Hey!
They have some pretty decent parts at procivic.com

I put in a 95 lx in the search, and it looks like they have GReddy camshafts that fit.!

630 bucks though. =(

This IS a civic forum...why would we laugh??? I happen to think that's one of the best Civic body styles yet.

a camshaft isnt going to do much by itself. If your looking for power, f/i is the only cost effective way to make decent power.

OK ill try and do a complete break down. first of all im going the all motor route. I and a few friends will be doing all the work. Im looking for around 200-250 horse without the bottle somewhere around 350-400 with. Im willing to spend around 3g in total. its a manual. If you guys would like I have a good portion of the first stage of the build already picked out I can post up. As of pick I can take some tomorrow. the car physically isn't in the best shape but I work for a auto body shop well mobil auto shop so thats not to much of an issue but yeah if you would like a complete list of the build, well the first stage any ways I can link it up and you guys can critique.

200-250hp? All motor? You have a D15b7 like myself and you simply cannot make that much power with that motor with an N/A build. A nice all motor build on a D16z6 yields somewhere around 150-170hp which starts off with a stock hp of 124 (correct me if i'm wrong, I know its close to that).
