    I've been wondering this for awhile now and sort of know what the answer will be but just want to be sure.

    A friend of mines once had a EK Civic sedan with a " rally " tuned engine but he's not got a clue to the details of it.
    From a standing start the car would rev up normal but once it hit crossover it just jumped right up to the limiter, up through 2nd and near into 3rd on a dry road. I have never heard another B16 sound like this since and was wondering what the hell might of been done to this engine to get it to go like that?

    I'd say the usual of air filter, exhaust, 4 branch mainfold, throttle body, cams etc but i have these on my B16 and it doesn't go like his did.

    I'm thinking that a stand alone ecu must be the key as to get the revs to go like they did.

    Any feedback on this people?

    speedier revs are usually due to a lighter flywheel, and power.

    Thanks for that, had totally forgot about a lighter flywheel.
