    Well...one of the chevelle lovers at the shop just bought a 1987 CRX DX. (wanted it for the carb :p)

    Anyway, just wondering if yall have heard about any insanely modded carbed CRXs out there, and if you have, hook a brotha up with a link. He's convinced that he can get at least 250 Horsepower out of this lil 1.6L engine. Its possible but not without boost or nitrous (i say). I give him 140 to the wheels before he hits the wall with that engine.

    250 all motor from an 87 CRX?? No. Thats 156.25 hp/liter, I dont know of ANY all motor applications with that kind of output.

    Edit: In the car world, 16000rpm bikes maybe.

    well if i was him i would liik into like 17-18:1 CR and 4 alcohol side draft webber carbs lots of head work and this is probaly going to take custom piston rods and cam i dont even know if this goal is posiable with a 12v motor you should talk him in to do ing a carbed b16 i there i have seen one that made 218 at the wheels with webber sidedraft carbs and 13.5:1 CR

    tell him good lick but he should think about a more modern 4 banger for his project and i should work out well

    alcohol definitely isnt out of the question for this build, i was just seeing what the hell he thinks he has up his sleeve. The guy builds top and jr fuel dragsters...so i would hope he knows what kinda goal hes set for himself.

    Not on me... :cry2:

    I'm pretty sure that was the D. He had a tuned resonator chamber on the header and was revving to 11k. Do the math, it's possible. :)

    He make it if he can flow enough air. for a 1.6, that means serious revs and A LOT of head work. We're talking monster ports. This thing will be like a kid on crack. And when it dies, it will die hard.

    I know I'm late, but I've spoke with Bisi about his engine before. He was making like 240whp while still in street trim/driving it around town. Ran 10.2s I think; in the CRX. With the F-series, he's around 300whp and running 9s in the Honda Insight...with a carburetor on that also.

    It'll be interesting trying to compete with Bisi; as Bisi is a chemist [​IMG]

    i forgot to update this. now that ive seen the engine it was a D15A2. I talked them into just doing a V8 swap (havent decided on the specs yet, right now its a 42 MPG commuter) into that CRX and then buying an 88-91 and then doing a turbo B-Swap. They discovered getting a D16A1 was kinda difficult and getting it to work right would be even harder.
