    dont waste your time or money on a B16B if you plan on going turbo

    get either an LS or GSR engine and start building for turbo

    HAHAHAHAH!! HEHEH! HOOOO!! 10's... hehe...

    No, not even close. You won't be able to run 10s in a civic... unless you have 30 or 40 grand sitting around to make it race-only. It's hard enough to get a civic into the 13s, much less 10s. Even if you do manage to break into low times, it won't be street drivable.

    Yeah man, you're looking at lots of money and not a daily driver if you're wanting 10's. But I'm sure it would be fun trying! Give it a shot. I saw a video of a Civic with a b18c type r turbo pulling on some monster cars. 12's are more realistic for a daily car.

    Have fun!

    Are you kidding me? Motor swap, bolt on turbo kit, some suspension work, gut it, and nice tires, and you're there. But then again, that's like about 8grand or so.

    if you wanna run those kinda numbers: first- it will not be streetable, second- hope u have alot of money lying around, third- going with an h22a will be your best bet to even get to those numbers without dropping like 20k+ into the motor. thats just my .02.

    If it were that easy, there would be A LOT more Civics in the 10's. Find me a 10 sec RELIABLE Civic that's not an nitrous. Simply gutting it and adding slicks will not put you in 10's. I can make a D16Z6 run 10's, but that does not make it A.) reliable, B.) practical, C.) streetable, or D.) cost effective.

    unless you are planning to rip the block open and build it from there then yeah you just can't bolt on a turbo and think your going to get 10 sec. you have alot of work to do. go with a ls vtec and build the block from there or get a cr-vtec which has low CR and run turbo at like 12 psi and go and be happy

    the only car you will ever run 10's on an 8 grand budget is an old nova/camaro and a lot of luck finding cheap used parts.

    a built bottum end and like 20-25 psi in a gsr will run 11's in a civic, ive seen it, but i dont think you have enough money or luck to find those parts cheap. sorry bud aint gonna happen.

    Easiest and best way would be with a B18C1(GSR) or B18C5(ITR).

    Both are DOHC VTEC 1.8 liter engines, however the ITR has more power unmodified. Probably the better option is the GSR because it's similar to the ITR and quite a bit cheaper. Starting with a GSR and going from there would be the best option for a tuning base. A GSR will run 12s with some work, and should still be daily drivable.

    I was talking about 13's man.....meaning his comment about getting into the 13's is tough.

    For me it would be... you know, limited budget and all. If I wanted a 13 second or faster car though, it wouldn't be FWD I can tell you that much.

    Werd, Daily driver look at 13's high 12's, but a motor doesn't run anything, there's a ton more to it.
