    This is what I have now...that red hatch in my avatar was my old hatch. I picked this up for $300. The only thing i did to it so far was put on a high flow car (test pipe) and 2.5 inch piping. The muffler was a $30 ebay special. I started some body work today i wished i saved the old pics of it. well here they are.

    nice car, but why 2.5" piping if you're only gonna run a basic b16?

    Becuase stock CRX is like 1 3/4"... on a B16 bigger exhuast would be beneficial over stock.

    Nice project, it always starts out with a "basic B16"...

    yeah... but, 2.5" is gonna lose all low end torque. cruising at low engine speed, the exhaust will become somewhat stagnant in the pipe, causing a buildup of low velocity exhaust to interfere with the high velocity exhaust coming out when you punch it; hence causing a studder or lag and diminishing throttle response. sure, it'll breathe really good at high rpm, but the throttle response will really suffer at low rpm's. having low velocity, stagnant exhaust in your exhaust system causes backpressure. all i'm saying is 2.5" seems a little big, and i think 2.25" would've been better. actually, i believe i've heard people reccomend 2.25" for h22's on here before. keep in mind, i'm not a mod or a tech, but all i'm saying is that if you plan to cruise around in this car, you will notice these problems..... however, if you're gonna tear through the gears and keep the rpm up every time you drive this car you won't have a problem.

    just my two cents.

    I would say 2.25 is even a little large for a b16. My b16 boggs a bit down low and I think its from the larger piping causing a lack of backpreasure...however, once i hit 6k rpm, I'm gone :D

    I run 2.5".

    Just keep the Revs up..

    And yes they ALL start out at a basic B16 Swap.

    thanks guys for the support. Well i looked at it this way. It will never stay stock and 2.5" is good up until i can afford to boost. then it goes to 3. I will take the small loss in the low end, so i dont have to change the piping 10 times. But thanks for the input guys.

    I want your CRX. Seriously would you sell it. I've always wanted a CRX too and it would be a perfect DD for me.

    I'll give you my prelude and I dunno a couple hundred.

    No matter what it looks like a great project.

    ya know, i thought this wouldn't bother me, [ron white]but i was wrong...[/ron white] lol. everytime i look at this thread i see it again and again.




    i know the "way around that," and i said it in my original post. why do people needlessly repeat shit? it's like a huge gash on your palm, you try not to think about it but you can't.

    p.s.- the project looks good, keep it goin, and keep postin pics.
