I wanna see that Dyno sheet, it would make a good point in one of my posts. But any way what size wheels do you have on your car right now and what kind of tires are you rolling on (lol)

If you need better traction put some slicks on that beast. And i agree I need to see the Dyno sheet to belive.

I dont belive it before i see it.A 166 hp gain from only a supercharger is ALOT on a small honda engine,and if your engine realy is making 257 you would realy have to have some high compression pistons,and high compression pistons aint a good option with a sc/turbo!But maybee your right.

But its always a good option in the imagination, where these dyno numbers where made

ehhh it could happen those b blocks can hold quite a bit of pressure but i wouldnt wanna run around in a car with s/c with that much..... my rule is if ur inline 4 cant make 200 hp at the wheels iwth out s/c it doesnt need one ...what you need is a new motor...


i'd recommend doing a frankenstein and taking a b18 block with a h22 head. turbo it and u'll kick a mustangs ass

As with ANY FWD car, traction is always a give and take on how streetable you want the car.

The BEST traction you can get will be via lowering the front of car, and preloading and restricting front wheel up and down travel... IE Bottom out your struts, and chain them down. giving them alot of preload and very little travel.

Then preload the rear without lowering to keep it from squatting durring launch.

Best results will be on slicks.

i would liek to know one thing....

400HP and how much Torque? cuz to smoke a mustang you don't need ponys you need torque and thats something honda engines lack...

if you want a good mix that has good torque and HP go with the CRV block and a gsr head then you put a turbo and boom also slap in a LSD and drop suspension strut bars and stabalizer bars and your car will be great...anything else you want to do to the engine go for it...it will give you the best of both worlds torque and hp and its not that heavy of an engine so not so bad...

but for traction problems best bet would be go look for race tires (they ware fast) very very fast but they will give you some traction, slicks also but most slicks are not street legal...other then that i would say don't put the petal to the floor when launching lol even if you don't have him on the take off you will have him the rest of the way

lol jdmlude its a good mix but the crv block will give you 135 Torque while the b18 will only give you about 110...

And as far as i know superchargers wont add much of a gain unless the car is heavily modified "smaller cars" i would guess about a 50-65 hp increase on his if it were true and torque range would probably be in the mid 200's
