Default My Si Build sponsored by PHANTASM

Before I begin this elaborate and maybe tediously boring thread I just want to state that I am in no way very mechanically inclined and have never done anything like this therefore bear with me if it seems like incessant rambling. I want to take this opportunity to thank Phantasm Motorsport who sponsored my car, Jdogg and Danny from Phantasm for answering my never-ending badger of questions and have provided solutions to meet all my nit picking needs. RLZ Engineering for their work, TC for helping with my tranny and also Zeb, for helping during this process.

In September of Last year I acquired a 2000 Civic Si in dire need of some serious TLC. The first task at hand was to strip the interior and prep it for a much needed paint job.




I wanted the civic looking as stock as possible but with a personal touch. The Chargespeed lip for the civic has to be one of the sexiest lips out there and surprise surprise Phantasm had it in stock. They let me borrow the front lip and side skirts for a mock-up on the car and Nam suggested a cwest rear bumper. Everything fit great and looked hot, however this car was being built with an adamant intention of daily driving my baby and therefore the kit seemed a little excessive.




I chose to remove the stock Si wing and use a Mugen front lip stock Si side skirts and a rear lip. I also got a stock Si front lip painted too. Three months, going through multiple color possibilities and two paint jobs later it finally rolled out of Maaco, yes you read right I did say Maaco.

The next step was the stance of the car. I went with:
D2 Suspensions
D2 Rear Camber Kit
Skunk 2 Front Camber Kit
Omni Rear Control Arms
Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Nitto Neo-Gen Tires
Rotora Rotors
Hawk HPS brake pads
I went with Rota GT3 rims.




Dual Beam HID kit @ 4300k (White)
HID Fog Lights @ 3000k (Yellow)



I wanted to customize the interior a little but yet have a stock like feel to it. I put in Type Red carpeting, dyed parts of the interior black, suede armrest, suede roof liner and for now some heavy duty rubberized floor mats which are awesome for the every day foot traffic. The head unit from the center console was taken out and was placed in a JDM console that is located in the bottom tray in front of the shifter. The JDM console is a perfect one-din slot with a sliding cup holder like what the Integra has. The head unit is a Sony with a removable faceplate that holds 1Gb of music. In my previous car a 99 Camaro I finally got a carputer setup working and a carputer seemed like the best bang for your buck for an all in one system. The 7Ē touchscreen is the front end for the carputer and fits in the center console of the civic with a little modification and a little fabrication. The Si now has a cd player, mp3 player, dvd player, divx player, 160Gb of storage space, navigation and also a fully integrated GPS tracker which can be tracked via internet at any given point in real time. The seats I settled on were a set of 2004 civic Si seats with its black suede and red stitching it matched perfectly with the color combo I was trying to keep. Hung @ Phantasm welded some Sparco brackets to the 2004 Si seat rails and now it sits perfectly in my car. An anodized red Sparco steering wheel with an anodized red NRG quick release and a short hub added to the personal touch. The short hub when combined with the quick release hub lets the steering wheel sit as close to the position of the stock steering wheel, ie. I can reach the indicator lever without removing my hand from the steering wheel. I wanted to keep cruise control and a horn too along with my steering wheel so after a little bit of wiring I hooked the cruise control up to an extra set of dual buttons from Sparco and the horn is wired to the buttons on the steering wheel itself. A Type R shift boot with black leather Razo shift knob with red stitching was used to keep my theme going.






Well three weeks after I got it on the road I hit a raccoon. 2 min from home and a raccoon jumps in front of my path, broke my front lip, bumper, punched a hole in my radiator & broke a fin on the fan. Iím usually not a violent person but if that raccoon was not dead I wouldíve beat it down with a shoe and reversed over its head. Well back to the body shop it went. While it was there I got a Fiber Images carbon fiber hood and got that painted to match the car for the stock look. I needed a radiator anyway so a Koyo went in with a FAL fan.

I was debating on what I wanted to do as far as the power train was concerned. I was going to get the Edelbrock turbo kit, slap it on and call it a day. Well that didnít work out. Danny and Jdogg talked me into a custom kit. So a couple of weeks down the line my turbo stuff came in:
Love-Fab Sidewinder Manifold
Garrett GT3071R Dual Ball Bearing Turbo
Turbine AR - 82
Turbine Housing Style - T3 Flanged GT 4 bolt
Compressor Inlet Size - 4inches
V-Band option
Tial 44mm External Waste gate
Tial 50mm BOV
Precision 780cc Injectors
Warlbro 255 Fuel Pump
Aluminum 2.5" Piping
AEM EMS
AEM Fuel Pressure Regulator
AEM Fuel Rail

While everything was sitting all pretty a B16 Darton mid sleeve block showed up. I was planning on building the motor slowly and slowly it did come together. I got a B16 head and after a mild port and polish by Danny the head and block was dropped off at RLZ. The block was bored out to 84mm and decked, the head got one of Bradís crazy valve jobs.
The internals for the block would be:
Eagle Rods
Honda Blue Bearings
Wiseco 84mm Pistons
Cometic 84mm Head-gasket
Moroso Oil Pan
Honda Water-pump
Honda Oil Pump & Seal
Honda Tensioner
Honda Crank Pulley Key-way
Honda Thermostat
B16 Crank Pulley
Gasket Set Block & Head
Password JDM Cam Seals
ARP Exhaust Manifold Stud Kit
ARP Head Stud Kit
Greddy Timing Belt 13554502

The internals for the head:
Ferrea Valves
Rocket Springs
Omni Retainers
CTR Cams

While the head and block was getting worked on Danny fabbed a custom down-pipe and everything was sent out to Tbone on Honda-tech to get coated. Pistons got a ceramic coating, the manifold, down pipe and the turbo housing got a 2000 degree coating.



Two weeks later everything came together. The block came back from RLZ, the head I got back thanks to Brad and Jdogg the same day I drove up there. The pistons that was coated Tbone sent directly to RLZ which was needed to bore the block out. Tbone sent everything back to me. Danny had to reassemble my head and Jdogg measured all the clearances for the bearings etc and unfortunately the ACL bearings just did not clear, Cleavite bearings didnít do the trick either so he suggested OEM Honda blue bearings. That was special ordered and came in a week later after which Danny and Jdogg measured the clearances again and everything seemed right so my engine was put together. The motor was wrapped every night after it got worked on with some commercial grade cling wrap just to keep foreign objects out.

thanks guys.. its been almost 20 months and it still drives awesome.. it is out of my hands now though.. I miss it.. all that car needed was oil changes every 3000 miles and it was fine for the year something that I owned it.. loved every minute of it..

Go to Phantasm.. I've achieved what I wanted, well overshot my expectations really. I set out to get a 300hp reliable daily driver. I ended up with 466hp @ 18lbs and 387 @ 13lbs with power steering, cruise control and AC!!! All the amenities you would need for a daily driver...

So it is possible.. very knowledgable and skilled guys..

the basics of the setup could be duplicated for that.

there is over 250$ in just the upper radiator hose... so some of the excessiveness would have to go. pretty much everything in the engine bay was replaced, no corners cut at all here...
