    I give you props for going SOHC, I don't know why people initially knock the Sohc's :)

    If you went all motor that would be even nastier!!!!! good luck

    swap in a F22 but it sounds like you want to keep your 1.6/1.5 Socher

    stay with the SOHC! Many people dont think they can be fast but they can. Plus when U do beat someone it makes them look worse cause its a SOHC. I have a D16z6 and it does low 15's with just exhaust and intake! Just make the car light and it will be fast! Reamember its HP:lbs not just Horsepower!!!! Plus I think there is a little place for us all motor tuners out there :D

    Bisi runs mid 10's in a SOHC,but I doubt you will.Point is,if properly motivated and finianced you can achieve almost anything with whatever motor you start with.

    not to mention the trannys suck, the heads dont flow nearly as well, the option of LSD is not availble (unless one came out recently for d-blocks) and all said an done, the amount of money it will take you to go 14s in a single cam all motor would equal a gsr swap

    my friend had a civic couple exhaust greddy turbo kit and a fuel pump 14.0 on 17" wheels and tires.

    not a fan of greddy kits at all but the car was a fun beat the piss out of car. untill someone stole it. i bet they were pissed it wasnt a twin cam when they poped the hood.
