    For the header issue, it's only harder if the engine is a tight fit. For a B-series swap into a 95 Civic, there shouldn't be any issues. Just buy a header made for the engine, not the chassis.

    As for the intake, most aftermarket intakes that are made for the chassis should work, some might require a bit of modification. If you want a perfect fit, bolt-on solution, then look towards AEM or Injen. They both make intakes specifically for swapped cars...

    It all depends on the size of turbo and such, but I'd say the B18 would bring in more power. That said you would have to build a motor for turbo, and swap. So if you just built the Z6 it would be cheaper in the end.

    You're really flying your noob flag today. If you plan to turbo, then you skip the cold air intake and header. Neither of those parts get used with a turbo setup...
