    Hi guys

    Got a few questions, I hope someone can answer:

    First one is a bit odd... (don't laugh at me)
    * My car was imported from Japan in 2003 (by it's last owner)... The log book just has "1991 Honda civic, 1400cc"

    On the car it's got Vtec, SIR, Dohc
    Theres a plate that says EG4

    What is the full spec of this car?

    *I want to replace the seats front and back... what’s the best option?

    And what other upgrades/mods do you recommend?



    Thanks

    Joe

    Which sticker?

    The stickers are old, and look like they been on there for a long time.

    What about the SIR sticker?

    I'm don't care if someone added the stickers to make it look better... I'd just like to know the proper spec of the car.

    in front looking at the motor down to the left beside the exhaust, there will be a stamp on the block that will read d15b. its just to the left of the exhaust very easy to find

    Type r seats would fit. You could look into a B16 for it, which is the dohc SIR motor that is being advertised on the door. Or a GSR motor for more power. Or, because that motor is pushing roughly 125hp, you could clean it up really nice, put a few small touches on it here and there, and just enjoy the car for what it is. They are fun.

    Clean up the rust. Don't let it eat the car.
