    What motor does it have right now? The most popular swaps for the eg is a B-serier, thats because the integras and eg's have/had almost identical engine bays, so its an easy swap. Do you have a budget? How much HP are you looking for?

    If you want 300 horse for a grand, it wont happen. If you just want 300 horse for cheap, LS swap and boost.

    You can do a lot with single cams, but itll be easier to get 300 horse out of an LS swap. Either way, there is tons of info, so if you read up on it you cant go wrong.

    Yes Mr. Brutal, sir. I know what a "crate motor" is. It is a motor that came out of a crate. May I have my cookie now? :D

    Not only that, TUNE, TUNE, TUNE! If I may suggest, I would find a reputable shop around you that tunes as well and go to them with your needs. It is very simple that way. You go there, let them know what you want, they give you figure X on how much it is going to cost, they do all of the work and thinking for you then VOILA! Your car goes vrrrooommm fast and safely. Though if it were me, I would upgrade my suspension a bit.

    Best of luck to you. :thumbsup:
