Man, internal mod, can't do that. Mainly bec. I don't know how to take out and open my engine and don't have the money to pay someone to do it. I live in Lake Worth, Florida and don't trust modding companies here (they charge very high on labor, recession is in full effect here because several big name retailers went out of business):tap::tap::tap:

dude sorry to tell you but even 200 whp is gonna run you some loot, you do realize that are hp rating is bench right? our cars are not 197 hp to the wheels in stock form, if you wanna stay all motor, then you have no choice but to do internals, with basic bolt ons can hit 200 and a bit more but your prob looking at a price of $1500 to $2500 to reach that. good luck with the build.

just go to the dyno where the guys at the top of the "200+ WHP club" went. You'll probably get 200 whp with a bit of Vtec juice...
/sarcasm off

In all honesty, dyno numbers are irrelevant. At least + or - 10 hp, for our cars. You'll see a lot of cars with the EXACT same mods throwing 10 hp higher than the other.

Best sounding, cheapest, and decent bang for buck is an intake. Start from there.

Yeah, man Ive been looking into the same thing. And Ive found,
SRI/ CAI- 180-300
Race Header-400+
Cat Back- 400+
IMG, TBS, TBG- 197

And from looking at the 200 whp thread you can see that this is the setup most of them are running and theyre all reaching 200-217. Whp. Im personally looking at Injen SRI, Vibrant w/HFC, Greddy Evo2, and P2r TBS, IMG, TBG, ( Corsport has a package for 197). Good luck on your build.
