    So heres the plan, to put a b18, into my crx, I have a couple questions!

    I plan on running an lsd tranny, heres the question, what clutch should I run? and where do I get the lightened flywheel?

    Should I do a turbo kit? or build it up myself?

    Also, If I just buy a motor from hmotorsports. (b18), Should I do anything to it to run boost? if not, how much boost can I use.

    Thanks!

    Infamous questions: What are your power goals, and what kind of budget do you have? Figure out what those are and go from there. Most of the time, building your own turbo kit is cheaper, so I guess it depends on what you feel like spending.

    Sorry, posted that quick before I ate, had plans to add more.

    My goals are daily driver, leaning toward race more than comfort.

    Im not sure on power goals, Id like to get the best bang for the buck, and im looking to spend around 3-6 grand. Possibly more if I can get alot more power for a little more money.

    The car right now is a dx, has the stock 1.5 in it, If I could find a cheap b18 in iowa, I would then have more cash for the turbo setup. (3-6 grand includes the motor....)

    it seems like finding a cheap old beat integra would be easier than finding the motor. Try for both, but also try to find an old 90-92 or something teg, and do the work yourself.

    yeah find the teg and then build it up but don't swap it in till the motor and everything is done. strap the turbo on tune YES MAKE SURE YOU TUNE IT. and then see how much boost you want to run and then one of the most important things is make sure you have funn doing it! good luck.
