    Just bought my first honda today(93 civic hb). I am planning to make this a drag car. I was going to strip it down and take it to a body shop and get it painted and repaired( some minor dents). I'm also going to purchase a fiberglass front and rear bumper. While this is being done i'm trying to decide what motor to install. I was figuring if I should just buy a block and head and get all new internals instead of buying a complete engine which has a lot of stuff that I don't need or do I? does anyone have any suggestions. Thanks

    Go to an SCCA miata race...Every one of the miatas is messed up, dented and completly bondoed or dinged back into a kinda miata shape.

    What is your Horsepower goal? N/A or Boost? Kinda important.
