Question type: Car Customization

will the power be there? is it a waste of money?

i haven't been able to find cams for the  4 cyl, but i have been told that any k series cams can work for my car.

sofar i have a CAI, what other N/A mods should i do in what order to get the most gain? should i work on the engine before the airflow? suspension would come next

CAI, full exhaust, thermostat, throttle body, and chip. all super simple mods with decent gains. thermostat is the easiest gain and the cheapest.

Well what i intend to do to my ep3 civic type r is the Frankenstein build. basically, this means using a k24 block and bolting on to it my k20a head. with aftermarket pistons and rods, you're looking at a pretty brisk car. k20a.org has loads of info on this. it's also known as k24/20. this would be the first step you would take into making SERIOUS power. i forgot to mention that you would need some engine management for it to run properly, KPro works great for me. im not 100% that Kpro would work in your car, you'd have to ask the fellows over at Hondata.com/forum or k20a.org/forum about that. cheers :)
