    Constructively criticize me. But first know this, everything I've looked for I've simply looked for once or twice. I haven't gotten that far into EVERYTHING I need because it's too far off and too many paychecks down the road to worry about every little detail right now.


    Have at it. Yes I'm going with a Supercharger, no I'm not changing my mind. The price is right for a kit, cheaper than damn near every turbo kit I've ever looked at.

    I know B had a problem with some things on my old list. I had a different set of injectors for when the engine is built and more boost is added. I hadn't researched that far into it and threw out a random number based on initial findings and reading about low boost b16a's on this board, HT and CL. If he or anyone else can find me a walboro pump for under 109, link me. I'd rather buy that than the one I found.

    I know the exhaust will be too small for after it's boosted, I've considered that and since the exhaust is already purchased (if driftspeed ever sends me my fucking exhaust... I'm going to go with what I have). I can always upgrade later on to a 2.5" diameter catback when I have too much money.

    they're going to be winter rims. one is curbed pretty badly the lip was scraped in, one is scuffed badly. This all thanks to the asshole who cut me off in the rain because "he didn't see me"... doesn't help when your tires are almost bald either.

    They aren't worth any money now.

    speaking of winter tires... I forgot to mention that I won't be BUYING all of those different tires... I just can't make up my mind on which ones to get... so I keep them all listed there where I can keep it handy.

    brakes are overkill... normally i would not say anything but i dont think that the 11.75s will fit under a 15" wheel for your winters

    the rims are too thin... you need at least a 7 inch wide rim

    Cal turned me onto those brakes. The ones listed on fastbrakes are designed to fit under stock Si and GSR rims.

    The summer tires are going on a 16"... I think I see what you mean, I forget what the width on the Miglias and Rotas are. I'll look further into it later.

    no its not. i have 205/50/15 kuhmo MX's on 15x6 gsr fat fives. sure the will perform a lttle better on a 6.5 or 7" rim, but they fit fine on the 6"

    and james, the 11.75" brakes wont fit under the stock 15" rims i believe cal has the 11" kit.

    New 4 piston calipers from Wilwood with dust seals provide the stopping power with this new kit. Using the 11.75 inch 2 piece rotors, this kit is designed to fit under 15 inch wheels. This new caliper was designed for protection of the caliper pistons during rally racing and off-road useage. Kit contains the 4 piston aluminum calipers, performance pads, 2 piece 11.75 inch slotted & drilled rotors, adapter brackets, and braided steel front brake lines. 1996-2000 Civic Si or EX.

    Do they mean 15x7" rims then? Cause they don't really specify, leading me to believe as long as you have stock size or wider rims the kit would fit.

    I might have to call and inquire into this question.

    I think sometimes the brakes will fit under aftermarket 15" wheels, but not oem, it said that when i was looking at crx stuff. On fastbrakes. But who knows, call em and ask.

    yea im not sure. but under the crx kits, they specifically say that the 4 piston 11" kit wont fit under the stock 15" wheels. id def call and make sure. it sounds like they will fit under the wheel but the caliper wont clear the offset. if they will fit under, but the caliper hits, you may have to run a spacer to clear it.

    Yeah, I'll have to call them. And B, before purchasing 1200 dollar set of brakes I would have asked questions before hand anyway... cause I know what you're gonna end up saying once you see this. :)

    running hondata and a VAFC2 is stupid. everything the VAFC does, hondata does and does it better. dont waste your monye on a VAFC. i would go with crome if it were me for the price. ask brian what he thinks about that :)

    your gonna drop all that money on that setup and rock the stock injectors? dont bother upgrading your pump then because the injectors will run out far before the pump does.

    honestly your gonna spend 2700 on a supercharger setup that going to make maybe 220WHP on its best day when you can get a turbo kit for the same or lessa and make 50HP more easy. but hey if you mind is made up i wont try to talk you out of it. an i wouldnt bother upgrading the internals cause your not going to make enough power with a SC to break anything anyways.

    the pump and larger injectors won't come until after the engine is built - from my reading on here the stock units will work fine on the 6 psi pulley that comes with the JRSC unit. Even after the internals are beefed up I might not even up the boost. Just throwing everything out there.
