    The big question is what is your budget and skill level in honda swaps....is your hatch an Si or DX? This will set the process back a little if it is a DX like mine (wiring). Get deep in the internet and into the wiring diagrams before you start. There are also a few install tricks myself and the rest of the these guys can surely help with.

    The major reason is your jumping from OBD0-obd2. Save the 2-3 grand and get the b16a1.

    Yea, with about 1500-2000, you can get a port and polish done with all the skunk2 you could want then throw some new rods and pistons and you will be making alot more HP then a ctr plus your engine will have zero miles on it and you will not have a wiring nightmare on your hands.
