Default Best Engine For F.I.

I'm sure this question has been gone over but I didnt find any search results...

Best engine or set-up for F.I. ?? I heard something about a b20 block and b16b head or something? Than theres another B engine with low comp that people love for boost. Anyway, your info is appreciated.

The best stock engine for FI is goin to be the one with the lowest compression..........all honda engines are great for boost considering a good tune/forged internals or both.

a built one...


As far as stock motors, the one that tends to make the most power is the LS block with a b16 head. But from what I hear, it's an absolute bitch to tune correctly

you're gonna have to reinforce just about any engine you use with a turbo unless it has low boost.

use the b-series and save some dough...

Depends on your power goal. If you need more than 500, B18C1 or H22 is best imo. Anything below that I'd use a D.

from what i here if u going with a obd1 ecu wich ive learned is the best to mod the b18a1 wich is the ls engine or the zc engine are the 2 best for turbo bc of the compression also the h23a wich is the honda prelude si engine. also i have heard is better to turbo a non v tech engine for what ever reason im not sure but that just what ive heard these are all non v tech engines and all low compression so they are good ones to use.
hope i could help

That would be nuts... for that much power do you have any idea of a $$$ amount for that kind of build?
