    High powered auto Hondas are a disaster waiting to happen. Especially with the extra torque of the 2.3. You don't want her dd sitting in your driveway while you source a new tranny after the stock one blows. Go with the I/H/E for the time being and gradually push her towards manual if she wants to build something quicker.

    I really like my Password JDM Carbon Kevlar "power chamber" intake. But really any decent quality one will do. There isn't going to be a huge difference in gains to be found there. Same with exhaust for the most part. Any nice 2.5" free flowing cat back will do. The big difference there is sound of course. My Si came with a no name exhaust with a free flowing but not overly big can style muffler and its not in any way obnoxious. Just a little throatier and slightly louder than stock. The header is the mod you don't wanna totally cheap out on. A nice 4-2-1 design will perform well regardless of brand on a moderately modded car. The difference is the materials they're built with and quality of welds and such. I have a Hytech header on my Si. Awesome header but kind of expensive honestly. If you just want a good design at a decent price at least try to get a stainless one. So it doesn't rust out. Check out the sponsors pages on here. One of them builds nice examples and IIRC they go for a pretty good price.

    so any ebay intake is fine and i kinda dont want to change the stock muffler but i do want to up my pipeing to 2.5 and get a hi flow cat i think its better to keep stock muffler cuz i live in cali and they trip off exhaust tips out here so on the headers i was thinking on honing the head to match AND JUST GETTING SOME dc headers 4-1


    thanks for your feed back you helped alot



    have you ever heard of a junk yard turbo kit ????? i think it you could be a fun thing to do and great way to learn about boosting any info you have on this subject would be great

    EBay piping with a legit filter like K&N. Thats pretty much what i wanted to do on the muffler end. Just grab one off a new Si or something. But I'm gettin rid of it anyway. 4-1s would be fine and DC is a good and widely available brand. Just make sure its coated. Non coated dcs rust like a mofo. You could port the exhaust chambers to match if you want. maybe do some blending, smoothing, and gasket matching on the intake side if you feel like it. but without some cams or something there's really no point. just bolt the header I'm and be done.

    People have been sourcing stock turbos off cars in junkyards for decades. I've never done a boosted build and haven't looked to much into it but there are plenty of writeups out there. But again, I wouldnt do It If you've still got the slushbox in the car.
