B18C, B16A2 head, Type R exhaust cam, sleeve the hell out of it, full internals, tons of head work, get it balanced, blueprinted, and tuned, and you should hit 500 whp no problem. Or just buy a Spoon crate motor...

I know both are going to be very expensive but my engine is getting a little worn out at the track times areslipping a little bit. This week I coundn't hit 2nd gear 3 out of 4 runs I made last night. The run I did hit second I ran a 17.598.... Its still ****ty but I havent been at the track in about 3 weeks. I will have pics of the car on here probly tomorrow out at the lake along with the rest of my crew. We are also looking for anybody who is interrested into joining let me know. If the civic doesn't go the way I want it to go I might get a 02 sentra SER Spec-V... I'm still debating right now...

I have a few new parts on the way........
Energy Suspesion Shifter mounts, Ac Autoworks Shifter and {a momo italy shift **** from my team Captain.}
And also Shift and brake boots. Blue Leather with Black stiching
