To revive some dead horses you can use seafoam, which can be found at almost any auto store.

As for torque, it's a Honda..

If you really are serious about power you can always supercharge it or do a full engine swap. Bolt ons don't really help much.

How much are you looking to spend. This would be a good place to start. Also is this a daily driver? What are you looking to gain out of it? Once these are answered then I think we can best help you.

yeah it is a dd, i was thinking maybe put a grand into it, and eventually another g on some coilovers. i dont want to spend a bunch on a new exhaust right now but i do want to get some bigger sound out of it, can i remove any part of the exhaust to get it rumbling a bit more? i havent even looked at it yet i just bought the car saturday.

ok with that being said start with a Jpipe and test pipe since your looking to get best bang for your buck get richies jpipe and test pipe or race pipe for a tad louder sound. Get a lightweight crank pulley with a new belt. I would start with that for now and see how you like it and what direction you want to go. I might be selling my bored throttle body which I feel added a little gain a high rpms. Also how many miles are on the car? You may want to take apart the intake manifold and clean it all up and then change spark plugs. Also check the valve adjustment if that was never done.

already got it, unless you mean something like this under the hood


I would seafoam it and that should be it. If you were local I wouldnt mind helping you on some other stuff but I live near Philadelphia PA.
what kind of other stuff, i am actually driving out that way on the weekend of the 1st of august

seafoam would be a good start. I just seafoam my friend car today and damn sooo much smoke it had 80k miles on it.

If you need pulley let me know I am gaining interest in the pulley for the v6 people.

I would be interested in that, i wonder what it takes to make these pulleys, a friend of the family is a master machinist, and has all the equipment necessary maybe i could figure it out and have him make a bunch cheaper!
