    Hi, I am planning the following upgrades in my car:

    first option:
    B16A1 swap
    Manual Tranny
    performance chip
    adjustable cam gears
    lightweight flywheels
    headers
    CAI

    second option:
    D16a6 with D16z6 head (mini-me)
    headers
    CAI
    Auto tranny

    currently my car is on 17" wheels.

    What acceleration (0-100kmh) time I will be expecting on these options?

    The higher teens?

    Theres alot more to it than just that stuff. You have weight, driving skill, etc.

    But :welcome: to CC and you should definitely post pics of your car! :D

    I don't see the competition between option 1 and option 2. Option 1 pretty much is the way to go.

    Don't worry about those ebay performance chips, adjustable cam gears, or the light weight flywheel. You need to beef up your clutch before the flywheel. You need cams to even have a use for those cam gears, and the "performance chips" are always just garbage.

    Save your money and use it on parts that actually perform. The flywheel is an iffy thing on my list, Just depends if you have upgraded your clutch or not.

    Do the basic bolt ons, I/H/E, then if you want a little more power consider a 100 shot of nitrous with a window switch and a tune. You'll see significant gains.

    Otherwise just go turbo. lol

    Yea you cant put headerS on your inline-4. Also the adustable cam gears wont do squat unless you have cams AND get it tuned and your tuner uses the gears for timing. I think you need to just stick around a little bit and learn more before you jump into this.

    Surprised nobody has said it yet, avoid the B16, be ready to be disappointed if you get it, especially in a saloon car too.

    Is the low end power on the B16 REALLY as bad as people say? Cause I myself was thinking of doing a B16 since i can get a swap for pretty cheap... or should I just go with a B18?

    B18 should be the lowest swap anybody should do, honestly.
