Does anybody knows about any race/event were this engines compete?
I am talking in full race mode (no turbo, NOS or Supercharger) just engine mods with a max displacement of 2.0L. (just inline-4) Can one build a vw engine, 8v, 16v,20v, to match a equally tuned B16B?
I know there are a lot more that just the engine (suspension, transmission, tires, etc,etc) but I am talking about "raw" potential.
Comments?

anything can be made to go fast if you put the time and money into it. who cares. go out and race some to find out. the b-series motor is the best motor honda has available to tune. thats what everyone out there is using. some are fast some are slow.

Exactly. It really comes down to money. If you can dump thousands of dollars into a 16V I am sure it can compete. It just was never accepted in mass like the b series Honda engines were. But there is no reason that a 2.0L 16V would not be able to compete if the money and research were put into it. It has more displacement, therefore it has more potential to make power.

So let´s say I get a A2 golf, or better yet a rabbit, get a 16v 2.0l engine...put in the engine and trans plus suspension, let´s say $6K, i will be able to run the civics at the local race track?
