Mid 13's is not easy with a all motor b16. Hope you are going to gut your car. Also 4.5-5.0 60 ft should put you in the 12's easy.

ok....thanks man....I was just wondering....I'm goin for mid 13's all motor and about 4.5 to 5.0 for 0-60 time..I was wondering what stock was......I think thats pretty reasonable right??
good block going that far. As far as I'm concern, got o 13s, you have to take hte engine apart, and built it form the ground up, and fine tune it. and makes your car weight less than 2000lbs.

Sure you would be close but why waste all that money on useless stuff?

Why buy a Toda Stroker kit when you can just swap out the b16 block for a b18b,b18c, or b20?

A nicely built b16 head on a high compression b18 block should get you very low 14's if not in the 13's.

I defenitely agree a motor swap would be best but I would rather keep the b16 for some reason.....if I had enough money, I would put a b18c5 in there and that would be awesome but I absolutely love the b16 for some reason....it just sucks that it lacks torque..

With the money you would be spending on the stroker kit and cams you could easily have a b18c5. :rolleyes

I'm my opinion, a B16a is only capable of so much. After adding the stroker kit and cams you've invested quite a chunk of change into a motor that can't really co any farther. If I were you, I'd sell the B16a, build a B20 or something close to that, and then youd have the torque you were looking for, plus still have money in the bank for alot of other upgrades.

if you have to have a stroker kit, buy a b18 and stroke that bitch, stroke it up to 2.0 or just buy a b20 block and do the b20/vtec. Its more afforable than a b18c5 and youll have more tourqe than any stock b series motor. for about thew price of swapping a b18c5 into my car ive got an ls/vtec build and im putting out WAY MORE power and torque. I run down the two type r's that are around here easily....

? It's do-able.
you know to even do that you have to make your civic a fully race car. as if the stock interior weren;t sorry enough, modifying to reduce weight make less toleratble for a daily driver.

The best I;'ve seen are RSX with full motor swap, camms change, and a bunch of shit done to drivetrain that run 13s with full interior, but he also mention is not his daily driver anymore.
