    okay, now i jsut got a new honda and was wondering what kind of horsepower upgrades there are....i have cold air intake and was planing on exhauast, but what else is there really?

    i know on my old mustang i can do all kinds of shit to beef up the HP, but on these new fuel injected cars its somewhat of a mystery to me

    anyone gots ideas?

    intake and exhaust dont provide any serious hp gains. civics are shitty cars, i still dont know why kids buy them and think they're fast... anyways,
    if you got the money, you can put in a b18c1 engine (from a teg gsr) i think its about 170hp at the crank.

  5. Add an exhaust pipe large enough to smuggle illegal immigrants in, and you're set. Beer,

    I HATE those little blue lights that people put on the hood.
    And they always put them in the same place... jazz it up a bit!

    Yeah, you already made your first mistake...Purchasing a Honda. Don't get me wrong, they're reliable cars, but throw them away for racing. Go for any import that carries the "flip-light" trend of the Eighties.

    Shameless, drop me an e-mail. I'm in the middle of my 240-Silvia conversion. And you're back in the state of Irish people using the number 40 after their names, and in olden times Starbucks was the hot spot, correct?

    I've seen people stick them closer to the front of the hood,
    and I even saw one with them on the sides just above the wheels.

    The must have modified the led... for extra torque?
