The gauges and headlight housings look very ebay to me. It kinda takes the look of the car down. I bet some SVT OEM black housings, or the Depo SVT HID OEM style headlights would look awesome. I'm also not a fan of going with a wide rim, then using an undersized tire. It's a turbo'ed car, you need some meat to get that thing to stick now!

When I had a supercharged Civic, I could never find a way to make my gauge pillar stick so I just used the boost gauge once to see what boost I was making and took it off. lol. It's not like it can spike or creep. It is pretty fun to watch it swing out of vacuum into boost though.

Giving priority to oil gauges where the svt extended cluster would be the boost is going in a cup not sure of placement yet but discrete.

Kids were in bed so I only did one side and didn't drive them.. But test fit my track tires.




Amazing the difference between 20 et vs 42. Even with the wider tires they don't poke as much.



Have about a quarter of an inch to a half inch clearance from the fender liner at full lock.


225/45/16 on 7.5" et 42

I did this





Airlift 1000 kit - transfers load from springs to bags on demand.

Gives me up to 1" of lift at the rear.

protects my sidewalls when my kids are all back there

also investigating benifits for auto-x since i have a .5" of reverse rake when 'aired out'.
