ha someone posted about one earlier civic that is i seen the cam come across as
more of a mid rang or top end power curve i dont know if it will have the low end
power you were looking for i could be wrong are you gonna be spraying or using any forced induction power adders if so may be perfect for that.

[QUOTE=carsonGs;1625308]Im a car guy if its fast I like it dont care if its a honda or camaro I meant no disrespect to the honda guy .......

x2! I take quite a few jabs at the ricers.. But I have to give them credit. These kids are working the butt off to be able to afford the parts and it gives them something to be passionate about while supporting the Hot rod shop.

But the Fat tires still belong in the rear.

I agree with you im a muscle car guy myself so of course I talk my trash about them but i expect the same from them its all in fun with me but some people take it to heart btw edelbrock has a nice lil kit for small block chevy in jegs heads cam intake gasket kit ect. claiming 435 hp you know how that goes but could be a easy way to get all matching parts. Just a idea.

I just wanna say sorry If I confused anyone earlier when I was talking about the 383 vortec build. I was talking about the wrong build. Anyway yes I am not getting my roller bored I am keeping it at 4 inch. Why bore it if I don't need it. It's pointless. It's. not like 5 cubes is gonna make a difference. But I am getting all forged bottom end so I might step up to some bigger better flowing heads than the 195 cc AFR like these:

AFR - Airflow Research 1103 AFR SB-Chevy Competition Aluminum Cylinder Heads

with a mild engine i would stick with the 195 thats just me they are a all around good head. You can get to much flow for a engine with a 4.ooo bore and .030 makes a difference and as far as forged bottom end not going to make a difference as far as going to a larger head now if you had the forged bottom end 4.030 bore with some new pistons a wicked lil cam and those heads that would make a difference...with the larger head that means larger cam,more fuel,and bigger carb. which could cost even more money i dont see the gain being worth the effort with the larger heads when you could have the 195s which is perfect for a street strip application when you look at driveabilty and fuel consumption.

I really dont know other then looking at ur parts and knowing what you have and
where you wanna go with the build why dont you start a new thread i would like to see some of the awnsers on that question....also one of the only ways to find out without having a million dollar shop would be testing different heads I guess

I don't remember if we covered this.Take the block into a machine shop and have the bores checked in each bore at multi locations.
