    Could someone point me in the right direction to acheieve more power :Smile:

    Hello @EG6_B16A2 and welcome to HK!
    That is a neat looking Civic you have gotten your mitts on :Smile: we need more pics

    The obvious suggestion would be to get ITR/Skunk2 cams and bigger TB. But the Fabia you are after is clearly boosted just by looking at the torque figure so you have to pile a bit of dough in with proper tuning.

    Honda VTECs are always down on torque and unless you go for a forced induction as well in which case you have a better chance of chasing that vRS down. Even the mighty F20c of the S2000 with its 9000rpm and 247bhp doesn't have that torque because it's so hard revving.

    Hondas are philosophically different. The Type-Rs/VTIs/SIRs have always been about balance rather than big numbers. He might pull out on straights but you can out handle him with a properly setup'd double wishbone suspension.

    Or you can go for K20 swap ;D

    @H-Tune might be able to advise you better Good luck. And keep us posted..

    Welcome to Honda Karma @EG6_B16A2 :Hey:

    I've done a K24 frank swap in an EJ6 and I can tell you it's probably the most manic car I've been in. I estimate it does 0-60 under 5 seconds.
    Rough figures for that I think were 250bhp 210 ft/lb, 6 speed box with LSD ... right animal !

    Hello again and thank you for making me feel welcome :Smile:,

    What would you lot say about installing water/Meth injection (WMI) ?

    Is it worth it ?

    @littlebo has experimented with WMI, would be good to hear his opinions on it.
