    93 Turbo Civic Build/Rebuild

    As many of you know, I bought peps civic off him to save it from going to a 16 year old that would inevitably wrap it around a tree

    Have a few short term plans for the time being. Have a lot of little things to repair and replace.

    Will be getting a ramhorn manifold and upgraded engine management over the winter, and a tune in the spring. Waiting for the synapse black Friday sale for all of that stuff.

    Car is in desperate need of a new/upgraded trans.

    There is still the possibility of buying my integra back if the kid I sold it to gets more reasonable with the price. Using the itr trans and swapping the engine, turbo kit, rims, brakes ect. onto it. But thats just an idea at the moment. Much prefer the interior of the integra, the civic has been around the block a few times

    Glad to be back in the honda game and finally have boost. Definitely faster than the 350Z

    Everyone knows what it looks like, but here are some pics anyways. Sorry about the iphone quality

    Congrats! Will you be keeping the 350?

    Putting a 1.6 into a car that comes with a 1.8 stock?

    I would get kicked off Camaro5.com if I said I was swapping an ls1 turbo into my car, and removing the ls3.

    Swapping a 350 for a built 267. Just doesn't make sense

    Re: Turbo Civic - Under new ownership

    Really how much difference is there between a B16 and a B18c.. Really.. Especially when you throw a turbo on a B16. The B18C block can always be used in the event that the B16 decides it's unhappy with the turbo setup.. right? I don't think that's a terrible plan at the end of the day. Put the Civic back to N/A and sell it when the teg is done is also a good idea.. Maybe..

    Nice buy, I really liked shooting that civic, as well as being in it - Seemed like a really good street car that you don't have to worry about things falling apart like you do when you get into the big leagues like some of the other guys in town. That's the kinda car I'd build if I had the chance to - power wise - as I'm not ready to hang with people like Neema or Conway or Eric.. That level is a little too intense for me

    "Really how much difference is there between a B16 and a B18c...."

    The dyno will easily answer that question.

    Probably the same reasons most people building a b18 block, punch it out to a 2L. Its actually amazing how much of a difference it can make on everything. (Turbo spool, length of the power band, torque curve, power out of boost, amount of boost to achieve the same power). Every little bit of displacement counts. The bigger you can go with displacement the less stress you will have to put on the motor.

    Re: Turbo Civic - Under new ownership

    I love the fact that this B16 revs to the moon. Turbo is making boost at 4000-9000.

    Boosting the LS/vtec, if I bought the teg would cost thousands just to prepare it to take a turbo build

    Not going for mad numbers (at least not yet)

    My goal is a reliable 300-350HP when it gets tuned in the spring with the new manifold, new engine management and clean up the car.

    What I know needs work already.

    Front struts need to be rebuilt. (havent looked into it yet or even if its possible)

    Needs motor mounts and some suspension bushings in the rear (also havent looked into that yet)

    Picked up some interior bits and new door pannels from bucks. Just cleaning up some shotty work. Made some new plastic covers for the inner door, old ones were ripped/cracked and held on with duct tape and spray foam

    Valve cover studs were stripped, was blowing oil out of the stud grommet. Have to do some heli-coil work. Never realized how shitty of a job honda did porting the head when I had the VC off. I think a 12 year old could have done a better job. (one example on the right)

    Tremblay, why would Honda clean up that part of the casting? The time and money spent would gain zero benefit.

    92 Toyota Pickup Lexus V8 supercharged 400hp? TBA

    Re: Turbo Civic - Under new ownership

    I hate to tell u this but that's not considered "porting". That's just an oil return passage that as James said would net no benefit in removing. Who said a ls/vtec won't rev? The sol spun to 8500 and I believe Lindsey is spinning his to 9000. Plus you'll have way more torque and a better/wider powerband.

    Re: Turbo Civic - Under new ownership

    I have a sleeved B18 block that would solve all this silliness..

    Also, displacement is not relevent to how high you can rev an engine..

    Re: Turbo Civic - Under new ownership

    For just the block can the B16 crank be used with longer rods and new pistons? Or is that not exactly how it works.. Trying to think of what he could re-use from his current B16 to build a stronger engine without costing thousands of dollars...
