Damn, $14K. Well at least he has the real deal.

I would put that money into a turbo buildup, but that's just me.

your friend is FUCKING RETARDED
that 230 hp is measured at the CRANK so it will see 180to the wheels on a good day.

jesus christ for that much money you could have a 10 second hatch and a daily driver.

your friend should be kicked in the head.

Man I think your boy got ripped off becuase I just check the Spoon website and it listed the Spoon preped B16B for 380,000yen. That should only come out to $3,100 USD. Adding the tranny which cost 160,000yen($1,300USD),computer is only 80,000yen($650USD),Spoon mounts are pretty cheap only $300USD. Grand total is $5,350USD. The only thing I couldn't find the price on was the 2.0L stoker kit. I thought they discontinued that a long time ago.

dude a stock USED b16b motor goes for more than that in the states.

14 grand for a motor you need to rebuild every 20K miles or so?

do you think its worth it? its a race motor meant to be refurbished every once in a while.

oh yeah, by the way. spoon motors have never been proven to rev to 11,00 rpms, it was only a speculation. my friends 1.8L stroked 2.0 rev'd to 10,500 about 5 times before it went bye bye... so if you think its reliable enough to rev all day long, good luck to you and your 14G's.

edit: and yes, it was running full 100% real spoon sports components. its garbage.

The motor put out 230 somthing hp last week on the dayno and about 260hp to the crank. The guy who got the motor for him said that every 10,000 miles he will have to maybe rebulit the motor.

And... Your friends special? For 14 grand you coulda built a B20VTEC TURBO 100 times more reliable than that putting out just as much power at stock boost with hell of alot of change left for other things.
