    easiest = 5th gen civic
    lightest = 1st gen crx

    honestly dont even bother with a B18C5
    get a B16 head and tranny
    have the head ported and polished
    put some big ass cams in it
    upgrade the valvetrain
    put a good LSD in the B16 tranny
    maybe an ATS 4.9FD

    then get a B20 block
    or better yet get a cheap B18B block and have it bored and sleeved... go with some stupidly high compression pistons to compliment the big ass cams
    have the crank lightened
    have the whole rotating assembly ballanced

    or go balls out crazy and get a DART block, and go from there

    the B18C5 is a great engine (i have one) but for drag racing you have FAR better choices out there

    you're missing the point.

    you're going to end up boring it, sleeving it, re-doing the whole head... why bother? just buy the cheap shit to do all that too and end up with the same result

    Obviously "The best" is a subjective term. Best being easiest, best being lightest, best being, cost effective, what? You've already been given the lightest and easiest, cheapest is up to you.

    waste of money
    waste of a perfectly good engine designed for road course racing

    A b1c5 is not going to get you very far in a drag car....a nice street setup/auto-X yes. If you want to be competetive at any level, a stock c5 is a waste...what everyone is trying to say is go a different route with the engine setup. As far as a chassis...EG (92-95) will be the easiest to bolt in. an EF (88-91) will be the lightest and I would just plain stay away from the 1st gen's, too much work for the outcome.

    Here:

    SELL YOUR B18C5 FOR LOTS OF CASH TO SOME IDIOT AND USE THAT MONEY TO BUILD A NICE 2.0L LS/VTEC SETUP. SWAP INTO '92-'95 CIVIC HATCHBACK FOR EASE OR '88-'91 CIVIC OR CRX FOR THE LIGHTEST CHASSIS.

    Jesus fucking Christ. Use the damn reference section, man.

    Yeah, and I'm Saddam Husseins long lost white brother. 230HP my A-Hole!!!

    C'mon dude, ditch the type r motor and build the shit out of a gsr motor or go the 2.0 route if your gonna do nothing but drag. And in my opinion use an EG6 chassis for drag as well.

    Sell the b18c5. Buy a H22. and a 1988 CRX HF. Gut it. Gut the hell out of it. buy a fat ass turbo and some good slicks. Bring to a simmer. Add a dash of VTEC sauce.. You will have a master piece.

    And with the left over money from the sale of your c5 you could buy a nice little condo on the beach and retire. Life's good.

    I say go for the "b18c5 Witch Car" dude. They're not only fast, but have dark magical powers. And they run on swamp gas and kittens, which are cheaper than gasoline. Although "Built Drag N/A with engine" is an honorable second choice.
