get some racing slicks that will kick up a notch and a clutch would help too

intake, header, exaust, and 50 shot nos with some cheater slicks will get you to about 13.6

Better cams outta get you alot closer. Look into Toda spec C or Skunk2 stage 3. I don't think the CTR cams are aggresive enough to get you into the 13s. Then start thinking about raising compression. But of course you will have to get better internals. The stock B16 internals won't handle that kinda lift. Whatever you decide to do, good luck. And keep us posted on your progress.;)

My bad.....just noticed you have a '92 hatch. With that light weight body you just might be able to get into 13s without worring about changing cams. Compression is still a good idea. Also look into a B20 block.

If you don't already have one, a header,high flow cat, throttle body, type r intake manifold, try some royal purple oil 5W-30,plugs and wires. Also some lightweight racing wheels(14" or 15") with drag radials. Sometimes all the little things really add up.

definetly do a JUN stage 3 head packge. it gives a lot a power and is very reliable. also id suggest going with a Apex'I Vtec controller and an AEM fuel rail and fuel regulator and if u got extra money a good fuel pump. a very reliable setup with a lot of power.

screw the head package.. no sense redoing what you've already done. Stick with your cams and valve springs. I run 12's all motor with a 98 civic EX (yep, a SOHC).

All this for around the price of a turbo will get you 13's. PLUS, there's room for improvement later on:


Raise the compression up around 10.5 or 11:1, bore it out anywhere from 25 to 80 over, stay N/A and away from nos for now. The new pistons, go JE with their rings, pins, etc. Just have your old rods strengthened. (shotpeened)

Other things to consider:
AT least an ignition kit. $200. Get pulleys and a cam gear for around $240. High-flo fuel injectors, fuel rail, fuel pressure regulator, and fuel pump for a little over $500. Next, some kind of fuel management, either a piggy back like apexi for $350 or a full standalone cpu like aem's new one $1400.

Lastly, if you've got an auto tranny you're gonna need a torque converter.


I can get pretty good deals on whatever you need. From like 5-10%, and not that crappy quality you get from ebay. Straight from the manufacturer too.

BTW, do the engine build first. The other parts can be added on one at a time. I ran mine, adding piece by piece over a span of 6 months.

But if you're going to spend the money, get the motor redone right. WHile your rebuilding, don't forget the little shit like gaskets, oil pumps and water pumpS!

Yeah, but what did you gain for your $3000. 50-60HP. My rebuild got me from 127 to 200.

NOT to dis your setup man, it sounds pretty sweet! It IS probably alot easier than all the work I had to do..... :cry:


Besides,highpsi, you can ALSO add Nitrous later. Bulletproofing the bottom end (stregthening) will let you spray up to 200 shot. That'll get you up into the 10's.

Not trying to burst your bubble or anything, but I don't think you're gonna be near 210hp.. unless of course you're running more boost.. The GReddy Si only puts out 217hp to the flywheel (The yellow Civic they have) running 6psi of boost with the large intercooler..

you should go to the track more, my friend :D YOU would have some fun in that ITR of yours... wait... hybrid fever... you're the one with the ITR, right. I've only been back a day, so forgive me if I'm wrong.

I'll get a list of my mods together one of these days. I've lost it since superhonda went down last time. All i'm saying is that it can be done. THANKS to me and my friend GLEN at goodson imports.

.. some of what I've learned, i've learned from him. He's got a BMW runs 9's on NOS. Car got impounded and he lost his license for like 2 years for going 150 on state roads.



By the way, I've got a guy on another post saying .080 bore is impossible. Maybe y'all can help, but does anyone know of a DOHC integra or civic in the NIRA circuit with this setup? I think it was blue last summer... I can't find any of my old INFO!
