    Hi

    The cheapest way would be to go turbo.

    This is such a cop-out answer, and I have been seeing it here a lot. Screw turboing a honda motor. That is right I am saying it now, they are amazing N/A motors, so why not use them for what they are intended for. If the ask about a turbo or post about boosting there motors respond to that. If they are asking about a head swap respond to that and help them out, answer the questions at hand. Now with that out of the way, you should read the FAQ section of this web site as there is a good articles about both of your questions. You can get in the 13s on an LS VTEC for about the same price as a good turbo set up. Of course that is with a b16 head which is pretty much the same thing as an ITR head. It is all about how you build it. Read these FAQ articles, and figure out what you are looking at doing. A type R head is quite pricey, but it creates a great building block.

    As far as how fast will you go with the above set, up take it to the track once you build it, it really all depends on your driving ability. There is no way for us to guage that.

    Yeah ok, he is new just got his car. Now lets see him build a LS/Vtec. I went NA now I am adding up all the money I spent. I figure I could have put together a turbo for much cheaper and less expensive. I am not saying go out and buy a new turbo for 3Gs. If you shop around you can get more ponies for less money by turboing. I am going NA this year but will probably put together a turbo for next. You will need more than just a B16 head to do 13s. But hey if you want to go all motor thats cool. Just save your money and shop around. Good luck.

    the reason i wanna go all motor is because i already had a turbo car a 97 eclipse gsx, im planning on getting another dsm next year but for right now i wanna go all motor on the integra.
    my cousin was offering me a ITR engine for $3k but i doubt i will buy it.

    3K for a good running ITR is a good deal. Especially if that is with a tranny.

    IF you do want to go all motor though. Maasey Racer is right LS/Vtec would be the cheapest way to go. Build up a Vtec, have it PnP. Well tuned you might get high 13s.

    Have to make improvements elsewhere besides the motor too like wheels and tires, suspension, LSD, and losing some weight.
