Default How can I soup up my 1986 Honda Civic Si, without doing an engine swap, or using Nitrous?

All serious answers will be greatly appreciated, those just looking to gain a couple of points with silly answers all suck, and need to get a life.Thumbs down!All serious answers will be greatly appreciated, those just looking to gain a couple of points with silly answers all suck, and need to get a life.Thumbs down!All serious answers will be greatly appreciated, those just looking to gain a couple of points with silly answers all suck, and need to get a life.Thumbs down!

put a giant 3 foot tall spoiler on it and get the muffler extension that makes it sound like its a jumbo jet taking off. Also get a horn that plays the mexican hat dance... that adds atleast 120hp

Any of these mods will put extra strain on the engine and drive train. The car is over 20 years old and may not be worth the investment.

(Insert silly answer to gain points here!!!)Well, there's supercharging, turbocharging, bolt-ons(CAI, exhaust), weight reduction, and toying around with the engine(such as higher compression ratio, and increasing engine displacement.)Actually, engine swaps aren't that damn hard, but wiring isn't a walk in the park.Now give me my points =]

Well you could put slick tires on your civic. You could also make it look hot by putting lambo doors, or carbon fiber hood, and fenders, and some nice rims, i think some spiders will do it. You could also put header and pistons or you could do turbo.
