heya and welcome to the swizzap y0!
Just red out the tailights with Testor's Translucent Candy Apple Red paint. Cheaper and looks a lot better.
For the body, get a mild kit, if any. Those ones with snow plow front ends and mesh are the worst out there IMO. For a hood, I like the vader style cf hoods. Seen them on a car and they look really nice.
Keep the DC exhaust, but don't plan on their tie/strut bars.r A lot of people here claim they flex a bit.
my computer will be riced out soon.
Hello,welcome,and for you a disgusting pic...
^^^^--- WTF was that?
welcome to the site
DC sports is not the best stuff. don't be fooled by the name or the ads.
the greddy exhaust is fine. no need to replace it.

body kits are gay
they weigh you down, and frankly, the money they cost to get, install, and paint, can get your car to perform a lot better.
remeber, cars with dents are fast
cars that look "good" or fast, are 99% of the time, slower than a stock DX
200 WHP from a b16 is going to cost you a pretty penny in mods. stock motor and the mods i listed above and your exhaust, you are going to put about 135-145 to the wheels from a b16. 60 horse is not easy to get.
frankly, without going turbo or nitrous, its going to be nearly imposible with bolt ons. it will require totally re-worked motor, super hig compression, etc etc- and that ends up being less streetable.
if you really want 200 wheel horse power, you better have the wallet to back it up, and if it were me, i wouldn't even attempt it with a b16
How Santa finds his elfs ........and welcome.
i guarantee someone will see that pic and make it their new avatar.... ...oh yeah, welcome...
I was new one time and didnt bother posting a threat I went into the message boards and starting saying what I had adn everything, the people here at HS rule they kind, respectible adn courteous they understand you DONT know everything and will help you in making you understadn that. However e\welcome to the forum I drive a 90 Integra and I'm doing a swap in it now, a replacement B18A1. Have fun and welcome to the site!
From one new guy to another, I think we lucked out finding this site, I've found the posts very informative and helpful, everyone seems nice and willing to share their knowledge. Myself, I drive a 95 civic dx with a JDM B18C, coilovers and a skunk 2 intake manifold. Im looking to upgrade the internals before adding more power and im considering a vtec controller, but ive been told theyre not worth the money.....but the way i see it, it could be good for fuel mileage on the highway, dial it up so im not revving 5 grand sittin in vtec for 5 hours at a time, set the vtec at 8 and save some dough, and at the drags i could take it down to 3 grand or so, what do you guys think????
you think it's fun now?? just wait till you see people get into arguments with Mods(moderators) and stuff. I hope you brought your flame suit.
nice!! newest victim last night was a new style lude type sh, burned him all the way.
lol, good luck on the project man. welcome
i think you are borgarting this non-technical post.
I also think that lowering your vtec point to 3k is the stupidest thing ever.
okay mr pissedoffsol, thats why im askin...........because im not very informed on the use of these things. any help? and thanks liquidmeth
yeah, make a new thread in general tech or ecu/elctronics or something.
and basically, there is no SET number. you have to dyno YOUR car to see where you make the most power
Blanco...welcome to Hondaswap! B) where are u from? just wondering because there are some guys in a local mall that sell vinyl stickers out here. im in socal.
