    If the choice is between dropping in a B16 and leaving it stock vs modding a D16, I would turbocharge the D16 and call it a done deal.

    ok my goal for the car is simple. I want a lil mower power like around 150 or 160, FOR NOW. after i get out of college and gas isn't an issue i have full intention on slapping a turbo on the motor. as for now i was lookin at new flywheel,clutch,exhaust mani.,intake mani., CAI, and a complete exhaust system. what would that yield whp wise??

    I would also like a little more top end power. i got great 0-90 time but aafter 90 it doesn't have much power.

    well, since you don't need to go over 90 because it's illegal.

    get a turbo kit. don't waste money on intake manifold or intake. just a turbo kit and you will have enough power. you can get 200 hp to the wheels with a turbo and good tune. the other stuff might add a couple hp but aren't worth the extra money.

    if your lookin for a good swap put in a b18c1 full swap will run you around 2,400 and still will have good gas mileage and put you at 170hp and b16 are torque less at least from every one i know that has one

    for the b18 to fit into a civic all you have to do is change the back motor mount so i figure its the same for a delsol...not for sure on that but you can buy a whole front clip with tranny axles ecu...ect for about 2400 like i said before... i will find the site and send you a link

    alright thats cool man, 2400 doesn't sound bad at all i was lookin at 3000 as the lowest price, but that would be great if u could find the link.
