before i put the cool air oil and ign and oil filta it had 95 hp and like 92 tq after i estimated at about 105 hp never estimated the torque thats by going by what the manufactorer said and i would get a turbo or spuperchatger but im pore as hell lol and the other parts the headers ,muffler, radiator and shrt throw dont throw alot on bu my civic really doesnt way that much so the p/w ratio will be the same as any 2000 pound car that is pusshin from 250hp and under or so i calculated i might be worng but the ratios ussaly dont lie ive seen 170hp and 160 tq civic simalar do mine to 12 second passes :blush:

You want to add some power... screw the cam gears and cam first... it can wait. They won't help much if you can't get any air in there- before you worry about those 2 things... you need to get your engine air- I see you have an intake- that helps. Get a bigger throttlebody and then get a better intake manifold. Also, don't just buy a muffler, that's stupid... if you want power gains that matter- free up your engine breathing... get a full catback exhaust with headers and a test pipe (if emissions allow). I'm a full believer in intake system/exhaust system for easiest (to install) gains. Look at the RSX-S- I have a T1R 70mm exhaust on order.. just the exhaust + test pipe were dyno'd and showed a 14 WHP gain... on an exhaust! I'd recommend a T1R or Tanabe exhaust (I own both and they don't sound like weed-whackers or bumble bees.)

l/ nice ideas if i had the money and the time id do that the whole exhuast system im working all motor on this one for the short time i work on this ghetto project lol my first but its ok the only reason i havnt done more is becaus eim saving up for a 3000gt vr4 which would ice my civic and most htings on the road but thank you for the idea ill probaly invest in a cat bac test pipe and muffler then the headers and gaskets but im prolly not gunna drop any more money into it then that
