    The Holley has nothing to do with what I quoted.. you can make loads of power with a carburetor, and a Honda is no exception.

    By the way he also made it work according to his other post.

    Never said power couldnt be made with a carb. There are tons of cars out there that run single or dual carbs that make a ton of power. Heck, my dad has one of them. He runs his NHRA chassis camaro that has a stroked SBC that runs a 9.61 1/4 mile. Its rare to even find full NHRA domestics running carbs. Heck its 2007. And the ones who still do; its because its what they know, its what they grew up with and dont want to get that technical to go EFI.

    Back to why i posted what i did: If your looking for info on how to put a Holley carb on your honda civic you prolly wont find a whole lot on this forum. Fuel injection on a honda is the future. It was the past and just like anything; Im sure it can be done....

    Anyways....

    Okay I think I see what you meant with your original post now.. it was misleading the way your worded it which made it seem like you thought a carb wouldn't make power on any engine. However, I guess I should retract my original statement now that I see what you meant..

    Actually, one of the fastest N/A Hondas runs around the same time(before switching to FI); carb'd F22A Honda Insight. He(Bisi Ezerioha) switched to FI only because he couldn't get the carbs to run rich enough with methanol. Before switching though, I believe he was at about 400whp or more(he achieved like 260-270whp on a D15 on pump fuel).

    A single carb can work well if you build a good manifold for it. But, a 500cfm one sounds like it's too big.

    yeah thinks for your opinions but i think that it runs pretty good i had a guy named LYLE CHERRY a guy known for volkswagens make an adapter plate to fit on a d16 intake then just had set screws put into the fuel injector holes it runs just a little bit rich but other than that it runs pretty dang good i will try to get some pictures up soon
