    I was into the Honda scene years ago with my 97' GSR. I have wanted to get back in for sometime now. I'm an old fart now though and so out of date with things. So I have some questions. I just purchased a 93' Hatch with B16A swap. It has a cheap intake (AEM short) and some custom made exhuast. I was told it had SI tranny. I took it to the track and ran a 14.39. Now it's been a long time......but I know there is no way that the car should have ran that time on radial tires. I had a pretty much stock 97' GSR with just intake, ingnition, exhuast on radial tires an only ran 14.6 at like 94mph-96mph(Not really sure on MPH).

    I know it's hard to say what a engine should run. I know it's always different, but does this sound right at all? I know on the block it has B16A. I guess my other question is what are other things to look at to tell what exacty I have in the car. JDM or US or what ever it (engine) came from? The guy I bought it from had the car a month and knows nothing about the car it was all done by the owner before him.

    If the stamp on the block just says "B16A" and nothing else (like "B16A2 or A3, etc.) then it's a JDM version, and is probably pushing 170 horses at the crank...
