damn, can I get the hook up?...I've been looking for someone to help me out with a rwd conversion on my sol...there's someone here in my town who has a shop that said they could do it...but he said it would run me damn near 20g's...does that sound about right?...hobie237 said:i've only seen porsche successfully do rear engine/RWD... and i <3 my porsche, but i would like to stick to front engine with a new trans/ drive... we did it on an MX-6... converted to AWD and its SICK
Warped Sol said:If you going to use the Vortech kit that was for the 99-00 Civic Si, it's not going to work. There some significant fitment issues, unless you can do work arounds.
Did they finally come out with a B18 unit? Last I saw was a unit for the B16 and S2000 motor. That would be cool if they did.

ok.. explane ( but in detai's ) for rookies(like me)gurusan said:Why a Vortech?
With that you get the slow spool time of a turbo AND the drag of a belt driven turbine??
Worst of both worlds.....!
OK , YOU ARE MY GUY)gurusan said:I don't really know too much about the procharger.
I'm not really a supercharger guy......I'm all about the turbo
Umm if you want to rev to 10k-11k that's going to take a lot of work...and you're not going to be doing that with turbo.N I T R O said:OK , YOU ARE MY GUY)
I whant strenght on high rpm's but talking about 10000-11000 rpms)
and hope to get 300-320 hp on wheel's
posible or not posible?
references? what to buy? price?new or used (that is the question bro)

And on a stock ITR block I'd say 300 whp would be pushing it, and i hope you know a good tuner. 10.8:1 C/R is kinda high for boosting a bunch.
And I suggest you do a lot of reading first....if you have the funds here's an awesome kit. http://www.turboneticsinc.com/tsystems.html
It has a ball bearing turbo so it spools quick and it should get you to 300 whp with proper tuning.
I wouldn't go over 300 whp without a thicker headgasket, ARP head studs, forged rods and pistons though
Mounting points for the driver's side B16 bracket won't match the B18.yes they did! but why it whant to fit?
basicly it's the same motors( by the look)
Not trying to start flame war or the old "my forced induction is better than yours" debate, but need to point up some factoids.As for As for the Vortech Supercharger....it's not a roots type blower so it doesn't have that low end. It uses a turbine just like a turbo, except the turbine is driven off the crank. So you not only see parasitic drag on the motor, but turbo lag as well! Not to mention the price of it!
IMO it's way overpriced.
