Hey all

Hello, I'm venturing over from the GM forums to learn a little bit about fwd cars and their performance capabilities. When I go to car shows and check out the Hondas I hear "Yea its got a B-BLah-Balah in it" and I never have any idea what they are talking about. So I'm just here to learn don't mind me if I ask dumb questions lol.

Unless you get a H22, well.....naw there is a huge torque difference.

I was going to get a 1994 firebird forumal with the LT1 corvette engine in it but the head cracked after I replaced the head gasket so I said screw it.

 

I am glad my honda is simple. That is one thing you will learn is the hondas are a easy thing to work on if you ever do.

Ls1's arn't so bad. It just looks like alot stuffed under the hood you can usually work your way around under the hood once you get used to it. Removing all the emissions crap like AIR and EGR helps. I live in Louisiana so I dont need that stuff anyway. LT1's.. well thats a diffrent story.

I dunno, I have personal preference building LT1's cause i have rebuilt them many times and if I recall isn't the block like mild steel or something not alumn. like the LS1. Better for building.

 

Yeah both engines in a camaro or firebird looked so stuffed under any hood.

It is so hard to work on.

One thing I hated was the opti-spark system. Those things suck replacing and go out so fast.

The easiest thing to understand about Honda engines is the first letter is a series, usually all accords, or all civics, etc. The two numbers following are the size (17 = 1.7L, 22 = 2.2L)....in case you didn't know.

 

Oh yea, welcome to Ricers R Us...I mean HF :p

The LT1 block is an iron block. It's basically a spin off of the tried and true 350 small block Chevy. They are tuff and heavy. LSX's are a far superior starting point over the ole LT1. Lighter weight and much better flowing heads. Mod for mod they will always out gun the LT1's. The opti-spark or as we call it "opti-crap" was a poor design by GM. You can fix the problem by buying after market replacements. I'm not 100% positive but I think MSD makes the best one.

Ok.. Ok.. That makes sense. Now what are the letters in front of the numbers mean?

It is the different series of motors if I am right.

Yea but they don't stand for anything as far as I know. You just have to kinda memorize them.

Check out Wikipedia.

You'll pick up on it pretty quick.....A, B, D, E, F, H, K....
