I have a Civic Ex 2000 With all the bolt ons you can think of,
Aem intake , gas reg. Dc Sports 4-2-1 header Hi flow cat, tanabe racing medallion cat back, Apexi Vtec controller, Etc...
I did a Dyno-run today the outcome was 128hp and 105p of torque how do this numbers compare to other civics with D16y8 engines and how can I take it to the next level without swaping engines. IM dropping a b18c1 next year but for now?

Honda's original specs for the 2000 EX:

Horsepower: 127 hp @ 6600 rpm
Torque: 107 ft-lbs. @ 5500 rpm

Remember: Those numbers are not at the wheels.
You have to take into account about 5%-30% losses on a dyno because of friction, contact slipping, etc...

A normal dyno on a stock Civic at the wheels would result at 100hp and like 85ft-lbs of torque.

front wheel drive cars lose about 15% hp. no cars lose 30%, 20% is what awd cars lose.

good items

Zex is selling their lightened flywheels for cheap, and look into their SOHC Cam shaft.

The Cam Shaft will give you about 10-12. The fly wheel will allow you to launch faster.

Will run you about $600 in total I think.

i heard stock ex's put about 95-100 to the wheels stock. from what i remember it's not much less than the si's torque ex 107 si 111. and i know the stock si put's like 100 or 105 to the wheels stock.

You have to consider the losses in the dyno. It is the contact of the dyno to the wheel and then you have to account for the dyno sensitivity. Of course most dynos don't really lose that much, but if you want to be specific, you have consider those losses too.

Clutch, flywheel, camshaft and sprocket. you should be happy with that. I'm pushin about as much as you and people rag all the time that i shoulda got the si. but if you add it up you have spent less to attain the same amount of horsepower. depending on the driver, Si's aint a thang, LS's aren either actually i havent had any problem with any car that pushes 160hp at the fly. an i think thats good for a single cam with minimal mods, so kudos to you.

128 at the wheels is pretty damn impressive. All of your mods have increased your horsepower at the wheels by about 22-27 horses based upon the average stock ex's 100 horses at the wheels.
