Default 07 Honda Civic EX w/navigation?

Ok I bought my honda civic, but now I need to up the Horses on it. I don't need much but I be satified with 10 to 20 more hp. Gas milage is great but I know i may have to give in a couple to get some power.

Hmm if you want to up your horsepower a little, get an inter cooler, but if you want it to be up like say 80-100 etc, get a turbo or supercharger. Inter coolers make your engine last longer, and gives you a few extra horses.

I have NO idea what the guy above me is talking about. You generally buy an intercooler to assist with the excess heat caused by forced induction i.e supercharger or turbocharger. Not for a naturally aspirated 1.8L engine pumping out a whopping 140hp. If you want a few extra ponies, start off with an cold air intake system, and an exhaust. That should achieve what you want. Best of luck.

Get an SI. J/K. The first step which almost everyone takes is the Cold Air Intake. Claims to add 5-10 horses and actually improves gas mileage when your not trying to race. Headers and exhaust could add 15-30hp depending on the type you go with. Also look into a performance chip to hook up to your computer. Hope this helps
