    OK, heres the question...tell me if this sounds reasonable....

    B18B Block
    Type R Pistons
    JDM B16A Head
    Type R cams, Springs, Retainers
    8 Lb flywheel
    55 Shot of Zex
    Intake, HEader, Exhaust, No Cat.
    Skunk 2 Intake Manafold


    Do you think that this setup could run a 12.3 with Slicks? Someone told me this, and I am curious if anyoen thinks it possible. Also what do you ESTIMATE the HP on thsi setup might be.

    he said she said... BULLSHIT! possibly? ive seen people run 13.9 on stock b16's and other guys ran a 15.4, many factors are a variable. No one is going to tell u what ur going to run. It sounds like it is going to be fast, but do it, run it then tell us :D

    it's hard to hit a 13.9 with a stock b16 in a crx. my friend reyes ran at best a 13.8 on slicks with a b16 in his crx and it wasn't stock.

    as for you being able to hit a 12.3 with an ls/vtec setup on slicks. I doubt you'll it a 12.3 but I could see you hitting a high 12. go get it tuned before you run at the track.

    Definitely possible- the engine would be slightly built with a 55 shot of juice on top, so just add a semi competent driver and I'm sure you can get to 12.3.

    if it's built and tuned right it can be a very reliable setup.

    I think you mean cometic headgaskets, but what do you mean by what can you expect from something like this? do you mean in terms of horsepower and torque?

    Nah, on the engine alone with slicks in a chassis that light, 13s should be easy. With spray, 12s aren't a problem. You just have to know how to drive it. I'm amazed at all the people with crazy amounts of hardware that can't drive worth a damn...
