I'll take 25HP plugs.

Only options are a 3" civic pipe, and custom bent stuff, which will run about the same price. 3.5" and around 45* bend (give or take depending on your cars configuration) will be optimal for a series II. Give yourself plenty of pipe to start with, 20" on the long side, and atleast 9 on the short side, so you can trim to fit. Find a filter according to what pipe you have and go have fun.

Don't forget heat shielding.

He might just be mis-informed. It happens all the time. That'* why this forum is here, to clear up the confusion.

I would make that my vote. Misunderstanding.

You gotta watch your numbers very carefully... these guys KNOW what theyre talking 'bout... almost to a fault

Lots of mod links around here.. pulley on your SC proly a good idea too with a CAI, headers, exhaust... etc etc. search "first mods" and such things.

not quite long enough though... the closer you get the filter to the headlight, the better shape you're in.
