    So I guess this my build thread for my car. It's a 2013 LX, I got it in March since my previous car was wrote off in an accident (not my fault).

    Anyways, I've done a few things to it so far, intake resonator delete, 8th gen axleback exhaust, 2014 or 2015 Si wheels, Skunk2 lowering springs with Godspeed Project rear upper control arms. I plan on tinting my tail lights this coming week.

    Future plans include getting foglights, the windows tinted, lip kit (front, rear and skirts), full catback exhaust, header and downpipe.

    Thanks, I'm not a big sedan guy lol. What differentiates an HFP from a normal one, cosmetic wise? Is it just the small lips on it, and skirts?
    Thanks man, it's a lot more fun to drive now. I've also had some people turning to look at it going by too, not a lot of lowered 9th gens here, especially on these wheels.

    Everybody, calm down for this ground breaking update:

    Skunk2 shift knob was installed today!....It's cool that it's smaller, but honestly the stock one feels heavier.

    Not that much to post on this as I haven't done a whole lot, but I did find the thread on the Godspeed control arms (http://9thcivic.com/forum/threads/godspeed-camber-arm-owners-beware.9011/) since mine did have about the 1-1.5mm gap, I fixed that with a washer per side, then greased the hell out of them.

    Also, I have a Tsudo catback coming for this, supposed to be showing up Friday, hopefully I can get it installed next week.
