    Well it looks like you've got a decent start. When you say track only, what exactly do you mean? Drag? Auto-cross? Road racing?

    Save the hassle and just go GSR turbo nitrous. :D of course in my honest personal opinion, I think the strip is for muscle cars. Imports own the rest like road racing, auto x, drift, etc.. you name it. I mean it's cool and all when you see a 4-banger out there tearin up the drag but the V8's own the strip.

    To "do" the timing belt? As in re-time the motor? Replace the belt? Depends how long it takes you to do it it's not that hard. And how old is the waterpump?

    And if you want to be different the only way is to either make your car AWD, RWD, V8 that bitch for drag, because every single possible swap has been done with a Honda/Acura. So have the 3 I suggested but not many.

    water pump will prob be good for another 50-75k I'd say (personal experience yet to have a honda water pump fail on me under 200k) - as far as the timing belt - it's not hard really easy and if you can do your own cam gears and shafts shouldn't be hard at all pretty straight forward - setting the timing is generally pretty quick too - buddy of mine does my timing and is dead on in under 10-15 minutes doing it by hand and eye...
