    i hit 14.6 in a del slow with a b16 sir II but it was lightly modded.

    what is your elevation? a 00 Si runnin that slow = bad driver or high elevation

    I had a 00 Civic Si for a bit. I ran @ about 500 above sea level. After some practice I got my 1/4 time down to 15.4. The car was completely stock (still had original rims and tires) with full interior.

    There's some idea for ya

    i don't think dallas, texas has a high elevation.

    but a b16a in a civic hatch should roughly be a 15.0 @ 91 (estimated***)
    the stock si runs a 15.8 in the quarter. so it all depends on the elevation, weight of the vehicle, and driving skill.

    hope you have fun with the b16a2 once you get it. i'm looking to get one into my 93 hatch.

    Raised compression with different pistons or head gasket... Maybe increased flow with aftermarket manifolds... Possibly even CTR/ITR cams. These would be my guesses for the B16A running mid-13s.

    But perfect driving conditions with an excellent driver will help as well.

    i dunno 16s is shitty IMO, i'm hoping to hit at least low 15s with the LS swap with a ghetto ass intake (cost me 10 bucks for the filter) and a mixed up exhaust (egay cat, custom piping, egay muffler).

    Dallas, or the local 1/4 track in Ennis is around 800 or so above sea level. It is higher then San Antonio's RiverCity Raceway. People usually run .2-.4 slower at Ennis then RCR.

    man... i need to get out of the hills of PA. that H22a Civic EX would have seen like a 13.8 rather than the 14.3 at Beaver Springs Dragway.

    Bullshit. Jason (2litreEG) and I are both running B18s with over 11:1 compression, high lift cams, and a bunch more shit and he runs 13.4 on slicks and I run 13.9 on 17" street tires. No way a mildly built B16 is hitting low 13s on street tires. unless it's gutted like a stinky fish.
