Ahmed's HPF Stage 2.5

Picture time! Ahmed came in to replace his old downpipe that was damaged in an accident. Car looks GREAT!

By the way... Ahmed is the only customer local to us here in Portland with an HPF Kit.

Make your kits run on vegetable oil and patchouli oil and you'd sell more kits locally.

Hey thanks for the compliments guys!! Yeah I scraped the crap out of the flex part of the down pipe on a big ass bump so I had the whole thing replaced. Can't wait to get it back!! Pictures look awesome Kirk and thanks for all your help! Oh and I'm glad I switched from Varrstoen wheels back to my RACs.. they really pop!

Definitely one of my favorite mods on the car, along with the euro mirrors.

I think I keep my car really nice. And I do, for the most part. But it is a pimple compared to some of the stunners I see in these threads. Just fantastic.

There is so much to be said for clean lines and accessory choices. It is a subtle ART to put all those carefully chosen, separate upgrades on a car where the end result is mostly subliminal. No ONE thing jumps out at you. The package works as a whole.

We all have seen plenty of horror shows (17 years olds and Civics), but so few that really rise to the very top of the art form of subtle modding.

. Who ever designed that CSL rear trunk lid should win some sort of lifetime achievement award. I keep telling myself it is NOT necessary. Oh, but it IS.

Ahmed, well done, sir!

Thanks Bdave, I appreciate it. I try to keep the mods as clean as possible, even the lip I chose carefully. My next mod will probably be 6766 paired with the AEM Infinity when it arrives (definitely want wheel speed based TC). Care to join me? .

Haha. I actually almost pulled the trigger on ProEFI but decided to wait it out to see how the two match up. Hope we get to see some S54 Infinity action soon!
