    Spoon is a Japneese tuning co. They make really good, REALLY expensive, wastes of money. :p Go with the B16.

    All their products make power and are of high quality, Spoon is a great tuner, but I will be honest, they are way way overpriced!!!

    spoon is great, at what they do. They make high HP NA engines for the purpose of endurence (sp??) racing. But that's what there into. So if your buddy tells you he's got a spoon engine with a T-66 turbo, slap him several times!!! :bash:

    Besides, we all know SRDET20 engines are much better suited for civics anyway!!!!

    :) :D :lol:

    spoon B-series engines have: (besides being brand new from the factory)

    - 70mm spoon throttle body
    - spoon billet aluminum cam gears
    - CTR rods
    - ITR pistons
    - spoon 2-pc. headgasket (to raise compression)
    - spoon plug wires (very similar to nology hotwires, but cost about $400)
    - spoon oil cap and valve cover
    - and a set of these ultra high performance Spoon Sporks! :D

    They also have a few other special things to them like a spoon oil pan, TAD more aggressive cams and a few other things.

    Spoon is like a step up from TYPE R. They have OEM quality. They will not be the most aggressive engines but they will last you just as long as a ITR block. You cant say that with many other companies out there.

    Yeah, you could build a better motor for half the price, but they (spoon) built it for you, plus their engineering and R+D goes into endurance racing and their parts are mostly built for midrange use on the powerband. These aren't drag cars that they build or motors. I will agree once again, and this is why I don't buy a lot of their shit, is because in the 1/4 i got for bang for the buck, simple as that.
