    when it comes to the ease of the swap, they are basically the same. you just need a b-series trans to go with it and a phk ecu (if you plan on leaving the b20 stock). you will also need a conversion harness if you go with the PHK. if you stay obd1, youll defintiely need to get that tuned. I dont know of a stock ecu that will run that right.

    welp, youll need to convert the engine for obd1 if you plan on building this engine. you can scrap the blue print, its been a waste of money for the past 15-20 years. PHK is the ecu for the stock B20B, but with your build, your gonna want a p28 or something along those lines, and youll definitely want to have it tuned (even NA). Also, if you plan on going turbo id recommend using a B16 head cause the b20 head flows like shit...id be willing to bet that a bench test would show the PnPed b20 still under flowing the b16.

    As for the transmission question, im quite sure all b-series transmissions are interchangable (while all the parts are not). One of the civic/teg guys will have to back me up on this. I read a lot, my arena is accord/prelude.

    So the b16 head will fit on the b20b block.. The I could get that pnp instead..And How do I come along on getting the p28..

    ebay, or watch our fs section. they come up quite often.

    you can also get one from phearable.net. just tell em what you are doing and they will burn a chip to meet your needs. after that its just getting the fine tuning down.
