    Anything from 88 to 2000. Take your pick. Anything from 92 up will require an OBD conversion however.

    Also, if you didn't get a transmission with the motor, you'll need to buy one. A B-series engine won't bolt up to a D-series transmission...

    read around a little bit before posting. if you read on this site for 1 hr, you will answer all of your questions. read my sig. it should help. then if you still have questions, post away. we try to let people help themselves instead of spoon feeding them everything.

    you should pick a car that you like before worrying about the engine. just about any car is compatible, so pick one that you like and we will teach you how to make the engine work for it.

    if i were you, i would just buy a b series hydro tranny. save some work and some money and get an lsd. the conversion is ok, but it just adds extra work to the swap.

    good luck with the swap and be sure to post pics of your build. we always like to see new members and young adults get into cars.
