do some research. those are pretty big numbers, you would need to go turbo, build the engine, and run alot of boost. Not going to be very cheap...

money's not an issue? build the engine, get a monster turbo setup, an aftermarket intake manifold, exhaust, chipped ecu, a tune, and upgrade your suspension.

that's alot of power that requires alot of research and know how to pull off. if money isn't an issue then swap a K20A2 into ur car, throw an AFI or Full-race turbo kit on it with a GT40R turbo, tune it with K-pro at 12psi. ur gonna need alot of other parts as well but imo that is the baller way to achieve ur hp goals.

oh yea and buy a really good helmet because that car is gonna scary fast lol!

all you need is pistons a good turbo kit and enginemanagement like hondata s300 if you have the b16a2 in that civic. Also if you have the money you could go ahead and get rods and arp head studs. I would keep the b series over the K series if you are going to turbo it. It will be easier and cheaper that way.
