Okay my cars pretty much stock for except the cone filter and some good spark plugs. Theres a kid here with 92 civic hatch has a b16 which he says makes 160hp stock and he has complete exhaust with header, some kind of manifold and intake. then he has nitrous. Im not expecting to kill him or anything or even hang with him but can I get my car up to that level without a swap and without a lot of money? his cars gutted in the rear 2. Anyways I want to atleast be in his league. What can I get? I know nitrous and turbos but without that how can I equal him motor to motor

hrm...

well a b16 in a 2000 lb hatch (if it's really that lightened) is good for low 14s. If he has nitrous it'll depend on the size of the shot. I'll take a guess at 35, soo...

Motor to motor is going to be hard without going into your internals, because there isn't a ton of easy bolt ons like for his B16.

Header, 2.25" exhaust, lighten the car and get yourself a shot of nitrous.

Yes a B16 makes 160 hp...unless it's a jdm sir, then it makes 170.

well, if you entirely stripped out the whole car, took off all the a/c parts, took off the power steering, no spare tire, all that good stuff, then did some engine work, you might just have him.... it really depends on how good of a driver he is. because if he's a good driver, it's going to be extremely hard to keep with him..... idk, pray for a miracle or somethin haha i kept up with an SVT Focus with my bone stock EGT, with 2 fat passengers. i'm thinking about actually taking everything out of the back end for a day at the track or something next spring, just to see what i could run maybe. (you know, spare tire, back seat and all, everything like tools that i have back there)
