Thats probably due to the tranny. B16 tranny has smaller gear ratios so boost seems alot diffrent.Ok I see , so boost a B18?, I've seen around that however with a B16 the power range is better throughout more of the rpm range compared to a B18 being only good in the higher rpm range? True or false?
^^ This. Ive got a B16 Hydro trans on my B18B swapped civic, and I love it, but 4000 revs to do 75mph sucks. I need an LS 5th gear.B16 tranny= short gears good for all motor
Ls tranny=great tranny for nitrous not non vtec
GSR tranny= great for turbo and nitrous setups
If i had a b series id run a B16 tranny with an Ls 5th to avoid the lousy 116 mph govern. If it was all motor that is.
Lsd it allways a plus but $$
Check out the A-series motors. All torquey, and the torque numbers are higher. They're from the old 80's accords. And you'll find that also with some high comp F series.That was blast, but fell flat on it's face at 5.5k. First time we'd ever seen a honda motor with TQ higher than HP.
