start with the basic: intake, header, and exhaust

After that then go for the head and stuff like that.

an si head wont work with a ex block. you'd need a complete swap.

unless you do a d16z6 head swap... which is completely pointless on a 99 EX. [8D]

yeah, it'll lower the compression, maybe a good option for turbo though.

screw that... get the edelbrock turbo kit for the d16y8. It'll get you a CAI, exhaust header, garrett GT28RS turbo and all you'd need to do is get a high flow cat and a 2.5" catback exhaust like the RS*R Exmag.

Edelbrock dyno'd 178 to the wheels with their turbo kit on an otherwise stock y8.
