    how much it will need to be built greatly depends on how much power you are looking to get out of it

    what are your end goals for this engine/car

    your going to need everything to make it a 10 second car. 10's is really fast. forged eveything, a really big turbo, slicks, a fat bank account and a prayer. lol but good luck! I would go for a b20 vtec to start your build.

    Uh, yeah...just FYI, The Fast and the Furious is not a good source of factual automotive performance information. A 10 second Civic that you can easily drive daily is not realistic at all...
