f those thigns know one will be able to pin point how much power you will make put with those mods i would guess anywere from 175whp-200whp and between 120wtq and 140wtq mainly because there just bolt ons. if you want more power look into high compression pistons, ported head/intake manifold, valvetrain , cams etc

wheel power... closer to 170 more likely. Alot of those mods dont directly relate to horsepower, but traction and gearing issues play just as big of a part.

first of all don't be running greddy iridium plugs. Get the plugs that your manual says to put in. You are wasting your money with iridium unless you are boosting. You are going to be running way to rich with 700cc injectors. Unless you are boosting that stuff won't really help you. higher injectors won't do anything unless your motor is built for them. You should throw a bigger head gasket on there and some high compression pistons. honda's run rich as it is. I have never heard of someone taking a d series bottom end and putting a b series head on it.
