    My bro handed down a 94 civic with b18b1 swap to me. He did a great job of making it look fast but not actually making it fast. It has a stock b18 from an ls. Im just a kid in high school, how can I push more power out of the engine on about a thousand dollar budget? Im new to all this tuning stuff, hell i just recently learned how to change the oil :D

    if you run them on low boost and do not exceed probly 10 psi lets say you should be fine

    You should check out NonVtec forum. I was on there for a while. 98 Civic with 99 B18b1 swap, IHE and Hondata tuned. Car pulls pretty good. Start with IHE if not already done then get a tune. Play with that for a while. You are young and new driving, so drive it around for a while to get uses to a quick Honda. Then go Ls Vtec, its the best bang for the buck and opens way more doors to tuning and head work. I am building a B16 head for my B18b1 block now.
