For that kind of money.. id do a full engine swap..

Whats it lowered on? if its only springs then get some coilovers. £289 for some awesome ones on ebay.

Get full set of braces.

Upgrade your brakes??

fully adj is good.. no need to change them or the brakes then..

to be honest, for that money.. not a doubt in my mind.. id do a h22 or b18vti swap.

have you heard of Hondata? Get one of their mappable ECUs and get the car mapped by a professional. Well within your budget and will make a huge difference
No i havnt heard of them m8, tho i was thinking bout getting it remmaped, if i were to get a buddyclub cam bundle (£1400) then get it remmaped would it make that much of a difference or would it be better to just do an engine swap???

Oh n btw cheers for the advice all :)

All good points nick, i just think that if hes spent the time and money to mod his car to his tastes.. why start again when theres no need too..

Plus not everyone likes the DC2 as much as some civics.. I know i prefer the look of the EJs


Also.. theres insurance to take into account
