    lol i am in the same boat with my b16 i want to make more power, but you can start buy doing a vtec head swap that will help out alot header cams intake manifold ram air intake all depends on the pockets and what you want

    i just built a budget 18a1, i put integra type r jdm p73 pistons in, i shaved the rods myself, (not recomended unless you know what your doing) i think it uped my compression from 9.2 to 10.8 so i had significant hp gains with just that, but a nice vtec head would be really nice, especially with some stage 2 cams, i would venture to say that with a vtec head and cams you could get 200 at the wheels

    good luck

    I hope you want both cams. :p

    What year a1 is it? If you're sticking with non vtec, try to find a 94+ head, they have improved and flow better, get the intake mani along with it if you're not getting a skunk2 or AEB type.

    I'd say turbo it, but if you're staying N/A, I think PR3 or P30 pistons will fit on the LS rods, even if they don't you could have them machined and have a 11.1-11.3 CR, PnP, 404's sound good to me.

    Actually I can't tell you much more, I was never really into All motor unless it was LSvtec, and I was gonna turbo that anyway.
