boosting a B18B

I've decided I want to run boost in my project Civic. From what I've read the b18b is really the best engine for this. H22 is too big heavy for an EF to handle and stuff.

Now, where should I start to build this? So far money isn't an issue and I want to build this as powerful/reliable to use as street legally possible. It'll be somewhat daily driven, but I want it to own on the track. I've heard of guys getting 600 hp out of these set-ups without runnings juice, which will what I'm doing. No juice at all. So any tips, info, suggestions would be appreciated.

I know I'll be doing internals if I really want this thing to own and hold up. Questions is, which parts, manufacturers etc.

That's for the other forum. Don't worry. When this thing is done, oh man it's gonna own.

If money werent an issue Id go with JE internals... if you want 600hp be prepared to spend around 15gs at least

Yeah maybe for the engine and internals just on it's own...

U godda get other things like clutch, brakes, suspension, fuel rail, throttle body, manifolds, injectors, spark plugs, good ignition system, make sure your fuel system is working properly, etc...etc...etc...

U godda make sure u got good tires otherwise you'll be doing nothing but burning out even in 5th gear

U need to be able to let your engine do the work you intent for it and be able to keep it under control.

The whole car will be built. I'm gonna make 2 lists. One for just pure dream car, and the other for realistic set-up and parts etc. If did the LS swap and had a DSM turbo set-up without doing internals, how much hp/torque do u think I could get safely and reliably? Looking for at least 200-250 WHP

you could run 8-10psi (10 pushing it) on it... That should get you a around the 220-240ish mark... maybe 210lbs of torque... it all depends on how well the engine is tuned, fuel, ignition...
