you could always go a d16y8 and turbo it... the engine is like 300 bux and then a turbo kit is about 3k for a legal one.. you'll be putting atleast 180 to the wheels if you do it right with a good engine..

Do a mini me swap by keeping your block and adding a complete D16y8 cylinder head and adding nitrous on 60 shot. Nitrous is definitely the cheapest way to go faster. Zex is a safe nitrous system and best for it's $$$.

Re: Cheap Way to go fast ?

Geophrey, i've noticed you've been posting questions as to how to modify your honda for cheap. There is no cheap way to modify a car, if you want quality stuff that is going to last or improve performance, it's going to cost quite a bit of money. engine swaps are $1,000+ to do, $1,000 being that you can find a motor and parts for next to nothing and have friends to help you swap for peanuts. You can buy cheap **** on e-bay but it's going to be cheap quality, good luck sir.

I heard you get 10HP for each sticker you put on and 20HP for flame decals that's cheap, reliable and it makes you look fast.
