Future mods:
Would include Bride Adjustable seats, Hasport Motor mounts, engine internals, cf doors, Full Race turbo and honestly I could go on and on. I would want 1000+ hp but realistically I would be happy with about
600hp.

From the owner:
I bought my 2009 Civic Si Sedan brand new off the lot in November of 2008. I searched for something I can do to do my car. Like a beginner I started out with the basics. Exhaust, intake, coilovers, and it just needed more. I did some research on mods and learned about the JDM conversion and it was all history. All the work has been done by One6 Motorsports in Elk Grove Village, IL. The car was tuned by Mikey at Profunction in Schaumburg, IL. She is Skunk2 Certified. Her name is “Asuka.” I chose this name and spelling for a few reasons. My Honda is Japanese, and well she needed a Japanese name to match. I also chose it because in Spanish sugar is translated to “azúcar” and it sounds similar if you drop the “r” and sugar is sweet.
