No Honda is good to "soup up". Your not going to get much out of it except a large whole in your wallet.

typically most people use the car as a base car, they change the motor, your del sol probably has a 1.6 at 90 hp, you might be able to squeaze a 2.2 motor in. if you run hot cams high flow fuel rails and pump, headers, new bigger bore throttle bady and intake....and that is just scratching the surface you might make 160+ hp

it will not be able to be transformed into a power house, but because it is a very light weight car, if you could get it to 220 hp then it will fly, i think it only has a curb wieght of 2400 lbs. so if you could turbo it and add intake/exhaust then you could get it to 220hp and have yourself a low 14 sec 1/4 mile car.

With enough money you can get as much hp as you want. I have seen Del Sols outrun Corvettes, so anything is possible if you have enough cash. Granted, this is going to at least involve a engine swap, turbo kit, and reinforced internals to make those kinds of numbers, but with an engine swap and turbo running about 6-8 psi, you should be able to squeeze out 250 hp pretty easily with a few other mods such as full exhaust, intake, lightweight pulley, etc. With the power to weight ratio that would give you, you would have an extremely fast car.

the best way to go would be dropping in a type "r" motor off of an integra or get a spoon engine (which is usually the best) n you can add all kinds of different mods n i think the most u can get a honda motor up to is 450-560 hp if im not mistaken.....hope this helped

It's all about money. I own two del sols ones my every day driver with a d16z6 W/cam and bolt on's pushing 170 hp and it is cheap, quick and reliable. My other del sol is a work in process and im trying to get a K-series in it (wich is the cream of the crop honda engine) I've seen honda's with up to 750 hp on the strip but only 400 hp on the street.
