    82,000? wow. thats a high revver.

    Stock b16a2/3 is 8000, but it won't kick off the engine until around 8100ish.

    Vtec engagement is 5500 rpm, max torque is 111 @ 7000 rpm and max hp is 160 @ 7600 rpm, redline is 8000 rpm. Stock B16a2/3. JDM models may differ slightly.

    JDM redline is 8200. But you can always raise the bar a little, will need new internals.

    depends what you use it for.

    autocross - vortech intercooled supercharger kit comes at ~3200. Your block is good up to ~270hp.

    turbo is better for anything else other than autocross imho.

    Start small, don't jump right into power adders.

    I'm with E all the way. Safety mods first. Good rotors, good pads, brake lines and make sure it's tuned up properly. A nice suspension setup will help along the way. Learn the car best first when it's slow, then build it to suit your ultimate goal. Intake, header, exhaust, intake manifold, shifter, then power adders.

    SB V8s with fat tires on the back and a 1595 cc FWD engine will respond very differently.

    If you go for nitrous its all in the tune. Don't throw it on and then go spraying it, TUNE it so it will handle it first.
