    arp head bolts
    dc sport header
    apexi cat back
    mugen chipped p28
    v-afc(untuned)
    I really want to make this car a clean looking fast honda about 10-11 seconds(non-turbo) but ive been hearing there are some problems with this engine setup. Like oil problems and such not exactly sure. Im looking about dropping about 8-10 grand into the motor/tranny and would really like some help with suggestions and parts to make this car move. Im already thinking about boreing the engine out to a 2.0 and such but ANY suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated. Im also sorry if i posted this in the wrong forum like i said im a newb to this forum. So thanks alot guys and or girls. :)

    humm very possible. let me the first to ask and make a suggestion. sell the motor and everything. get a k series and with left over thousands,get cams,springs retainers,p&p, maybe higher compression blah blah blah all the good stuff that you want for all motor. 5 grand in a k series motor can make it to 11 seconds. that is....... in the right car.
    Is this a daily driver or weeken worrior?
    OK if you dont want the K motor. This is what i have done to my lsvtec and some that i wish i could do if i had your money

    Head:

    professional P&P,high flow intake manny, stage 3 cams ( i like Toda,crower, i have skunk2 stage 2 and love 'em), Definitly get dual valve springs/retainers. I'd get valves(as long as they wont break off when they hit)
    As far as the block i would make that fucker bullet proof. make sure you get high flow oil pump ,water pump, etc to keep that motor flowing right. then i would get a lightweight crank, H-beam rods,HIGH comp pistons. I would go 12.1 if you have someone that know what they are doing when you tune it. Get it sleeved. If you bore the motor to a 2.0 that would be a better reason to get this new stuff. I have the Eagle forged kit with JE pistons. Get it tuned VERY CAREFULLY. Hondata,crome,etc do the research to choose YOUR best option. Get a quaife lsd in you tranny and see what it runs!!!

    OHHH by the way you might want to either get a 88 crx to putr that motor in or get rid of everything in that integra ( i'm assuming since you didnt mention the car) from the interior/trunk/seats carpet, you name it. your gonna need all the help you can get to get in to low 12's let alone 11's.

    well thats what i would do. Peop;e are going to post their dream motors so your gonna get alot of ideas. Just remember IF YOU WANT A RACE CAR BUID A RACE CAR,IF YOU WANT A D-D BUILD A D-D. Both do not mix. I dont think you make a honda an 11 second daily driver. that is with A/C,power steering,good idle and somewhat good gas mileage. not happening

    Oh and another thing i have NO idea about any of the ecu stuff concerning hondata i know of it read about it but it confuses the hell out of me. And im planning doing almost all toda parts in my car. Planning on dropping 2200 on that SWEET and SEXY toda sports injection, cams, titatium retainers, valve springs, clutch kit, fly wheel, cam gears. :) I cant wait to get this beast started.

    may i thread jack for a moment? thanks:D I need a crank man.Ls crank. whatever fits the ls rods. Im asumming only the ls crank.

    man an allmotor 11 sec car? kinda hard man. your talkin about high. wait..HIGH compression and lots of fuel. lots of air flow to the head. strong block to hold all that pressure and rpms. i dont think its possible to make it a dd to be honest. once you start messing with the cams your prolly gonna get choppy idle. loud as fuck if you ITB's. good luck man.

    Don't buy all Toda parts. They are good don't get me wrong but for the money you can get parts that will out perform for less money. For a daily driver I would stay away from the "sports injection" aka individual throttle bodies. They may make a little bit more power than a manifold but not much more. ITB's are much harder to tune also

    I thought 99 ex had power everything, windows, sunroof, door locks. You should have started with a lighter car to begin with, like an eg hatch or crx.
