    Pictures do not work, it say "thanks for stealing our bandwith" Just save them to your computer then upload them into the gallery. When did that happen with your b16a3? (one more of 7500ish b16a3's gone :( ) With your ITR are you going to run a iceman intake or are you going to go with an icebox (cough *safer* *better* cough)?

    new as in no miles? Bet that set you back a pretty penny.

    so are you gonna have the b16 head on the type r block? seems like you would be robbing it of performance if you did that, unless the head is upgraded too....how much did that set you back? and does a block from honda include pistons, rods, and all that stuff?

    i should make 170-140 immediately...possibly more with tuning.

    the block comes complete, rods, pistons, etc...

    the b16a head is virtually the same as the R head...and i'm going to stay with the p30 intake manifold because it makes more midrange power...which is better for road racing.

    i may in time go with spoon cams, spoon valvetrain etc...but it all depends on how my oem setup works out...and if i'm running low 13's with all honda parts...honda reliability...i will be happy.

    2050 is the price i got...and around 2000 is probably the best anyone will find...

    i have a friend who works at acura...although the biggest part of it is finding a dealership that has access to the blocks...as there were only 4 in the country before i got mine.
