downpipe is illegal in most states. Cam gear wouldn't do anything for you.

how much more power would a down pipe give me anyways??? and would my car have a more unique sound that would make the cops pull me over to check my pipes and $hit??

down pipe woould pretty much do nothing for you. even with header intake and exhaust your looking at maybe 5hp gain. but it would make your car a bit louder with a downpipe.

would a VAFC help me at all?? i mean it wont get me power but i can have VTEC come up quicker...thus....have the power last longer than having to wait for 4,000 RPM's...
other than that i need a good 5K...damn!!!

VAFC II wil lgive you about a 2hp increase, all it really does is increase your timming. your vtec hih cam engage ment comes in at about 2800rpm under full throttle anyways. nitrious will run about $1000 for a good setup and all the goodies with it nice was much cheaper because i got it used and it is a dry shot. my turbo kit ended up costing about $1200. but i have the SF fuel system until i can afford the AEM EMS a k-swap DIY will be about $6000 for a type-s swap.

well, i like the turbo idea a lot...but i dont know how much it would be to reinforce the Auto tranny...i would go stick but i cant drive it because i was born with a F*** up left hip...thus i cant use the clutch that well...anywho...what kind of turbo u got??? and what kind of HP gains u get from it??? can u really feel more of the power?? plus is thier a lot of lag???

bought the manifold/turbo/exhaust/IC and pipeing used with 8k. did the install myself. or else it would be about $500 for a full install. hardest part was getting the adapter and the oil line in the back of the engine. i did however get all new lines fittiings and hoses so thats what made the price
