gettin torqued up

ive heard from people that puttin on only an exhaust system will actually lower my 0-60 cuz it takes away torque. is this true? and what can be done to put some torque into my integra Ls the cheap way (under 300 bux)?

Yes, you will lose some of the torquey feel down low but the catback will make for smoother power delivery and stronger feel in the upper RPM.

The Best mod I experienced for my LS with relation to I/H&E was the AEM/CAI.


I already had a short ram air installed on my Ls. Too bad, i shoulda waited until the shop got the CAI but i was jumpy and bought it under pressure. intant gratification. im thinking an ecu would help, but then i need headers and stuff so i dont shorten the lifespan of my engine when i decide to sell. u guys got any suggestions as to ECUs ? its for a 96 integra Ls
Theres No need for and ECU change with what you have right now. You won't gain anything much.


thanks for the tip b4 i wasted money. i guess engine mods would be in order. cam, pulleys, header, suggestions? cuz i know my engine could do better, but the factory settings are holdin me back.
