well you have pretty much all basic bolt ons so far except a header?? headers on a four can weaken low end torque some but probly not much IMO. if your tryin for fastest acceleration youre probably gonna be revving high where the header will make a difference. your power gains might be limited but once again if youre focused on acceleration dont forget about weight. weight loss can help. what about NOS? lol

you could technically run NOS with your stock engine you would just have to run a small shot. as for the headers i say go for it. its gonna let you rev through the power band quicker and pull power faster, plus you should see some hp, torque improvements. now on a long shot you could always try those aem power pulleys if they make them for your car.

Torque? Honda? I don't think those two words can be put in the same sentence together.

unless you plan on getting an 09 with the 2.2 diesel-supposedly 150hp and 260tq

i thought it was supposed to be avilable in the U.S. pretty soon?
