    your options are only limited by your budget and imagination

    you can literally do ANYTHING you can think of to that car... and chances are someone else already has

    so how much do you want to spend and what do you want out of it

    I'd say the first thing you need to do for some mild performance is unblown the engine. I/H/E, suspension, brakes, some dope air freshener, and a couple stickers should do the trick.

    You still haven't answered E's questions. Your options are literally endless, and limited by your budget, and imagination.

    What are looking to get out of the car? Daily driver? Trailer Queen? Race car? Just all around badass ride?

    What are you a retard? What's with your lack of communication skills? Even if you type slowly there is no reason to not use periods and commas. They make stuff far easier to read and you come across as a more intelligent and capable individual if you can form proper sentences.

    if that "dohc 1.8 integra head" is a vtec head then take your b16 intake manifold and put it on that head then go read the "how to build a reliable ls/vtec" and have fun. there you go. spoon fed.
