chips dont do much on N/A cars. the only thing there really good for is get red of the stock rev limiter. your better off buying something esle i think personaly. i would out some money into susption, the only way your gona get a big difference in power is forced introduction or nitrous with a soch.

Save up and buy a turbo :thumb: . Unless you do some other mods putting a chip in it won't do much.

build the block on the honda, Ive seen lots of aftermarket components for a b16 motor. Some sohc hondas are sleeved they have these cross hatched and etched titanium sleeves. handle alot of power and heat

Work on the internals of those things and they go fast

Ive had good luck with Cheetos. Lays are okay but I dont like the power curve. Doritos are best for the street beacuse they arnt as "crunchy". Good luck.

wanna chip ur civic eh? Crowbars make pretty good chips. If you drive fast enough on a gravel road...the little rocks can also chip your car pretty well.

Really the only way to squeeze a lot of power out of a civic is to slap a bunch of decals on it....i'd say you'd gain a minimum of about 50hp to the wheels.
