    cant decide on whether or not to get a crx or 88-91 civ hb for b16a jdm swap

    so far i'm looking hard at a jdm motor from ard performance, anyone had any experience with them?

    here is what I'm lookin at :


    B16A2 (1.6 DOHC V-TEC) 170HP

    1.6 DOHC 16V VTEC 170HP Honda motor . Direct from Japan. Includes engine, hydraulic transmission and grey plug ECU (For 92-95 Civics & 94-95 Integras) Can also be adapted to older vehicles with transmission and harness adapters.

    Gen 2 Engine, CableTrans, ECU, Harness, Axles, Shift, Linkage, and Mounts for $1695.95


    also curious to know anyones timeslips with a basic (intake/exhaust/header/cam) b16a swap into either crx or civic hb

    Thanks any info is appreciated

    those are not good times!
    i know a guy with a 4door 92 civic that runs 15,3 and another one with an esi(ex) 92 hatch that runs 15,5!
    you should be able to get low 14sec times in a 88-91civic/crx with a b16swap.

    the guys i know with a b16a1 swap run mid to low 14's. im not sure about altitude but it in the kansas city area.

    i'll be really pissed if when i get done with my swap i can only get a 15 sec slip.
    im hoping to keep up with my friend shanes 14.1 2000 Civic Si Turbo.

    well i would guess kansas city is better than LACR because the pros always bitch about it and shit i mean if u dotn know LACR is like a dirt bowl the elevation sucks they give u like a .5 second difference and if u look at the track from the start u are going uphill. so like a b16a2 in that hatch elsewhere would run about 14.6 to 14.7

    ummm reaction time makes no difference. you can have a 932740724 second reaction tim and still pull a 10 second pass, the timer doesnt go until you start.

    well at palmdale a b18c1 runs like 14.5's and a type r runs 14 flats so like i said before unless everyone cant drive then i think its the track. i need to go to another track so i can get some easy 14s and show that it isnt me.

    Start your own thread n00b. Don't post on 3 year old threads.

    This has nothing to do with racing/driving techniques. Post this in the Accord section.

    Swap an H-series motor into your car. The B16 doesn't make enough power for your heavy ass family car.
