    and you're buyin' the wrong engine y0. the b16a2 is obd2. you want the b16a3 (the obd1 one) or a b16 SiR II (the obd1 one).

    I got my motor from jspecautosports.com they sell good priced JDM motors. They send axels, but they usally aren't the right ones. Otherwise you need to get a shift linkage. They send ecu and all. ER-mail them from there web site and ask them whats all included in the engine package. The motors are low miles, clean as can be, and they haul ass. I got the JDM SIR II in a 93 ex. It pulls mid to high 14 as a street car.

    yes.

    btw, they dont seem to know what theyre talking about. when you say b16a2 and i look at thier site and see b16a2, it seems theyre attempting to refer to the jdm b16a. minus the 2. a number following the a would infer that its a us motor.

    that alone would have me questioning thier reliablity.

    hey, I just bought a motor from japan direct (www.usedengine.com)
    I haven't gotten it installed yet, my mechanic is too busy, but it looks great and it came with all of the front suspension components off of an SIR2.

    I'll let you know when it is in about how it is working

    just so you know I tried you first but you had no front clips........nobody had front clips and then I found a guy w/a 00si who wanted to sell his 25000mi swap so I jumped.........the point is your sponsorship works

    but I will be needing a h22a in the future and will check you 1st again.......Hondaswap above all others is the way I do it.
