I want just like one more small mod that'll give my car a little more power.
Nothing major like boost or NOS. Because yeah. Not trying to blow my car up.
I have intake, header, exhaust, CF hood, wider tires, short shifter, high flow cat, GodSpeed radiator, suspension, drilled/slotted rotors, and other suspension goodies. But I just want a LITTLE more power while keeping her reliable. So I decided a no on cams. But what else is there? Intake manifold? Or would I need bigger injectors to keep it equal. Being 17 and all, I'm short on money. Big baller making $7 an hour. Any ideas?

you already have the basic bolt ons... the best bet wouldnt be ADDING power, rather FREE UP power lost... like lightweight pulleys, lightweight rims... etc.

I've got rims, and don't the pulleys throw off balance of the motor because Honda uses rubber in the middle to reduce vibrations? How about a flywheel?

a flywheel will help... anything you can do to reduce rotational mass will help.. as for the crank pulley, there are some people who use them with no problems and others who dont trust them.... i myself had my motor balanced without one so i dont have to worry.

Eh, I'm going to do the flywheel, but being that this car has to be my college car, I'm not going to risk the pulleys.
