    Hey guys, i had a quick question to ask you. I'm new at this so i need some advice. I just bought a 2000 Civic Si coupe and am planning to completely build the engine and thereafter put on a Turbo. I'm looking to pull roughly 500-600 hp at the crank. What motor will be the best option for me?

    You could build up your B16 but really though, are you ready to spend some serious cash in your build? Not to mention upgrading your suspension and brakes. After all, it's not worth it to be able to go fast if you can't stop or if your car can not handle the power.

    Lets look at it this way. What is your budget right now and time frame goal?

    In that case, just to make things easier on yourself, I would suggest dropping it off at the shop of your choice, letting them know what you want, sit back, relax and await the finished product. If you have that kind of money up front that would be one way of going about it. However, if that is not the case, you could go around looking for parts that are specific to your build, save yourself a buck or two, still finish on time and enjoy.

    Well i'm doing this just to enjoy the process of doing it myself. I already did that with my M6, so I kinda want to do this on my own. Any suggestions you can give me would be appreciated.

    it would be a waste of money and time to put another b series in there, when it already has one

    1) buy blown b-series
    2) put it on engine stand
    3) buy aforementioned parts
    4) install parts and engine into car
    5) keep stock motor to install if you have problems with turbo
    6) buy really good brakes
    7) get insurance for it all

    No joke. Why buy things twice, even if your budget will allow? Pull your motor, sleeve it, forge it, boost it. Give it the tune that its worth, and enjoy it.
