    I have a '92 civic with a b16 sirII and a p28 ecu. I just bought a chip that will raise my rev limit to 9200 rpms and I was wondering if I should upgrade any part of my engine to handle this? Also I was wondering where to get the chip installed at? I just want to know if it is necessary to upgrade the valve springs or anything else? THanks any help would be much appreciated

    if you are planning to rev that high then yes you should upgrade your springs

    are you running cams that actually make power up there????

    if no

    then dont rev that high

    yeah for real dude, a stock sir 2 b-16 would not be lovin' life at 9200, never the less would it pull to that. 9200 you should have at least, at least R cams, and those still only should be used on like a 8800 to 8900 motor. plus if you don't get springs you could hardcore drop a valve into one of your combustion chambers, and then there goes your B-16. a good replacement for springs would be straight up Type R valvetrain. unless you're getting like skunk 2 stage 2 or like some hardcore todas or Juns.
