    Default Honda Civic 05 ES1 Build Thread by rohaansaeed.

    Hello everyone

    So after almost five and a half years at Pakwheels, I finally thought of making a Build Thread of my 2005 Honda Civic VTi M/T.

    Starting off with a little introduction, this car has been with me since the very first day, we're the first owners. In around 7 years it's done roughly around 20,000km.

    oh and I'll go with this build slowly, don't want to rush things and just dump all the money and rice the car up, I'll discuss the mods that have already been done and that are still pending.

    In the meantime, suggestions, feedback and advice will be appreciated

    Will be putting up detailed pictures gradually, keep following

    Enjoy

    Index:
    - Page 1 -- Interior/Engine Bay
    - Page 2 -- Audio System - Pictures and Video uploaded
    - Page 3 -- Suspension
    - Page 5 -- Pivot Volt MegaRaizin
    - Page 6 -- Exterior Pictures
    - Page 6 -- Engine Mod Teasers
    - Page 8 -- Cabin Filter DIY <--- Disappointing !
    - Page 9 -- Simota Cold Air Intake Added
    - Page 10 -- USDM Coupe Grill Installation
    - Page 14 -- K-PRO III


    Update: Still not getting time for a proper shoot -.-


    Note: Off-topic posts or arguments are not allowed here. Negative posts targeted towards fellow members will also be reported immediately.

    With the Crower Stage 1, the engine idles and redlines according to the stock specs, there's no rough idle, power gains are significant, found it worth the buck.

    Surprisingly enough, the gas consumption actually improved, I drive with a light foot so I get around 12-13km/l in city compared to the previous 10km/l that I was getting with the stock Camshaft.

    Very true, but one of my friends had them spare and was kind enough to give them to me so I thought why not give it a shot

    Installed them but took them off a while later, as they weren't needed, stock valve springs with Stage 1 cam is the current setup

    I've been busy lately, but thank God my Fridays are off so I woke up early and started working on the OEM USDM Coupe Grill I bought which had been lying around since a while, couldn't take detailed pictures during the installation as I didn't have any help with me

    But oh well I'm sharing the one's I managed capturing

    To remove/install the grill, you need to take off the whole bumper, if anybody needs directions for that, let me know, I'll take some pictures and make a little guide

    Here they are

    Haha, lot of people suggested me the same, but again, the car is pretty much stock on the exterior so installing the CTR emblems would be kind of wannabe-ish

    That's why got the Genuine Honda emblem, costed a lot but worth it

    I think the chrome strip looks pretty neat, even some of the USDM Honda Tech members love the Chrome strip and crave for it

    So it stays, and yeah the Holes will remain there if you take it off

    Easy gains of around 15hp, but to utilize the cam to it's full potential, I'll be getting a K-pro soon
