Default 91 acura integra 1.8 modifications?

Hey all I’m looking for some ideas. I plan on doing some mods to my 91 integra such as cold air box performance chip and such. What I want is to hear from others that have done this already and things you found that you liked or didn't like, things that worked great or didn’t work. I really don’t want to re invent the wheel and try a bunch of stuff that isn’t gonna get me results so any idea and opinions are welcome.

If you want performance, bolt-ons are not the way to go. The most you will ever get out of parts like this, no matter what anyone tries to tell you is about 25 HP. and most of that is in the top end of your RPM range. If you really want performance you will have to invest in parts for the internals of your car. Your car is a 91 correct. well first thing I would do is completly rebuild this motor with all new gaskets, seals, bearings, and upgraded internals, or buy a newer low mileage engine and build the internals of it. Then either get a turbo or supercharger. remember this saying SPEED COSTS MONEY, HOW FAST DO YOU WANT TO GO. this is abot the only way to get TRUE performance.

I agree with honda boy there. Your engine has too high of a compression ratio to like forced induction as it sits. If you don't rebuild the engine as listed above, your options are:Go bolt ons only, and go slow.Go forced induction, keep the boost low, and go slow.Go forced induction, crank up the boost, and go fast. Once.If you're gonna do it, do it right. Forged internals.

just invest on a b16a head and do a frankenstein lsvtec, massive hp and keep stock airbox, and no computer chipping, just swap it out with a pr3 ecu. for about $900 complete
