.
