So I decided to throw my car on the dyno to see my improveme nts over the last time I dynoed (which was 2 years ago). I was shocked like hell LOL.




It's basically a stock internals b16 with ctr cams and bolts.

176hp out of a b16 is great, but it wasn't enough for me. At the topend my car moves, but outside of vtec it's a snail. So I decided to move on to bigger and better things.



b20vtec ftmfw!

Since I was getting married I couldn't go all the way out (sleeved, forged, headwork, etc) I decided to make basically an overbored ITR clone. So I picked up a set of 84.5mm type r style pistons.



I collected all the parts I need to install a girdle on my b20 plus some extras



-GSR/Type R ARP main studs
-GSR/Type R windage tray
-GSR/Type R oil pick
-OBD2 b-series oil pump
-KMS girdle
-ARP rod bolts
-KMS block guard
-ARP head studs

I also did a bumper pole delete (aka got a new front bumper), got new bumper lens, and added a SiR lip to the front.



I installed a new "H" emblem and new side markers also.

Update:

New header





What's most important 2.5in collector



Here's my new exhaust






(It got a few dents on top of the muffler, but for the price I don't care. Plus, its on the top where you don't see it)

I used to bash ebay products, but they are actually pretty decent. They are far from the best when it come to quality (when compared to some of the big names), but well worth (if not more) the price they go for (atleast the exhaust products). My plan was to just use the piping and chop off the muffler and tip, but I may actually run it as is (unless the sound is gay) for a little bit. I do plan on looking around at a few muffler shops to see if I can find a dual outlet tip, so the exhaust can look more OEM.
