    Yo bro if your on a budget just do a mini-me swap.

    Your in the perfect car to do a mini in, the d16a6 block is the strongest d series block. Just strap a d16z6 head or d16y8 head on your block and youll have a pretty descent whip. Junkyard turbo that beotch and youll be in a pocket rocket.

    Search for mini-me swap!!!

    OBD-1 conversion is an expensive route to go. Just rebuild the bottum end such as hone cylinder walls and re-ring it (new piston rings) and get a conversion gasket set which is bottum end gasket set. New water pump/timing belt and thermostat. If the cylinder head is good then just resurface it and if you want more compression mill it. Will need a new head gasket of course. Good luck with what ever you decide on doing, Peace!
