    What's up, I'm new here. No I haven't been to the introduction section yet but I am on my way here shortly. I have been reading as much as I can on the internet and aside from people with buckets full of money that can afford everything. I can't seem to find a decent article for the not so rich people looking to swap out the wimpy 1.5 from the fit with something that has a little bit more kick. Can anyone give me a helping hand and direct me somewhere so that I can do some more reading or does anyone know someone that I can talk to?

    Thanks

    FitFreak.net has some good articles... I love hondaswap's articles too, but i don't know many of us here have Fits. K20R swap. That is all.

    Thanks guys for all the replies. I guess the fit just hasn't been around long enough for people to take too much of a liking for it yet. It's a nice car, it just lacks a bit of power. Anyways, thanks for all the help, if I find anything I will be sure to post it.

    You might try searching for information on swapping the Jazz, not the Fit. The Fit is only known by that name in a few markets- mostly Japan and the USA. Most of the other 70 countries it's sold in use the Jazz name. It's been in production for a while, so I'm sure there are some good engine swap articles available- just not in English! I haven't found them though. :(

    Also FYI, Skunk2 made 210whp with their L15A engine on boost. The R18 might fit in that engine bay too- and it's a nice engine with near old GSR bore/stroke geometry. I think R blocks might start showing up in Fits soon.

    Safety:
    - Change to a better after market brake pads
    - Change to Steel braided hoses, to prevent expansion of rubber brake hose due to heat, this will cause brake fade
    - Change to a bigger aftermarket brake discs for better heat dissipation

    Control:
    - Lower your ride for better handling (coilovers + H/D shocks are better choice)
    - Fix up front top & bottom strut bars (stiffens the front)
    - Fix a strut between tops of rear shock absorber (stiffens the rear)
    - Change to thicker pair of Tie-bar in replace of originals
    - Use a set of Class A to Class A+ sticky tyres (yokohamas)
    - Do up a proper alignment (with +ve camber if you like corners)

    Power:
    - Ligher Flywheel for faster revving
    - H/D Clutch for better grip of gears
    - Short shift for faster changing of gears
    - Final drive for better torque thus faster acceleration
    - Piggyback or ECU remapped for better A/F confi
    - Limited Slip Differential for better control of entering corner & thus faster in exiting
    - A bored Throttle Body for more air intake
    - K&N air filter for better breathing (with heat shield and cold air intake)
    - A good exhaust manifold and system, for better exhaust flow
    - Road / sport camshafts
