    k i'll be buying another honda soon. i'm fairly knowlegeable as far as working on cars go and can do most things myself.

    i'm not looking for anything fancy. my goal is mid 14's in a 5th gen hatch.
    i would prefer to do a swap myself so i know it's done right but if the price was right i would buy a stock looking hatch with a swap already done.

    my plans include:
    5th gen hatch
    b16a sir2
    dc 4-2-1 header
    AEM cold air
    custom 2 1/4 exhaust with a magnaflow and no cat or a hi flow model
    plugs, wires, a coil, and maybe an MSD SCI ignition
    fluidyne radiator
    a lightweight 15x7 with 205/50 or 16x7 rim with 205/45 pradas or maybe something else. price dictates, just have to be pretty grippy and have decent life
    suspension techniques sway bar set
    energy suspension full bushing set
    kyb AGX shocks
    a good progressive rate spring. don't want any more than 2" down maybe a little less than that (what are you using)
    and some various brake upgrades (lines, slotted rotors, good pads)

    i just want to build a modestly powered good handling car. like i said 14.5 1320's
    is enough. i'm not rich, all that stuff costs enough. Is this plan reasonable? maybe an addition or suggestion?
