New e92 owner!

Hello all, felt I should introduce myself. I just purchased a 2009 Jet Black e92 6sp. It should get here on friday, and I can not wait. I feel like a kid on christmas.

This is a huge upgrade for me as well, I had to save for a year to get this car. The car I am coming from is a 2008 civic si 2dr, which I dumped a ton of money into. I stroked the motor to a 2.4L, and I fully built it up. In the end the NA engine put 250 hp/200 tq to the wheels, not bad for a four cylinder. Anyways I am looking forward to be using this site, nice change of pace from 8thgencivic.com

here's a couple pics of the Si






(yes i know its dirty)

Thanks for the compliments! its definitely going to be strange going from a big fish in a small pond to a small fish in the ocean. Some of the builds I have seen on this site are amazing, I am going to have to step my game up big time

That SI is tastefully modded and doesn't scream JDM. I welcome you. Enjoy the e92, it'll be a huge upgrade.

Congrats! I'm in a 2007 Civic Si 2Dr right now actually. Fiji Blue with painted black wheels, but yours looks great, and like others said, not screaming jdm. From high revving, screaming engine to another...
