    If you are planning on going turbo dont buy the stage 2 cams, they are more of an all motor cam is most cases. Save your money for some boost. You will get more horsepower and torque then anything you could add to your current setup. Just make sure you dont run more then 7-8 psi and that you have proper injectors and tunning. I would recommend 440cc RC injectors and tunning with a obd1 p28 using CROME Pro. That would be a reliable setup that would make great power. Good luck.

    Ya that's an oxymoron. b16 torque its like saying hey, look at that skinny fat chick.

    Anyway ya the only way to get more torque is using a large displacement engine. Unless you plan on turboing it which won't help you off boost but when its in boost hold on. If you are planning to boost you can run whatever psi you want as long as you stay under around 260whp on a stock b16. You don't need RC injectors if you want to save some money you can use DSM injectors or rx-7 460cc injectors with an resistor box out of a 89-91 civic. They work just fine and will cost you about 400 bucks less. For fuel management yes crome is a good one but pay the extra and get crome pro. It has more plugins and has more tuning features.

    If you want to go the turbo route make sure you look into it carefully and get it tuned by someone who knows what they are doing because turboed engines are very touchy and if the wind blows the wrong way they detonate and kabloowey. The NA route is more expensive to get a tonne of power out of but is more reliable and harder to make detonate. They will also take more abuse. It all depends what your hp goals are. 200whp with ls/vtec is very achievable.

    YEah boooi!

    No worryz Bra, I be catchun whatcha layun dooooun!


    But that won't help your off boost torque. Unless your at 4500 rpm in boost you won't be doing much better than you are now. Hope your planning on a complete engine build for 300whp and 180wtq.
