    I believe it was dyno proven that the ITR manny only makes power above 8k on the b16, so unless you have larger cams it really won't be worth it. I say save up....

    Im with E on the camgears/tuning you can pick up pretty good HP doing that just MAKE SURE YOU TUNE IT!
    so many people get online and look up a so to speek standard +/- mart and put their car there..... every car is different

    anyways do that then save for boost also some lightweight wheels would be nice =) check out Bs

    Buy a set of civic type-r pistons and a lightened flywheel (8-12lbs) or valves springs-- retainers and a ecu chip to make the car rev hard.
