But it still have no power. im selling it. and ialso lower it about 2inches. i looks nice but i really wanted get s 2000 model civic.
A: Turbocharge it, you’ll easily make more power than a B16A swap, even with the stock engine (assuming it’s healthy). You could build your own kit for around $1,500, or buy a pre-assembled kit for $2,500-3,000. On top of the kit, you’ll need an engine management system, to pay a professional to tune it (for the most power and for reliability), and possibly injectors (if the kit doesn’t come with them).
Check out these sites, and take this idea into serious consideration.

Q: 2000 honda civic si? What Are Easy cheap Ways to Increase Horse Power on my car?
Any ideas besides intake and exhaust?
A: once your breathing mods are done i’d do the ecu, you could get a shop to chip it for your setup for a pretty low cost ($80 give or take) but don’t take it to just anywhere use a well known shop. other than intake, header, exhaust and ecu tune there aren’t really any other cheap mods with great gains, unless you consider cams, intake manifold, fuel pump, injectors, flywheel etc cheap, you can get some of these at a reasonable price but not real cheap. you could get a hondata intake manifold gasket for around $60, and if you don’t live in a cold climate you could bypass the tb coolant lines (for $5 maybe), that will keep your IM cooler, won’t be real significant but it is an improvement. some freebies would be getting rid of weight, and remove the power steering belt because that car is light enough to turn relatively easy without it. you could also remove the a/c belt (if you don’t mind the heat), getting rid of that parasitic drag won’t be a real significant change but for such an easy free improvement… why not. make sure your plugs and wires are in good shape but unfortunately upgrading them will not make much of a difference without upgrading the distributor, coil and so on.
hope i gave you a few ideas at least, keep in mind the mods i said you could do for cheap or free are not exactly wow mods but they are a step in the right direction without having to spend much money.
Q: where can i find a good 96 – 2000 honda civic engine for cheap in philadephia?
A: Best thing to do is call a big Honda parts supplier bec now a days you can order a used low mileage Honda engine from Japan and get it shipped for 400.00 to 600.00 in total.In Japan their smog laws are more strict so many vehicles there get scrapped with 90,000 kms or so on them and they test the engine fully before shipping too.
Hope that helps and best of luck.
Q: Why can’t I find normal/cheap exhaust parts for my 2000 Honda Civic?
no OEM (way over-priced), no high performance! I just want some cheap, normal sounding exhaust parts for my car. I want a downpipe, cat, and catback system. Please let me know where I could find parts like this cheap on the internet!
A: Those should be simple to find – but consider this – an aftermarket cat and downpipe will not significantly change the tone of your car, so you should consider the less expensive “performance” pipes and cats available.
However, you will not find a decent cat back that won’t change the tone of your car – the stock system is restrictive, and quiet because it is restrictive. Most aftermarket parts out there focus on performance. You should be able to piece together a system rather easily, however, and mate it around a decent, quiet muffler sized to the pipes you get.
I put together a “cat back” system for my Tacoma, stepping up to US size pipe using sections of mandrel bent pipe, straight pipe, and welding in a Thrush muffler to replace the obscenely expensive OEM piece. I could have just as well gone with a much mellower muffler, but I wanted cheap and reasonably sized. Point is – I spent about 60 bucks on all the parts, and I have a mandrel bent system that works.
Q: what is a quick, cheap and easy way to beef up my 2000 honda civic 4 cyl sohc std. shift? ?
the car has a header, exhaust, and cold air intake on it now and it need something. I am replacing the valve guides, seals, and timeing chain soon so i will have the head off of it.
A: well since your doing that you might as well go ahead and get some hotter cams and little bit larger injectors. its that or get a turbo or nitrous. you could port and polish but it wouldnt be worth it since it doesnt really net that much more hp if the ports are matched accurately already. if you wanted you could also get a new clutch and lighter flywheel. while those dont make more hp generally speaking it does free soem up with the lightweight flywheel and the newer and higher clamping force clutch will allow you to use more of the hp that the engine provides to the wheels. if you plan on getting a light flywheel be careful because you have to rev the engine higher to get the car moving compared to stock. all has to do with physics and rotating mass.
there is also the possibility of an itb setup but i dont know if there soem out on the market for stock civic engines (only guessing thats what you have)
anotehr possibility is an engine swap but since you already have I/H/E on youre money would be gone from those upgrades

p.s. can i just bring my car to the car wash and spray the engine with water to clean it or do i have to clean it by hand?
A: basic upgrades:

-change/replace the exhaust pipes…two or two and a quarter inch is good
-buy a quick shifter
-coil over springs
-upgrade the clutch
-spark plugs and spark plug wires

*yes you can but try to avoid spraying the “electronic stuff” like the fuse box or anything that has to do with wiring.

Q: What is the best way to achieve lowering with great ride quality in my 2000 Honda Civic Ex?
I heard through my research that cheap coilovers and lowering springs cause a very bad and bouncy ride quality. I want to lower my Honda possibly 2 inches, not too low but want to get rid of the ugly gap on a decent set up of 16″ rims. I forgot the tire size but it’s not a big tire. Any help is greatly appreciated! any thoughts on camber kits, new shock, etc. would be helpfull!
A: Get good quality of lowering springs if you want to lower your car to ensure good quality ride. Also this will not ruin your camber and suspension. Try TEIN and JAMEX lowering spring for your civic. Hope this help!
