    i guess i'd go b20 then, with 12-12.5:1 CR pistons, some crower rods and arp parts, vtec oil line stuff, new gsr water and oil pump, maybe some ctr cams and a skunk2 intake manifold. unless you want to drop more money in for headwork

    this isn't what you wanted, but boost it... its the only way for cheap that you're going to be running high 12's, let alone a 12.4

    The secret to an n/a motor is revs. Run you ls-vtec at about 12-1 compression and spin at about 9000 rpm. if the motor is biult right it should hold up. I would suggest the hondata system and a crower custom grind cam to make it perfect.

    So far this is how my list is coming along.
    GSr head
    B20 block (12:1 c/r)
    SK2 IM
    CTR cams
    GSR water/oil pumps

    would a 00' B16 tranny be good for this set up? Anyone feel free to add/or suggest anything. Even if tis not possible to hit mid-low 12's with my buget (3000-3500).
    Thanx 'Cesar

    do a search, there is tons of info pertaining to what you should buy.


    Key here is to dump as much weight as you can, Light 14inch rims with great tires/slicks.


    SiR tranny is good but once you up the added tq and hp the differential should be upgraded.

    Well to be honest, for your budget of 3k, I say GSR gottom, high comp jdm oem pistons, hondata, basic bolt on's and maybe if you have some cashish left over for some nice cams/head setup.


    I have a pinned post up top with good input. check it out.

    the EG is a CX, and I will have it gutted from the seats back.Ialso have a set of BFG Drag/Raidials 205-55-15 (i think,need to check).So even with what is listed, It still might not be possable to hit mid-low 12's? and as for the "it depends on the driver too" I think i am a very good driver.I hit 2 .500 lights last year,and have been doing real good this year. Thanx for all your help and honesty everyone. :beer:

    yup, your reaction doens't mean dick unless your racing others in a true import event. It's all about 60fts.....get some low ones and your good to go.

    yeah i agree, its all about the 60ft times... i average a 1.8-1.66 60 foot times... but mind you my EG is heavier than yours due to the type r suspension im running... as of right now my best time is 13.23 but i know i can break 12's cause im making more than enough power to the ground [last dyno i pulled 196hp to the ground]... with the addition of a few other trick parts on the car im currently making about 208-215 to the ground...

    oh and if you really want to, you could get into the 12's fairly easily with the b16 you have now... a buddy of mine ran 11.90's daily driven but his b16 was MILLED TO SHIT!
