Re: were shoould i start wen i build my car up?

so are you sayin that you will only have 400 left to spend on motor stuff? that wont get you very far. pick two of the following and you can only pick two: cheap, fast, reliable. i dont know all the details about the sh but i know you cannot use a diff ecu. bill (98bb6sh) would be a good one to talk to about it.

If I had an SH I would do a good suspension set up and the best bolt ons possible that way I could have myself a handling beast.

How much are you looking to put into it?

start with the basics unless u wanna do a whole new motor if ur has alot of miles on it, basics would be, Intake, Headers, Exhaust, Itll get u maybe 15 extra ponies max but its a start.

Definitely suspension. It's already a quick car, just can't turn as well. ;P

Re: were shoould i start wen i build my car up?

the best thing to do with honda engines is to open them up.Let that beast breath intake/exhaust/header to start off and then if you want more u can cam it out, but in order to get real power with these engines it takes alot of money so do your research so u will know what you are getting into. Also these mods will only get you 15hp but it allows your engine to access air and get rid of it faster witch will improve your acceleration. The car will rev up faster and allow you to get the power you already have faster. Getting cams could give you up to 30 but you will need tunning. good luck

The thing is she has an sh... tuning is very limited on this car without losing atts by swapping out the ECU.

Re: were shoould i start wen i build my car up?

im with RoccityLuder585 go intake/exhaust/headers

go with a kamikaze header, high flow cat or a test pipe, and get some nice exhaust that isnt too pricey. dont go suspension till you got a good 2k in the bank to put into good coil overs/strut bar combos. unless your racing in something with lots of hard turns and short quick straight aways then i would say save up and go both I/E/H and suspension but most likely your looking at either drag strip or goin 40 to + on the road against someone on the highway...
