Easy to tune
By 4th Gen Modifier on
1991 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback
Bought this thing after it was beat on to crap. Very easy to fix up and modify. Great entry level auto-x ride. Wishbone suspension by far beats the econo macpherson setup of the newer gen. Stock sohc engine is worthless, but again, easy to replace and swap out. Prone to lots of rust with its age. Very little maintanence needed if it's just transportation that you need. Very light, with an engine swap and an adjustable suspension and you have yourself a good sporty car. Parts are interchangeable with integra's which adds to the availability of parts. A lot can be done to the car despite its age.
Lightweight, surprisingly good bucket seats, easy to find parts, easy to modify, swappable parts with Integras and other civics, wishbone suspension, low ratio gearing, sleeper exterior look, extensive aftermarket support.
Can't help but be stuck with the more boxy design, wind drag is slightly more than the newer 92-95's, small engine bay, front crossmember has to be replaced with a custom one for big engine add ons, thin exterior panels.
