    one of the cheapest and most effective is of course turbo/super charging, and of course a good tune

    you can bolt a vtec head on your teggy...the motor that should be in there is a b18a1..but i would turbo like booby said...because for a little more than its going to cost you to put the vtec head on you could turbo and make alot more power

    he said he wanted cheap AND easy. find something that adds 50hp for less than $500 and takes less than 2 hours to install.

    a good turbo set up, a great tune, good head work (bigger valves, port and polish, ect) things like that should get you to your goal. But the hard part is finding what you want your goal is...well money is always the hard part but still

    Turbo setup in that car is possible, its not the roomiest engine bay but it can be done. Wish i had a 1800lb car with a LS swap, that must be sick, Ls vtec is a good way to go, nitrous, turbo. Piston swap, all motor build. Hows spinning 3rd gear feel? Fun aint it?

    that's a very good point, drive something with power that you know you can drive and work your way up, it's not like a muscle car where it's 2500+ lbs where 300 hp isn't that much power. it also should be a streetable build
