B16a2 mods

Just bought a car with a b16a2 in it. Was wondering what kind of engine modifications would be best to start out with. It has AEM cold air intake and NGk spark plug wires

What do you want to do with it Boost or n/a? Start off with some good maintenance, new plugs, fuel filter, cap, rotor, oil change, timing belt if its been close to 100k km since it was done.

I would start off with full exhaust, header and intake, then go from there. Then you could go cams and camgears, ECU...

If the maintenance is done and you just want some more N/A (acronym for lost potential) power then get a 4-1 header, 2.5" exhaust, high flow cat, full length with bypass valve or, whale penis intake, your preference on cams, probably need springs and retainers also, cam gears, an obd-1 conversion, and chipped ecu for crome, ecutune, hondata (gay) etc.

I don't agree with hondata's business practices when they tried to shutdown/heavily moderate PGMFI.com, they were just trying to kill opensource, free honda engine management. Their prices are also steep for what you get imo.

Aem widebands are fine but I prefer the Innovate units.

i'd forget all the NA stuff and save up for a turbo kit. NA is equally expensive and you get hardly any gains. You don't need to run massive boost or make massive power, but the torque and hp gains in a basic turbo kit are significant over NA when speaking dollar for dollar.

When you turbo a Stock Block B16 its only a matter of time before you break your ringlands. I know of 3 people, myself included, that toasted their B16's with boost. Innovative is the way to go with the wideband and as for mods...

Run a set of GSR cams if your going to keep the head stock or get R cams with R springs for a good boost in powerband.

Berz out.
