Im sure you could use an Apex-i Afc to play with fuel curves thats the only thing i could think of. Try juice :p

i just want a little more power off the line...i think taking the cat out would help too...but i gotta pass air care here... do you have juice? do you have any pics of your car... i never see 96's... i am in bc and have seen 2 in the past year...lol and both times they were stock with old ppl drivin em... I think i may be ruining acura's image...lol

You should be able to get a decent power gain from a properly built intake. The stock intake box doesnt have a nice velocity stack after the filter. Obviously if you know fluid mechanics here, there is room for improvement.

as for removing or replacing the cat, I bet there can be significant gains. The stock cat is super long so I am sure there has to be a good amount of power loss there.

There really is not anything that you can do to an RL for performance I was going to buy one but when I found this out, it turned me off about buying the car. I love to mod my cars and if I can't mod I won't buy.

One of the only things I have done is to replace the air filter with a K&N open air...which did slightly improve performance...but mostly just gave her a deeper voice... I know that removing the CAT would make a HUGE difference...being that the CAT itself is HUGE.... but unfortunately for me..I have to keep her legal...BC sucks for that...lol I still think the car preforms amazingly with no mods...although...a little juice would definately make her go... but i just don't race her enough to make it worth it... even though some ppl would love it...lol
PS
the new 1.7EL...feels like a colt on 3 cylinders...lmao

they are the stock lights.... i haven't touched them.... the whole car is pretty much stock... except for the rims and an open air filter... if you wanna see nice lights check out hotstartups ride... HIDS ... very nice ;)
