    Bigger engine ? If you were from Fall River where I am from it is easy to get a k22 for very very cheap money ! alot of people around here sell "hooked up" hondas that need some work for a very reasonable price with great engines and you just rip out the engine or fix uup the body and whatever else needs fixing.

    I just got my self a B16 engine for $100 lol..But yea you could drop a turbo in your car look around online for a cheap turbo..Ebay maybe ? sometimes you get full turbo kits for like $600 if you look long and hard enough..Honda Civic Parts Specialists has alot of parts real cheap..
    MSD igniton wires and Denso spark plugs-$120.00. Or Bosch Super 4 SparkPlugs..I have those and they work GREAT(recommended)
    Clutch Kit-$390.00.
    Cam Gears-$108.00.
    Racing headers-$400.00.
    High performance Radiators-$340.00.
    Cold Air Intake-$100.00-$260.00
    thats just some stuff I think you could use to make your car ALOT faster.but some people on honda swap might think there are better things

    well, to the original poster.. let me give you some advise and DO NOT ... i repeat DO NOT listen to this guy..

    what i suggest you to do is get your basic bolt-ons .. i/h/e cam of your choice and look into getting it chipped and tuned.. but better suspension, sway/strut bars and tires will make it faster in the turns.. so, its up to you where you want to put your money..



    :eek: :eek:

    well, $2k isnt gonna get him a k20 or even a k22 :eek: :ph34r:.. so that basically out of the question.. if he doesnt want to do a HMT then he isnt gonna really make much power regardless.... so thats why i suggest he throws it into suspension and then save for a swap

    lol good cuz i was gonna be done arguing with you to cuz I dont see no need to argue over spark plugs..and for some reason where I live there is a guy who owns a store called Auto Boutique and he charges $180 to swap a engine and $200 if he has to buy parts..and he said no matter what engine..if its for a truck or not..I think that is pretty fukin good ! $1200 for the K20 and $200 to sawp it is a damn good price !


    lmao wtf is that ? never heard that before

    now its my time what ever you do make sure you do not listen to Ant0n3 hes is a retard the only thing you can do for your car for that money is what eg6sir has already told you sure, you mightbe able to get a k20a3 out of a si for 1200 bucks but thats just the motor no tranny no ecu no nothing. and where ever hes getting these super deals if they realy are that cheap like lets say a b16 for 100 bucks its stolen. your not gona get any better power with what this nut case said other than the motor swap witch will cost you alot more than 2 grand. and yes your a noob mr k22.

    you know the base RSX comes with a k20, same as the 02-05 Civic SI, but its blows.. and it sounds like you're getting your info from your buddy, so how did you mistype it.... you're owning yourself as you type.. hahah

    ok, its possible the the labor to swap the motor could be $200, if a friend is doing it.. and the mounts alone are $600.. not to mention you need custom axles and various other parts that are not cheap..

    the reason where on your case is your giving out false info..and to you bigboarder127 if you want good correct info make sure to listen to members that have a high post count and good rep numbers....but you was owning yourself
