    has anyone seen the AEM boneville salt flat racer the ex with the b16 swapped into it? I saw it so i know the swap is possible, what i dont know is how or where to find parts to do it. I know the k20 swap is easier but i really dont have 10 grand to blow on a swap.
    Does anyone have info on the swap?

    i also heard it was illegal being pushed as an issue but arent all motor swap for the most part.

    It's illegal because you're putting an older engine into a newer chassis.

    You're going to have a more fun time with the K20.

    More displacement, more torque, better power and torque curves. It's just going to cost more.

    Is it illegal.. yes... does anyone care? only if you live in CA.

    I had an 89-92 engine in my 95 civic.I passed smog with ZERO issues.

    Maryland's law says that it's illegal. Does anyone care? no.

    unless of course you live in CA.....
