Well. If you flip the cams.... Wouldn't that mean the exhaust will need to be the intake? Pulling air in through the wrong side? Also.. how effective is the water pump and oil pump if its running backwords???

6 speed box options.

I only know of d series 6 spd box (shi.ty. gearing)
and K series came out with a 6spd.
Remember.. K series runs clockwise. Prob wont mate up to a b series..
SO..
Frankenstein a d series (real pain)
Or go with a k20 or k24 :P

This engine was built by Keith Mcmullen in CIT in cork, it has been made rotate in the clockwise direction so a conventional rwd gearbox is bolted to the engine.

circa 220-230hp i'm told.

Keith builds a standard rotation engine for civic's/integra staying 1600cc with power up to 235hp,

they have been well proven in irish rallying.
some more talk on page 3 , rotating pistons ,custom cams , dry sump , tensionor changes ...
