This was my car.
My Civic was sold in November of 1997 to make room for my 1998 Honda Accord V6 Sedan. This page is here as a reference for those who might be interested in what I did with my car. A model that put Honda squarely in the Sport Compact Car craze.
1993 Honda Civic DX Coupe

Comments: I removed the resonator
assembly from the stock airbox (the part containing the Airfilter) which
resulted in a very hollow boxy sound from the intake. I remedied this by
lining the bottom of the stock airbox with thin 1/8 inch thick eggcrate
shaped foam held in place with 3M spray adhesive. This significantly reduced
the hollow box sound and made the car sound more throaty under full throttle
acceleration. I think it might have helped midrange acceleration marginally
as well but it might have been the placebo factor. The Cusco Adjustable
Cam Sprocket made a huge difference in the throttle response of the car.
Normally DX 1.5l engines are weak in the lower RPM range. Using the
Sprocket, I was able to enhance the lower RPM Range and actually give me
more torque in the 2000-4000 RPM range. The overall feeling is that the
car is much faster and still revs up to 6000 RPM quite freely. I recently replaced my stock airbox with a DC Sports Max Air intake. The intake noise it much louder now and howls at anything above 4000 RPM. (Sounds kind of GS-R'ish..)
I'm hoping to have sounds of my car soon. The sound perfectly compliments the exhaust note IMO.
