    i hate to break it to you, but altezzas look like a heaping pile of dog shit.

    anyway, toss those, and you got a decent start :spin:

    You should forgo the header and start thinking turbo unless you are going to swap that sohc d16. That is, if you are REALLY into performance and not carbon fiber stuff and altezzas... Oh.... wait a minute.... Never Mind. :D

    just do a swap now instead of trying to build up the SOHC, itll be cheaper in the long run.

    nice! i like it :thumbsup: let me guess...enkei RS05's? :) now all you need is a header, cam gear and a skunk2 stage I cam and your car will be ill! :) ...and some sideskirts would look nice too. and tinted windows.

    dont worry about swaps and turbo unless you really NEEED serious traction-robbing power. with the mods i mentioned, you will have real good acceleration and responsiveness for the street.

    If you would kindly refer to the post before my horific "..." post, you will see that he managed to use "..." 12 times in one paragraph. That seems a little excesive to me. Instead of being a jackass and starting an argument, *ahem* I chose the subtelty of just posting "...". So there. ;)

    I don't think this guy realizes something...

    For less than the cost of a header, Cam gear, timing belt swap, water pump, and install, you can get an OBD2 LS engine swap, and have GOBS more torque and 10-15 more horsepower than the D16.

    Just a reminder.

    And if you're still not convinced, sell the carbon hood, the Altezza tails, and trade the 17 for some Rota's plus cash, and you could get a B16a, or MAYBE a GSR swap.
