Default Is a 1992 Acura Integra a decent platform to modify?

As far as a sport compact is concerned, is a 92 Acura Integra a decent car to modify? I'm not talking about ridiculous spoilers or gaudy body kits, I mean, is the B18A1 motor in these cars good to build up? Can I get 200hp at the flywheel with bolt ons, or do I have to go with a power adder? If the motor is built correctly, will it still have this power reliably? I've got a Ford Mustang that is my sports car, I just would like to try something new with a sport compact. Does anyone have good information or links?

the b18 is a good motor to modify, theres alot out there to do to those motors, even as far as bolt-ons. if you got enough money, you can get alot more than 200hp just with bolt ons if you have any questions you can email me hondacrxkd@yahoo.coma few sites i would recommend are:, www.andysautosport.comhope everythings good for ya bro later

There's a site dedicated to the proper way to turbocharger a four cylinder Acura or Honda.You'll have to do a search for: G2IC Turbo GuideIts very informative. Also, if turbo is what your're looking at buy the book - Maximum Boost by Corky Bell - its a bit more technical but is designed to be read by an auto enthusiast as opposed to an engineer.There are many performance parts for the b18 - and I don't see any reason why you couldn't achieve 200hp. You are a realist at least - some folks want advice on getting 400hpHope this helps!!!
