    with 1k..look for a b18...but keep in mind you will need mounts,shift linkage,ecu,axles,and some various things to do the swap..if you want a little more power without changing weight then do a minime,

    +1 Mini me is really cheap and gets you some good power.

    You could spend the rest of the 1k on some go fast goodies.

    x2 the Z6 is a great engine and can be easily upgraded later for turbo and they take a turbo really well. I'm doing a Z6 swap into a crx shortly with a small T25 turbo for daily driving. And a/c since I'm in hot as all get out Arizona!

    i asked around, everone's saying the b 18b would be best, or a b20
    i got some prices...for a b16 running mint at 180 in all the pistons with the tranny he said he could sell it to me for 1000$
    went to another place they had a b18a i got him to lower it to 700$ without the tranny cause it is already sold running at 190
    i also got told there is a company in onterio that imports motors in from taiwan, he said a b18 with under 5000k would be 1100 with like 80 in shipping, anyone know the name of this company?
    please reply, thanks
