    Hi guys I am new to this. I see around that a b18 sould "bolt in" to a del sol. I have a 97 del sol si d16y8 (slow) will all b18s fit? Do i have to look for obd 1 or obd2? Will the motor mounts in car support new motor? any other info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    the easiest, most direct swap is to get a 96-98 b18c1 USDM GSR motor.

    1. Yes
    2. Hmotorsonline.com
    3. If you get the USDM harness, you won't have to cut/add wires because of the RHD issue.

    You will want a new ecu when you put a new motor in. Just buy the complete changeover, it will make things much easier.

    its not cheaper

    it will cost a fuck load to actually get it in the car (mounts, harness, converting to a cablle shift linkage, axles, etc)

    it will also hurt your cars handling ability

    if you are mostly concerned with straight line performance... then go for it

    if you enjoy hard cornering... fuck an H series swap

    even if you are interested more in straight line id go with a boosted B series before i did an H

    now you have to decide how much you want to spend and how fast you want to be ....
    B18B = less money very fast for a street setup
    B18C1 = more money very very fast for a street setup

    use b-sereis mounts.

    d-series are weaker, although the same positions.
