    ok, what do you guys think...should i upgrade the exhaust sytem on my d16y8 first or should i upgrade the camshafts first. (i've already gotten headers, i.m., and intake) and plus, which camshafts should i get for my particular engine.

    Definetely get a camfhaft (singular) 1st. A lot of people get intake header and exhaust...but you really dont need 3 inch or 2.5 inch piping with 2 mods on a D series engine. A cam would benefit more. I beleive Skunk2 just released their d series cams, hint hint.

    IF it was my motor, just based on reviews, I'd choose the Skunk2's. Never heard anyting disappointing about them, where as I've seen a couple times where Crowers have snapped, improper installation maybe, but I refuse to believe that everyone that installed Skunk2's did it right either.

    Now just for the record, I hate hearing about how you should avoid a company because one person had a bad experiance, like the Jackson Racing story that everyone sited as a reason for not using their SC, but this is one of a few times. And of course I can show you a hundred satisfied customers too.

    you said header, so I assume you are talking about a inline 4 right?

    You do NOT need 3 inch exhaust on a I4. if you have a header, intake and exhaust you dont even need a 2.5 inch single. Dont even talk about duel exahust on a I-4.
    at most like, maybe a 2 1/4. single.

    to the guy above me , I know of plenty of imorts that would beat you,and whats the deal with calling musle cars american muscle ,there is no muscle about them,they are heavy and eat alot of gas like a fat kid who likes cake, you said you have 400 and some odd horsepower i have seen imports with that or more, there is also a thing called power to weight ratio for example a crx with 250whp or your car with 400 and something, you would get destroyed,it wouldnt even be funny

    and if anybody doent know what i am talking about this guy had a poste stating that he hates imports and keys them and shit

    The best way to deal with children is to ingore them when they whine/scream.

    So I'm sure we can keep this post on track, and the :mullet: will get bored and eventually wander off.

    read in general why I am here. I want to LEARN about imports, i dont wana hate them anymore!

    And true, Muscle cars are heavy, but how can I call it American Muscle? well they are made in America, it has a 400 CI engine, stock pushed out 345hp and 450 lbs torque, and ran 13.4's in the quarter with a automatic, did 0-60 in 5.4 stock. That car has some Muscle. And I have raced everything from a CRX to only 1 skyline. I beat it also :) sure, it might be 3,500 lbs, but its Got some massive Torque and the Hp helps a bit also.
