    DC sports vs. ITR

    Dang. The only article i have seen directly comparing the two said that there was no difference in top end, and added that the 4-2-1 design increased the scavenging effect thereforte boosting power across the powerband until the 4-1 headers caught up at the top. Oh, it was a domestic magazine...

    Grenading a B18

    A GSR motor is what i intend to use. A friend told me that the motors that come with vtec heads are built to withstand the rigors of high RPM usage. He says that you have to put money in the head (valve springs and such) to support high rpms. I want to port the head and eventually put in...

    Grenading a B18

    How fast can you spin a stock B18 before the thing chunks? Is a 75 shot relatively safe? I don't want to be breaking shit. help me out.

    DC sports vs. ITR

    Go with a 4-2-1 design. people say that they hurt topend but it is bull. While there is nothing wrong with the 4-1 design, why not do somthing to build a little low and midrange power? Theres more to life than top end.

    What to put into an '88 Prelude 2.0 SI?

    my ex's dad built the hell out of one of those engines to give to his son, i think it is in an older car though. He had it put on a dyno for break in, and to see what it could do before he put it into the car. At the time i hated imports, and i was suprised to see this kind of numbers...

    i know the system a little too well, and as long as it is maintained by the seller that the engine is of legal origin, i will be legally safe.

    first steps to handling

    ok, from a base model car, what should be my first steps into turning a street bound civic hatch into a corner carving demon that feels like its on rails?

    h22 turbo?

    I've heard that h23 non vtec motors take better to boost. Wouldn't vtec be undesirable for a turbo setup? i mean the bigger lobes might put the powerband too high with the forced induction, but i am just guessing, based on what i have experienced boosting V8's.

    oops, the car i am selling will net me about 4g, and i don't have a car. I am looking at high milage cars and cars with bad tranny or engines. I have found several under 2 grand, and i have only looked ONCE, so i am confident that i will eventually find one for the DIRT! I plan on a 92...

    Reality bites.

    ok, i have heard a lot of claims about how much a swap costs. I will probably not do it myself. Even though i have done swaps before,(91 Camaro RS and 66 Oldsmobile starfire) i have no experience with imports. I have a friend that can get a deal on a GSR motor for 750$ what other things...

    Heads....

    ok, the way this project is starting to shape up is as follows. I plan on selling my 1972 cutlass S which i have driven since i was 17. I have ported heads, big cam, headers, custom exhaust, with a 3.42 posi (LSD) rear end. It has less than 75000 original miles, and i am yet to lose a race...
