:bang: first loss tonite all I saw was a civic sleeper, red, black rims, no fart can. Rolled about 55, 60-120 and he was leaving me like no tomorrow. Definitely turbo and had 2 have been a massive one b/c he pulled on top end like a beast. I thought I had him at first but I guess the boost wasn't fully kicked n 4 a bit. Car was nasty. Guess it was a b16 swap?

Those are the ones you have to watch out for. Very stock looking except for the monster FMIC in the front. Respectable death.

doubt it was a b16, but i had a civic with a h22 swap, low compression pistons, and was running a decent amount of boost, what you might have thought was stages may have just been it building boost better in each gear. mine would not hit full boost in 1st or 2nd. but 3rd was crazy. i loved that car but when your edging up on 30 you just start to not want to roll in civics anymore

From what ive heard the H22 is like the big block of honda motors, Ive seen 500+ rwhp from those engines. Crazy ass power! but the problem with them is trying to find a transaxle that works with that kind of power.

Damn, sounds like that Honda was quick as hell. Too bad you weren't able to get some specs from him. Ah well, next time. :D

what i did about the transaxles, if your not loaded, is just get the lifetime warrantied ones and try to always preload. your pulling such little weight and rolling into the power with the turbo that i didn't have too much problem.

My buddies is like that. Stock ass d16, with a gt30r on it. Looks like a stock crx, till you see the FMIC. Nice death. It happens.

lets not forget about the possibilities that it was a K series swap which.. is the baddest motor honda has ever produced.. those motors are so boost friendly it's not even funny a friend of mine boosted his and all he had to do was upgrade the injectors as the computer adjust for everything.. no retune needed.. When i was 17 i had bought an FC RX7 that i ended up doing a 20b swap into it... i know it dyno'd at 461 the wheels and that was on moderately low boost like 6lbs and i got walked buy a boosted H22 and it was brutal i think at 120 when i shut it down he was about full lengths ahead of me.. so hondas can be fast but it depends on how much money you can put into them and a feeling of borrowed time lol

Move near me and you won't have those problems. These fabled "boosted Civics" don't exist in my area haha

Could have been spinning too and just rolling through the gears to initially hit a little bit a traction could have been that as well.

B-Series' are junk. It is the K20s you need to watch out for when boosted.

My buddy puts down 327fwhp on 16lbs boost in his EP3. Fast car, only weighs around 2700lbs too.

:eyes: I think that's a bit of an overstatement... saying K20s are good and B-series suck is like saying LS1s are awesome and LT1s suck.
