    Ok heres the deal , Im gettin a insurance settlement check in the next or so and here is some parts i picked out and wanted ure opinions , Ok first the mods i already have.

    Aem cai
    chickara tq step header
    Thermal R&D piping , to a Apexi Muffler
    STR fuel rail
    MSD igntion and coil
    ACT clutch
    SS

    Mods im buying

    Skunk2 stage 2 cams
    Port Flow springs and reatainers
    AEBS intake manifold
    PnP head
    Spoon Sports ECU
    US Spec Teg Type-R pistons with o rings

    Thats basically a type-r head with mroe aggressive cams and spoon sports ecu. With the mods i already have and the mods im adding i was thinking that would put some where in the 180-190 whp, what do you guys think a set up like that will throw to the ground.

    you may want to take the money for the spoon ecu and just get your car professionally tuned so its custom for your setup

    I'm with you on this one bro, take the money and rock Uberdata or Hondata
    the Spoon Ecu is probably fake.

    You may touch 180, but I don't see you getting much further. A little more displacement would help a lot. And yea, ditch the Spoon ECU idea, get something you can tune to your individual motor.

    Im gonna ditch the spoon ecu. However i dont see how i cant get 180 with that setup .ive got a friend makin 168 with skunk2"s itr manifold i/h/e and cam gears. i thought the pnp was good for atleast 20. Anyway im gettin a zex kit instead of the spoon ecu

    i dont see anything over 180 to the wheels. i give you 180 tops because ofthe cams... they are decent sized. a port and polish isn't going to give you huge gains. basically you are upping the compression a hair, and you have bolt ons. the fuel rail and ignition stuff are getting you precisely nothing.

    you should just buy an LS block and put some CTR pistons in that. I added an LS block to my b16 and got an instant 30 ft lbs of torque and like 20 whp. and that was for around 700 bucks.. all OEM honda internals...

    check out my web page and read about my old del sol.. it may give you some ideas.
