CivicJdmB16a's Build #2 ***Ls Vtec***

Post by civicjdmb16a »

Well heres the first picture of my new motor. An B18a which was sleeved with AEBS sleeves good for 55+psi, by Z10 motorsports in Neptune, NJ.

It also has a Z10 girdle for spinning that crank high up that rpm range :D

The head is a B16 head and is at CNC port for a full port and polish and full valvetrain from supertech thats good to 10,500rpm's.

My last motor had a issue when i lost a piston and it took out the sleeve and the head. Mostly due to a poor sleeve install, no-name pistons and some bad desisions on my behalf :cry: Because of a bad sleeve install i kept blowing headgaskets and the last time it failed the piston broke into a million peices.

So now on to bigger and better things :twisted:

It gives the bottom end more strength by joining three main caps, and allows you to turn high rpm's. Since im going to be spinning 10,000rpm's i felt it was a must. i dont know why the GSR was the only one to come with that. you think the type r would have had it too.

hmmm you would think eh ? i would understand b16 wouldnt have it untill the 3rd gen b16a around the same time as the GSR... the type R should come with it too... i would buy one for my b16 just to have one thanks for the info... i figured it was there for more strength i just wasn't all there

800 isnt too shabby of a price and it saves on popping holes in the long run. i was quoted 1100 for dart sleeves but after doing some reading ive heard that some shoddy shops had been doing the job and after the engine had ran a little bit the sleeves "dropped". so im thinking aebs probably.
siR anyone?

looks like you're going to have one hell of an engine :thumbup:
Are you using the same turbo set-up from the old motor? With this motor, it seems like you can go bigger :shock:
Can't wait to see it in the car...
Where did you get the breathers welded into the valve cover?

Yeah for the most part it will be the same. I really never reached the full potential of my last setup so i will try again with a much better platform. I do plan on getting a set of skunk2 pro 1 cams. Chris from Xenocron had my head built for these cams and says they respond very well to a high boost application. He plans on making 600whp at 24psi with this setup. I can always get a better turbo to make even more power, but for now i will make do with what i have. Chris from xenocron also welded those bungs in for me and then i had it painted.

I also ordered my limited slip from quaife today :thumbup:
