    ok heres the deal. I'm building up my GIRLFRIENDS D16Y8 and I need to know what i should do next!

    This is what I've done so far.

    Short Ram Intake
    Header
    BBK 62mm Throttle Body
    Venom Fuel Rail
    Venom Injectors, 10 % over ones.
    Fuel pressure reg, and gauge. What sould my fuel pressure be set at, I have it at 50
    no resonator, OBX muffler, stock pipe.

    This is some of what I was thinkin'

    2 1/2 in piping from cat back
    Venom 400 or Apexi V-AFC Venom 400 is easier right?
    Port and polished head, someone is selling them on EBAY
    Venom intake manifold
    High flow cat

    Which of these would you do next and why?

    No engine swap and the Port and Polished head is kinda pushin it at the kinda work I really feel like doing. She drives this Daily.

    If your going to keep that crap motor then just make it sound and look nice, NOT SPANICH.. Take off that crap OBX tip and get greddy EVO, then get a ground control suspension ( car needs to be lowerd looks like crap in pic). also would be nice with a carbon fiber hood. If you want to really make the car worth driving then forget all of that and do the LS turbo swap.... or a GSR if you dont have the money for the turbo.

    mad propz on that clean looking civic! but doesnt that tree get in the way when you're shifting? j/k :)

    you've already got alot invested in the current engine, so i would upgrade the exhaust piping first (and get a quality muffler instead of that OBX), then bolt on a cam gear if u like and then get a V-afc to get everything tuned. IMO, high-flow cats dont do much. they add only 1-2whp at the most. i'd just go with larger cat-back pipes and a good performance muffler.

    Thank you.

    Every one that said motor swap! it's not going to happen so get over it.

    And I have never had anything but compliments on the car.

    I can put all the stock parts back on if she sells it!

    I'm totally feelin you on that on man! :D

    Well, since she doesn't care about being fast, then don't worry about that part. Just lower, maybe bigger wheels, body kit, take off the eyebrow things, CF hood, Whats up with the grill?

    Just what I wanted to know! Dumb

    I asked what step should be next towards getting a little more power out of the motor and you make a list of about $4000 dollars worth of body mods!!!


    I'll stick to Protegeclub.com, it is a much better site.
    And hell they can help me more w/ the civic than most of you!

    I have a 03' Protege 5
