    So I bought my Orange 2009 Honda civic Si January 2012. Then my love for Honda's Really started even tho it was partially there already, I bought and installed two T1's in a ported box with a 1200 watt amp, bought a taketa cold air intake, Got the mod bug and burnt up my clutch racing so I Bought a exedy stage 1 clutch and lightweight flywheel. Then the unfortunate happened, I totaled the car 06-30-2013. Found a taffy white fa5 with all the right mods (mainly Hondata & RRC) and love at first sight. I have huge plans for this car, my main goal is to make it a beautiful, yet fast, JDM conversion, k24 turbo, 9 second FA5 and just have fun doing it. I understand its a little unrealistic but we all have to have goals and well I shoot for the impossible with everything so F*** It. Hope you enjoy my build and thanks for stopping in.
    Stay clam and :vtec: on!

    I originally got on this fourm I was gonna trade my orange fa5 in for a white 13 sedan that didn't happen because of my money situation. So that's my car, and my plan for now. So any questions or comments welcomed. Thanks for looking.

    Well the 2014 si models are supposed to be at dealerships this spring. Non-si models in the next two months or so from what workers have been saying.

    what year is your taffy?

    AT acceleration sucks IMO. I find that I have to "floor it" sometimes just to make the car move. Then of course by doing so, the MPGs decrease. My GF's 9th gen is averaging 30-32 MPGs each tank. I have read a lot of complaints regarding the AT and its MPGs. Good gas mileage can still be achieved though, you just have to drive VERY conservatively.

    I, too, have one of each. There's a reason the manual has 6k miles and the AT just hit 1k lol. We both drive the AT like a baby and I can't seem to hit anything above 30mpgs. I drive the manual like I stole it of course, and I get 34-36.
