    I have a 91 accord LX 2.2L stock, non v-tec. My last car was a 94 z-28 with a 5.7L LT1. I like my honda but to me its like driving a moped. Im not real familiar with the whole tuner/import world and whats available to do with my car or good web sites for my car. I know basic exhuast,headers, cool air intake and stuff to give a lil extra HP. but what else are some good things to do. My engine is real solid and runs good, but lacks in the power. looking for suggestions. thanks

    i was just on a lnk looking at some boost kits, kinda pricy. I was possibly looking at maybe an engine swap. not sure though. looking at maybe trying get a v-tec. or I might just leave it stock and rebiuld my camaro. if anything a will most def do a cool air intake, saw an AEM for about 200. then some exhuast and headers. I just dont want it to sound like a beefed up wead eater.

    Turbo is the best way to avoid the "beefed up weed eater" sound.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the F series could use the DSM turbo manifold. Find a DSM setup for a cheap upgrade :shrug:

    Yup, it can. You just have to drill a few more holes in the manifold flange to bolt it up.

    why not look into an H22 swap, the trans currently in your car will mate up to it so all you need is the long block and matching ECU.
