    Over the weekend i was lucky enough to find 96 ex for $390

    it's Not VTEC :'(

    I was wondering how can I do a D16 VTEC.
    How can I lose weight/ have better power to ratio?
    How can I have better power for this lil 4 Cyl/How much could i crank out?

    I have only about 1000 dollas for parts.

    Thank you :D

    Well This is a good site "I trust" for most genral data on cars. here is you car
    1996 Honda Civic specs, auto safety at Edmunds

    Claims 2 have 127Hp and 107LBS torque.

    Now with a 1,000 bucks you can go a few ways... Strait N/A tune which I would recomend over getting a used turbo kit off ebay.

    an N/A tune if you read around you can push 150HP... I think the member Blanco had a link kicking around were he changed the cams, pistons, crank shafts... ect to get this out of a 1.6 SOHC motor.
