So my dumb ass has started the b18 metro. So far I have pretty much just pulled the metro apart. And before everyone attacks me and says that I don't know what im in for that ill have to make beakers and mounts and change everything under the car. I know im a professional fabricator and do fabrication for a living. Ill post pics along the way and am down to hear any input or advice. I plan on using a b18c1 motor with a b16a1 head. It will be fully built and om hoping to hit mid 600whp and my goal is 8 sec 1/4 mile. Will p
ost more tonight with pics

it's going to take a lot of work to hit 600hp. and making it streetable is another story. I know a guy that was pushing 500hp in his 94 ek hatch and he said it wasn't fun to drive in traffic. 80mph burnouts was cool tho. take a lot of pictures and keep us up to date.

And for the bashing. traitor. v-tec ain't $hit honda sucks and b16-18 are like tampons every pu$$y needs one. lol I personally don't have anything against hondas but i do with the 16 year old kids thinking they are street racers.

There was a guy at one of our PNW meets that had a turbo b16 running 300hp, I forget his name but he might be able to help ya with the details.

sorry about the crapy pictures dont have a camera so i was using my phone :roll: . i plan on getting the other side primered and ready for paint this weekend hopefully if it stays some what nice and not windy out... my garage kinda colapsed on me... :huh: its ok thow it wass built in the early 1920s along with the house. house has been rebuilt now time to replace the garage with a large morton building. but for now the yard will have to do so weather permitted i plan on getting this thing ready for paint by monday. i cant decide on a color though i at first was thinking a limeish green but soon pitched that idea. then it was like a electric blue then a dark dark purpleish blue. ill get some pics up with some colors and get kinda like a vote going on.. if i use someones pic on here as a color idea sorry lol just like the color. :mrgreen:

sorry its been so long. got a motor in my spare time of finding a motor i rinolined the inside got some seats. the motor is a b20 with a b16 hydrolic tranny. im down to the wiring part of things right now and i was going to cut and splice into the geo wireing with the honda but now im just going to use the complete honda wiring, fuse box and all . ill have to splice a few plugs like wiper motor and signals but thats no big deal. i would like to use a differnt style head light / front bumper as i hate the look of the geo lights was thinking a early 90s civic . any pics of conversions would be great if there are any out there. ill try to get pics up soon of motor and where it sits now. im as you now am not on the web a lot. lol
