Ah, I'm having horsepower problems again...]

As straight forward as this thread is, I'm stuck.
I want to get my car ready for just entry street racing, and then build up with what I need to get faster,
I'm thinking that I'd just want to start off, with intake and exhaust,

Anything else?

Thanky

Intake, Exhaust, Header. ---your basic bolt-ons.

Lighten flywheel with clutch ---clutch is where power is transfered to the wheels...wak clutch=wak power.

Gut your trunk, remove rear seats, give the Lude a diet.
Inspect your tires.

Do timely oil changes, lubrication is important if you plan on high-revving the motor...

otherwise, rip it up and drive safe out there! pounce on dem Civics!

DJSERGESLiK will become famous soon enoughDJSERGESLiK will become famous soon enough
don't by rims

If u got the si wheels, just get 205/50/15 tires for better torque or even get like 14" wheels. Get an ACT clutch kit + Fedanza 9lb or 12lb Flywheel. CAI, Headers, maybe cut down the cat for better exhaust flow and a good exhaust.

If u dont use AC and dont like power steering, get rid of that.... Also this is the dumbest thing I could think of, is getting rid of ABS. The whole thing will probably get rid of about 150 LB's.

I take no responsobility for those things man lol.. Do them if you want to. LOL

Haha, My friend actually did take the AC and power steering out, and supposedly it gave the car more horsepower (AKA: made it lighter)
I'm not sure if I want to give up powersteering, because I had an accord without powersteering and it was a pain in the a$$.

But yeah,

Thanks guys, I actually just bought a new crank pulley, and cold air intake...it's already got exhaust, but I'll have to look into headers
