    Re: Starting over in my 2011 civic SI

    Finished big 3 a little while ago, upgraded to an optima yellow top under the hood. I will spare all of the details and just show the final result for the big 3. In a nut shell... All stinger HPM 0 gauge wrapped in tech flex, fused with mini ANL fuses due to space limitations. I used a piece of flat bar to mount the fuse blocks, I have a billet battery tie down on the way to dress it up a bit. I hate the route of the stock wiring, no slack to change it. Honda must have saved a few cents on routing the wire this way.

    Let me know what you think.

    Sorry about the bad photos, lighting was tough.

    Re: Starting over in my 2011 civic SI

    Problem is... Everything I have seen on disabling eld has been in older vehicles, I know my ECM is smarter then some of the vehicles I have read about but I have no idea how the eld will effect this particular vehicle. I would like the ability to enable the eld when not drawing lots of current because the alternator can present a large load to the engine and effect gas milage.

    Yeah that is true you have a point as your car is a 2011....I don't know anyone with this particular issue as most ppl having been installing in older Honda vehicles....Guess doing the relay setup would be the way to go for now.....

    Re: Starting over in my 2011 civic SI

    Ok, so I kind of let this build log die off I guess. I finished my install today, I was in a bit of a hurry to get it done so I didnt take many pictures. I will take some pictures tomorro and post them up but I will show the pics I took a while ago. Went a new route on some of the stuff, here is what the final result was.

    Head unit: Alpine INE-S920HD
    front stage: Kicker SS 6.5" comps
    Rear fill: kicker 5.25" (crappy ones)
    Mid/High amp: Audison SR4
    Sub: 2013 Alpine Type R
    Sub Amp: Audison SR1D
    Optima yellow top under the hood.

    Here is the amp rack I built, fits behind the rear seat.


    Here is the head unit after install (just bought it this morning)


    More to come soon, will be deadening doors this week.

    I didn’t want to make the electrical upgrades that it was going to take to power that DC to its full potential. The electrical in a Civic is weak, I plan on getting a project vehicle soon so I will slap some big subs in that.

    I like the type R so far, I was impressed with how loud it got on only 460 watts.

    It does look pretty nice, but I happened to cover it up with a grill. I had a brand new w6v2 in my car at one point, wife took my car shopping and toss a bunch of stuff in the trunk and ended up putting a nice big hole in my sub so I figured I would try and prevent that this time.

    Re: Starting over in my 2011 civic SI

    FYI, i came up with an ELD bypass that doesn't provide an open circuit for the PCM 5V wire
    Honda Electrical Load Detection (ELD) Bypass - Honda Accord Forum - Honda Accord Enthusiast Forums

    basically I replicate the voltage drop that the PCM expects to see when the ELD is loaded by using a resistor. I allow for stock operation by including a relay and a switch (fuel economy is the reason for the ELD).

    i'd like to see more pics of the amp rack build.
