Anyone got any knowledge of or owned a mid-90s Civic VTi-R? 118Kw from a NA 1.6 is pretty amazing.. but how strong are the motors? As bullet-proof as the G13B? What goes wrong on them?

Any tips on owning one of these or what to look for when buying one?

If its the B16 its a pretty strong motor. Plenty of tuning parts available especially from the US.

And they are at the lighter end of the Honda engines.

I also think when i was looking a putting one in the swift the weight is off set nicely for right hand drive.

Glad to hear it's a strong motor.. anyone got any comments or opinions on the rest of the car?

I'll confess - I've bought one sight unseen from an auction site. 300,000 kms, auction house reckons it runs and drives well :shock: Looks in pretty good unmolested condition. They seem to retain their value very well (even with high kms) so I've either got a bargain or a bomb. Am picking it up on Saturday..

From what I know they are fairly solid cars, not cheap if you break them, but reliable if looked after. I have friends who have had a few Honda's with over 300 on the clock with very little dramas. Hopefully it's a gem for you :)
