Alright, im looking to "spice" up my engine in my 94 honda accord, to give
it more kick, it is an automatic but looking to change that later, but for
now, what can I add into the engine to give it more HP (It is a 4-Cylinder
Any advice would be great.
ok, its basically the same question that has been asked quite a few times
in the past 2 weeks, either the h22 or h23 spicing up thing.
just to keep it short and simple, click here (http://www.car-forums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=4505) to view the suggestions given to some of our other friends around here with the same curiosity. ill try finding the other threads that had the same question.... too lazy atm :D
Sorry for the repetition, Just found the forum and thought i'd ask, Guess I was too lazy to search my self :orglaugh:
wow, nice B18c1, thats a nice engine, I would but it in an SiR II, I like it. well, just put a turbo on it and youll be fine.
Bets its got more kick in it than my civic Dx :banghead: lol .. um what power do you want and how much we got to spend here?
As much power possible WITHIN the $600 limit. I know tubro charges cost arund 3000-5000.... I will save up for a turbo once I get little things done. If anyone out there has connections and can get me a turbo for under 1000, ill be your friend :hi:
you could problebly get an intake, cat-back exhast, high cfm throttle body. But if it were me i would just keep saving up for that forced induction.
s13 add me to AIM and get on pls sk8er2k8
might be easier that way
Turbos themselves are mostly under $1000 (for the more mainstream ones). It's all the other stuff that adds up to the cost making them a few thousand dollars.
u people really need to learn how to search for parts... geez, whole turbos
for $3,000.... i could modify my whole car and throw in some re-upholstery
for that cash.....
dont go around buying greddy stuff cuz thats just not the way things are done. stick to the things u trully need and learn how to look for parts. connections are your best friends.
I don't have any connections. And I can't find turbos for cheap :cussing:
E-bay, google, craigslist.org, aolsearch.aol.com, yahoo... Not that hard. As for the swap... H22.. a good site for jdm sh*t > www.streetimports.com < decent pricing.. :2cents:
i think i will really have to start supplying parts for u guys..... one guy
from this forum messaged me a few weeks back, n he is considering having me
send him a turbo whenever he gets some cash. my mech finds me T04's with
just like 50 miles on them for around $300, sometimes a bit more, sometimes
less, depends if its really a t04 or a t3/t4, but u get the damn idea. we
get the parts from friends that race their cars and replace their parts
after 30 minutes. just in case, no, the parts arent broken at all, i got
on one 300zx that my mech helped out build and it was using a trans that
another Z had used in only 4 runs down the 1/4 mile, and it ran just fine
(better than fine actually, not even the Z's i had driven when looking for
a new car felt that good).
plus, once i get the whole moving thing sorted, and talk with my other boss down at the speed shop, i will officially work at a speed shop (most probably). i think by september this mess should be worked out.
I don't think im gonna swap my engine, my B18 is almost as good as the H22, so im not gonna swap engines, just build up the one I have
if you're gonna stick with the B18 you might want to stroke it to a 2.0 liter
i wanted to know if I can put an Accord engine into a civic Lx 1994 4door
That car is still probably going to be slow after your mods are done unless you do something big to it, because its a heavy 4 door and only has a 4cyl. I would suggest starting with a cold air intake, header, exhaust system, and plugs and plug wires.
Im pretty sure thats possible. Not much stress I wouldnt think.
thanks a lot! well i need an new engine for it and i wanted someting better, maybe i'll go V-tec??
Yeah, VTEC would do it some good. B18 block. :thumbs:
thanks alot :mrgreen:
Also, make sure it comes out of a Honda Prelude, not an Integra. The Preludes always had bigger engines.
whoa dudes.. if yall are even thinkin' about a turbo conversion then
there's tons of work to be done, starting off with an ecu, new
headers/manifolds, new combustion chamber lay-out, blue printing the lower
block, new seals, new exhaust for a lower compression, new internals for a
lower compression, you'll need to re-build your engine bay to be able to
hold all the new parts and accessories.
new accessories consist of:
blow off valve
new cold air intake
... all that just for a small 50hp upgrade..?
if i was you i'd be lookin' for a supercharger for the engine.. what ever it may be.. h22/h23/b18... anyway... still.. if i was you i'd be doin' an engine transplant with a b18c5 and then building it for a high compression and high torque... i've heard rumors that a b18c5 w/o forced induction.. is capable of around 320hp... maybe more.. maybe less..
what if i get a H22A VTEC Engine or should i just got with the civic v tec and get it supercharged
depend's on what you want to use the car for, is it goin' to be a show car?
drag car? street car? track car? time attack car?.. what's the car's main
purpose?... depending on the desired choice for the vehicle, depend's on
i think i speak for everyone when i say "we need to know what you want it for before we can sugest things"... yeah..
