    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.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
