So my friend has this '94 Integra he's probably going to have to send to the scrapper. But we want to have some fun with it first. We were thinking of destroying the motor for a good laugh.
I was thinking of a few "mods"
1.) headgasket made from thin paper to raise the compression
2.) taking out a few those heavy headbolts and just securing the head down with lots of lightweight duct tape.
3.) reducing the rotating mass by replacing the heavy rod bolts with lightweight zipties.
4.) maybe "supercharging" it with a leafblower or a couple of hair driers

Any other suggestions?

Since it's an Integra, donate it to the Mk. IV forum. They'll be on it like a fat kid on german chocolate cake.

If it's a running & reasonably safe car, give it to someone who needs one.

Its running, but its far from safe. Rust and a busted windshield, interiors trashed, etc.

That's perfectly roadworthy! Sell it!

Or a Wonka Bar, even.

I say anything you do to it should be in the name of increasing power rather than decreasing reliability. A 200-shot of nitrous would of course be the most fun thing to do, but of course that would cost money.

Dude, if the interior is destroyed... sell it to someone for parts. Hell, I'd pay a bit for a track car. Strip the interior out completely, cage it, etc. If someone is looking to do something similar, who cares if the interior is crap.

Take your car to Jiffy Lube.

Yea. The day I brought my car to Jiffy Lube, I had a massive oil leak - they sent me on my way and my engine blew a bearing. I'm on my 2nd 2.Slow thanks to Jiffy Lube. True story.

If you were to contribute that much effort, there would be more effective methods to achieve a humorous result.
For instance, I'd remove the #2 piston and con rod, then deliver the car to a mechanic for a tune up (reporting that it was running rough).
Or just sell it and have an extra $1000+ in your pocket

Honda motor? The only way to destroy it is to sprinkle holy water on it, while a rabbi micterates on it, while a witchdoctor spreads bones and chicken blood over the intake manifold. Trust me. Theyre hard to destroy. Or you could fill it up with bacardi, lower the compression by shaving down the sides of the valve cover, add octane boosters as you see fit, and start in 2nd gear every chance you get.
