    it will cost less, probably like half the cost, but if you get a 94-95 b18c its not that bad and the b18c is a better payoff i think. but im biased, lol.

    with the B18C it will cost you $3000+ to start with ... then you need to get rid of that tranny for a cable one
    then you have to fuck with the wiring to get everything to plug in and work correctly

    the B16A will cost you $1200+ it will have the cable tranny, and the wiring will be correct for the most part already (you will probly have to run a few wires for VTEC and lengthen a few)

    Both motor are going to need mount kits,and modified linkage.

    If you get the GSR you're going to have to source a cable B series tranny (which the place you order it from can probably provide at a reduced cost((don't quote me on that)).

    I don't think you would be very disappointed in a B16 in a rex,it's light as hell and the B16 will pull it along just fine.The GSR is going to be more powerful,but it cost like $1800-$2000 more,think turbo with that money and you're blowing the GSR away.
