Best bet is to save yer money and buy a stainless cat back system, decat and manifold!! But all mods are expensive so imaffraid you'll be saving more than modding lol

for a start you wanna get yourself a proper catback exhaust system and like gibbs said a decat and manifold!! get the exhaust fumes flowing nicely ;)

after that your gonna have to start spending a little more money if you want power gains lol

also a point you have to remember is, theres no point having 600BHP if your fly wheal, gear box and tyres cant put that to the road. Remember power is nothing without Torque. My mates desiel has less power but more toque than my car civic and he could easly challenge my civic at a drag. So if you want speed you have to work on torque too, as Civic's lack low end torque. Try to get a manifold and lightend flywheel that will improve low end torque as that will help to free up a bit from the engine. But you need to have good tyres, or your just going to be ripping your rubber trying to get the power to the track.

Check the engine bay and there should be a plate at the back of the engine bay under the windscrean and that should let you know what model car you have and the engine type

^^^^^ AND the TURBO!!! The ebay turbo's tend to be cheaply made and will break a lot quicker than a more expensive turbo. If the whole kit cost's 550 im guessing it's ebay, as the cost a of a GOOD turbo (turbo part only) would start from about £500 Try these websites, MUCH more expensive but your getting quality parts
