Default What else can i do to improve Hp in a 99 honda civic lx.?

I already swapped for a b16a. I have an A&N short RAM intake but thats really it. I know i need to swap the entire exhaust and suspension. I do plan on turbo down the line.What else should i do?

Have you thought about internals? Maybe you can add cam gears, cam shafts, crank shafts etc...... There are about 10 different B16 motors & the B16A is cool. But the B16B TypeR is better. That one is the best one & it gives you 185HP. But with heavy modifications, you are looking at well over 200HP.

The basic mods are intake(cold air intakes are better then short ram) header, and exhaust. Next would be to get a good suspension set up. You should look into the koni yellows/ground cotrol. Stay away from ebay parts like "fast racer" or "godspeed"

cold air intake, cat back exhaust, header, skunk2 (or something) intake manifold, bigger throttle body, port and polish intake and exhaust ports, Camshafts, cam gears to fine tune timing, pistons (low compression if you plan on runnning a turbo or super charger, high compression for a N/A engine) the crank shafts are suppost to be pretty strong on these engine (some say good up to 400hp...) then balance and blueprint, get an ECU that can be programed (hondata, chrome, etc) take car to dyno shop and have them tune it. obviously there are gonna be stuff you should do that isnt mentioned here (ARP head studs, main bolts, con rod bolts, clutch, lightened flywheel, yada yada yada...) your gonna have to do a fair amount of research on this.

A nitrous oxide system, turbocharger or supercharger are the only things that are worth the cost. All of your planning should reflect this goal. Example- it is a good idea to upgrade the internals if you expect to maintain over 200 Hp for the life of the motor.
