No, it will become too fast. JDM horsepower is a lot more than you can handle. The nearest Checker Autoparts rear wing will also become stuck to your car.

No, you can''t. Front bumper and headlights have to be modified to install on the USDM models, JDM Civic is very different in style: http://www.carpw.com/pictures/honda/...e_R_2007_1.jpg You won't be able to just hook it up in place of the USDM parts, you'll need to do a bit of modifying, nothing a good body shop won't be able to do for you. Same for the rear end: http://images.paultan.org/thumb-civic_modulo_2.jpgIt's completely different, you'll have to modify it to get it to work. Those JDM parts are super expensive too. So if you can find them for a good price (not knock off parts either) than just make sure you find a good body shop that can install them for you.I'd estimate the conversion to cost at least $4k.
