    For all you guys who have built up a B16 or B18 (or anything for that matter)

    Has anybody built up a motor that has exceeded their expectations?

    Have any reccomendations for parts combinations?

    tell me your story........

    Thanks

    WOW! :eek:


    You mean to tell me that nobody has been impressed with how their engine turned out!

    That's too bad.

    I guess I don't know what you want from this. When I finished mine it didn't have more power than I expected. That is not saying that I am not impressed with it.

    yea. i had higher expectations for my b16 than it gave...
    i wanted to go faster than the frank lin eg2, but i didn't

    i ran .3 slower than he did, but i had full interior and a terrible 60'

    i wanted 175whp on a b16 w/ stock block.... didn't happen...

    see where this is going!!???

    go 1.8L or more!!
