    is the mini me worth it? i'm not trying to get crazy hp gains but i'm gonna end up buying a new timing belt and dizzy and i'm having issues with this motor so i figured i'll just do the swap.

    its hard to say i mean if your not gona have much money in it then why not but if your gona be dropping a bit then no, not worth it. i mean you can make a sohc fast but it takes a lot of money.

    not looking to drop a ton of cash in to it. i figured i'd spend as much fixing it as doing a swap so might as well upgrade. i'm getting the ex tranny too so it should make a nice difference.

    You should start your own thread but yes, d15b2 head casting is the same as d16a6. Just swap the cam, distributor, and intake manifold.
