back to stock...again

Put back the stock exhaust and intake to gain some low end. I really don't know why I bother anymore. It's a slow car, and I'm not about to deal with all that noise for a few hp. Actually, the car feels faster now than it did with the mods.

Exactly. Swap or turbo. In a few years, maybe I'll throw a k20 in there

lol now I feel really shitty about the money i've spent on just bolt-ons. Makes me wanna cry, i wish i was patient enough to save up enough money for turbo or swap without wanting to buy somethin for my car. I've got 2g's though right now and should have around 5 grand by mid february. What ya'll think I should do? I know about a grand is going towards suspension, so the rest what does everybody think I should spend it on?

Engine swap. Turbo has it's problems, but throwing a new engine in there is a pretty safe bet. I'm just gonna keep mine as is for now and drive it as a civic. It's never gonna be fast on its own.

However, I still have the aem pullies, head port work, hvs, and header on there. I do think they help a little without hurting performance.

Ya I know. The civic is nice, but no way I'm pouring in that much money. It's new car time when that becomes possible.

i like the sound of my exhuast, i knew it wouldnt make me any faster.
The same reason why i never had the urge to buy an intake or header or cam gear or any of that other CRAP.

Ive had my car for 3 years now (48,000 miles)! THe only engine mod i would buy is turbo, and that was my mindset from the beginning

i think it all depends on the ecu

i noticed when i fixed my motor, i reset the ecu, and it ran really nicely as if it was already tuned, according to my a/f gauge
