The b-series is dying. Too many bone heads getting them. Chroming them out and putting them on show cars. Therefor becoming rather useless. Too bad I sell it to them I remember we use to get 20 B series at a time. Now we get 3-5 if we are lucky. It use to sell for a 1000 flat complete. Now B series price have been hiked up to 1500-1700 on the avg. I am talking about the first gen cable. The long blocks use to go for 450 now they go for 600-750.00. This is a rare dying breed. There is an article about it on Honda Tuner. What can you do? Alternative? Do H series swaps or LS swaps. B16a is by the most popular swap. The demand is high but the supply now in days is low. So get your B series from where ever you can before it dies out. Lately sales have dropped on the B series. People dont understand supply and demand. Now I see mostly SR20 going and 4G63T. Its more popular I guess to go w/ the stock boosted motors. Other possibility are doing LS/VTEC swaps.
