    There was no cutting or welding for the b18c. Just a little wiring.
    the only fabrication I did was to mount the teg radiator and the exhaust. I did the original swap in one weekend, then the s/c in another weekend. It's not bad if you educate yourself and prepare well.

    A z6 won't be remotely quick w/o alot of work. A b-series swap is IMO the easiest way to relaibly get into the 14's.

    a D16Z6 is SOHC VTEC, you can keep you car OBD1 and pic one up for about 600, and you would just need the matching ecu

    where any thing B series would make more power (30+) than a D series you would have to do wiring, buy axles, get a tranny and if you can find a B18c it wouldnt be nearly as cheap
