Mvrcos626 FA5 to FD2 Conversion Build!

Felt like starting a build thread for my 2011 Civic Si purchased back in October 2020. Plans for the car at the moment is to get full bolt-ons, tune and start on the FD2 conversion. :grimacing:

Car when purchased:

Some exterior TLC needs to be done like small things missing and replacing door window rubber seals ( I live in southern New Mexico dry weather kills those seals)
Car was already lowered on Tein Coilovers and rear Skunk 2 Camber kit.
She also had a 2.5 catback Greddy exhaust which is for sale if anyone is interested! :sunglasses:

BNIB Oem Floor mats:

Installed Hybrid Racing Short Shifter and Cables, CMC upgrade:


Car was under the knife for a while; installed Hasport Billet 70a Mounts, Hybrid Racing Cold Air Intake, Hondata Flashpro and fresh oil and transmission fluid change! ( sorry no pic of parts i was eager to install them):

Ended the year installing Skunk2 Alpha Header, and 3 inch Full Race Exhaust!


Currently how the car sits to start off 2021! Car is tuned by E-Tunez online, she is running amazing and sounds great! Ordered some OEM FD2 parts that should be here soon hopefully so I can begin the conversion and get her ready for paint! (will be keeping stock Dyno Blue Pearl)


My first NWP build forum so I will try to document as much as I can with quality pictures! Shoot me ideas on what wheels to get! Been looking at track wheels but really want some wheels to set off the car! :upside_down_face:

I absolutely love New Mexico. Car looks great indeed. You didn’t shy away at all by jumping into making it your own.

I think I follow you on Insta! Car looks great man! Just sourcing the parts is a hassle with all these wait times… I currently have some items being shipped to me but I probably won’t get to the conversion till mid February :disappointed:

Hopefully by the end of May, I will have more updates with parts, as of now the car just sits and collects dust but I did slap on the rear taillights and CF trunk, still need to modify the trunk a bit ( install license plate lights and a bit more adjusting) the car is super dirty at the time so please ignore :disappointed:
