    hi all,

    i am wodering how does it perform ??

    i want to do the swap, but don't want any loud exhausts,

    what kind of performance can i expect ??

    have you got any times maybe ?? (0-60) or 1/4mile time ??

    please note if you have any other performance mods, so i know :Smile:

    thanks guys

    i got a stock b18c4 in an eg6 with breathing mods, and it's a hella lot nicer to drive than a b16a2, lots more torque and the LSD is niceee too :Grin:

    i've got a spoon n1 which sounds gorgeous in tec :Smile:

    well when i had my b16a2 in my coupe i could destroy my m8 in his 182 clio with breathing mods so i assume considering the b18 is more torquey and more BHP standard then it should be fun was considering getting a bottom end myself for the new Civic.

    I had one in my stripped EJ2, ran a 14.5 at pod with it.

    That was with a light flywheel, full exhaust and a cock intake.

    It drops in nice and easy, the hardest part is the wiring, i had my wiring done for me, so i have no clue how its done
