    im not sure about that one, the best bang for the buck would be spray or boost

    ive seen some nasty supercharged ones, id go down that path since they seem to be the most popular ones, if you dont wanna spend that kind of money id just go with spray like suggested

    6 manual trans swap from acura cl-s would help a ton. The Honda auto trannies are geared for economy. Take the resistor out, its just making you run rich. Honda did a good job tuning the car, and yours is close to stock. Changing the vtec crossover point won't help you either.

    That's not bad for that engine and chassis. It's nothing to brag about, but respectable nonetheless...

    Running rich is never a good thing. Resistors are just hack mods. A real tune, even just a piggyback tune, would result in those same power gains without having to run rich. As for the trans, the year doesn't really matter. It just needs to be capable of bolting up the a J-series engine...

    just go for boosting it...jackson racing makes a decent honda supercharger, and nectics for the turbo.......even with 8psi your going to haul ass and wont have to worry too much about your engine, as long as you dont beat on it everysingle time you drive...those engine are beasts for the get go. stay with that engine.....go for pistons, spray, camshafts, intake manifold, bigger throttle body stuff like that also

    JR doesn't make a kit for the 6 cylinders. I believe comptech was the only company, and they are out of business now.

    You are correct, sir! :thumbsup:

    Yeah, you might be able to find a used Comptech blower somewhere, but don't hold your breath...
