    I am new to the import car scene and I am about to buy a 92 Civic Si-R....It already has a DOHC VTEC engine in it.........I was wondering what would be the absloute best motor that I can put in it and money is no abject.



    Thanks,

    What motor is in it now? The best is just your own opinion. But H22 is the most powerful.

    Best stock motor would probably be B20Vtec. Best motor would be a B1c5 Type R with sleeved bottom end, forged internals, and ported head with all the stronger internalss.

    He said whats the best motor, of course I could build a better motor, but H22 is the best motor platform, you can't argue. The best built motor would be CRVTEC/T with a Type R head. And there is no B20VTEC stock motor, it's a hybrid motor.

    I must agree with some of the guys and say the B18C1 is probably the best stock motor for all around performance to throw in there but you are restricted a little. What I mean is that the R-spec motors are already pretty well designed and put together and you probably won't be able to get too much more out of it.
    However, I believe the biggest bang for the buck is the H22 but there is a small weight issue(a cf hood and battery relocation should fix), and you have to beef up your suspension a bit. Still worth getting but don't expect to be Michael Andretti with an H22.

    -Why are you trying to swap out the engine??? You already have a Dual cam Vtec motor, save the money you will spend on a new motor and just build on it or slap a turbo on it.

    Same thing I was thinking. Just build up your existing engine. If you want to stay NA but still want trq. buy a ITR bottom end on that head. You already have a sweet engine and there is no reason to swap it out.
