Good luck with your build mate. Shame your bulkhead is nice and clean and shiny as if your going standard length there's a good chance it's gonna get cut up. Make sure you link loads of pics onto the thread so we can see how your doing.

Wahoo! Another honda! :P Tracked - Looking forward to this

Are you keeping it a secret on the bits your getting or can you share with us what frame your using or if its a homemade one?

Also as above, link your pics on here, I know its hassle but it makes it alot easier for people to see and help, otherwise when you add to it we won't know what page on there we left it last?

Incase you don't know, Hover your mouse over the pic and click the IMG link and paste it here :)

I haven't seen one in the flesh yet so don't know alot about them, going by the allspeed one using TB's on the taller B18 block will minimize the bulkhead mods, infact I don't think it needs any? B16 still needs them. Not sure how different this will be to your frame as I'm guessing your engine will sit maybe a fraction further back than the allspeed one

Cutting up the inlet and either re-welding it or using hoses is another, TB's are pricey but you really need to get the engine frame etc here first and go from there

Finaly decided on a engine spec going to use specialist components typhoon engine management with at power throttle bodies with aem coil on plugs then a set of skunk 2 cams or similar and a gasflowed cylinder head and hav the head decked to raise the compresion a little , then later on probably fit a 2.2 stroker kit at a later date , and get a better final drive fitted to the gear box , hopefuly this should all work ,Posted Imagehttp://atpowershop.co.uk/catalog/images/products/direct-to-head-throttle-bodies/HondaB16%20-%204.jpg

Kit looks nice mate, I'm sure you got the fitting instructions aswell, but if you haven't its on there website

I'm still waiting for my 'bit' from minitec so hopefully that'll be here soon........

And what bore size are you going for? 81.5?

Cheers mate, its being tracked and is with customs at the moment so I'll give them a day or so......

Wasn't you getting a stroker kit? Or is that just pipeline stuff? Just thinking as you'll get another set of pistons with that and everything

82 eh? :thumbsup:

yeah i was thinking of geting a stroker kit eventualy , but just going to get it on the road first and hav a bit of fun from it 1st , yeah ive got some 82mm pr3 pistons so that should rase the compresion ratio up abot 11,6 and ive just got the integra head wich ive sent to have it lightly polished and ported and new valve stem seals and 3 angle valve seats , just want it to go in and not have to take it all out after a few months , so hopefuly after a full rebuild it should be good for a while.
