thermostat is an easy upgrade. heat soak causes a loss in hp and fuel efficiency. simple mod for far less than $800. chip would be an affordable upgrade to go along with the thermostat for $800. brakes is also a possability. cross-drilled, slotted and vetned rotors with some good pads. or maybe even shocks and struts could be a good upgrade.

I suggest buying some tokico hp shocks "blue shocks", and some eibach springs. And for about 30 bucks buy some polyurthane bushings for the sway bars, it helps allot.

all motor?better cams i say crower 404s, rods, valvetrain.... ummm or forced induction? turbo cams, t3/t4 turbo at 6-8 without intercooler with stock internals... or anything higher u need oneand ull have to build your bottom end.... high performance distrubutor car and rotor button, external coil.... u got 2.5in exhaust?

he only has $800 and youre talking building the engine? bolt ons would be much more logical.

ooooppsss didnt realize that

800$ ... hmmmm. Dude this amount of money will simply vanish in a better exhaust (headers / cat back), intake, cams and or ignition components. If you wanna go for induction then perhaps you may start investing in parts i-e start collecting parts till u have a decent turbo kit ready to be installed.. yes it will require expensive internals as well. even if u spend 800$ on ur car, without boost it will harldy get you 6 - 8 % over n above ur stock HP.. worth it ?

i would recommend upgrading suspension

upgrade your suspension, maybe throw a thermostat in there both i believe you could get for under 800. (maybe not together o.o) props mate

suspension! get some tower bars for both front and rear and then some sway bar links and bushings for energy suspesion good brand and posibly a sway bar as well. then see what you have left maybe some springs? my friend joe has a integra he sent the block out to golden eagle in cali and had it bored to a 2.0, i forget the turbo he has on it but its pushn 498hp at the wheels its a beast

agree to everyone of those

25

I T B's because they sound SSSSIIIIIICCCCCCKKKKKK, but thats a little more than 800. I would go agx's with a eibach pro-kit and maybe sway bars and a strut tower bar. Maybe some BFG KDW's or G force sports

Everyone is talking about susp. With 800 why not just get one-piece suspension!? Get some K-Sports or D2's... U wont be mad at the ride u'll get. but if u really prefer to get them separat, I heard Koni Yellows with groundcontrol coilovers... imo.
