    It's a old prelude motor, a wiring headache, sensor headache, motor is weak in comparison to smaller motors that are so much easier to swap in a EK, motor mounts (don't think anyone makes any), ECU guessing game, axles, shift linkage, etc.

    Biggest thing is most (if not all) states consider an older motor in a newer car to be illegal.

    Way more negatives than anything else.

    a b20 with a gsr trans is a bolt on affair, also more fowerful, and, and, and, well... the prelude b20.... is outdated... no real aftermarket support for it, in that case, you might as well just go with an h22...
