idk my friend i mean i have seen hondas civics having around 500hp going like crazy around here but 290 ?? its kinda low but i mean its ok to be having fun around but if you want more action , feel the vtec power , add some extra horse power to it more torque bro , why don't u buy one of those HKS turbos theyre good and they worked good in my civic , my civic is a 2000 si civic and i just bought it 3 months ago and i bought that turbo , i bought some new stuff and now i have 325 hp in it lol without the nitrous oxide , with the nitrous , goes around 390hp or more, but im planing on doing a project to my civic its fun

That kind of power will definitely make the car "interesting" to drive, just make sure you put some decent quality meaty tires for that power in such a light chassis. I've ridden passenger in a K20 built EG(its somewhere around 240fwhp), that was one heck of experience. Ear tearing sweaty palms spine tingling fear, it was fantastic!
