goodbye turbo kit!
planning to remove turbo kit and switch to all-motor..150+ bhp with turbo kit and it'll drop down to 127 bhp...replacing cams, spark plugs and hi tension wires...also planning to purchase new brakes...swap wishbone suspension for CTR or Si series...any more suggestions?
its a vtec motor right? which motor is it? i'd say maybe get it ported too and matched to a nice intake if ur gonna go all-motor.this is assuming you've got a niice exhaust and intake right?
K&N exhaust and intake...
stock ignition has been proven to be fine up to 400whp on d-series motors. assuming the hp# you posted it sounds like you have a d16y8. 150hp at the flywheel isn't much at all. how much boost were you running to only gain 33bhp, like 3-4psi? crank the boost up, the d-series can hold 200whp (about 220bhp) safely without any internal modification and with a tune. if you are dead set on n/a, then getting back to 150bhp would be pretty easy, that's only around 115whp, which you can get back from a great i/h/e combo and some cam work. you get a good bump in power if you include all of that with higher compression pistons (pm6 pistons from a d16a6) and some porting with that you'll get closer to 130whp and pulling on gsr's. that will give you 10.34:1 compression which with a proper tune will be fine for pump gas and even better if you can run some type of water/methanol injection or e85.
i got my b-16 swapped with fb22 with larger pistons and its boosted...just got new tires and brakes...
what? why didn't you boost the b16?
i had my b16 boosted before, and i had that "old-ass" turbo kit...now i'm more into Honda muscle, if thats how they would call it..
get a rebuild kit and call it a day... honda muscle? with honda's the best replacement for displacement is a boost (or nitrous)
