Pretty much and DOHC VTEC motor would show that thing up and they all fit.. Turbo might be alittle cheaper if you run low boost and not really have to tune much. Nitrous is the cheapestHHimportHH said:I have my fathers tc off the line because i have the cold air and some headers plugs wires and distributer, but i want either more power or a bigger motor what would ye do and what motors will fit that would show that scion whats up???????
all of which can be found out by asking the correct question. and looking at the stickies96civic3door said:Ok I have seen enough bs
Your Y7 is not that bad and can be made quicker with the correct mods.
First and formost you will want to find a 96-00 D16Y8 ex manual transmission and swap it in, the Y8 transmission has much shorter gears and will make your car quicker.
Second there are 2 routes you can go with this. You can do a mini me which is where you put a EX Y8 head, intake manifold, and ecu in your car. It will gain you around 20hp and will cost under $500. The other route is to keep your Y7 head but add a delta cam and a ex intake manifold. It is imparative you do swap the intake manifolds though as it is a major bottle neck for you.
Other things also if you can live without them is to get rid of you a/c and power steering. It will cut back on the parasitic drag from needing to be spun but more so than that it will drop about 50lbs. Remove your spare tire and jack also.
Do a custom exhaust system. Get a header for a Y8, a magnaflow hi-flow cat, relocate your second O2 sensor to behind the cat, and run a 2 inch or a 2.25 inch mandrel bent cat back.
Get a B series throttle body, it will improve throttle response. Also a nice 12 lb flywheel, stiffer motor mounts or motor mount inserts.
It's all about how far you wanna take it and what you want in the end. After all this and that is if you do it I'd say to hit it with a 75 shot wet kit and tune for it. Tunning is the most important part of all this.
