Supercharged FA5 Honda Civic Si Could Be Stellar Daily Driver

Kraftwerks Supercharged FA5 Honda Civic Si K20

A long mod list, including boost, makes this FA5 Civic Si desirable, but is it worth the cash?

This 2009 Honda Civic Si that we found on Craigslist really stood out to us during our regular perusal of cars for sale. At first glance, it just appears to be another modified FA5 Si. Wheels, the low and the requisite HFP lip kit give this Civic Si the necessary flare for a cool daily driver, though that wheel fitment is a bit rough.

However, when you pop the hood, it all makes sense. This Si is packing glorious K20 power, duh, but it’s clearly not stock under the hood. That K20Z3 is forcefed air thanks to a Kraftwerks supercharger kit. And thanks to supporting mods like the Skunk2 race header, full 3-inch exhaust and Hondata FlashPro tune by VitViper, this borderline sleeper Si makes a claimed 340whp. That’s almost double the power output of a stock K20 Si.

The seller claims the car is super clean, runs great and is ready to sell. With just 93,000 miles on the odometer, it’s also barely broken in. So, is the $12,300 asking price just right? We think so, would certainly like to hear your take on it, so drop a comment down below.
