    I just bought an 86 Civic with is setup strictly as an Ice racer. The engine is a stock 1.5 ew1 with a header, lightened flywheel, and under drive pulleys.

    To stay in my class, I can increase my displacement to 2.0 liters, but I need to keep 8 valves and a honda engine. If I go to fuel injection, it must be stock looking. No turbos or superchargers. I cannot have more than one carb.

    I am thinking or a milled SI head, and 23/36 progressive weber? Is that the best I can do? Looking for power 3000 rpm and up.

    Is there any options for an LSD with this car?
