don't expect some super speed boost from basic stuff - these are low compression 4cly engines they aren't going to come to life with bolt ons.


MONEY will make your accord faster - how much do you have to throw at it?

Is it just not worth waiting to buy a better platform?

exactly it's an accord. save up and get something a little better and keep this as your dd. only thing that will make it remotely fast is boost.

i agree, but if you are like me you KNOWINGLY bought the car ( civic in my case) knowing it would take alot of work to be fast, so the better platform thing isnt always the case.. IMO this guy didnt know what he was getting into....oops :hug

the driver makes the car faster. best bang for the buck modification is always the nut behind the steering wheel. do a search

he should do suspension manual or auto....but the best bang for the buck is still the upgrade of the nut behind the wheel.

1. you can boost any motor
2. your car is a manual? did you check your slave cylinder if it's hydraulic
3. did you check your your shift linkage?
