    The only b16 that comes stock with 168 hp is a OBD2 engine. The pr3 ECU is a OBD0. It's probably converted. I haven't a clue on the 5 series shit or what he's talking about there. I dunno, whats going on, bump for this guy. My guess the guy selling it doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

    Edit: nice find brc, i was looking for that.

    the 5-series b16a sir obd0 motor DOES exist and DOES have 168hp.
