b16 hep

my b16 burns a lot of oil. I have al the bolt ons, along with a fully built head itr im and tb. My bottom end is factory b16. I realize im burning a lot of oil.

1) Does that affect my power
2) what could it be and should i fix it or swap the block and drop a b20 or b18ls or a gsr type r .
3) which is the cheapest and which will be the most relible and fastest.

chances are your piston rings are no good, how much are you burning?

new rings = pretty much a complete rebuild of the bottom end.
It would be cheaper to swap in a lower mileage engine.
If you're in there replacing the rings you gotta pull the head and replace the head gasket, you need new rod bearings and if you're replacing them you might as well do the main bearings/thrust washers. And if you're gunna spend the money on that you should do the oil pump, water pump, timing belt and tensioner. Along with new rear main seal and oil pan gasket and pickup tube gasket you would have basically a completely rebuilt bottom end. If you can do the labour yourself this will only cost about $1000.
You can build a stock b20vtec (which IMO would be more fun than rebuilding the b16) for around the same price ($600-800 for b20 and $300 for the golden eagle vtec conversion kit, which is worth every penny IMO) a stock b20vtec w/bolt-ons will yeild 160-180whp and 140-150ft/lbs compared to a stock b16's 140-160whp and 110-118ft/lbs. The added displacement of the b20 yeilds a lot more torque which translates into a broader powerband and more useable power...or a really fun street car.

i was quoted roughly 2800 assuming you brought the bottom end in and it would be built... i think somewhere between 200-220whp and 150-170 wtq...

i hear you about thegulf war....My white car hasa black rear bumper...i spend soo much on car washes it aint funny....now..im leaning towards buying a type r. ANd slap it on. BUT remember ,most of the r's are abused...a more reliable approach would be buy a b20 for around 800 from tecknotik and buuy a glden eagle vtec cconversion kit. and slap it on. JUST LIKE THAT...and keep the rev's to about 7500 msx and it should be really reliable................now which is faster

option 1-b20 vtec with a built head and keepint he rev's to about 7500 max cause im not changin pistons or rods

option 2 buy a type r bottom end and boot it to 8500
