Do a pulley kit, hondata and rims, brakes and suspension if you haven't done that already.

BTW...did you order the header through the DC5AB buy? If so I don't see your name on the order list and James and I are the ones doing the buy.

If you didn't go with the buy, who did you get it from and what did it cost?

i'd go with a good suspension set-up.. not much more you can do except for building up your internals

FORGET PULLIES. Pullies just break at higher revs and don't add any horsepower. And I don't like motormounts, they just make the cabin shake a whole lot. Buy some springs/suspension if you want to get rid of wheel hop.

What you need to get now are the following:
better tires
better brake pads and rotors
a lighter clutch and flywheel
a Type S 6speed transmission, or a Type R transmission (if you don't care about gas mileage)
front and rear sway bars
suspension

That's what you should do next.

Like some of the guys have posted- Suspension, wheels, & brakes. Nothing better setting off the ride than no gap, nice shoes, and great looking and performing brakes/ rotors.

Paul, the comptech race header comes with ES Motor Mounts to prevent the header from clanking against your front sway bar!

beatred, you should dyno or run to let us base owners how everything worked out for you. I have just gotten my race header installed (cai install tomorrow-sunday) and planning on getting hondata and maybe hondata img. It would be nice to see a dyno or a run to give us some insight. Oh and forget the pullies (unless unorthodox comes out with some for the base), supposedly it won't add much any how.
