    so what about the crossmember no mods to it because back at school (lincoln technical institute) a buddy of mine in fuels class had a 91 crx and he had to make mods to jis b16 swap when it came down to the crossmember.

    I'm puttin a b18a1 in mine, cheap and makes good power. It depends on what mounts you are using wether or not you have to pound the lip down so the mount sits flat, not really a mod just some hammer work

    If you're looking for cheap, stick with the D-series. I spent about $450 on my complete engine swap and some mods and I'm able to beat some B-series(especially a lot of the non-VTEC ones). Having a light car really helps. With a built N/A D-series you'll be looking at around 130-160whp with off the shelf stuff. Going higher would mean custom work, thus a B-series would be better. You probably don't even have to swap; but just work off of your stock engine. Plenty of guys making decent power on the non-VTEC heads and if not that you can always do a mini-me.

    If you're going to build it and make some power; you'd want to move up to the B-series or maybe even the H/F(not as much parts) or K's.

    my ef has a b16a with a t3/t4 and i smile every time im in it and its not even tuned yet about 4.5 lbs of boost and it already screams. the sound of a honda motor hitting vtec, with turbo spool and a blowoff is a sweet symphony

    i'm running a JDM B18B with a fully built Y1 cable trans w/KAAZ dif, innovative mounts, underdrive crank pully, fuel rail, FPR, MSD cap/rotor/external coil/wires, custom ITBs, JDM type-r spec header, test pipe, and a greddy exhaust, mine screams just fine for me.
