    I have another question, as of now I planned on a turbo for my B16A1. I want to find the most reliable and efficient way to build a B16 capable of low 13's, possibly into the 12's. what seems to be the best direction in building this engine for a 93 integra?

    Low 13s, high 12s would be quite hard to accomplish with an all-motor setup. You're talking about a lot of new parts and some very good tuning there.

    Going turbo would be easier. You'd still need a lot of new parts, but you'd probably find it more cost-effective to go with a turbo setup.

    Either way is going to be expensive. Just take the money and spend it on prostitutes and you'll be a lot happier.

    thanks for the input, I was definitely leaning more for the turbo setup than all engine,
    i don't think the prelude to integra swap will work, i have never heard of such a thing with a 1993 integra, but i could be wrong.

    thanks for the input, i was definitely leaning more toward a turbo setup than all motor, and i think that will be the plan. i am still open to any more suggestions. i don't think the prelude to integra swap would work well with a 1993 integra, i have never heard of such a thing, althogh i could be wrong.

    Definitely go Turbo, the H22 swap could work but I would not mess with it. It would be more trouble then it is worth.

    Peace*

    just to go into more detail, i plan on lowering compression by replacing stock internals, and i was going to get high profile cams. i don't just plan on throwing a turbo on this B16A1 with the compression it has right now. so keep this in mind when considering the engine to be turbo'd. i am looking to go all out, and build it to the best it can be. bring on the suggestions! thanks

    obviously.

    to put a b16 into the 13's/12's you need a light ass car and a deep pocket
