Well i left out the civic type r which before when we had the ex civic making like 126hp it was doing 185 so we've been screwed on that and the latest type r civic is even faster. If you had any non-si civic here then a swap is well worth it especiall if youre getting an integra motor...ls/vtec....drool. Getting that extra 20hp outta the b18c5 woulda been nice and civichatch+svtf is 100% right for the most part youre only gonna get a 13second outta any modified all motor honda with drastic measures so much so itd make anyone wonder why you didnt buy a turbo, save for the crx and some hatches due to their low low weight, i had a mostly gutted 90 dx crx with b16 all internals and that was definitely cheaper than FI, too bad i never found out what it could runi dont even know about 13's though, but to that automatic z28 i took, im sure hed say 12's

neojen you left off at 3rd? weak.. he would be hitting a nice little gift of power around that time if he was telling the truth about the car.. oh well he was running his mouth, why give away your great motor under the hood when most ppl wouldnt expect it.. if I had a SiR B16A in my CRX, I wouldnt tell folks until later.. after they were shocked.. haha..

lol... ya, that is pretty amusing. "Smile and nod and they wont attack" The only setup that would do a 13 sec pass would be a completely gutted EG hatch or a CRX with a jdm H22 motor (or the new K20 i believe).

there is such a thing as a jdm b16, jdm= japanese domestic market, cars that we had here that suck werent at all the same in japan examples, the type r in japan had 220(200 here),crx had 160(109 here), prelude had 220(200 here) and even when we had del sols with 160hp b16's the b161 g2 in jdm spec was 170hp.

Now nobody here is probably a bigger jdm guy than myself when i had my crx i was all about jdm, i.e I learned to drive with only kmp/h because my speedo didnt even read out in mph... i was too jdm for that! damn thats lame This guy might be bsing or he might not be good at driving if we believe hes got a jdm b16 in a civic hatch hed prolly have the 170hp because putting an SiR I into a civic hatch would be a ridiculous amount of work with OBD so hed had the 2nd gen with 170 hp and i believe 116 or 118 lbs of tq and almost undoubtedle hed have some other stuff because you cant use a stock exhaust or intake etc. adn with that weight on a civic hatch(im guessing its like a cx or dx) if he could drive he should be able to pull at the very least a 15flat

SVTJerbo I agree if this guy really had a b16 but messed up a launch he shoulda pulled hard in 3rd/4th but as for why i now own american after japanese, am i not allowed to? doesnt seem like big deal to me, not that im against american cars but its my money and i spend it how i see fit, and after having a total project car that was all aftermarket, it was wrecked, i couldnt afford to start another, nor did i have desire to start having to deal with all the little problems that inevitably come from project cars when it wasnt and still isnt a luxury i can afford, i.e space or money for a 2nd vehicle

frogg5872 if you didnt even give one another a chance to pull in third then i cant agree you won. He may have had a bad takeoff and when you hit third and slowed down he probably was getting ready to do some damage....or not. dunno

03FOCUZ c if he did have the B16then he would of maybe cought up if those japanneessee motors would have moore torque but most of them dont ,except the ls or ls V.cuz my freind has an LS V,on his 95 integra man that shit just take off!but with a liitlle work i will come up on top!jerbo y did u end up getting an american car if u had a japaneese car?
