Default thinking of v-taching my car

Stickers make the car go faster too, slap a whole bunch of those as well. Try the turbonator i heard it gets you 20 more HP so thats worth it. Def get a V-Tack, actually get two and youll get twice the HP. Lastly get a huge wing so your car doesnt fly away.

Yes with low 17's in the 1/4 you will be hanging with the "BIG BOYS". Heh sorry that is all i have to say

general rule of thumb...... you get flamed less if you actually do some level of research about the car you own..... or how about the general line of vehicle that you own..... after all.... they say what type of engines honda's have during commercials..... otherwise..... what blkcurrantkord said ^_^

but i hear so much kewlness about the v-tek. its basically a mini turbo and your honda is slow without one.

OH and i SHOULD get a wing!!! i almost forgot how practical those are on economic commuter non racecars.

but did i say something wrong?i thought carbureted cars from the 80scame with lots of hp. i see them lowered with lots of chrome and they look sooo goooood!!! omgz

80s engine are outdated and have very little hp compared to today's engines. Seriously is this thread meant as a joke? If not then I really don't know what to say.
