so recently my 1st gen crv has been having some starting issues and its been using oil and low oil pressure so i checked around on the local import forums and i found a b18a1 for a hundred bucks went and picked it up and the kid basicly gave me everything excepted a shell to put the motor in haha motor had less then 500 miles after its rebuild but the kid wasnt very careful with the bearing(touched the surface with bare hands ruined the bearing before they even went in the motor) and it ran like poop. i replaced the bearings put some ctr pistons on the rods, slapped my b20b4 head on it and now it has 12.77 to 1 compression which is ridiculous i have to run a 91(best i can get here in the wonderful state of nebraska) e85 mix to keep it from pinging but its worth it im going to pull the prop shaft and have it dynoed my bets on hp is around 200 at the wheels it feels 100 times better than the old 205000 mile b20.
