I'm confused are you trying to place an order to go or pickup? All I got was 2 sides of rice and 1 egg roll

please don't take offense, but save your money. i drive a DC2 Integra GS-R and i know these cars pretty well, but you will get absolutely NOTHING but a waste of money if you decide to put serious work in to an automatic Civic(especially if it's not an Si). if it's an old 90's/early 00's Civic, the DX/LX/CX made about 110hp and the EX made only 127hp. when the last-gen versions came out, the base models still only came with 140hp stock. that's not much power at all, and with engines that have this small displacement, virtually ANY bolt-on is going to give you an extremely minimal gain in power that you won't even notice, and it will cost you a shitload of money. say you drop $500-1000 on a full exhaust system, with your displacement that's probably a 5-10hp gain max. doesn't do anything except make it louder.































but the main factor here is the higher powerband on the tach. Hondas have extremely high redlines and most of their horsepower comes at higher RPMs(a little over 8000 in my GS-R, about 7000 in yours). they also make very minimal torque compared to other four-cylinders, so acceleration at lower RPMs suffers a lot(especially off the line). in order to get these cars to be fast, you need to be about 5k-7k on the tachometer, or else it's going to be slow as hell. the only real way for this to be possible is with a 5-speed. you could upgrade your torque converter and have slight results, but once again, it's a lot of money for not much car at all.
