    this is for a 93' civic daily driver occasioncally going to the track no autocross. i want to go turbo on both but i'm undecided. i'm lookin' to make at least 500hp. i have a couple questions

    1. should i buy a long block from a company already resleeved or send in my block to be sleeved? what would be the cost difference?

    2. i want a ball-bearing turbo they are suppose to be faster at spooling right? the rpm range is variable any recommendations?

    3. normally wouldn't a h22a beat out a b16a2 both turbo'ed?

    i can't think of anything else right now but if i do i'll b sho' to holla one

    Yep. That's why you see all the people like Lisa Kubo and company running boosted H22's. The extra 6/10's of a liter help alot. However, you're going to run into lots of other issues if you're looking at those hp numbers.

    Money to make sure your internals can handle that boost. Tractions issues, tuning issues, etc. A daily-driven 500hp is not easy to come by. Not to mention making it street legal.

    At 250 hp in a hatch with a stock b16 jspec and ignition systemand turbo at 8 lbs of boost I guarantee mid 12's with good tires not slicks and of course a real good driver

    dont dsay 500 hp that is talking out of your ass unless you are sponsered because it dont take much to move a 1600 lb hatch think every 100 lbs is a tenth of a second just ask people and they will tell you

    I haven't weighed one but 1600 sounds much more likely than 2000. I'm not sure where you got that number but weighing it is the only real way to tell. curb weight the weight on the door is maximum vehicle weight loaded.
