The only down side is it being a design that was made in the 70s. Technology has come along way since then, and engines are designed to be much more efficient now. Efficiency means more power and better mpg with the same displacement. The Lima is bulletproof, and responds well to mods, but in stock form, it just isn't very good at making power with low emissions.

Hella hell yeah my motor has been turboed from the factory in 88 when it was in a t-bird it's not in my hands pushing 18psi threw it fully forged internals from the factory the motors 22yrs old and runs like a camp still. Even though I am building a new motor for my new turbo there's nothing wrog with my truck now. You try running 18psi on a stock Honda motor your lucky if it last 22days they like to go boom.

What kind of power is that turbo giving you? Just curious, I'm too poor to think about that kind of mod.

As most of you know I work for Honda. One word Mugen. I've seen the dyno guys here unload a tractor trailor full of Mugen parts. Take said boxes into the dyno room, and in a week drive out what was once a Oddessy minivan. Granted we build V-6 engines here, but the end result is a beast of a street vehicle. Recently we started building the Accords, and the same thing was done to one of them. Dark metallic grey, blacked out like you see in the spy photos, and fast as hell. Looked at Mugen's site, and to build that car for personal use, you're looking at another 20k.

Mugen is nothing more to Honda as Ralliart is to Mitsu, or Nismo to Nissan.

What is the problem with a 6000-9000 rpm powerband if your next shift will leave you in that range? Built plenty of turbo cars with 5000+ RPM spool point that once that hits, you cant breathe until you let off the throttle.

Truly amazing how much money is spent on aftermarket parts to develop just a few extra hp's, especially in a honda. My stock Taurus has more power and hell of a bit quieter. If the Skylines were a little more prevalent over here, their 700 to 1000 hp's are definitely something worth spending the extra cash and getting the performance your'e lookin for.

If i could spend a couple of thousand extra bucks, i'd have the supercharger setup by now. Just spoutin off a bit...

Based on your comment I would have to say that I don't think you know what your talking about.

"Skylines" have between 200-250 BHP typically. I think your confusing this for a "Skyline GTR" which is a totally different car. There is now a USDM/JDM shared "GTR", which is on a completely different platform, with a completely different engine. The good thing about the "R32/R33/R34" which you are probably referring too is that like some japanese engines, the bottom end is very capable of high numbers.

Very few "Skylines have 700-1000 HP". Just like very few Evo's have "700-1000 HP". It can be done on a Skyline, or even your Taurus. Difference is the availability of parts and software to make it work easily. It costs more money to make cars that arent typically modified faster.

You obviously don't pay much attention to the Hondas around you. Most would leave our 2.5 Liters in the dust.

plain an simple a b series will outrun a ranger hands down...i was messing around with my friend with a little single cam vtec and he still just left me lol its kinda funny cause before the ranger i had a taco X-runner with some mods (intake,full exhaust,djm drop,and the x1 with a 3k stall)which i turned a 13.9 in on my best day at the track and used to leave the little civics and v8's like nothing and could beat new school mustangs(4.6l) by like a car or two and now I got a ranger lol night and day difference but fyi vtec isnt just from 6 to 9 bro...if you get your ecu chipped out you can have vtec come one at like 4k and it'll pull to around 11k (not recommended to go that far unless you got some head work)...but ya i aint gonna go into that much detail but just take it from a dude that does nothing but works on these lil civics and has nothing but freinds with dc2's and eg's

before djm:...i dont got none with a djm but yall get the point
