    I have a 98 Civic LX auto that I added a header, kat back exhaust, and a racing kat-eliminator pipe. Other than the cold air intake ( which is on it's way ) What can I do to make this
    car a bit quicker? I can definately notice a difference with the work I've already done, but what else can I do? Is it worth it to add a turbo kit for 3 grand? Or will that just kill my little engine? Thanks for any advice or experience for this slow car trin' to be a little bit fast.

    I have the same car you do...well actually my wife done..and she bitches about the lack of power all the time.. What i have come to decide for it is that im going to do a minime to it and throw on a turbo kit. That way it will still reliable but it will give it some balls at the same time..
