Look into getting your head ported and polished...I have seen some really nice ported and polished heads on blueprintracing.com....change intake, bigger exhaust, bigger injectors, cams.....and since your doing all that it wouldn't be a bad idea to just rebuild your motor anyway....it might be a little expensive but it might get you there

You could probally do that with just a tune lol
Everything I have read is what I suggested....I was talking whp

I read that from Honda/Acura Performance by Mike Kojima....really good book if you like to read much I have found it very helpful

Thank you....but I did fail to mention a tune which would make all those mods really help

Even ITR cams wouldn't be a bad upgrade.....I would just do a lot of research on the different cams then decided which would be best for you

I thought Mike Kojima was more familiar with Nissans.

There's plenty of different manufactors that makes ITB besides Toda; Hayward Performance/Jenvey, TWM, Kinsler, J's Racing, even OBX has a setup. Also, if you're looking for more power, ITBs aren't always the best route to go either.

A K20 swap would get you around 200whp. :)

Otherwise; ITR pistons(or even CTR pistons), cai/h/e, intake manifold, cams(ITR or something more milder), and tuning should get you close to 200hp. My cousin is actually around 185-190whp with a LS/VTEC(GSR head), 82mm Wiseco 11.5:1 pistons, RMF header, Apexi N1 exhaust, AEBS intake manifold, AEM CAI, and tuning by RLZ.

It says on the last page of the book he is familiar with both Nissans and Hondas.

Do you know what size injectors? and how big his exhausts is? I am thinking one day LS/VTEC would be what I want and thats close to the amount of power I want
