    Punctuation is your friend, please use it.

    In regards to your build, I would tune with CROME. Its a well known program. If you are staying all motor you need to focus on air delivery and getting the exhaust gases out, so yes a decent header will be necessary to make decent power. eBay crap will not cut it. Hytech makes a nice header. Or if you are more into budget, check out a DC or Megan Racing header. As far as an intake manifold, you could stick with your stock mani if you want to. You probably won't make as much power as you would with a Skunk2 or Blox mani, though. Take your head to a reputable shop for headwork. Have the intake manifold and intake ports matched, have the exhaust ones matched too.

    Good luck. Do more research and ask questions if you have them.

    well the guy that is doing my machine work builds honda racing boats for a living. what about cam gears fuel rail reg and pump and lines? and also i heard that the ctr oil pump should b used for more oil volume, and what about the N1 crank pulley is that worth my time and money? and as far as the intake mani the itr/ctr one isnt all that great and that a skunk2 or ne other atfermarket one would b better. and i fogott to tell u i have a password jdm intake and other then the bolt ons i would love to stay pretty much simple looking/stock i dont want to overhype ne thing ;)

    Keep that intake. As for the manifold, you can get decent performance out of an ITR or CTR mani and some headwork. You can use a CTR oil pump or aftermarket, its all about your budget. Its recommended to go with something higher volume when building. I'd stay away from crank pulleys. I've heard mixed reviews on them. Premature bearing wear and other problems are synonymous (sp) with the lightened crank pulley from what I hear.

    You're going all motor, of course it will be somewhat stealthy. At least you don't have to worry about trying to hide an intercooler. ;)

    They are essentially knock-offs of the Skunk2 manifolds...
