Just curious. I knew there were other threads, but I didn't think it prudent to dig them up.

For my part, I don't have a car yet. I have an excellent chance, however, of getting a Honda Civic CX with a JDM B16B2 under the hood. It'll get some attention from me, maybe a larger block, and then it willl really be mine. Who else?

At the moment, I'm a car borrower. Looking for one of my own, though. Trouble is, I'm picky.

Nah, I like the B16. Thinking about the B18 block, though.

The B18 block will make my engine in effect a B18 without internal work. Plus, the B16 head is the weapon of choice for the turbo Honda. AND, no I'm not running a Vette engine.

I'd have a WRX if I had my choice. BUT the Honda seems like a great substitute, especially for ripping on the local ricer boys in their Cavalier.

The rex was three times more expensive to insure for only 50 more HP. It's even nicer to crush the cavaliers (and Hondas) when the snow falls. It's so unfair... it's funny.

Whereas I can tell the insurance company it's bone stock, since the car was available exactly like it is now in Japan as the Civic Type R. There's no one real quick around here, 220fwhp in a 2100 pound car is more than enough.
