Anyone with a part number? Well guys also have a B18B block was thinking of going turbo LS/Vtec anyone wanna share some light N/A or TURBO? well here in South Africa its cheaper to build turbo car than N/A when you driving a tec parts here are very limited everything has to be bougth from agents and performance stuff there is only 2 people I know of that imports Honda stuff. Oh yes lets not forget there is a guy here running mid 9's 1/4mile in his turbo tec 0.1 sec slower than the quickest front wheel drive turbo only in South Africa. the TEC is a full car no interior and the quickest is a super BOSS full race car I mean everything is cut had the car in a local mag showing the owner lifting the car up by the wheelie bars YOU GO FIGURE

:thanks:

Yes that is correct or if ITR which ever give better CR

Thank You

Can you please tell us what motor you have and the mods ?

I you have a B18C and you install civic type r pistons, your compression will be raised, to the point that you'll have to use high octane petrol :nice:

hey there thank you for the reply i have a B16A motor. But want to put pistons in a B18B block with B16A head, CTR cams, branch and 57mm exhaust. Looking for CR anywhere between 11.5 and 12and don't want to use to many parts that are not OEM trying for a good powered honda built engine doesn't have to be the quickest thing around just a GOLF killer. It is just the 2.0l 16v golf 1 full engine work done with side drafts that is working me badly.Going to use the car everyday.
