    What would be the easiest and cheapest way to get power out of my friends 90 Accord EX with a five speed. He has ram air intake and a after cat exhaust with a 5zigen muffler.

    It's a pretty worthless engine in there. He could drop $1000 to $1500 on a new valvetrain and some higher compression pistons, or go the right way and turbo the engine or swap it for an H22.

    Maybe NOS until you blow the engine. After he blows the engine, his car is perfect for the H22 swap. Since it is already a manual, he'd be set.
    He could throw $500 at that engine, and still not get much. Or, he could spend $750-1250 and have one hell of a car.

    Either way, depends on your goals.
