The SF Kit is good, but also look in to the Dezod kit. they are a great company and have recently built their kit this past year and is supposed to be better than SF. here's the link: http://dezodmotorsports.com/cat_turbo_kits.cfm

Alright thinks I will

Also is it possible to creat around 200whp with a turbo D17? without building the engine its self

Have know something about exhaust system?

I drive a 01 civic LX (D17A1 non-VTEC) and alredy intalled a custom exhaust system:

-JDM Style Header 4-1 (end under the oil pan)
-Freeflow design resonator (no cat converter)
-2in cat back exhaust
-Dynoflow (or Flowmaster) pipe (freeflow design)

The engine have:
-Light weight underdrive pulley
-short ram intake
-AEM adjustable cam gear (advice on it?)

The car isn't accelerating faster up to 4,500 RPM. At that RPM it feels having better acceleration.

I think removing the catalityc the engine is loosing its back pressure of the exhaust system...

Do you know anything about this?

Yes having that free flowing of an exhaust system on the DX is making you lose way too much back pressure. That along with the DX gearing (although 1st gear is better geared than the EX, but fiinal drive is worse) is gonna mean major loss of power on the bottom end.

p.s. I've experimented with about 4 or 5 different exhaust setups on the 01 civic...

these motors dont really make that much power until around 4k rpm so that along with less backpressure is gonna feel like a sucky bottom end power. go to AEM's website and look at the dyno graphs they have for the 01+ DX (you'll be impressed with the V2).
