Pick up a set of IPS cams, the KPro, have yourself one of those high end headers (Lovefab, Hytech, whatever), ITBs, tune the **** and go have a field day. Spend the rest of it on NOT the car. Should you decide to go a little faster... the JDM CR-V 5.03 final drive gear
Oooh, 5.03 final drive gear and JDM Its like the new pinnacle of JDM 31337-ness, its only a matter of time before there will be "5.03" decals right next to the "TypeR" and "VTEC" decals now, j/k

anyone who says sell or save again is getting bad rep. I just ask an opinion on what to do with the car. Not my life. Money is going in to it that is my FINAL ANSWER!

Alright then...
high compression & boost you know is a bad combination. Just ask joedc5, that's how the poor guy blew his itr.

Then again, alot of k20a2 owners are making up to 450hp on their stock block, what's that extra .5 difference.

Honestly, since you got an itr, I'd probably go all motor, and since you're already looking into TODA, get their head package and their itb's.

There you have it buddy.

Why not save $18g instead of just 10? That money could come in handy later. I mean, if you invested that money wisely, you could make it into major cash. Rather than just sinking it into a car...

If you do anything, do something cheaper along the lines of what you want with the car... turbo for speed, or whatever for looks. I wouldn't pump more than like 3k into a car though, ever.

I think you will have traction problems now...

I would honestly go a differrent car or even a bike, but if u really want to stick it to the vic, go N/A. reason is that a turbo will make gobs of torque, and while we all like torque, a FWD car is going to have problem with that. N/A will give you lots of topend, you probably will not have the tractions problems you will have with turbo. But you could get a progressive boost control and ignition control system to tone odwn the power in the beggining.

if you're going to set it up for scca, think about the problems you'll have during a turn if boost kicks in. understeer. i say go n/a if you plan on setting the car up for turning.

That's an ep3 jrsc. If you decide to go supercharger, which would be sick by the way, go with the ep3 jrsc and k-pro. Oh and 11psi pulley

Yea..the intelligent answer would be not to dump 8K into a depreciating asset. Especially a civic.

Man..buy a bike or a boat or something. Take a trip to the caribbean or Fiji or something.

It makes no sense to have 8K fun $$ when you're 23.
