    Well i am buying a 92 civic hatch this december :) I am going to swap the motor right away.I am going to go with a B16a2 usdm motor.What do you think about putting in some ITR camshafts,ITR outter valve springs and inner and some CTR pistons?I know it might be a guess but around what power will i put down?And what can i saftly rev to?

    why don't you just buy a GSR? it will cost you the same and you will make the same power probably

    If you want to rev higher you must redo your valve springs and retainers, I would suggest some dual valve springs and some titanium retainers. Also I agree with B you should just go with the GSR motor (B18C1), then maybe get some internals for that.

    www.importreview.com has some dyno charts of 1.6, 1.8 and larger n/a honda engines.. check it out

    but get the gsr... even if you dont put down a ton more HP .. the torque is the big difference.. i've had a 1.6L and a 1.8L and without a doubt the 1.8L is the shit. i ran 4 tenths faster at the drag strip JUST by swapping to a 1.8L block.

    Yeah i was just looking at that,But thank you for any info that is given.


    See i was looking at the gsr motor befor.I was just going to put a nos nitrous sytem on it at a 75 shot with all the other supporting mods B)


    But now i think i want to stay after from nitrous.I'm still young and dumb and i dont need any tickets on the highway.

    So the mild build of the b16 seemed as if it were going to be better for my ''road trips'' :( Any info or help you guys have at all would be great ;)

    If you want the power as well as a durable motor i would get the b16b they're a little bit harder to find but there good motors

    I wasn't talking to you I was talking about the idiot posting before me.
    Almost a grand would be somewhere like 800 and up. here you're talking about 700 price difference.

    But if you're looking into the b16b, then it is still not worth the five extra horsepower that it has over the gsr swap. the gsr swap is cheaper by 700 bucks and has more torque to boot.

    NY to PA with CTR internals in a B16
    Thats a really good idea :thumbsdown:
    You do know that your CR is going to be aroun 12.2:1
    I hope you know a good tuner cause your daily driver aint gonna last long

    You can last a long time on 12.2:1 compression. It's really not ridiculously high in a street driven Honda engine, even on 91 octane gas.

    I agree with Cal you can run 12:1 compression on a street daily driver just get it tuned properly. I was going to run about 11:3 on a daily driver. There are alot of people running around that same compression on daily drivers, don't believe me ask B16.
