    The only thing I know is

    We've had a 86 LXI hatch back for just about a thousand years and it's still pretty clean. It is a 5sp runs like it's scared of something. But that is my knowin of honda stuffs. Can somebody tell me what id the motor it is as stock as it could be but it scoots pretty good.so I am asking the hondaologysts for your guidance. Header ? Turbo? Thanks

    I believe your car comes with a a20a3. Theres still headers available for it. Is it fuel injected? If so, i think theres a turbo intake manifold for it. Might have to have the turbo exhaust header fabricated, though. Nice nail.

    i dynoed when i installed my header and it made like 112whp and 120 torque. factory exhaust with just a 2.25 inch cat back made 107 with 110 torque. i paid around 3-400 to gain 5whp and 10 foot pounds of torque. you might as well give it a good tune up and advance the distributor a bit. or you can ball out like i did and do a b18c1 swap from the integra gsr

    B18c1 swap since 7/2011
    175whp and 132tq
