    Hey guys, probably don't remember me much, unless your a MOD that told me :newbie: 6 months ago. Anyway, I was saving to get a new (used) civic, just 2 weeks away from a 95si, when the most unbeleivable thing happens....


    My mother talks me into getting a newer car, she'll help pay for it as long as I don't invest 5g's into it and wrap it around a ford explorer again(remember me now?).

    Yesterday I picked up my new ride.... a 2001 ex coupe.... I know i know, whooopeeee...SIKE!


    ITS SLOW AS FUCK, but gotta love it. Thank god my moms, wont stop the black 17's and the lack of an inch and a half(ride height) I will have by next week.

    Maybe someday it will be an EX Type S, but for now I may go forced induction by spring(hahaha mom wont know the difference). What do you guys think I should do in the long run, or better yet I need to add 30 horses to this baby fast before I die of boredom, and the interior becomes old.

    Does anybody know what the fuck an EX Type S is, is it some new civic I have heard nothing about? If you want it to go fast, get a new engine, a RSX Type-S engine. And the S2000 is slower, new engine, a 2.2, with like 10-20 more lbs of torque, and some facial modifications. Knowing how heavy the S2000 is, even though it is only a convertable, it probably weighs 3,000 lbs. Also the redline is at 8000, I think, peak power is reached at 7800 RPM.
