    My name is Nick, I am turning 18 in a few months (december 21) and i will be purchasing an EG6 Hatchback. The reason I am going for a civic is because it can be a track/street car. I am going to build this car eventually from the ground up, as a project for Auto X. Where I am from there are many back/windy roads and I love taking them at higher speeds than usual drivers. I am going for lightness and lots of RPM's, therefore I decided to go B16a. I am planning to stay NA but I, like many other owners will want that extra power, thats why I am going to stroke the motor to a 2.0L with 10.1:1 compression . I found due to my last project (mkiii supra) that you can't mod something and expect the next part to last. so i am going to do all the seals bearings intake exhaust cams valvetrain fuel system and ignition system. I have hook-ups for painting and welding so body work and roll bars are not an issue.
    Thanks for your time,
    Nick

    stroke + revs = bad :D

    keep stroke the same.
    bump compression and do head work :)

    thats why i was going to see if he had the b16a yet. i would say to get a gsr or slap some ctr pistons in it if he already had the engine.

    i dont have the motor yet but i plan on getting the motor by the end of summer so its ready for the actual car. i know the GSR is a B18 but B18 what (b18b)? i had plans but you guys are much more experienced then me with hondas. here are my plans around 220-250hp at the front wheels, with no boost and prefer a higher compression and a redline of 8500+ can anyone lead me in a different direction. thanks for the welcoming by the way.;););)

    gsr = b18c1

    220 all motor at the wheels is going to cost a pretty penny.

    probably need 84mm bore, massive headwork, stage 3+ cams, all kinds of valve jobs, 1000 dollar headers, etc etc.

    good luck :)

    yeah, i doubt you will want to go that route.

    if you want that amount of power, get the b16 and a supercharger. it will be like having an NA motor but cost about 1/4 of building it NA.
