Default Best stuff for Naturally Aspirated car

Hey there everybody. I just got a 2001 2.5 RS. I seem to be having difficulty on getting performance parts for my car. I want get this car as fast as it can, keeping it naturally aspirated. My friend has a 92 integra which is completely decked out, and keeps saying how he can kick my a$$ in a race. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated!

You got a fine car there!

I have been modding my car over the past 2 months. I bought a Ganzflow Intake (best bang for the buck), short throw shifter and a Brullen exhaust. I am getting tires (probably the best upgrade, or so I've heard) next week. And a rear sway bar is in my future as well. The RS is not the fastest car out there but it certainly is one of the most maneuverable. Take it autocrossing and you'll see what I mean. Thats where it thrives.

"spicy" camshafts and cylinder heads from cobb bill make the HP jump quickly but they dont come cheap. other than that, intake/headers/exhaust always seems to be a happy combo.

oh yeah, the cams really kill gas mileage.

I have a strommung exhaust w/midpipe, borla headers cobb intake, unorthodox pulley, and cobb n/a camshafts. Its plenty of power for my car, and I am confident (depending on the mods on your friends car) that you could beat him in the 1/4 mile, but please do it on the track, I lost a good friend of mine this summer in an accident, he was 18 and it was a week before his graduation. He wasnt driving, but the driver was racing someone on long straight country roads but the car was going 130 mph it was a turbocharged tiburon and it went over a hill, got air and landed on its nose, flipping end over end 7 timed before it stopped, killing my friend, the driver and parylising my friends girlfriend. Keep it safe.

KillerTHC, do you have cobb cams fitted?
How much do the cams affect gas mileage? This is the first time i've heard someone mention that they affect gas mileage.

(about to buy cobb cams)

Hmmm, camshaft changing lower mpg eh? Sounds logical though; more power comes from more fuel and combustion, and thus using up fuel faster in return for more power gain (and perhaps speed)

Great info! Now I am considering *not* upgrading that for awhile until I have extra to spend on gas :P

I think most of the N/A stuff has been covered. I just wanted to add something. The guy in the Integra may beat you in a straight line, but a twisty mountain road...less likely...or a dirt road...no way. And not only can your car do all that, but the interior is more roomy, you have a better view of the road, and there are A LOT less Subies than integras. I say you get the usual bolt on intake, exhaust, pulley, and headers, then get the KYB AGX with Eibach springs, or if you have a lot of money a DMS coilover kit, and a 20mm roll bar....then out-handle any street car (on the track).....my 2 cents.

New cams would only decrease gas mileage if the ECU decided to start sending more fuel to the engine.

I guess this is a possibility if the cams allow the engine to breathe more, leaning out the mixture. Your O2 sensor would pick up the lean mixture and the ECU would try to richen it by adding more fuel.

I believe the '92 integra was the body style before the 4-headlight ones. If so they're based on the accord chassis but with a DOHC 1.8L (140 hp, 2700 lbs). So unless it's the GS-R version (which I doubt because they were rare in that body style) you've got him beat already. Even if it is an early GS-R an intake and exhaust should get you pretty close. He won't have a chance in the twisties if you have good tires and some suspension mods.
