yes you can, as long as you dont abuse it. if you are sprayin constantly, you will endanger your motor if you dont dyno tune it and get a better fuel management system.

i hope this guy knows that the 1500+ bucks he spent on all that stuff probably gained him 5-10 hp, and the plugs, wires, and fuel pressure regulator do absolutely nothing for hp.

yup, plugs and wires help give your motor a better, more complete spark...... ergo, better fuel economy and throttle response

that works only if the stock plugs and wires are failing. the stock honda ignition system is more than powerful enough to ignite the mixture in the cylinders. eric aguilar's 10 second naturally aspirated drag civic runs a stock honda igntion system. if the stock pieces are in good working order, putting plugs, wires, blaster caps, etc do absolutely nothing. all they do is ignite the mix. if they do that, they are doing their job. if your running into issues with the stock system not igniting the mix properly, like in a high compression or high boost engine, then having the upgraded ignition is needed, because you need the more powerful spark to ignite all the extra fuel and air. the only time ignition could get you more hp would be if you cranked up the ignition timing up to beyond where the stock system could work correctly. but this is dangerous and stupid, and you dont get much hp out of it.

U MIGHT WANNA USE SOME COLDER BURNING PLUS, AND MAKE SURE UR MOTOR IS ON TIME OR MAYBE 0-2 DEGREES RETARDED. IF THE KIT U ARE GOING TO USE IS A DRY KIT MAKE SURE U BUMP THE PRESSURE ON UR FUEL PRESSURE REG UP SO IT HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH FUEL AND DOESNT LEAN OUT.
