    Hey guys i got a question i have a 1999 civic ex coupe with a ls vtec the block is b18b bored to 81.5 Usdm b16 pistons arp rod bolts the whole nine the head is a Gsr ported and polished with dual valve springs and retainers. the car is kick ass but i just want more ideas on how to make more power maybe CTR pistons with B16 fully built head so i can run on pump gas and B16 Tranny so the gears will wrap up faster right now it run's fine with the ls tranny with phantom grip lsd. But if u guys can help me on some combonation's to make my coupe a killer i would appericiate it. :D

    Just go with cams. Skunk2 Pro2's arent bad for you. Just get some S2 adjustable cam gears and have it dyno tuned. Ditch the LS transaxle for a b16/gsr transaxle.

    Rocket M22x cams are pretty diesel camshafts and work extremely well with mild + port jobs.

    Meaning, they make good power. They are compared to the JUN-III's or s2pro3's.
