Yeah I bet. Well if it doesn't idle like complete dog shit, then it's not 405's.

You can still make good power with nonvtec

The idle isn't bad.

What's a safe rev limit for forged rods on these bigger cranks?

If the idle isn't bad, and it makes really good power. I would say they are probably Crower 403s or 404s. Or They could be Brian Crower cams.

Well, I have a nonvtec b20, and my pops has a b20vtec. Both with stock rods.

Redline is set at 7800 because my cams stop making power at 7500. Pops' is set at 8500, with a b16 head, type R cams and dual valve springs.

I would imagine your block could take of that, being sleeved and forged rods.

Should be ale to take it to 9k with no problems as long as it has ARP fasteners on the forged rods, and dual valve springs. I would Dyno to see where it stops making power and rev about 200-300rmp less.

I'd like to tune it for shits and giggles, but that might be wasted $ since I have another intended motor anyway...

Dnt tune just Dyno to see wat it's making and where it's making it power in the powerband, makes for a good selling point when u decide to sell.

If I were to dyno it, I'd at least try to tune it for an hour.

Anyway, the rules got changed for 2013: minimum weight got bumped up by 200lbs to make other chassis' competiti ve.   

This really sucks!   

Basically, I will need to be at 2100lbs to make minimum weight.   :/

Small update:





The short shifter felt a little notchy, so I added the circuit hero shifter extender and spoon duracon knob.

Feels good bro.

Alex14 hooked me up with an 88 Lx power steering rack today.

I'll get some pics up shortly.
I'm hoping to add that with a steering quickener + mr2 electric ps pump and get it down to 2.5 turns lock to lock.

I snapped some quick pics yesterday of my 91 si (black) vs my 88 std (grey). 

There are some some subtle (and not so subtle) differenc es:



















One thing that stands out to me is that the front end of the 88 is shorter.
It's like 4" shorter overhang even though the wheelbase is the same!
That is quite significa nt IMO - especiall y for autox when trying to not hit cones. 

I also took a quick look under the 88; it has h&r springs and itr style rear lca'a.
It also doesn't have a front or rear swaybar.
