    Pick 2:
    Low Cost
    High Horsepower
    Very Reliable

    Go from there
    Low Cost, Very Reliable: Keep the stocker
    Low Cost, Very Reliable: Do a D16Z6 Head, or motor swap
    Low Cost, High Horsepower: Boost the Stocker *you need ALOT to do a reliable turbo setup though, it can add up very quickly
    Low Cost, High Horsepower: D16Z6 Headswap, Boost it. Again, You can half-ass a turbo and get plenty of power, but you will pop something sooner or later
    Low Cost, High Horsepower: Juice it
    High Horsepower, Very Reliable: GSR B18C Swap
    High Horsepower Very Reliable: B16 Swap
    High Horsepower, high cost: K20, K24, B20Vtec swap,

    I'm just throwin some stuff out there, I'm not going to reply to anyone arguing about my post, just FYI, just what I have read, and researched about, so noone be stupid please.

    how did you get the first letter of every word capitalized?

    oh, if you want a simple/cheap/quick build.

    ls b18b swap
    skunk2 coilovers
    intake/header/exhaust
    brembo blank rotors with hawk hp pads

    how much hp does a stock b18b engine drop?
    wouldn't a Z6 be a bit easier to deal with?

    i stock b18b will put you in the 120-130 hp to the wheels.
    a z6 will put you around 100hp to the wheels. the b18b has wayyy more torque though.

    but yes, the z6 would be way easier to swap in.

    it has relatively the same amount of torque, but has about 20 more hp to the wheels. it will cost about $1000 more than the ls. for that much, you could turbo the ls engine.

    the crv motor sucks. it doesnt' rev for shit and the manifold is too tall for an eg.

    b16 or b18 is your best best.

    He's in California- head swaps are out of the questions, as are turbochargers on top of non-factory setup engine swaps. The only turbo setup he can run is on a D engine in the car.

    The board auto-corrects all-capitals to every first letter capitalized.

    That's why you swap the intake manifold to a B18B. The CR-V engine revs the same as any other non-VTEC B18.

    Anyway, I don't think the B20 is an option in California.

    if he swaps a b16 and gets it BAR'd i'm sure he can run a turbo kit for a Del Sol VTEC as long as its CARB legal.. i'm looking into the same thing

    That's a possibility- you have to be friendly with your smog ref.

    Saw a quick news clip on that before bed and I was on the verge of real tears.

    Looks like I need to get the rules for CA smog nailed down for my ride before I do anything serious to the motor.
    :(

    Initiating research....*now*.
