WTF would he run the DX tranny for. Is he trying to go 180 in fifth gear?
:shrug: turbos like dem longer gearin's.
I always knew D > B
Anyways, now I should get a little credit for wanting to boost my D16Y8.
good god of turbos...
he's got an ass load of money in that thing...
....that could be done for cheaper on a b-series.
just because you're original, doesn't mean you're smart.
The results could have also been done cheaper by buying a Corvette and a chip reprogram.
I would do this to my car, and in fact - I think I will.
its probably around the same, give or take a 1000 bucks. not having to buy a new motor will save you some cash. plus youd have to build a b series anyways, you arent going to get 345whp on a stock block. Plus parts will cost about the same anyways.
edit: love his choice of brakes tho
If we're being silly, you could get the results from DETUNING a M5, so eh, good job to that dude, hope it last him longer than a month.
non the less no matter what tranny his choice was , he made the power - and he runs 11's !
he is a true "d series turbo ninja" lol
he could gear that thing a little better
have you ever been 170 in a honda.......
NO HE COULDNT!
he should have bought an EX/Si trans. They're still long, but would be much better for acceleration.
actually there really not even that long...thats what im putting on my setup for shorter gears...and turbo does not like longer gears whoever said that..I hope you were kidding...and as to the comment about he could do that with a B-series..yes he could but wouldn't it be more fun to open your hood to a muscle head and let them see they got beat by a SOHC? also if it blows its not gonna cost him much to start over...
Especially with a D series, getting as much acceleration as possible would be the best thing to do. I was going to do the same with my car as well.
SOHC it baby, my 4 speed trans on the 91 Civ base is geared pretty long - just missing a top gear. The 4th gear is about 100 rpm less at speed than an Si 5th.
anyone got more info. this is what my 85 crx is going to be like.
:unsure: ...2200lb car fully loaded..... with 347hp on the ground..... and you are worried about his gearing choice?
Ill bet that car is capable of mid 10s..... at probably 130 ish.....
