How much did I spend, well over $3000 US dollars, How much HP did I get, I don't know yet (It is being dyno tuned), How long will the car drive in this form, longer than the stock engine probably would have lasted. (because the engine is now more efficient because of it being tuned well and as long as I change oil and thing reguraly then I'm all good) Tha's the advantage of NA power.

That is very correct - If you change you oil every 2k and oil filter every 5k and sparks every 10k you will do 400,000 miles no problem. Even with a Crower Stage 3 cam! And even if you take it on a x-track each weekend. Honda

My opinion why people don't go the NA route is 1) because it is the more expensive route when compared to turbo.
2.) Everyone loves the sound of a blow off valve
3.) A turbo engine can be built to make plenty more power than a NA engine.
4.) To make power on NA engines takes more skill and knowledge compared to say turbo engines.

also na is easy to mess up like i did. now i need to tear the engine apart just to put all the stock parts back and have a working car. it does take alot of skill to understand what not to do to this particular engine.

Can you clarify that "well over" $3000.

AEM standalone is $1700, plus you have a stage 3 cam, pistons/rods? (unsure really), I assume you have headers, exhaust, valvetrain, tuning, clutch/flywheel. Sounds a bit more than $3000
