Default Want to build up my b18a1

I have a b18a1 out of a 1990 gs acura integra. It is currently in my 1990 honda civic hatch. I want to know what i should do because i want to be able to run low to high 11's on my car. I want to purchase everything little by little then ill pull the motor back out and do it. ohh and i want to turbo it no n/a. Can people shoot me some comments and help me out.

Okay you'll get into a long debate in here about whether to sleeve or not on a B18. Trust me I'm building one also (B18A1 92 Acura LS) and we had a long talk about it. SO here's the way I looked at it. If you want to save money now, don't sleeve the block. I've heard of LS engines going for years with the right tune, driver, and amount of boost. Want to be safenowand be able to crank the boost up latter on if you want to? Sleeve the block. No next you can use the stock crank or an Eagle billet one...your choise. Agian it depends on if you maywant to grank up the boost latter on. Now here some stuff you will have to have and my persanal preferance.
Steel oil pan- Moroso
Forged Pistion Rods- Eagle
Forged Pistions- JE
Valve Springs and Retainers - Crane Cams
Cams - Crane Cams
Head studs and bolts - ARP
That's all you HAVEto have. Like I said before, depending on exacally whatyou wantwill determine how much money you dump into it. If you want you can PM me and I'll tell you more about my build.
