Well it has come to pass i currently do not own a SOHC , or a honda for that matter. yes my CRX drove away today with its new owner. So here i sit with a fist full of cash contemplating my next build. I learned allot about boosting hondas building this CRX and with the knowledge i learned i feel my next one will be even better, however I really feel to take it to the next level I should go with a b18c1, dont throw rocks at me just yet let me talk. A D series is a awesome motor to say the least, however they have their limits before you have to start really spending some coin to make them strong enough for the numbers and 1/4 mile times im looking to run, im looking for 500+ at the wheels for my next daily driver and a D just isnt going to do that for me with what i can afford, a b18c1 can run them numbers on pump with ease with only rods, pistons and a few other little odds and ends. So since their is no such thing as a b16c1.org and this site is one of the best of the best i hope i can still stay here and torture, tease and annoy you all even if i am spinning 2 cams. yeah i did the math and rechecked it and to hit 10s which is my goal for this year in a daily driven D powered street car it would have took me way to much cash and even then it would have been iffy as to if the tranny would have held up to it with no failure, a B tranny is also going to be stronger and help me meet my goals. so unless i put a b tranny or one of those other tranny swaps on a D which is expensive i think its best to go this route. sunday i am going to newjersey to look at a possible candidate, its a 93 hatch, and seems to be what I am looking for. it needs some little things done to it but it will be a huge boost in the right direction i think. we shall see how it goes, i want to be sure i grab the right project car and not rush into things. i think i may buy a winter beater soon and for that i will be looking for a D for sure :) then i wont be such a traitor .

Hey, this is a D-series site, but we're all here for the love of Honda's when you get to the core of it. i imagine you will have another drool worthy build on your hands. Any criticism you will receive is probably gonna come from jealousy, not because of the B but due to the power LOL.

Good luck dude and glad to see the CRX was sold, even though i am sad to see it leave the site, i know it's what you wanted.

At least it will be another Honda. It would be even worse if you had a Hyundai and was on this site :eek::eek::eek::eek:

well i really want to say i could care less. for the simple fact of all the whinning and crying you did prior about all the rep and whatnots. it tell me that all you need is to be in the limelight but in fact you're just be anothe follower. what do i mean by this... point in case:

N/A is the expensive way to go slow
you know that statment can only be spoken by the most narrow minded person for the simple fact is... gee how many turbo hondas are on here? answer: so many that you can go thru the members list and find som many that you'll just be another turbo honda. "oh look another turbo honda."*sarcaism*

now for a true n/a build to show power take time and patience. then oh let me slap on a T3/T4 w/ram horns some 550cc injectors and a simple tune and woo hoo i broke 300whp. but to extract tru hp from a n/a take a,ot of trail and error. why? can you cgo thru the membership and find real n/a. i can probly name everyone and maybe it won't be more than you can count on one hand.

so in truth N/A is the expensive way to go slow but i would rather be in that small list of elite while you my friend would be forgotten by the end of the week of your thread. unless you can hit mid 9s or better in the 1/4 but till then go and drown with all the other follower with in the 200-325whp cars that may go between 12-11 in the 1/4 cars.
