check this out: your shoes I would leave the motor stock, run an inlinepro manifold, precision SC61, hondata, a PTE intercooler, and a walbro 255 pump. I have a friend who made 333 WHP on 91 octane, stock B16 at 11 psi from an SC61. You don't need any other crap.

If want to tear your motor down and rebuild the top end go ahead I use a turbo,I found they are more fuel efficient than the superchargers in every way,Less work then rebuilding.Bigger intakes guzzle gas and create vacuum leaks.The Turbo's are more reliable,less to go wrong

400+ wheel hp? you could leave the internals alone, and it would be really fast, until you bend a rod and trash your'll need to blow 15+ psi to make it happen, and for that you'll need rods and pistons, something in the zone of 8.5-1 compression so the turbo can fill the cylinder with the massive amount of mix you need for that power. the stock duration for cams should be fine, but get something with just a little more lift to maximize your power. a quality turbo kit should come with fuel management and software, so you'll have that covered. i'm sure you already know you'll need a badass clutch and cv shafts. better brakes couldn't hurt, either.

Only if you race it. The extreme profile of performance cams will ruin your power delivery in normal street driving. They only work well in a narrow RPM window.

You get 400 WHP out of a 93 Civic and the engine will last about 10 seconds before it self destructs.

So you want 400 to the wheels !? Well first off you need to rebuild the bottom end to take that power. New pistons, rods, either sleeve the block or get a block guard. Many have their own opinions to sleeving or just getting a block guard. But just for extra insurance sleeving the block would be the best bet but not the best when it comes to the wallet. Then you can keep the head stock but thats gonna cause you to not make much power.But by you saying you wanted performance cams you gonna have to upgrade the whole valvetrain and a port and polish would be good too. If you keep the stock valvetrain with performance cams your risking piston contact because the stock valvetrain may not be strong enough to snap them valves back. So if you do get cams upgrade the valve train. Make sure you get turbo application cams also. Now you need to upgrade your fuel system. A fuel pump and bigger injectors should be good. No need to get a aftermarket fuel rail unless you want too. Then with 400 to the wheels you need a better suspension to get that to the wheels. Also GOOD tires and maybe a traction bar. LSD would help GREATLY to try and get not to much wheel spin. A stage 2 or 3 clutch is gonna to be needed because the stock on is out of the question. And aftermarket flywheel. BIGGER brakes also. Stock ones not gonna cut it period. Now this is gonna run you a good bit to do it right and not have to pay for it in the long run. By you asking that kind of question you don't need a car with 400 to the wheels.
