they also had a d16z6 that I'm still considering pickin up instead of a b18. plan on doin a non vtec, moderate boost build so all I really need is a block and head since it's gonna have all aftermarket internals to handle the boost

d16z6 is vtec

yea my bad forgot to put the part in about if I do the b18 I won't do a vtec motor. I realize the d16z6 is a vtec motor. I just don't know which one to go with.

IMO civics and all other cars of that class have had their names ruined by retard kids who spend 500 on a car and "upgrade" everything to make them look like 200 dollar cars, which is horrible because there are some that are amazing. but it makes yours look better :)

sell it and buy diesel lol... jk what are you gunna do with your car?

I kinda agree with you. Only reason I bought mine is bc I wanted to see what I could learn from building one up, already rebuilt the motor in my fox body but it'd cost too **** much to fix the exterior and I really want a car to take to the track so when I found a 93 civ for a grand I bought it. well that and I'm tryin to sell my bike and I've gotta have a project to work on so this seemed like a good idea

**** only reason I got mine so cheap is bc my buddys wife is makin him get rid of it and he'd rather sell it cheap to a friend and see it done right than sell it to an idiot. even tho its gonna be mainly a "track" car it's still gonna have a small system in it. got a friend who does fiberglass work and we are gonna try fiberglassing an sa10 into the spare tire well

Turbo'd ive saw d-series do 800+ but that serious... 400 is easy to hit.. All motor d-series 160+ to the wheels is doing good lol, GSR's b18's will do 350 pretty easy on stock internals.. non vtec b18's not my thing i know jack **** lol.

well I'm lookin to build the motor capable of doin 11-12 sec runs. suspension I've already got figured out so that's not an issue. So are you sayin I'd be better off with the d16z6?

nice thats what i got :), yeh umm z6 pushing 400 horse, as long as you should drive, should hit your goals..

lowriderram_95
02-04-2011, 02:47 AM
well then I guess I'm goin back to the junkyard tomorrow and rippin out that z6. should I get the tranny with it also?

it'd be nice not doin a typical dohc swap, several of the local racers have b16 and 18 swaps and I like to do things a little differently than everyone else

since you have one do you know of any way to lengthen the seat brackets? I'm 6' 2" and it's a lil snug for me

02-04-2011, 02:52 AM
I would, i ran my ex tranny with boost, nothing serious stock internals probally making like 160-170 but it was fine, you will see dumb ***'s telling you to run like a dx or cx trans for long gearing because its best with boost.. but my standpoint is : The ex trans is the shortest geared d-series trans, and it still has longer gears than any B-series trans.. B-series guys are fine with there short geared trans.. See what im saying lol..
