I was thinking about picking up an88 to 90 civic 4door to do a mild build

port and pollish
milled head
decked block
cam stage 2
either a 2.25" or 2.50 full exhaust system
lightened pulleys
8lb flywheel
stage 1 clutch
phantom grip lsd block
head gasket to raise compression

what do you guys think is it worth it and what type of quality power do you think I will receive?

I just want a fun car my turbo 93 hatch is my autoX car I want something that will be fun in the canyons

I'm not going to guess at how much horsepower you will make but you can certainly make more power for your dollar if you focus more (turbo??). Also you didn't include 'a good tune' in there. Without that you're wasting a lot of money on those parts.

You can add a full exhaust to a stock ecu but you're not going to see anywhere near the improvement to it. When you're at full throttle the ECU doesn't adjust your fuel map it just goes with what it has pre-programmed... Which was tuned by honda for your stock stuff.

And 88-91 4 doors are sweet!
