Default what about torque?

now i'm lookin at doing a mini me swap as well as the i/h/e, an s2 manny and tb, new cam/gears. any hypothesis of how much torque i could get? i dont want so much to break anything but i also want enough to kick *** at the track. if there are any sites that go over this or if anyone can break it down for me i'd appreciate it. thanks

what bottom end and what head? nvm just saw your other thread. id say it may be possible for you to break into the low 100ftlb range.

im not too sure on the hp gains for the other parts, but somewhere on the site they have a dyno that shows i/h/e only gained about 12hp..and thats for name brand parts as well. building an N/A d series is not the way 2 go imo

^^^ on stock D parts you can get a mind-****ing compression ratio of 17.4:1...thats all stock stuff and if you get a honda-certified mechanic to do it you will still be under warrenty. dont knock the D.

that's nice and all, but its still not the way to go if you want to increase your HP and Torque by any considerable amounts.
