Wow! *takes deep breath* I've been trying not to really bother anyone by posting a thread, but rather, by researching the hell out of what I need. With that said, here goes... After ten long years, I FINALLY have the means to start my build. At first I wanted a full B16, but now, if people would quit flaking on me, I may go with a B16 head and B18C block combo. I'm giving myself a year to finish the build, as web sites are the only place it seems I am able to get any information from. (yes, sadly I don't know anyone around my area that's into cars) Anywho, this is what I have thus far...*insert drum roll here* a B16A2 head that came off a '99 Civic. I'm wondering what my starting point should be. Currently I'm talking with EvasiveMotorsports and having them put together a package that includes Skunk2 stage 2 turbo cams, Skunk2 cam gears, and an entire valve train. Now then, my ponderance lies as to what I should do first. I've already talked with a machine shop to get the head completely dismantled, hot tanked and port and polished. I'm wondering though if this is all a good idea before I decide what block I'm going to end up with. My horse power goals are 330 and it will be built for forced induction of course, as the cams point out. I'm trying to think the other questions that guys like Blanco, YBLegal or Calesta would ask from the people building anything on here, but I'm drawing a blank. Feel free to drill me, grill me, but most important of all, teach me. The million dollar question stands.... Where the heck do I start on the head? Thanks for your help in advance. P.S. Forgive my stupid ass if I posted this in the wrong place. Engine building seemed appropriate for a build of any kind.
