Looks like a good start.

Mostly Chump racing?

With the 4.25 FD, you might consider either 195/50-15 or 205/50-15.

I'd suggest a 7.5 or 8" wheel and run a 225/45-15

I would agree if speeds and lack of traction was present. But a set of sticky narrow tires and the narrow wheels would cut down the upsprung weight.

But like I said.. track conditions and speed would be a deciding factor to move up to larger heavier wheels.

Thanks for the suggestions in regards to tire sizes. Has anyone had an issue with oil starvation with these motors?

No experience with your setup directly, but integra brakes all around in my B20 pan at maybe 70% threshold braking coming off a decent mid-speed sweeper... That made my oil warning light flash... But I was also running 1/2 full(1/2 on the dip stick, so maybe 3qts?) of oil at the time.

Anyway I'm diggin' this new crop of "noobs"...

Comes to the forum with a racecar racecar. Not questions on how to build a psuedo-wannabe-racecar-daily.

Welcome!

Considering they are running a 195/55-15 currently, that is a little over-sized, especially with the lower 4.2 FD.

Dropping down to a 50 series tire will help get some acceleration back.
