Default Bang for the buck.

What going to give me the most power for my engine? I have a few ideas but i wanted to get s second opinon on what i should start with on my engine. it's a D16z6. Also i was wondering what is the best air intake system? Is there some that are better then others? there is a real price diffrence in some cases and i am not sure why i was just wondering.
thanks

with just 1000.00, i would do basic bolt ons and some head work. a mild cam (so you dont have to do valves, springs, retainers), a cam gear, and normal stuff, header, cai, exhaust should put you on the right track.

best bang for your buck would be a nitrous kit, if that's what you are into. If not then I would recommend the basics to get started... intake, header, exhaust.

alot of people go ahead and repalce the gear when they replace the cams, depending on how drastic the cam is over stock (lift duration). with a mild or stage one cam, i dont really think you would need it

one good thing to remeber is that if you get an adjustable cam gear leave it at stock until you can mess around with it on a dyno....

Dude you can get an upgrade to the twin-cam head for around $800, which should net over 10 horsepower.

Is the D16 VTEC or Non-VTEC. If its not VTEC, why not just get a new VTEC head.
