Default I Economic Performance

Hey gys is been a long time since i dont post anything....thougth i have some questions. How can i boost my car performance with as less money as possible?? any idea of engine internals or something. So far i remove injectors filters. cold air intake without by pass( should i put bypass?) and a carbon fiber muffler 2.5 inlet piping and 4 " tip.


Now. i have a 95 honda civic ex, d16z6 SOHC vtec.... how can i make the vtec sound louder?? i almost can hear it because is too low and becaise of the noise of the muffler. but i would like to make something to her the vtec screaming when activated, you know hear that dramatically change in the sound.

Thanks very much for you help

I don't know much, but i do know individual throttle bodies give you a nice increase in power and those things scream at mid to high revs

That is so wierd, considering we drive almost the same car, and my cross over is clear as day.
