    i have plans to do a swap ... look for your input on which to get?

    this is my plans:

    http://www.hondaswap.com/forums/index.php?...t=ST&f=7&t=9502

    itll be an EK hatch, and will be upgrading with turbo at the same time ....

    so far, my ideas are (in order):

    1. B18C1
    2. B16A2 (from 99-00 Si)
    3. B20/VTEC conversion

    what do you think i should do? or any other ideas?

    wtf? its only 2, and its not the same topic...this is about specifically the engine swap itself, while the other is a more general question dealing with more than just the engine swap ... at least i aint stupid to post about something in a forum thats doesnt have to do with the topic on hand


    so:

    if you want 1/4 go woth a h22
    more torque
    and solid deck handles power alot easier

    i was told to think about that also ... but i heard that the weight issues become a small problem .. (like, the front end gets really heavy, handling is lost somewhat, and have to beef the front suspension) .... and there isnt as much engine space left when the H22 is done?

    im not all about 1/4, just a mix of them all, 1/4, top speed, auto-x ....

    -if you're planning on auto-x, drag, turbo...you better stick to getting the GSR swap.

    -the B20/Vtec may be ok also but I don't know how well that hybrid is going to handle the f/i. any one else have any thoughts about this.

    -if you're going to auto-x you may not want to go turbo.

    ive read about someone doing the B20/VTEC turbo..with some other upgrades, he pushing 350HP at wheels at 12PSI ... read it in SCC a long time ago ..... but then again, he prob did alot of things .....

    im more sticking toward the B18C1 .... if i werent gonna turbo, then id stick with a B18C5 and do a NA setup ... but id rather go turbo .... auto-x isnt a big thing, so im not gonna let that make my decision ...

    but im thinking that the B18C has more potential for power and a little more stronger than the B16A2 from the 99-00 Si (i think its the B16A2) ?
     
  8. Go with the B18C/LSD tranny, I pretty confident you'll find some autoX quality, and will be good for drag. For this kinda setup, you won't need a huge turbo, though it'll lag your speed alot. get some good suspension and steering components as well as stops. you surely need some tires though....good luck

    IMO, I think SoCal has the best shops. You always read about the featured cars in the magazines going to the shops out here. :D
