You dont want to know how much money I put into my car to get 191whp(220ish to the crank). Or how much I will be putting into it to get 300whp.

Buy nitrous for $1000ish, 75hp increase.

getting major HP put of Honda is pretty exspensive at times the engines are so close to a race spec you wont believe it, but it does not not have the ability to produce great gains cause 1 Displacement, you get minor gains with bolt ons but they are solid motors. so if you want the power you got to spend but with the right setup you can have a mean street and strip terror. Some of the newer swap combos have yeilded pretty good numbers look into there

well intake header exhaust are a must, after that you could get an aftermarket cam, possibly a H tranny swap for better gearing(took .7 off my 1/4).

If you could get a JR spercharger and modify it to fit the F22 you may just have a winner but it will take some good machine work to doit. AThe JR superchager for the prlude and cut thearea where you run the bolts through and weld some from the f22 intake it may just work

LOL .... TB spacer is only good for a place to put the fogger nozzle. F23 gets slower with a header.
