    Just Another FA5 Build

    It all started when I was in 5th grade and I was riding with my brother and my dad (Brother was driving) a old 1992 Honda civic hatch and he asked if he could hit vtec (I was like WTF is vtec) my dad said sure, and he floored it... fast foward a couple of years I asked my brother's friend if he would give me a ride in his 1996 built b series turbo, that was really fun for a kid like 13ish.
    So I bought my Orange 2009 Honda civic Si January 2012. Then my love for Honda's Really started even tho it was partially there already, I bought and installed two T1's in a ported box with a 1200 watt amp, bought a taketa cold air intake, Got the mod bug and burnt up my clutch racing so I Bought a exedy stage 1 clutch and lightweight flywheel. Sold my system to buy more go-fast parts, then the unfortunate happened, I totaled the car 06-30-2013. Found a taffy white fa5 with all the right mods (mainly Hondata & RRC) and love at first sight.

    thanks man, the first time i swerved off road to miss a deer (bad idea).
    then This car some dumb girl pulled out in front of me while I was going 40 and with my ninja like reflexes I almost missed her,
    but with the JDM Front and rear I'm not trying to be in any more lol
    next couple steps are to get it put back together, buy new tires, get fender work done, and plastidip it among a few other things
