Teng Xiong: 1997 Honda Civic

Teng Xiong's 1997 Honda Civic started out stock. Over the span of about 4 years, everything has been gutted and updated. The main purpose of the build was for daily driving (the A/C was functional) with good, clean music and weekend cruising. Xing themed his build in Silver and Black, along with the carbon / clear hood to show off the heart of the engine and carbon / clear trunk to show off the heart of the system.

Currently, the car sits on Blox drag suspension all-around with Skunk2 Pro front upper control arms and rear camber kit. The rear is completely polished with a APEXi World Sport 2 cat-back bolt on exhaust, Function 7 polished lower control arms, and a polished DC strut bar. The whole underside has been converted to 99-00 Si including rear disk brakes.

The interior has power windows converted w/ OEM switches. Auto Page remote start alarm w/ stick shift bypass, power door locks and auto remote window roll up. The Interior had a climate control upgrade 'the mother of all mods" on the manual to digital controls with working heat and A/C. The entire interior has been re-wrapped with the factory Honda color and wrapped to match the fully converted Si dash, including the ceiling, seats, doors, center console.

Every aspect has been modified, and ready for show and competition - best of both worlds!
