The best/safest way to get a little more power out of your set up would simply be proper tuning. And if thats not enough you can throw some nitrous at it or a turbo...

tuning isn't really that cheap unless you find an independent person to do a street tune, but it is the easiest for someone to get done.

Cheapest would be lightening your car. That'll help with MPG and make your car just a tad faster.

well, cold air intake + k/n filter works fuckin good, plus advance the cam just a C hair, and I'd open the exhaust to 2.5 inch, none of which will help your fuel milage, but it will certainly give the car a bit of a growl!

If you have a wideband, burner or emulator, and your ECU is socketed, OR you have a VAFC, then yea you can change your a/f.

Dude your in Atlantic Beach? There's someone in Jacksonville that does street tuning. Last time he quoted me like $80+gas to do a A/F street tune. Let me see if I can find his name.

edit: ok his name is "projekteg" on carolinahondas.com... I guess you can email him from there to see how much he charges or if he's still tuning.

Honda did alot of resurch on the engines, they squeezed as much hp as they could out of the engine. You really can't freeze up hp like you can in chevy engines. you can put slightly higher compression pistons in your block. you can find cheep OEM pistons on this site. see what fits.

loose weight, both you and your car, fatty
R O F L................hahahah

Cheapeast way to gain "More" power would be Nitrous.......A better way to Gain consistant power would be Turbo.....And if you are looking for the N/a Route....Get a Crower Stage 2 cam...and a ECU to handle it...find a tune....Either way....Getting a P28/Chip/Burn job would be the right step combo for all 3 of these.....
