Default b20b with acura ls transmission- advice

i am currently putting a b20 into my 89' civic dx hatch.

Using the build to mostly be all motor based around high torque and around 300 to 400hp with close to 600lbs torque

LOL.. there is no way in hell you will see that amount of torque, or hp without a turbo. Just not possible with a Honda motor.

For that much power and toque, you better be sleeving the motor and running ALOT of boost. If you are sleeving a B20, you might as well find a B18b1 motor and use that for sleeving since they are easier to find and the blocks are the same, just the B20 is bored out to 2.0L (up from the 1.8L).

i am planning on machining the motor and boring it out and adding new pistons and then working on the crank, along with new rods, intake new ecu, new intake manifold, and much more

Ok... and? Like I said, there is no way you will make those numbers on a non-boosted B20 motor.

you dont think it is possible with a little transmission gear renumbering and ecu reprogramming and massive amounts of interenal motor upgrades?

Default b20b build

i have scoped out a few internals for my b series. i am currently trying to reach a goal of close to 800 torque. I am willing to put turbo's but no vtech head. Need some support from people who are aware of what i might need.

Sleeves, a monster turbo set-up, a huge IM, and that's about all I can think of. I have never seen 800 wtq from a Honda which has not been worked to death.
