    wrx vs crx with b16 motor

    wrx- 3' morgan racing catback, blitz bov, gutted uppipe, home made short ram..

    crx- b16 motor, dc header, cams, aem pulley set, aem cool intake,
    2.5' pipping exhaust,high performance sparks plugs and cable, short shifter, b16 trans-gear, gutted interior, no ac, no power srtearing...
    this crx is alot lighter the the orginal car..

    what would be the outcome..... please let me know.

    the bov and shot ram do nothing for performance so i'd say that i think the crx would take the wrx hands down....gutted interior motor swap and work done to it....

    What kind of Cams is the Crx running or do you mean Cam gears? Personally...i think if you get the launch and hit each shift good....you could probably take him. If you both launch good...you should be taking the lead but if he out launches you then i think he'll have the lead all the way. But thas just my guess.

    But my bet is on you (WRX) that you can take the crx. Just get the launch and don't miss a shift and lets see that tape already

    If that B16 is Turbo'd then you're toast. I went to the track last weekend and this guy was running a B16 Turbo Civic w/ FMIC doing low 12's.

    Other than that I don't know because I don't know crap about engine swaps and stuff.

    a crx weighs what like 2000lbs or so stripped would make it say 1500 with a motor swap that's 170hp or so with those mods say 220 i dunno honda's well

    220 in a 1500lbs car vs
    250 in a 3200lbs car


    mod estimations or simples guesses

    depending on the type of b16, its putting out 160hp (if its an si motor) with those mods he has 180 AT BEST.....

    i once raced a guy who was in a crx swapped b18c turbo... and was talking a lot of smack.. enough even to make me think i might lose.... he said he ran mid 11's which i just couldnt believe.... anyway, this guy lined up with me and i destroyed him.. by countless buslengths... we did two runs like this.... then he raced my friends mustang gt auto with some mods... and he beat him also....

    some of them can be VERY fast... but for the most part i dont think you should sweat it...

    Nice kill, but you should have launched from 4500rpm's. You would have SMOKED him.
