Default 2000 Si

Been reading this site for like 3 hours. Got some good stuff. So question to the experts. I got like $1500 to spend on my civic and i waned to know what mods would you recomend. I already got headers, intake and exaust( think about gettin a new one. But dont kno which brand... Flowmaster?)

All the money i spent on those mods and i still got beat by my roomates 2007 Sicon tC stock. His is stocked at 160 hp. Does not seem that those mods really helped much. I am still kinda new to the whole stick thing been at it for about 3 weeks but havent stalled in awhile. Think thats why i lost. Another question. When racing i usually shift at about 7800 rpm. Is that the right time or earlier?

Thanks in advance.

i'd say shift a little earlier...

i'd say work on suspension, yes, it does help your launch therefore decreasing your 60' time

maybe advance the timing just a little, and run premium gasin it, that's the easiest mod

idk about the flowmaster idea, look into other brands such as apexi, dc, borla maybe, piece together your own

that's mainly all of the "bolton's" there are unless you get cam gears, cams, etc.

When you say advance the timing wat do you mean?
And do cams really help that much?
I plan on turboing it later on like christmas or something. I want to get everything else out of the way before that.

oh, ic, you're going the turbo route, then forget everything i said, don't worry about the timing then

just piece together your turbo kit and research a lot and get a good tune, then you should be around the 250hp mark maybe, depending on the turbo size and what not....
