    dude, he won't be reving to 8000 rpms for long with his d16. thats not healthy at all. you don't have an exhaust? i'd start there.

    that motor doesnt make power that high. your friends motor doesnt like him.

    as far as cheap horsepower is concerned.... good luck

    haha yep pretty much agree entirely with all of thee above ^ lol. and being beat by 1 car length isn't much. but that all depends on whether you raced from a dig, and to what mph. or from a roll, covering what range of mph. you could race him again and beat him for all you know. unless of course you have raced him repeatedly and everything i've said is kinda null at this point lol.

    You can buy a chip from ebay for $15 shipped that will eliminate or increase your rev limit to 8k+. With properly adjusted valves and a healthy motor, it will rev to 8k.

    But not for too long. Motors have rev limits for a reason. If he keeps doing that to his motor with no other work to it, its going to puke up a rod or float/smash the valves.

    As far as cheap upgrades: Ebay intake pipe with a K&N filter is usually good for 5-6hp.. A properly designed header, used with the intake can gain 10hp. But a good header is usually $300+.. I'd suggest DC for the best price/benefit. A free flowing exhaust, something like 1.75 inch tubing with a high flow cat and muffler are good for even more power.. After that, you're looking at spending some cash..

    Best bang for the buck though, would have to be a B18a1 swap. $800ish if you shop around and do your own work.. Great hp and torque gains, makes a fun car even more fun. A b18c1 is better, but 3 times the price.

    Id let him keep winning then save up do a GSR (b18c1) swap and stomp him.

    Other than that to answer you question there is a guy on here with it in his siggy.
    You can either have fast OR cheap...
    Cheap isn't fast and fast isn't cheap.

    You can convert it to manual. Its really not that hard. All the holes are already there. You just gotta swap the tranny and install all the manual parts. Linkage, master/slave cylinder and clutch pedal.

    Think before you write, and stop spreading misinformation. Yes, it can be done. Yes, you will have to fab up a few parts. No, all factory mounting points and "holes" are not there, you have to add several of them.

    Ok im sorry i have done auto to manual swaps on a 89 lude and a 93 accord. I thought all hondas had all the holes and mounting points there.

    Here is a write up on converting it to manual if you wanna look into it.
    Automatic to Manual crx conversion
