    Default basic mods on civic 96 vti

    hey guys. i wanted to do some work on my honda civic 96. i have a 1.6L d16y6 motor, and the car is completely stock. i have a few questions from the forum experts if possible. i also will be entering the car for autocross (first time) in karachi, so i cant do anything big to it or i will be placed in a category with the big boys [bad idea for beginners ]

    im thinking of getting the following stuff in the first go:
    1) lowering my car with maxspeed lowering springs
    2) getting tokico hp shocks for the added wear caused by lowering
    3) an intake system, non branded as ive been told the hp gains on my motor will be minimal in both cases
    4) plugs and plug wires, volt stabilizer and ground wiring
    5) lenso light weight rims, and bridgestone adrenaline re001 205 or 215/55/r15 tires

    later on i will get:
    1) headers
    2) a direct line exhaust (made from piping only)

    could you please advise me on whether or not all this is a good idea or any alternatives you can suggest. also, i want to try not to complete change the feel of my car too fast so i can get used to it as i go, and i dont want to throw away money from the get go, so some relatively inexpensive mods would be appreciated at first. can i also please be told if anyone knows, how much hp my motor might be making stock, and how much to expect after all the stuff im putting first and if there is a way of testing the car on a computer in karachi to find out and how much it costs.

    would be great if anyone could help! and thanks

    @poster use a stack instead of c.a.i at track day.

    do wat ever you want....

    but i can assure you that u will look like a stupid man without neon. neon light is trend. its for cool people. you HAVE to get it, or I M DISAPPOINT!!!

    it is truly a shame that you dont like neons...you dont deserve this car...
    every true car enthusiast has to have neon lights...just for your reference, the cars in following pictures were driven by the greatest drivers in the world:

    skyline r34 (stock is 300hp or so, but with neon it can produce upto 600hp depending on neon light intensity)

    Mitsubishi eclipse (stock 200hp, with green dual turbo neon upto 500hp, driven by a famous street racer, you probably know him)
    basic mods on civic 96 vti - eclipse from fast and furious

    here's a video to prove my point :



    Please note that red neon(vin diesel rx7) is more powerful, but i dont think you can handle that much.

    yes i will do whatever i want. you should take a look at the Body Work / Interior / Paint / Glass / Appearance tab in the main forums page. if your six and a half thousand posts here are about neons, im sure they belong there. you arent being helpful in this particular thread.

    ^^^google about stack,its a plastic(donut shaped) ring,designed to gather maximum air without any filter,yes this is why it is used at track only and after track throttle body is cleaned by mobiloil,cleaner spray etc.
    yes i meant cold air intake by c.a.i.
