    in your rearview mirror..wait..
    Well your first problem is that you put a B16 into an Integra. There is a reason there is a stock 1.8L motor in the Integra, and that is the fact that the fucker is heavy. Short of a turbo, there is no way you are going to beat a gsr. Think about it. Integra with weaker VTEC 1.6l vs Integra with stronger VTEC 1.8l..it's a no brainer! If you want to beat him, put the B18A back in and work off of that platform.

    well, theoretically a 4-2-1 header will help a b16a run best mid range power...

    although, you won't notice any differences...the motor has no torque, its just a fact you'll have to deal with.

    its a simple math equation like they all say


    1.6 is less than 1.8

    with agrresive cams and shit youi will LOSE low end torque

    and gain high end HP.

    this will be the only way you can beat him.

    he will get you from a light, but with good cams, intake manifold,
    and shit you should catch back up.

    and from a roll you may pull or be even.

    the 1.8 has more torqe but not that much more hp

    a gsr puts down about 150hp and 110-115 torque WHEEL HORSE POWR
    a b16 145-150 and about 100 torque

    He could get cams that would give him low end, CTR cams won't.

    ctr cams start making power around 4500rpm.

    between 1500 and 4500 a b16a will struggle in a car the size of an integra.

    the answer to your problem is a 1.8 bottom end.

    actually, its the block that is open deck, not the head... also, that can be cured by sleeving... hondas can be turboed and have reliability if done right!
