forced induction is probably the cheapest right now... you already have a b16.

either go turbo, or swap.

you pretty much have all the bolts ......internals will make you fast ....pistons etc. or go with a bigger bottom end .....gsr or ls

it's a civic.


it cannot be fast without forced induction or F1 level NA work

those bolt ons won't do much.....it's not a V8

hey, i know a ot of people are going to flame you about this. really it all depends on the use of the car (drag or daily) and how fast you want to go and also budget.

nitrous is the easiest bang for the buck. if you wanna go N/A: pistons, more aggressive cams, build and sleeve the block/head, a good port and polish, etc.

or some combo of the two.

titanium springs and retainers, after market valves, msd ignition, new coil, better plugs, better plug wires, better clutch, lighter flywheel, lighten it up (lighter rims,take out back seat,spare tire,jack etc........nitris. 50 shot wet. if u wanna save up get a stroker kit or forged pistons and rods. really theres an endless amount of options

do you want to go N/A? if you turbo it you could go just as fast and spend half the money you would spend on a N/A build. (or you could do the nitrous.)
just my $.02

NOS would be the easiest way... A semi built b16 N/A might give you 160-180whp on the good side... I don't know if you would consider that enough HP to go fast... For an H4 civic at Thunderhill it would be super fast... On the street against a boosted D it might be sorely lacking....


Semi built N/A b16 175whp/125tq-$3000 after the motor < Stock d16z6@10psi 205whp/200tq $2000 after the motor

If a 2000 Civic Si with those bolt ons....if you dont consider that "fast" then you really have to either build it to hell (like Endyn with there 300whp B20 block) or your gonna have to look into a K24 from a TSX. FI is the best bang for your buck to go "fast" for ya. Look into a supercharger if ya dont want the turbo lag.

what cams, what header, what exhaust you got? Any tunning?

If you got no tunning with cams I'm sorry, but that's just retarded.

Anyways just get a b18c bottom end or the whole long block and swap that in.
It will get faster

Also IM would help.

If you wonna go ***** out and got like $2500 in your pocket, go get a LS bottom end, sleeve it, get some rod bolts, with high compression pistons and slap your head on it. It will put down some tire shreading numbers

Im surprised no one said Vtech controller. i think that is a pretty cheap way of going. but dont get out of controll with that. dont want Vtech kicking in at very low RPMs. atleast thats what i think

you know why they say "when VTEC kicks in" cause the dealerships all say that, as if its a boost control or something. Ive seen em sell it, "well a regular motor compared to a VTEC motor..." It sells tho.
