Ok,
I'm done F'ing around with this b21a1.
I hate it, there is almost no aftermarkey support...and honestly.
I don't want it.
If anyone wants a b21a1, I'll get rid of it for $200 OBO...and probably get rid of it for cheap.

I just want to know what the best swap motor will be for a guy who wants a lot of horsepower.

You have a b21a1 in your 88-89?

Yeah, the guy I bought it from was like "its an 89 body style with a 91 b21a1 in it" So...I was like...alright, thanks for hooking me up with a car that only bolt on parts are available for...
But will I have to fabricate motor mounts for the h22, and how much will one cost?

^yup.




Before you knock the b21a1, you have to understand that our cars are old. 17+ years. Today, cars come with high HP...back in 1988, 135-140 was a lot, especially for a Honda...dont give up yet, enjoy and appreciate the b21a1, take care of it and understand it more.
This is what makes OUR community so much better...the lack of aftermarket parts makes our family that much tighter...






at least it aint no D series motor

Well, I've been driving the lude around for the past two days with a broken crank pulley.
I'm in love with lude, I got an offer to trade for a '95 Civic Hatchback (haha, those hatchback owners are trying to steal our ludes, Ghost), and I declined.
I just think that this lude's got potential, and the b21 is seemingly holding me back.

I'm guessing I'm gonna start looking at a junkyard for a smashed car with a good motor...If I can't find an H22...I might look at the "F" Series motors...

Hmm...
I'm on a budget...seeing how I'm 17!

But, thank god, My dad is as into this project as I am!

So far, My 19 year old is the only other person in this house to drive my 90 Si. And he cant have it!!! I dont know what an overhaul would cost on the B21, I have about $1400 in the B20A.
