I am thinking on getting a 1991 honda crx with a H22 turbo

Now how big a box do you guys think I can fit in there?

drop in a B18 motor...and turbo it ;)


its a small/light car...and great for SPL setups

Also the h22 will be pro built with the best of everything.

Just wondering if anyone knows how big of a box I can fit in there.

I was hoping I can fit like 2x 15" btl or mt's

Cause I can lol.

No cause the box and that will only weigh 250 pounds tops with all the equipment in so that really is only good for a few tenths in the 1/4 and It will be my daily car also.

So low 11's with all my stereo in it and not that hard on gas and still whip alot of cars.
I dont see the problem there.

Explain please.

What is so wrong with it? I just dont understand the problem.

The car is only going to be 0.4 seconds slower in the 1/4 with all the stereo in there.

It still will be fast as hell for a daily driver.

If you say so bud. Just do it, I know I would never do it.................again I had over 300 pounds of stereo equipment in my Protege5 and it slowed it down pretty good. I was running low 15's in the quarter and when I put in the system I ran it again for shits and giggles and ran high 15's almost 16 secs. Lost almost 1 sec on it. So that was more than a few 10ths of a second. Just food for thought.

300 pounds will not slow your car down a full second in the 1/4. maby 1/2 a second and I drag race alot so I know what I am talking about. I do it every second weekend.

Correct I dont really care if it runs 1/2 a second slower in the 1/4 mile cause it is not my drag car. I have a car that runs mid 10's already.

Also as said above the 300 pounds i will loose almost 1 second it the 1/4 then can you explain to me this.

1988 mustang coupe vs 1988 mustang hatch

the hatch is a few hundred pounds heaver then the coupe but is there time difference in the 1/4 almost a second NO. A few 10ths at most.

The difference in weight between the 2 is 302 pounds

Ok I am lieing to you.:rolleyes:

I used to race every weekend as well. I had a cavalier on NOS that did low 13's and my dads 77 Cutlass ran low 10's on slicks with a 351 Cleveland in it. I have been racing most of my life and know that 300 pounds will slow your car down almost a second. I know my proof, so................... Also dont care if it is your daily driver, sounds like money being wasted, but is your money, so go for it.

I think that would be sick. Who cares about what it can do on the track if its only your daily. It will be fast enough when you want it to be, and it will be loud too.

For a daily driver: Very loud system > loosing a little bit in the 1/4. IMO.

here is how he can test it, Take your car and run it without the equipment 3 times. Then put the audio gear in and run it 3 more times. Compare your times and show us you lost only a 1/2 second. Also the size and weight of the car will help determine how much is taken off. A crx is light so adding 300 pounds would be like adding 600 pounds in a car twice as heavy.

No it would not.

Weight to hp ratio is all that would change does not matter because the car was light before hand.

Thats true as well. Unfortuantly I dont have that car anymore, so I cant test it. I have pics on here with the wall and everthing in it. Thing is it was never that fast, I mean low 15's on just 2.0 with intake and exhasut is pretty good, but I ruined it when I put in the wall.

So your saying that the weight shifting from the front to the back lifting the front of your very light automobile is not going to change your aerodynamics thus hurting your 1/4 mile more than 1/2 a second.

what he is saying is 100% right 100lbs is equal to 1/10 of a second down the 1/4 mile. the reason im sure you saw such a drop in performance was most likely due to the strains from the electrical aspect. also in some instances it can actually help the speed because it will distribute the cars weight better. getting better traction to all the wheels rather then just the front.

Listen all you guys my whole point on getting this car is to make it as loud as i can.

Second goal with it is to make it go as fast as I can daily with my STEREO in there.
Again THIS IS NOT MY DRAG CAR!

If you guys dont like a fast car with a STEREO please keep you comments to yourself.

Now my only question was how big of a box have people put in there crx and then I got alot of *****ing and cryin
I will post time slips with and with out the stereo to prove it will not loose 1 second in the 1/4 until then......

Thank you. now please get back on topic

oh wow man i would love that not even to prove a point but to race. i actually been going there quite a bit lately. i will gladly do a run then take out my box and do another run to show time lose. or just have you sit in the car, then go down it without you in the car.

Last time I checked anycar can go and pay 10 bucks to race down the track just for something to do. I have had many cars that do good numbers. My dads car was in the low 10's on slicks and I have ran that many times. So what is your point just becuase I wanted to see what my car would do?

I will have no more the 3 grand in the motor and installed.
5 grand total on car with swap.

My best friend owns a speed shop so I get all the parts for cost and already have the price lists.

Parts are

Full turbo kit, intercooler, pipein, boost controller ect...
JE pistions
Eagle rods
Fordged crank
All new bearings
Injectors
Mounts, Wireing, axles ect...
Skunk cams
Adjustable cam gears
Full msd ignition
the list would go on

All the machine work on the block will be done at a local engine shop after hours.
Friends dad owns it.

So for 5 grand I got a car that will cruse along nice and get loud as *****.

Last time I checked anycar can go and pay 10 bucks to race down the track just for something to do. I have had many cars that do good numbers. My dads car was in the low 10's on slicks and I have ran that many times. So what is your point just becuase I wanted to see what my car would do? You must be one of those rednecks that sits in back of the trucks looking at guys asses well we the people with money can do what we will.

one, i'm not a redneck, i lived in the city and now the suburbs and i probly have all of 2 friends witha truck. two, your dads car actually belongs there because thats actually quick. third, yes i'm aware that any car Can go there, pay the money and run... and this is what often causes pointless races, for example, idra battle of the imports last fall a couple scions running 17's, waste of time. another example, a 15sec on a good day car with an intake and exhaust which equated to all of about 10hp running 15's, waste of time. your dads car running 10's that actually moves out, took actual work, takes an actual driver... not a waste of time. your track is probably worse if its only 10 bucks, at least here it costs more so it starts to limit the competitor to those who actually race their vehicles.

A lot of it comes down to something you dont seem to be able to grasp. Making friends and having a good time. So what if they are in the 16's, 17's. Its about having fun and just taking some time out of your work week and doing what you want to do. Maybe its 10 bucks because the people that own it like people to have a good time at there track. They also have serious nights where the big boys come out and they charge a good amount to get in. So...............yeah!

oookey dokey well if you're having fun with it then i guess i'll leave you alone about it, i had a car that was a 15 second car (err 14.9 according to motor trend, yay) and i didnt think it was at all fun to race it but i guess thats me. our local track on test n tune days is 15 admission and 25 for a run card, and the track doesnt really cater to the little guys. i dunno, i guess i feel like i need to be at the track only if i actually am testing and tuning with the equipment i have.

I posted that I have been racing most of my life, rather it was taking my dads cars down the track or helping tunning, testing his cars to my cars. Fastest car had was my cavalier with NOS in it doing low 13's. That was fun to me. Always loved taking out older suped up cars with that. Anyway, its just about the fun. My dad is more the serious one and when I race his car I get very serious.
