    Hello

    I doubt anyone remebers but about 2 months ago i posted i got a 2000 v6 mustang over a crx/civic for the fact of the great deal i got on it. and with only 20,000 miles on it. It was a steal at the price so i bought it saying i could atlest make it run 13 if i wanted to. So i went off resreaching on v6 mustangs and whoa!. I came to a simple thing that some these v6 guys are off better buying a civic then dropingall this money into a v6 mustang. Then i found out about thats it has same hp and some civic engine blocks or even less torque then some inline 6 blocks out their. I was like god damn. So with a little convincing from some friends and leveling out my wages on looks or performence. I took performence naturaly.. :D
    But not for the mustang but for a honda. It came basicly to a conculision that i just need to build a honda and get out my system if thats all i do because ill kick my self down the line if i did not atlest try it. So after the Winter months up here in New England Im going CRX shopping :D. Thought i should share the good news (to the ones that care :p

    Inline 6s for the most part put out more torque then the same size V6

    most bigger trucks "dump trucks and such" use inline motors

    btw check out my sig=)

    subaru, nissan, DSM, etc......not to diss hondas in any manner, just cheaper to build one of those

    I was thinking the same thing.... get a 351 Windsor... it'll bolt right in to any V6/GT chassis.

    The Escort 1.8 (114 ft lbs) put out more torque than any D16 sohc vtec as well, and the 1.9 version makes the same as most of them with 107 ft lbs. :p

    <--- wants another Escort to fuck around with. :D

    BPT? is that the turbo motor??

    those are nice numbers for the 1.8 though. ill hit you up with some numbers when i turbo my 1.5 in the spring. :D ive got most of the parts... but they may have potential to end up on a secret weapon.

    It's a turbo 1.6 actually... :D

    BPT=American 323 GTX 1.6L DOHC with AWD (or FWD) turbocharged sedans. :worthy: :worthy:

    The confusing thing is the JDM version is also called the BPT, but it's a GTX 1.8L DOHC turbo engine. Same hp/tq numbers, or you could get the GTR with 210 hp, 200 ft lbs(?) :eek:

    Basically......

    BPD8=NA US versions of the 1.8L DOHC (found in Proteges, Escorts, Miatas, & Mercury Tracers)
    BPT= North American 1.6L Turbo
    GTX= JDM 1.8L Turbo (180 hp)
    GTR= JDM 1.8L (210 hp...and very rare to come across)


    [\babbling]

    one of these days I'll learn about Mirage motors too. :p

    Build a honda. The technical info about them is easy to find, parts are plentiful and reasonably priced, and they are easy to build.... Really easy.

    well Mali brings up a good point. But I'd be happier in building an LS6 350 with a fatty supercharger on top of it. :D Chevrolet has THE LARGEST aftermarket support, ev4r.
