    how about the one thats in it???

    you have a b16- one of the most popular swap choices.

    hook it up!

    ifyou want to go crazy, consider doing an LS bottom end for the displacement

    The best thing about the 99-00 Si and 94-01 GSR is that they both have stock B Series DOHC VTEC motors. No wiring issues, no problems down the road, your pre-swapped! LS Bottom end, portflow valve train. Good stuff.

    What's the fascination with the LS bottom end? They yield, what, 90cc's more displacement, but without the main support or engineering for the 8krpms? I can see sleeving the stock block with a bigger bore and putting in a nice forged piston, but LS? Please help me out, no shit.

    BTW
    For this guy, I'd say the piston replacement and a decent FI setup and tuning would be the best bet. Am I just a clueless idiot?

    b16=1597cc's
    b18c=1797cc's
    b18b=1834cc's


    The LS crank has a little more stroke to it by I believe 2mm's.


    I say with your 2000Si, keep your head and tranny, swap a 1.8 bottom to it
