I stroked my B18... all I got was dirt on my hand.

But on a more serious note, I'd say take that money and save for a turbo kit. You've got a damn fine stock FI motor there.

its really not worth the money IMO. you can get as much or more power out of it with a turbo, or if youre gonna stroke it, just go all out and do a full sleeved and forged build.

Yeah. If you're going to build it, build it all the way.

Well, if your going to go all motor, then do it up right like they said above. Sleeved, forged, PnP...etc.

well see...i dont plan on keeping my civcic a street car. i want to do all the modding in the summer after i graduate highschool...or perhaps over that year (i dont plan on going to college right away). but i would really like to get a b18c1, stroke it (crower with AEBS sleeves), low compression pistons, then do a bunch of head work and turbo it. but thats not for a few years yet. have to save for it in the meantime (i almost have enough for the swap).
