    I have decided to go for either the B16A2 or B18C4 engine,and i know roughly what i need, but most people say i will need new axles as well. Why is that? I looked at the b18 how to guide at c-speedracing.com and they dont say anything about changing the axles! Help!

    You need to new axles, They should come with the B series engine, because the B series utilize a halfshaft from the tranny to the drivers side axles.

    I'm sure it won't be too long of a wait if they weren't in stock, like 2 to 3 days to be shipped.

    yeh man i did a swap before and you just wanna use the axles the came with the engine, if you werent lucky enough find some 99-00 si axles, if not get some GSr ones of the sam year, if you still cant get anything go to raxles.com, there pretty good from what i hear.
