First off i hope u have some deep pockets if u plan on eventually running 350-400 horses. A swap, full turbo set-up, beefy internals and LOTS of tuning will get pricey. There is a member on here, 96civic286whp, who has acheived a nice number (286whp) with a B18C1. I'm pretty sure (correct me if i am wrong) this engine will fit in ur car fairly easilyand will put out 170hp. With that much horsepower (350-400hp) daily driving is not going to be that fun unless you drive on interstate highways all day. i not trying to be a d*** just letting u know what ur getting into. good luck and post some pics!!

dont go with a turbo kit. Make up your own w/ miscellaneous parts and you still make as much power while spending less money. Check out the DIY theres a post in there about it all.

b18c1. it will drop right in and takes to mods better than any pre-K honda engine.
