1 get together $9k and buy a fully built inline pro 2.5L stroked engine turning 10500rpm putting 278whp
2 just get 4.77 rear gears and accel. faster but using the same hp.
or if you have some serious bank which it seems like you do being you bought a CR
get both and kill turbos and SC's
N/A FTMFW
arent 4.77's a little too much for the ap2? i heard 4.44 is good for ap2? idk. ive been thinking about it, whats a lower priced brand gear with good quality so i can have piece of mind of it not breaking?

thats the thing im not so ballin or i would be boosting!!! my trade-in and credit got me the Cr, $500 a month. i wanna keep the manu. warranty for a while only 6000 miles on the car, already had to replace the rear tires his week, lol

look at mods that will make the care a little quicker now and more fun to drive, that are still meaningful parts you can keep when you go turbo, ie, gears (which i have and were my best mod)

Wait you want boost but you want to stay under warranty ? You do realize that will void your warranty right. Do the basics I/H/E flash and gears than come back and talk to us.

yes i want the warranty for a while which is why im waiting to boost, besides the fact that i cant afford it.

those of you who got the reflash, how long did it take you to recieve your ecu back?

i have 70mm tp, single exhaust, k&n intake but dont wanna buy the headers when i could use that money for gears.

which size gears best fit the ap2? not TOO short of gears, but better than stock?
also what is a cheaper brand that makes good gears?

How long it takes for your ECU to get to Hondata and back is up to you. You can overnight it there on Monday, they get it on Monday, flash it and you overnight it back and you can have it back on Wednesday. I did overnight down and 2 day back and had it back on a thursday. That cost me around 60 total.

Take it to autowave and you can get the reflash done the same day. Might cost you a little extra but pay to play.

If you are set on going FI, I would touch anything. Just save up for the kraftwerks s/c which comes on like a turbo.

Ok, I just made the rules thread and I would like to stay away from posts like this in the future. People need to do their own research instead of making threads saying "what should I do?". If anyone disagrees I would gladly reconsider, but I think this will keep our forum a little less cluttered.

OP- I bet that CR looks sick!
