    I'm looking at a 95 hatch with a b16a sirII from osaka, i've heard bad things about this company, should i be worried buying a car with the swap from osaka if the motor is in and running? Thanks

    About as worried as you should be buying any car. Just because the motor came form a shit company, doesn't mean that it is shit. Check it out, if it's good, it's good.

    That was my feeling towards the motor as well...i guess it needs a new axle but I thought that it may have just been bad, being a b16a in a civic I didn't think it would have recurring axle problems.
