Spending money on HP is never a waste...just depends on where you want to take the car...if you are going to turbo the car later on...then dont get something you might want to sell later...sometimes things like headers dont retain their value and you'll be stuck w/them or at least not get what you paid for them

So if you are going to stay NA...get an intake, headers, maybe a ECU/chip upgrade...

It'll give you decent HP...but not beyond that of the RSX-S

For the best boost go get a wet NOS system. That'll give you the horsepower you want when you need it.

The base is 160hp so intake,headers, and ecu wont get close to 210.

I have a question, why would you need an aftermarket ECU when your puting on intake and header? Would that really help?

yeah, except you have to replace a lot of parts, and it costs close to 2000. But, a 1000 shot system doesn't need to be replaced anytime soon.

Intakes are where the K20's really open up when you throw on an aftermarket one. A CAI from Injen or AEM will net you well over 10whp and I suggest eventually getting the Hondata ECU to raise the redline.

The intake, headers, exhaust, and ECU combo will get you about 30-35fwhp
