thanks! no major plans. I really enjoy it as a daily so any mods in the future are going to be mild and simple improvements and maintance. right now i'm gathering the parts to do a MPFI conversion. already have a Z6 intake manifold. the part i'm looking for right now is a stock D16A6 cam in good shape... just to help with the power after the MPFI conversion. this poor thing is really underpowered, I can barely run the A/C on the highway!

Yeah with I/H/E you get minimal gains, deff look into the cap, rotor, plugs wires too. Doing maintenance helps more then anything else on these eco boxes.

oh yeah, no doubt. I did oem NGK plugs, wires and cap and rotor when I bought it with an oil change, air filter, and fuel filter. it didn't feel any stronger but it did run a TON smoother and I picked up 5mpg. I now average mid 30's in town and 42 on the highway (with the AC off).

the biggest improvement I did was toss the stock 4-speed out and swap in an Si 5-speed, that really helped.

Next thing to look at is all the bushings in the car, replacing them will make a noticable difference in handling and how it drives all together at higher speeds.

man i'd love to, but that shit adds up quick! lol. i guess i could do it one bit at a time. my rear control arms are old but still solid, but the big bushing in my trailing arm is almost completely shot.

Rockauto.com bro! They can get most of the bushings in OE style.

Or you can get a ES bushing master kit and be sure to get alot of extra grease (they don't give you near enough).

I guess since this is my intro thread, I could tell you more about me.

Born and raised in the Dallas, TX area. came out to Lubbock to go to Tech for mechanical engineering, had to drop out because it got very exspensive very quick. I've worked on cars and bikes my whole life so I stuck with that for work. I've been a mechanic, a parts guy, a machinist, etc. I now work parts and technical assistance here at Scoggin Dickey (large wholesale performance parts warehouse for domestics, mostly Chevys).

I've owned a bunch of cars over the years. imports and domestics, trucks and muscle cars, crotch rockets and Harleys. this red hatch is my third Honda, I had two CRXs previously, a 1st gen and a 2nd gen. but other than my current little Honda and 04 Silverado work truck, i'm currently working on this: Part 1, Part 2

no quicker way to kill the vibe in your own intro thread on a Honda board than to talk about domestics.

Dig the bow tie love. Nice dragster. You should just post the pics here next time. More of a response that way.

We are pic whores at DSO, we admit it freely in fact.
