    B18 or B16 swap... Where are you from and what do you have to spend?

    ive been suggested:
    b20 with b16a2 head
    H22A4(Prelude)
    b18c1(GSR),
    b18c5(Type R)
    k20A2(Type S)
    K20Z3(Si)

    K24A4(TSX).
    ive even been suggested a LS7, according to him he fit it in his '96 but im not believing it. im looking for lightweight without giving up too much power.

    You can put a LS7 in one but your gonna need way more than 5 grand... The K swaps are gonna be close to 7-8 after your done... Best bet for excellent power and reliability is the B18C5 as long as you get the TYPE-R tranny with it...

    Yea id go with the b18c5.. thats about 185hp and 130ft-ibs of torque!

    or!

    F20b swap (pretty much same engine as the H22)
    that will leave you with a lot of money for other great things! plus you'll have about 200hp and 145ft-ibs of torque!


    JDM F20b (similar to H22)
    Price: $549 (Engine)
    Horse Power: 200 HP @ 8000 RPM
    Torque: 144 LBS-FT @ 5500 RPM
    -----------------------------------------
    B18C Integra Type-R
    Price: $3,799.00 (engine, Tranny & ECU)
    Horse Power: 200 HP @ 8100 RPM
    Torque: 134 LBS-FT @ 6200 RPM

    I'm a bit tired i hope all of this was correct!
