I dunno man. For that price I think you can do better than that. Not dissing that kit though. I'm sure you could piece together an hmt kit that would be just as effective as that one. But that's just my $.02 I'm still reading a lot about boost.

But then again, that kit includes an intake manifold but I'm not sure how neccesary that is. Like I said, an hmt kit will probably be cheaper but just as effective.

Meh, piggybacks aren't all that great. Tuning you ecu will be more beneficial.

And shouldn't this be in FI??????? Moved possibly???

You'll be able to keep your mpg's (if that's what you're talking about) tuning does wonders. There are some 350whp civics here that still get 32mpg's.

I'd try to stay away from that 250hp goal on stock internals. Especially if that's your daily. I would look at piecing a kit together if all you're wanting is 200hp. It'll be cheaper for you.

Well shit. You should be fine for 250. Have fun with your build. Go lurk around in the FI section for build ideas and tips. Reading can be fun.

Then put the built block in the car and have some fun you will want more power and leave that junk ass piggy back alone. A properly tuned ECU will give you great gas milage and proper fuel and timing adjustments. Hell I get about 29mpg and my tuner could do some more leaning out of my map and my friend he put down 292 he gets about 37mpg.
