    Moved to correct forum.. Read the titles, please. Brian even was kind enough to break down the years, not jsut the chassis codes, so READ IT already.

    You can get into the 12's with any honda motor. It just depends on how much money you wanna spend. The cheapest route would probably be B18B with a home made turbo (around 2000-2500). You could get a GSR and have a vtec boost setup (around 4000-4500). Here is where the huge debate comes in. Would it be wiser to have a $4500 boosted GSR or have a $2500 boosted LS w/ an extra $2000 to put into it since I didn't go for the GSR? Since I have seen many guys run 10's and 11's all day on daily driven LS/T setups, I say B18B + Turbo.

    turbocharging any 1.8 DOHC motors is a good option, the H22 can be bored out to 2.4 and still run a pretty fast. if you're going daily driven, look into the B-series motor, but if you want to stick with the h22, get some bomb ass suspension. it's all about combination, running NA, Turbo, SC, or Nitrous can boost you to the 12's with proper applications.

    I have also seen B18B's with turbo's run really nice times, the motor has a lower CR which means you can push it a little more than your standard honda have 10+CR's. I would go with a LS with a good turbo setup. If you like all motor I would recommend a jdmR motor with bolt on's and slicks and 12's is easy to hit with a stock longblock. Good Luck

    Just remember that if a turbo is done right then it is very rewarding but I have seen a lot of peeps "not knowing what to do" turbo their rides and the car just isn't the same anymore, boost spikes, detonation, the constant wallet sucker, more frequent oil changes, this that, just be aware that it's just not swapping in a B series and buying a turbo kit and you have 11/12 seconds on your plate. Just do research and do it right from the beginning and please learn from others mistakes. sorry if I scared you from Turbo but NA has drawbacks also.
