There are some people who've put up really big numbers with the g54b. The question is whether you can do it and have a streetable car. I'd like to get 300+ hp out of mine but I also want it to run more often than it sits.

whatever do you mean, starquest never brake down :?      LOL  thats ture on any note, 500hp out of any 4 cyl is not going to be streetable 365 days a year.  The more you wanta play the more you gota $PAY$

Yeah, and my problem is one of my cars is a daily driver and the other is the backup car for both me and my wife. I can't afford to do anything to either right now that's going to put reliability in jeopardy. But as to whether the g54b can put up major numbers (like 500 and above), I just wanted to say it's possible.

Umm... why??

What about a VR4 3.0 or Buick 3.8L before that?? smile.gif


Well after reading this. I read up alot about the nsx mtor and it will tear the s*** outta the VR4 big time in any modifcations and as for the buick 3.8 if you stroked out the nsx to 3.8 then nsx will take the buick easily. If I have extra cash I would swap a NSX motor in any day. The head flows over 300cfm out of the box without any port and polishing. I saw a guy pushing 800RWHP on 93octane with mild tuning. And best of all its the most reliable motors have. Unlike these g54b or DSM laugh.gif (reason I say dsm there's a bunch around by me and always have problems with them even a guy that runs mid 10's with his and it always breaks lmao)

saying that fwd drive cant make power or go fast is just plain dumb. thats where my car journey began, twas with a 90 crx, turboed pile of s*** and for under 2k was doing high 12's and still getting 28mpg. do that in a quest. im not hating, this is my secound quest. i just hate when people are so close minded. oh also my opinion is the g54 is a pile. thats why im going 4g63. much more aftermarket support. much easier to fix. and no shitty tbi to deal with. smile.gif just my .02

yeah there is a reason why they swapped a 4g63. its a good motor. the g54b is a terrible motor. that would be pointless to put that motor in a honda.

it's not that it's a terrible motor, it just doesn't have the aftermarket support that all the other motors have.

btw, BMW swaps must be banned too.


Of couorse  :? We don't want to put a fine crafted German engine in our Jap cars.  :wink:
I sure enjoy the M52 tucked under my hood. I really like what BMW has done with their engines. I haven't had any trouble with mine and it's been a great daily drive for the almost year I've owned the car.
Now what about the BMW s70/2 engine, which hides under a McLaren F1's lid?

What about an Acura engine, does this count?

it's always this alphabet soup stuff

SO would I be banned if I put a S2K 6 speed transmission in my SQ? Mated to the 26. It looks like it wouldn't be too hard to make it work.

What about a audi motor. I drove a A4 2.0T FSI, very toqurey car. FSI very big. I mean diesels have been using it for ever. Then comes the new vetts with solenoid valves. The tuning is going to be going through the roof. Then you get varible geometry turbos. The world is changing I think we should too. I mean I have only had this starion for alittle while dont get me wrong I love it. I used to be only american muscle and I wasnt a big dragracer straight line guy. I would like to autocross or even ralley one day. But we should respect what other ppl can put down with number. I'm not a big honda fan. Its the damn ricers that give every one a bad name. Thank god there is on starquests. I know some one that owns a MR2 thinks its the s***, 7g's in the body and paint. Thinks arrowdynamics is the key. Ya if your car can go fast enough to use it. But just my opion.
