    what model is your Civic? if it is not a STD model, you need 90-93 Integra axles for the 92 B18 swap, if it has the 92 intermediate shaft - you are not going to break stock axles (new or rebuilt) with a stock B18A

    What do you mean, what model? Sorry im a noob at all this and am really interested to the whole thing and want to learn as much as I can. Its a civic hatch manual trans from a 92 integra. I bought the car with the swap already done but it needs a new diver side axle. I plan on upgrading to more horsepower and torque and just want to make sure I dont break anything. I want to run it on the track and see what the 1/4 mile time is and a dyno before I go any further. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    since the swap is already in it, you would need 90-93 Integra axle

    Heres the breakdown. You will need a 90-93 acura integra half shaft with 90-93 integra axles to fit the b18. The acura dealership has these brand new and will handle stock b18 horsepower and beyond.;)

    anything cheap but reliable for power and launches. basicly put the power to the ground. doesnt the strut tower bars keep the car from flexing?

    plan to invest in something good and provide long term life span and the strut bar does not flex on stock tires. If you upgrade front suspension or all you must use strut bars as braces to hold in place. For example racing on slicks bigger tires than oem you must need strut bar to prevent binding and flexing of suspensions;)

    I'll keep that in mind but I doubt that I will ever use slicks. What type of clutch do you recomend?
