    your best bet will be intake,header, and exhaust. get an sohc vtec head also. that should be in your budget if you plan wisely.

    One of the best Power/Money upgrades is NOS. I can't think of much else that gives u that much power for that little expense.

    My bad blanco. NOS is easier to type than nitrous oxide system. But i do think he should get two of the big bottles, and before race wars.
