i think the 6th gen EX has 26 more horses than a DX/LX, thats including VTEC head, intake manifold, and throttle body. So expect like 15-20 with the mini-me, and a bit more with hte IM/TB

^+1

I thought about doing a mini me but ended up deciding against it as if not done properly it is not reliable at all and vtec is just one more thing to go wrong. If you plan to boost just stick with the y7 and just use the Y8 im/tb
