I know you can get 20+ HP out of a good, properly installed intake. Emphasis on PROPERLY INSTALLED. If you don't make a good connection or it's bent at a bad angle you might only get 5-10HP. Sorry, no massive HP boosts there...As far as exhausts go, also not a big boost. You might be lucky and get another 5-15HP. However, it's affective because you get HP increase through all RPM, more increase at higher RPM's. This site may help, as I don't know very much about exhaust dynamics: might try a high-flow catalytic converter to help your car breath better as well. None of the above are major HP boosts, but 10 HP here, and 20 HP there... it all adds up. Especially in a light little car. Good luck! Hope it helped...

the key to adding aftermarket parts is having them tuned to work together.a cold air intake can net anywhere from 10-25hpan exhaust can net anywhere from 8-15hpbut if they arent tuned to work together optimally, you can actually lose suggestions would be to go to a cold air intake/ header/ catback exhaust/ s-afc or other fuel computer and get them tuned on a dyno. you can make a good deal of hp by making the parts work harmoniously together.

Ok I am not a hater but I realize that you guys understand that the Honda motors are already well tune from the factory and simple bolt ons net little HP, Intake cold about 4-6whp 10HP max at crank, exhaust with headers maybe 8-10whp 15crank and these are for better motors such as Type R not the LS

if you want to get the best out of your honda motor make sure you get the GSR (B18c) and get the double coiled valve springs. they dont add much hp but they allow you to rev the engine ti 10,000 rpm's instead of 7800 rpm's. intake and exhaust add about 25-30 together, alone they do nothing. you could try to take more air in with the intake but how will it all get out with out an exhaust and vise versa. turbo kit will gain big numbers but you have to have the block built to handle the pressure. or individuale throttle bodies will gain you 50-65 hp with the exhaust, it helps balnce the air to fuel ratio for each seperate cylender.hope this helps you a little bit
