high compression and forced induction are not good friends... you can make it work, but you will be caught in this half-na, half-fi quasi-hell... if you want a serious na car, build it na, if you want a serious turbo car, drop the compression, resleeve the pistons (golden eagle is preferred), and turbo it... by the time everything is said and done, the only advantage the r has is the lsd and suspension... if you really want performance, go buy a quaife, which is superior to the lsd...

Also, the quaiffe and LSD are the same price now and the quaiffe has a lifetime warranty...Oh yeah, if you wanna go turbo for less money, get a LS, but I'd recommend going all motor with a GSR. It's much more fun and when you bust a Mustang's ass on a n/a motor, it's a completely different feeling.

Civic Si or Integ LS tranny with Quaiff LSD

This is a "wish list" of engine stuff i've thrown together. I'm not sure if it works, but from the homework i've done it looks good so far. if you go FI you definitely need to drop your compression.

That www.howstuffworks.com site rocks! i'm on there almost as much as i'm on T-I!

Basically you have to set a goal... how much hp... how much $$$ and reliability. Build the engine for what you intend to use the car for.

you can have a turbo high cr motor but it must be tuned well to prevent detonation.

Since your new, here is a small bit of advice.. If a part your buying comes in a box that has the letters, APC, OBX, or says Ractive.. DO NOT buy it.. You'll thank me later

Civic Si or Integ LS tranny with Quaiff LSD
The civic Si and LS tranny are two very different transmissions. The Si tranny (about the same ratios as an itr) is geared a lot shorter than the LS tranny. I've had both in my car. The LS tranny had very little pull in third gear compared to the Si tranny.
