you really should jump to at least 270s, or better yet, 310s, but you can get away with the stock 240s with a big ass fuel pump (Walbro 255)

RE: Best swap for ur HONDA

you can have ac, but working on them is next to impossible. I mean a timing belt on one is a PITA when its in a prelude, let alone a civic. there is almost no room around the motor to do anything to...

RE: Best swap for ur HONDA

I just like the tossability/handling of a lightweight car too much to put that big of a motor into an already front heavy civic.

RE: Best swap for ur HONDA

RE: turbo d16

last post is right, but to answer the original question, vtec engines are usually higher compression, so turboing them is trickier, but its pretty well figured out by now, and if you research it and...

RE: Rotor removal

maybe drop $20 and get a set of those Grabit things. they advertise them on tv, but ive seen them in hardware stores too. they seem like they would work better than most easy outs.

RE: Question on tire sizes?

they would be an improvement. they are a little wider across the tread, and about the same sidewall.

RE: Engine options...

RE: exhaust choices

the Skunk2 is pretty loud, and the Greddy Evo is pretty quiet. I personally love the sound of Evo, especially with an open element intake.

RE: B16A2 w/ ITR cams - what gains will an aftermarket header/IM give?

its tough to beat a b16 manifold. I would get the stock one ported/polished, preferably Extrude Honed, and then get a really good header, Comptech if smog is a concern, or Hytech or Bisimoto if you...
