sup driving enthusiasts, i'm pretty new to cars and have been trying to read on beginning to autox/road race and car setup. I know suspension is a good starting point. does anyone have suggestions/inputs on making a good setup?

i've got a stock 06 rsx manual, looking for 250-300hp

shopping list
-buddy club N+ suspension
-bf goodrich g sports ultra high all season tires 205/50/15
-ngk spark plugs
-front/rear swaybars
-front/rear strutbars
-k&N short ram intake
-lower control arms
-camber kit
-hawk pads w/ slotted rotors
-looking into the gtk and gt30r turbo
-researching flywheel and clutch..i hear fidanza is good. i had a xct not exedy clutch on my eg, seemed like it was pretty good, grabbed real nice for what seemed like a generic brand
-3 in piping for turbo
-researching exhaust
-researching headers

do i really need new fuel injectors? or will the stock be able to support at least 300hp? i'm just listening to people and then trying to research the answers. your guidance is much appreciated. i still like to hang with cars on the streets but on the weekends would like to run on tracks and relax for the rough days from work. i hope this make sense too.

First learn to drive before you start modifing anything. Get good tires, all season tires are no good for anything other than driving in crappy weather, change your brakes, skip the slotted rotors, and do any needed maintenance. If you have to modify, intake, catback exhaust, shocks, and a sway will keep you in a stock class

Going turbo is just asking for alot of problems and alot of maintenance.
Do a search on Honda Tech's Road Race section for RSX setup there's alot of info out there. G/L

You're definitely going the absolute wrong way in terms of trying to set the car up. The biggest issue is going to be power under the curve, you don't need 300hp to drive around cones and you definitely do not want 300hp on a road course without any real ability or way of understanding the vehicle dynamics.

205 all season tires on a roadcourse with 300whp will pretty much end up with you dead in a wall. Here's what i'd recommend:

Nix the turbo setup all together, shit, nix any horsepower upgrades all together. Keep the car stock, focus on building the car from the ground up, literally.

Get a set of Enkei RPF1's 17x8 +35 wrapped in 235/45/17 Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec and a set of Koni Yellow struts wrapped in ground control sleeves. This is going to be the absolute perfect starting point for you actually learning how to drive the car, I'd personally rather drive a bonestock car to it's absolute ****ing limits then worry about wrecking my overpowered fwd car whilst still trying to learn car dynamics.

well, for the power aspect of it...

J's header, J's ti exhaust (its only 10 pounds) (cat delete), K-Pro, Tune, Skunk2 stage 2 or 3 cams, or get custom cams and full valve train from Go Power Motor Sports, J's carbon fiber Intake, 11.5-12:1 comp pistons, 93 octane... Im sure that should be enough.
