    a kit is a kit. it's not specific to any setup, it's just there. people build kits to have specific parts from everywhere. you aren't going to see bad gains, but you wont see numbers like if you were to put on together yourself.

    what is done to the engine??? if it has been dyno'd at 200, 300 shouldn't be a problem. but if it is built for N/A you will spend a lot of time on a dyno tuning it so it doesn't blow up.

    if it is, then you are good to go. you should be able to pump out quite a bit of power. do you have dyno sheets? i don't think you have 200 whp at that low of compression.

    i'm assuming he also had a turbo or nitrous. cr-vtecs are going to put roughly 160 to the wheels. it will be even less with low compression pistions. the tq numbers will fall off too. get the turbo kit if you don't know much about building one yourself. then have it installed and hit the dyno.

    IMO, the only time a greddy kit (or nearly any off the shelf kit) should be bought is if you live in cali and need the card sticker.

    what b20 did you use if you know? I've heard the b20b's are terrible for the walls being weak, but if re-sleeving fixes it then i'm thinking about snagging this one close to me. Frankensteins are pretty sick IMO
