    get your block freshened up...get new rings, the cylinders honed, some new bearings...that will ready your block. If you are looking for more than 250hp, I'd spend the scratch on some forged pistons. A good valve job and a nice camshaft will help you out as well.

    so ur saying that i could get 250wph without turbocharging it? i was thinking in putting a short ram intake, intake manifold, headers, and high flow exhaust, i also wanted to replace the stock camshafts for stage 1, also the throttle body, what do u think i should do after?

    i said stage one camshafts cuz my buddy put stage two on his '00 civic Si, and it was running too rich then we changed them back to the stock ones and it came out that it ran faster with the stock ones.
