    I just finished my ZC mini me and I was wondering what else i can do to get more out of it. Heres a short list of stuff that I have so far:
    cold air intake
    D.C. header
    AEM cam gear
    Firdanza alum flywheel
    Exedy stage 2 clutch
    2" 1/2 dyno max exhaust
    B&M command flow

    I also ordered under drive pullys but there on back order I there anything else?

    i'd ditch the pulley if I were you...

    This question really just leads to more questions... What are your goals? Is this for auto cross? if so, are you looking to stay n/a? or bump up a class and go f/i?

    You see where i'm going?...

    You know its a dyno proven fact that for every 10 lbs you take off the crank its actually 2.7 horsepower? That underdrive pulley with a crank pulley, and ditching the a/c system, on top of the lightweight flywheel will add a good 5 horses. Which isn't bad considering that is from like $80 in parts for the pulleys. Not to mention the list of mods he has he will have a pretty quick car.

    Also on a side note if you are on a budget there are some great write-ups for porting your own heads. You could easily gain a bit more power with something that might not cost you anything but a couple hours.

    I was looking at cams last night, is the Crower stage 1or 2 a good cam or is there any other companies that make sohc cams? I've seen Web cams and Crower I can't find that many. Also I don't want something to crazy this is my D.D. witch Hondata is the one I would want?

    Gude Gude - Catalog Honda Civic and ZEX Zex.com - Nitrous Performance also make SOHC Vtec cams. The ZEX link, for some reason, links you to their homepage. Just use the search in the left column of their home page. Search for 'camshafts' and they'll pop up...

    I'd also pass on the Hondata also and go with something less cost efficient like Crome.

    If you did want Hondata though, the S300 is what you would need/get.
