    i have a 1992 acura integra ls and im looking to swap the engine out with something better. It obviously has a b18a1 (auto tranny) but i cant decide whats the best route to go(vtec nonVtec,B.. K series etc) to get most the most power for my buck. would be a daily driver and the odd track time for fun. looking to spend no more than $3-5g's.. over 240WHP would be cool too. Im slowly learning more about honda/acura and the import world. any help and or suggestions would be great!

    stay with the b18a1 and replace the internals for it to handle the turbo.. ?

    You don't really even need to upgrade internals if your engine is healthy for 240whp... just careful tuning.

    Cheapest route would probably be to do a head swap for ls/vtec, but that assumes your bottom end is healthy too.

    finding a b17 will be difficult.

    I'd probably source another b18a... or if its not damaged, just rebuild what you have and then do an all motor build as:

    it was a fun car. killed b16a hatches all day.
