So I just bought another Honda even though I didn't need it and it's the 5G with a B18C motor.
Im not sure where to start with it cause until now, all I have messed with were SOHC's. So what Im asking is, where should I start off on building it. Money isn't a big issue and Im not sure I want to take the motor out. It came witha Jackson Racing super charger that Im thinking about using but other than bolting it on, what else would I have to do to see the full effects of the S/C and do you have to tune for it?

So basically Im either planning to sell the super charger and just build the motor or use the super charger and build the motor depending on what is best. I know the super charger's aren't that great but since it came with the car I might as well use it if its worth it.

I'm looking for a decent build that will run with H22's in 5G civic's with bolt on's. So what should I invest in and what kind of gains can I expect from it?

Put the charger on and take it to a honda tuner. Get the ecu chipped and dyno tuned. Your stock engine on like 5 lbs of boost will have more TQ than ya need. You wont need to upgrade the internals.

Other than the SC'er what else will I need? Will I need something like Hondata for the tuning or how does that work? Would about bigger injectors, fuel pump, regulator and so on? Will I need anything like that ?

probably better fuel pump maybe even injectors, make sure u don't run too much boost, it would suck to blow a b18C
