    Hello from Iraq. I'll be here for just under a year so I figured its the perfect time to start my engine build. I'll list what I'm looking to achieve with this build and then what I already have planned. Feel free to comment or offer your opinions, the more technical expertise the better.

    1995 Honda Civic
    Engine Build: B18C/ITR bottom, B16 Head
    Goal is 550-600whp, no more at this time but maybe 650-700 down the road. My goal for now is ONLY 550-600, staying closer to 550. The car may be taken to the strip, but only rarely for time slips. It's being built primarily for show, but will spend the first few years in europe getting broken in. It will be driven maybe a couple times a month and taken to top end. Any impromtu racing will be done from speed, no launches, but want to build for it just in case. Would like to go with a dizzy-less setup on ignition. Car will be boosted, race fuel, no spray.

    B18C Block
    B16 Head
    Block work/sleeving/pnp
    Cp pistons
    Eagle Rods
    Skunk2 Pro1 Cams
    Supertech Valves
    ARP Studs
    Crankshaft, knife-edged and polished
    Supertech Springs
    Supertech Titanium Retainers
    Cometic head gasket
    skunk 2 composite fuel rail
    Victor X manifold
    skunk2 70mm throttle body
    Precision injectors - 1000cc
    Walbro Fuel pump
    ACL Bearings
    Hondata S300
    NGK Spark plugs
    Bushing Kit
    Magnecor Wires
    Hasport Mounts
    Unorthodox Racing pulley
    Exhaust - Skunk2 Mega Power RR 3"
    Wastegate - Tial 44mm
    BOV - Tial
    Hondata IM gasket
    AEM FPR
    Vibrant Intercooler
    Mishimoto Radiator
    Samco Hoses
    Pro Drive oil pump gear
    Coil/ignition - AEM
    Cam Gears - either S2 or venom
    Top-mount Gt30r
    ACT clutch kit/flywheel AI4-XXG6
    oil pan (wet), moroso
    stainless steel fuel lines
    GSR transmission
    DSS 3.9 Axles
    Chase Bay harness
    Rear disc brake swap
    GloShift Gauges
    LSD (Quaife, mfactory??)

    Let me know if I missed anything, don't have a lot of time on the comp out here. The build will be done and tuned by a reputable company that many of you probably know (won't mention them until i start the build). And for those who are in rush to see this started, please note once again that I'm in Iraq right now so it's not gonna happen like that. I'm forecasting the build to take place in March. Right now, I'm just looking to narrow down and finalize my build sheet. Thanks guys!

    Wow.. nobody huh?

    I'm scrapping my ITR block for the build so the B16 head is out as well. I'll be running a full GSR setup now. I'm selling the civic and will be picking up a CRX to swap into. I'm trying to decide which cams to use. Still planning to go S2, just gotta figure out which ones i want.

    still looking for the right ignition setup.. will probably post the question in another thread section.

    I'm also wondering if there'll be any issues using such a large fuel setup after I tune it back.. I'm looking to drop my numbers to around 350whp after the dyno so i can actually get traction on the street. I may drive it more than I originally anticipated, but as you can see there's no mention of a suspension or wheel & tire setup on my build sheet. That won't happen until I get overseas, so until then i gotta do what i gotta do. Will the tuning alone be enough to drop the fuel rate that much, or do I need to look at smaller injectors to make sure I don't flood the engine?

    your build sheet looks pretty good. one thing i see that youre missing is a Limited Slip Diff. I have an mfactory, and love it. the difference between 320whp on an open diff and 320whp on an lsd is unreal. car used to spin through third gear, now it spins lightly in the top of first, and grabs in every other gear. well worth the $$$.

    i am currently @ 320whp on 1000cc RC injectors with no issues. its all in the tune.

    Outstanding.. I was concerned that even with the tune the fuel would still be flowing more than I wanted. Last thing I wanna do is damage a fresh build, especially after putting so much into it. As for the LSD, I've been looking at a few of them, just haven't figured out which one to roll with. But good point, its on my list here, just overlooked it on the thread post, thanks!

    Still trying to come up with a good ignition setup.. Anything else I missed on the list? Any suggestions?

    honestly the stock honda ignition system is pretty damn good. id say leave it in there unless it gives you issues on the dyno. ive seen a few builds with 500+whp on stock ignition systems.

    I'll keep looking around for an ignition setup just in case and talk to some companies. If the stock will hold up on the dyno then I'll definitely stick with it for a while longer since it'll drop to 350, which is more than manageable for it. That would give me about another year while I work on my suspension setup, cage etc.

    yeah, i havent had any problems with the stock ignition system so far.

    if you must look elsewhere though, MSD is probably going to be the best choice.

    I wasn't happy with MSD.. I tried getting info through them and e-mailed them for product catalogs and no response. I used the 6AL setup on my s10 and it was fine, but thinking maybe AEM dizzyless now for my honda. Thanks!
