    As it states I just bought a 2008 Honda Civic SI. This is a big change from my 91 civics that i have but it will be a nice change from b series motors. I dont have many plans for the car right now. But later down the road I am sure I will be looking into some mods. Most likely I,H,E but for now I hope to just try and learn as much as I can from everyone on here. If anyone knows of any major issues or things I should look out let me know please. I know they had an issue with the trans and 3rd gear but no problems yet.
    Thanks

    Yup. I believe the solution Honda came up with was to put GM synchromesh in it.

    I talked to the A tech at the shop and he said honda has a message on the concern. They replace 3rd gear and the synchro. I have an extended warranty and they said it was covered. If it gives me an issue I think I am going to have them install a clutch n flywheel why the trans is out.
