    Nice. You've already gotten farther on your Del Sol as a broke college kid than B has as a mid 20s adult. :ph34r:

    Love the color man. :thumbsup:

    B16 IMO sucks bawls with out a turbo, I had one in my 95 DX and before turbo it sucked.

    If you're staying all motor, with out a doubt, get a B18C

    For future reference, motor comes before body work =)

    I had all my body work done about 2 weeks before I pulled my car apart for motor stuff, I couldn't drive it around, it drove me crazy thinking I had such a extreme looking car with no go.

    Thank god, anything to keep you from turboing the D16 is a good thing, even if it meant trashing your car.

    i really dont think a boosted d16 would have been to bad. Im not trying to make car super fast. I just want more power then i got now. Thats why even a all motor b16 or b18 i would be happy with. I want around 200hp. Eventually i want to build a nasty civic hatch.
