    before i make a purchase i was wondering if 96-00 civic struts will fit a 91 si?
    and a vafc doesnt allow me to change my redline correct?

    Is your motor built? If not, then there's no point in messing with the redline...

    yeah, tuning is key. for these two main reasons.

    1. that kind of set up would run like complete garbage with out tuning
    2. it wont last. you would destroy your motor.

    Honestly I wouldn't want that motor build for a daily driver, it's going to be pretty high strung with all the race-prepped parts in there.

    And yeah, if you're seriously going to do a build like this, then crapping out on the tuning would be one of the worst choices you could make, especially if you're looking for a reliable daily driver...

    ok so retune it is.

    another question milling my head .025 will give me 11.5:1 cr
    but my piston to deck height will be -.0000, is that good or bad?(thats also with .027 headgasket)
    or will i have to just clay it to see if i have clearence?
