    I was looking at the Spoon stroker kit for the B16 and it was going for $1,180.... Do you guys think its worth it? Is there any other stroker kits other than Spoon's? What kind of performance enhancement should you expect from this kit?

    i personally feel that stroker kits aren't worth it for the money, others feel differently but if i were to get a stroker kit for my b16, i would go with Toda over spoon

    you can probably find a gsr bottom end for 500. does the same thing, its half the price, and you still have a decent r/s ratio.

    Have the block sleeved to 84mm, and it's a 1.74ish Liter engine then. If you sleeve a b18c GSR block, you suddenly have a 2.0L VTEC shortblock. Granted, this takes special pistons to do, but it's well worth it.

    A buddy of mine with a 2.0L GSR in his GSR went 13.0 in Atlanta last weekend. SICK car. Loock pretty stock besides the Mugen MR5's ;)

    If you read closely I believe that you will find the Spoon kit is for the B16B only, same with the Toda kit. Because the B16B has a taller deck height than the B16A family (it shares the same casting as the B18C with a shorter stroke crank). To use the GSR crank you would have to start buying custom stuff because you could not use factory pistons without buying very short rods. So the GSR bottom end does not do the same thing, you get comprable results.


    If you go all the way to 1.8L on stroke alone with the short deck height of the B16A your R/S ratio will be pretty low. If you sleeve to 84mm and then stroke to 1.8L (or 1.9 at that point) you will still have a very good R/S ratio.

    Uh... damn. I want to see a B16 stroked to 2.17. That would take a stroke of 105mm, which is WAY beyond the stock 77mm stroke. I guess you would move the journal on the crank out 14mm, make it smaller, run a rod that's about 10mm shorter, then move the wrist pin up inside the ring package about 4mm. That wouldn't be a very rev friendly engine... With a 105mm storke and a 124.36mm rod, you'd have a rod/stroke ratio of 1.18438, which is considerably lower than the B16's 1.74493, and even the B18B's 1.539325. I'd like to see a B16 with that setup rev to 8000rpm!
