    Thanks for the compliments. I did not lose much power on the bottom. Stock is 104bhp(at the crank)@5200rpm and 111lbft. of torque @4000 rpm. Using the generalized rule that an automatic suffers a 20% drivetrain loss, that would make it 83.2whp(at the wheels)@5.2k rpm and [email protected] rpm. Now, the only changes I had made was a TripleLude RISC and the 3" Cat-back. My dyno run resulted in [email protected] rpm and [email protected] rpm. So, if you compare, that's a 18.3% increase in max whp and a 7.8% increase in max torque. Just as dramatically, the powerband was moved up 580rpm and stretched from 4k-5k to 4580-6269, a 689rpm wider powerband. that's almost 700rpm more usable engine speed.

    So, no, you don't lose power. But your power band does get shifted. A manual trans equipped car would put down more power, at a 12-15% drivetrain loss. Either way, that's 104bhp(stock) vs. 118bhp, 111lbft vs. 114lbft. A mere 10whp short of the B20a5 in stock trim. A level 2 cam regrind from Bisimoto Engineering would put me at 113whp(automatic trans).
    Other than a 195* thermostat, powersteering delete and air suction valve delete, I have done nothing else to the motor. I am getting a cam regrind very soon, which should push output up another 15%, I has since installed a 2" test pipe, and I may also purchase the very rare DC 4-2-1 header for the B20A3 that someone on this site has for sale.

    they're red, but i think it kinda goes without saying that the color has absolutely no effect on the spring rates... another big factor in bounciness is the shocks and struts. if you're on stiffer springs with blown stock shocks and struts then it will bounce.

    Are those lights a direct replacement from the stock closed-beam headlights or they need mods to put em in?
    Plus, thnks for the link, and I was thinking of getting an HID conversion, so what do I need to do to make that possible, keeping in mind that my front lights are stock rite now.
