    does anyone know any way to get more horsepower with out doing internal work. I already have cold air intake, exahaust, and msd wires. I did not expect alot from those but anything you all could suggest would be greatly appreciated.

    Header, cam, tuning tuning tuning!

    Go turbo if you can afford it and know someone who can tune it.

    or just sell all that crap and turbocharge it.

    Take your time and shop online for best prices on turbo parts.
    I was able to make a homemade turbo for under $1200 bux, and that includes walbro fuel pump and 450 injectors.

    You will have to tune it though. The engine is going to run like shit with the 450's

    so yeah,
    Turbo, 7 to 10psi on stock internals with a good tune.

    Good luck.

    ITB's! IIRC, Honda-tuning magazine got like 130-140whp with ITBs and 4-1 header and tuned with a VAFC or PowerFC(i forgot which...mightve even been Hondata)

    All Motor FTW!! You still need cams, headers, maybe a chipped ecu or AEM EMS. Then tune your car and get a grounding kit as an option for a tiny bit more lol.

    You can go quite a bit higher than 130-140whp without resorting to ITBs and the tuning that goes with them.
