Civic DX hatch back with a type R head. First is this even possible. If it is, will it be like making an LS/vtec? I think the combo of the 9.5:1 compression + type R head + 12lbs of boos should make for a some what quick car.:) I am also looking for these parts so if you know anywhere good send me a note.

Yeah, definatley trying to mate a d-series block to a b16b head is a big no no. D and B series parts aren't interchangeable (as far as I know). Just get yourself the motor honda designed the b16b head for...trust me, your friends will be very envious if you pop the hood of your little dx and you have an honest to god Civic Type R motor in there (red valve cover and all) :)

Out of all the civics which block is the best to use when going turbo? Do any of the CHB come with vtech (besides CTR)?

The original CRX with the B16 did, as did 92-95 Civic Si and VX models. Also, the 2002ish Civic Si hatch will have VTEC.

First thing to think about. You want to put a DOHC head on a SOHC, umm how 'bout NO Scott!

The best place to get good part is sohfast.com From swaps to individual components.

When I first read this I thought that he wanted to convert his Civic DX hatch's front end to a ITR front end. You know like everyone does with those JDM conversions on the tegs. Until I started reading more and really understood what he meant to say.

Most of the Civics have a SOHC VTEC as apposed to the integras which has the DOHC VTEC.

And please don't mispell VTEC with VTECH. That just shows how little you know about Honda/Acura's especially VTEC

haha, some people seem to think that our Honda motors actually have caller ID instead of variable valve timing...when will they learn the correct spelling of VTEC?! There are just some ignorant people out there....

Yeah but don't you think VTECH is a pretty smart company to name themselves after Honda's VTEC so their sales can soar! I just can't imagine those idiots who bought it thinking it can dial at 9000rpm or something like that! (Only reffering to those who bought it for that reason and purpose instead of buying it as a regular phone)

Just because I misspelled vtec dosent mean I know nothing about honda/acura. A week ago I had an ITR that would of probably blown your doors of with no internal mods but now she is gone dam theives. Anyway incase I was not too clear with my orignal posting especially when I compared what I was doing with an LS vtec conversion. I want to get a CHB (Civic Hatch Back), remove the stock head and put an ITR head. Is this possible with CHBs??? This is not the place to ask but what about a CRV block instead of a CHB??

like everyone else said, NO unless you have a CHB civic hatch back with a B searies block. All US CHB's came with D searies blocks. You can use the CRV block with a ITR head. Thats called a CRVTEC and makes a good amount of power.

in theory you COULD do it, but not with the DX block. say get a ZC jap spec motor, (which for all of you VTEC spelling monkey spanks, is actually a D series motor, and it is DOHC)
There are SOHC ZC motors too... One thing to keep in mind.. but either way, why the hell would anyone wanna try to put a ITR head on either an old ass ZC DOHC block, or a wimpy ass DX block.. just get the f**cking B-series motor..

The block and head platforms of the B and D series are not compatible. However...you can take a B18B rod, mill the end of it slightly and use it in a D16 for added strength. It should hold close to 300 horses at the wheels where as a standard D16 rod will hold less than 250 at the wheels.

If you had an ITR, then I'd assume you'd know the difference between a B series and D series motors.. The 2 do not match up at all.. Besides one being SOHC and one being DOHC.. You cannot put an ITR/GSR/Si (DOHC VTEC) head onto any SOHC block.. if you wanted to do that, you'd need an LS block or B20z (or B20b.. though I've heard the B20z is better) block.. by the way, b20 is the CRV block..

And yes, you could use a CRV motor.. but you'd need a different intake manifold though, b/c the CRV IM won't fit under the hood.. I think there's some other things you need as well, but I'm not really sure.. http://hybrid.honda-perf.org Try that site out.. They have lots of info on hybrids..

wow just because he doesnt know how to spell vtec means that he is ignorant? lolz i think youre the IGNORANT one :) how much do YOU know about VTEC :) do you even know how it work? :)

any wayz back to the boi question :) if you have a stock hatch , its likely that its a sohc :) so you cant fit a dohc vtec head to it :) a usual frankenstein motor would be a ls/vtec or b20/vtec :) both are good for n/a or fi set up :)
