And you'd be crazy to buy an engine sitting in a Japanese junkyard for ~20 years without doing any maintenance on it. The engines have low mileage but they're not "like new" at all.

The fact that...

If you dump the $2700 you have on hand into these projects, you won't start "saving" for another 5 months....

If you want to start saving right away, leave the CB alone and drive it as is.

I had an 8th gen Civic with the 1.8. It was a good spiritual successor to the CB. Problem is the game has moved on a bit. It was slow, loud and had very weak A/C. I would look at the new Civic 1.5T....

I'm still not quite convinced...

What are you driving now? CB7s are approaching 30 years old. Are you really going to drive one until it's 40?

I would do this as a side project. As a DD built on a...

Nobody cares anymore. Here's a video about a high HP L15B7. Sounds pretty good to me, seems to run pretty well too.

I don't think anyone has said the 1.5T could match the 2.0T with mods. I think the question is, for someone happy with close to stockish power, do those differences matter? Not everyone needs 400WHP-...

Depends what you are looking for I guess. 400WHP is not of much use on the street and 400FWHP sounds miserable. I'm a bit surprised someone who drives an N/A FA5 is so power obsessed as well.

I feel like peak 10th gen Civic might be one with the 1.5T + CVT. Keeps you in the power band and will run 13s with a KTuned Stage 2 reflash and nothing else. The Civic has gone to another...

Not a bike, my G37. I did do a track day on my bike, and that went great. I'm done riding though, that was my last time on the bike.

Scott can be a little.... insistent :D I wouldn't take it personally.

The 1.5T still gives me pause, especially with the 20 or whatever PSI of boost it's making. Honda got ~190HP out of a 1.6L with...

Honda could easily have afforded to put the 2.0T in as well. A real missed opportunity.

I was hoping the new Insight would use the 1.5T as the gas engine too. Weird decisions.
