    I am having a serious dilemna right now. first, here is what i plan to build: B16A, Re-sleeved, Je Pistons 8.5:1, Crower Billet rods, Crower valvetrain, Crower turbo app. cams, Gsr Tranny, Possible pnp job on head. What turbo would be best for me? Btw, don't know if this makes a diff, but i have a '97 Civic DX coupe. Plan on buying aem ems shortly after, once funds have regenerated. Now, what company/turbo size should i go with? It's gonna be a drag car, so i guess nothing too monstrous...maybe t3/to4e hybrid? What would be the best components for me to use in my turbo kit? Also, what would be a good way for me to learn how to REALLY drive to prepare me for this beast of a motor? i am a pretty inexperienced race car driver. All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.


    ::edit:: What kind of fuel upgrade should i do? companies...products...fuel pump? injectors? etc.

    well, for a drag car, its far from my first choice... but anyway... you already have it so...

    if you want to learn how to drive- go to a REAL go kart track.
    if you want to learn how to drag.... practice not doing burnouts :)

    as for fuel, injector sizing depnds on how big you go... check out http://www.rceng.com 's tech section
    walboro 255 hp pump is fine

    well..what i have is just the bare bottom end i bought off a friend for $200. Can easily be replaced if i feel it'd be in my best interest. Whatcha think would be best for my set-up? H22?

    might not be a bad idea...how hard is it to find a bare GSR bottom end? I don't want to pay for stuff i don't need. I will be fully building motor anyways, so all internals would be useless. A few ppl have told me to go with the GSR, but getting the b16 was much more convenient at the time.
