Alright, the 2001 Civic (7th Generation) has a newer engine which Honda didnt use before. The D17 is hard to get power out of with the basic bolt ons (intake, header, exhaust) and more than likely you will feel the car get slower. The best results that I got from my ride was suspension upgrades. Your car will handle better, corner faster, and you can enjoy it every single time you drive.As for power, there are a few turbo kits for it but you have to find the few tuner companies that offer it. The car can make good numbers off of it. Personally, I am waiting for the K20 engines to come down in price (RSX engines) since those are good tuning engines and they swap easily into the 7th gen civic. Check out this site, great resource for the civics. http://www.civicforums.com/forums/18...en-honda-civic

eek...basically, you want to take the car back to wherever you bought it, and tell them you want your money back, the d17 is basically useless... there's only one turbo kit available for it, and its on ebay, but other than that, if you can find a full front clip out of an rsx type-s thats the only way youre ever gonna get that car to go "fast" bc if you pull the subframe out of an rsx, you can swap the k20a2(avoid the k20a1) into the ex, here's a complete guide on how to do it, but its gonna cost you ALOT! http://www.xproductionz.com/k20swap/k20swap.html so good luck, and if you actually decide to do this let me know, and ill lend a hand or two...
