    oh my fucking god...


    the 1.8 sohc is a 4g37. it is basically my 1.5 motor with a bigger stroke and less revs. makes ~95hp ~98tq. you're wasting your time. it is SOOOO not worth it.

    I'm not sure if that's what i want to do. I'm trying to locate a b16a3. It seems impossible to find that particular model engine.

    Ok so im not going to swap to the mitsubishi motor. Sounds like its crap. I'm interested in either
    a) b16a3 motor swap or
    b) building an a3 bottom end and a y8 upper/intake. with a 10psi boost

    I'm not really familiar with all these terms yet so cut me some slack.
