Check it out, I got one of those Cherry Bomb Mufflers (the long red one) from meijers and it makes a pretty nice noise but its not too loud. And it was something like 20 bucks. I only needed to get a hanger for the rear of the muffler and weld it up.
Oh and congrats on showing up that Honda. I hate those civics.

theres lots of talk with upgrades around for se-rs and what not since your new i wont be mean or anything but theres a little search area just type in something u think might be cool like a cai or turbo or suspension and a million links will pop up , some with opions some with instal tips, personally i recogmend a turbo, i always get a j spec engine because they come turbo and idk i jsut trust them more but american sr20s have higher compression and would gain more with a turbo so look around inthe classifieds on se-r.com ebay or even in your local paper i bet u will find some stuff that u want for cheap no sense in paying top dollar for something when u can get the same thing with 20 miles on it for a hundred bucks less, of course if it still works

Nice job on the Civic I hate them too, I think we all like to show 'em up. If you live in Kingston have you ever talked to the guys at the parts desk at the Nissan dealership about the red NX thats around there. I've seen it a few times on a trailer around the back, looks pretty sweet, it might have a turbo setup on it. For a body kit: NOPI has one made by Erubuni, I think wouldn't be bad idea to check there if you havn't already.

3" drop on springs is bad news dude, your car will bottom the f out, if your lucky enough not to blow your shocks, which you most likely will, go to the stickies in the suspension and brakes section, it will provide you with very important knowledge
