    hello everyone,
    I'm Dan from United Arab Emirates and I got a honda civic vti 2004 gulf specifications 1.7 litre engine, honestly i got this car for two years now and i'm very happy with it, my first question is.. i got 17 inch rims with 215/45 R17 tyres, second is i recently changed my full clutch assembly, but why do my RPM goes on 3000 at the speed of 80kms/h ? is there something wrong in the car.. is it because of the tyre or is it because of something else.. if someone would help me with this i will be very thankfull to them

    And i would also like to know what engine that car has got is it B16 or D16 or what? and what engine u prefer is more powerfull B16 or D16 i would like to know if i can fix em in my car .. my car is 4 door and a sedan i guess in america its honda civic 4dr ex.. if someone can research on this and help me more about my problem in the above pharagraph and this engine thingy.. im too new for all this..

    Thanks alot
    Cheers :D

    well i want to change the engine or make it more powerfull? what you think will be cheaper and better for me ? is a B16 engine will give me more than 150 hp? and if yes how much it will cost me in US dollars, what other things i can do to make my car more better in the way or performance, control?
    Really shocked with so prompt response on any forum, really appriciate that

    i have got another friend with the same car and specification and has got the same size of rims and tyres (17 inch rims 215/45 R 17 tyres ) but hes touching the 3000RPM at the speed of 120.. the only difference between his car and my car is he has got an automatic transmission where as i got a manual

    Alot of people switch out the single cams for DOHC dual overhead cams.. Which would be the b16.. You will get more power out of a b16 and a bigger range of performance parts. Dont get me wrong there are alot of performance parts out there for the D-series but again not alot of people are interested in them. If I were you and had about 10K to spend I would dump a B16 in there and then turbo it, if your looking for alot of power. Now you said control also, you can get some of the performance parts for a D-series like intake, headers, exhaust, and put suspension stuff on it. It's all really what your goals for the car are and how much you have to spend.. It also helps to know if you know how to turn a wrench or your going to have a shop do it.

    Urm...no. Actually it's a D17. And no, you CAN'T swap a B16 into this car. Your options are to turbo the D17 or swap a K-series engine...

    Are they both VTIs? Just because they have the same engine size doesn't mean the engine's the same. And most likely this has to do with the gearing in the transmission anyway, not the engine...

    Right, yeah. Judging by the questions he was asking I deemed him to be at the level where "you can't swap a B16 into that car" to be a rather accurate answer...
