    :lol: err..don't wanna sound too stupid, but i heard that if a civic has a b18 swap into it, you can't lower your car too much or the engine will scrap the ground, how low can I go, is it safe?

    which is better, turbo b16a or a b18c

    thanx a lot

    if you lower any car "too much" you'll scape your engine, doesn't matter if its a D, B16 or B18. its not safe because you can bust you oil pan, crack your tranny casing, etc etc.

    b18c is better in general because of the added displacement but it depends largely on your budget.

    unless you have air bags, hydros, or tucking 10" wheels with a 30 series tire, you aren't going to scrape you rmotor on regualr pavement
