    alright as most of us know the b16s are gutless wonders.. but because i live in CA i can't use the b18 block legally .. so i was thinking since i'm moving soon and will have my own garage... i want to build a b16 block on the side since i can smog my b16..

    Whats the biggest i can bore this out to.. and will that increase the torque, if not.. what can i do to increase the torque from a b16 block

    hmm... looks like i need to start doing some research ..

    this is just an idea at the moment.. could happen, could not.. we'll see what the money situation is like after buying the house

    Picking up 30 ft lbs on a b16 would make for a damn nice ride.

    I see. Well that really sucks. I'm kinda thinking about LS/V-T.. but I've heard tuning is a pain in the ass.
