    ok im planning on buying a integra hopefully a 94 and up body style but ill settle for a 90 to 93 if its in good enough shape... im looking to spend around 4500 on the car so it shouldent be too hard to find one... when i get the car i want to build the engine havent really looked in to the internals and things yeat but i have a hp goal of 300 to possible 350 i want to go turbo and i want to keep the b18a/b depending on the year... money really is not an problem the car is more or less going to be a weekend worrier but i want it to be reliable also i have looked every where on hear to find some build threads similar to what im wanting to do but i cant find what im looking for... so if any one could post me a link to something similar to what im looking for i would be thankfull... any comments would be great also and when i get the car the engine will come out with in a week or two and i will start a build thread on it and post pictures and update it with the progress comments please ^_^

    That kind of power should not be very difficult with a B18. I would try to by a 92+ if you can, or convert the 90-91 to OBD1, as the tuning capability of OBD0 isn't very good in comparison. Depending on the condition of the engine I would probably replace the rod bolts & bearings, piston rings, and head bolts with head studs. At that point you should have an engine very capable of making 300+ WHP as long as you have the appropriate tuning...
