    Just wondering how hard it is to do a b16 head swap on a b20z? The shop that did my swap wants 1600 (incl. labor and parts) for it.. I saw b16 heads on ebay for around ~500 + shipping. ~$900 labor? What I was thinking was that 1600 also equals the price of a turbo kit, give or take a little. I'm stuck between which route to take. Preferably, I'd like both, but in reality, I'd be lucky if I could save up enough for either by summer.

    the b16 doesn't just bolt on and work. they need to drill the head, get new gasgets, which also need to special order, then install is timely = money. I don;t know if it is a good price or not because I get that shit done for real cheap from my buddy. but the turbo kit is going to cost you a hell of a lot more. Try over 3,000.
