I think you need to know more about your vehicle. Read automobile amnual. Try to solve your motorvehicl problem by yourself.Go to the following site. Click on the e- book section and then find automobile manual. Apart fro this you can go to the magazine section as well for finding different magazines related to automobile.After that refer this site to others from your word of mouth . So that your others can also be benefitted from this website.Have A Nice DayBye

Well the car's already breathing well going by what you said. Try reducing the weight a little bit, take out spare tire and all that junk, rip out the back seats, remove carpet, stuff like that, it's free so do that first. If that doesn't help enough, look into a tuning system, like hondata. It will lower the vtec engagement point so you'll be kicking out more HP on the lower side of the RPM band.

use racing gas(you can make it your self)... lol, get the head port and polished, upgrade intake manifold. if you know how to advance the timing you can change it slightly to make a bit more power, but if you dont, dont try or you will mess it up, also for the long consider doing an N/A rebuild or a Fi build =]

Knowledge is power, and inexperience will have you pissing away your money on all sorts of nonsense for your mighty Acura.Visit VP Racing Fuels website and read up on what I use in my stock Honda Civic when we go to the track. Use "motorsport 109" in your Acura as it is an oxygenated fuel. You can now advance your timing by about 5-9 degrees to take full advantage of this rapid burning fuel. It has a 109 rating for octane so you won't blow holes through your pistons.This is by far the cheapest way to get a bit more from your Acura for less than $150. Your climb rate will increase as well, or should I say get ready to shift sooner as the trip to 6500 rpms will take less time.I'm sure many people will suggest this as well due to the obvious gains....then again maybe not. Funny how that is, anyways.When you get a chance read up on fuels that have a few extra Oxy atoms attached and worry less about Octane. Any fool can bolt this and that onto a car but few people out there know the facts about building proper reliable power from their engines. Read like I did when I was younger as few things regarding power increases from engines has changed in 50 years other than perhaps the brands we choose to race with.Good luck against the truck and have a fire extinguisher handy in case.

All u basically have to do is tune your ECU to the fullest and got some racing fuel to get the extra kick in your car...that will help you win.

hondata intake manifold gasket, clean your air filter (if its been on there a while you'd be suprised how much of a difference this can make), since you said full exhaust Im assuming you have a high flow cat but if not buy a carsound cat, if its been a while since you've done a tune up do one ie plugs, wires, cap, rotor, switch to synthetic fluids (this includes manual transmission fluid get royal purple synchromesh), if all you do is burn tire out of the hole by some sticky tires this will probably help the most, underdrive lighweight aluminum pulley set (don't buy really cheap ones because they are not balanced well) Thats about all you can do without having to have your car tuned. IF you wanna take it farther buy a set of cams then get your car tuned. Or just go forced induction.

Hopefully your not doing this on the street?In any case the b18a in your teg makes like what, 180? You have done all the bolt ons you can. Your going to have to go turbo or supercharged. Or you can go all out and have the engine built to race specs...
