    A cheaper way of seeing big power gains would be nitrous oxide. Really turbo is the only way to go if you wanna see big numbers. Start off by getting some aggressive cams, simple port and polish(not nessasary but a good thing to do), low comp pistons, and a decent exhaust with a t3/04 turbo kit(custom is way cheaper than a already put together kit). If you wanna get an already put together kit then I would go with a full-race kit. If you wanna see decent numbers with na i hope you got deep pockets or else it will never happen.

    Unless your dad has been porting honda heads specificly for 5-10 years, I would have someone else do it. Its an art that very few really know.

    At this point forget about modifying your engine, and modify your mind. Do lots of searches, and read as much as you can about modifications, cams, compression, etc.

    Otherwise you are going to get people randomly recommending parts with out considering the fact that they need to work together as a system. The end result will be a lot of money spent for very little gained.

    brain, its whats for dinner.

    ya u got a point, but i jus wanna do some drags and get some quarter miles going and some dyno testing, build me a real car :D ...and my dad has been a tech for over 20 years, with a pro honda builder on our side, along with a pro sprint car driver...so i think porting will be a breeze...we did it on my racing 400ex and its the fastest 400ex ive ever seen or rode on
