    Alright so after months of research it seems like the best option for me is a H22a w/lsd swap :) I have a 95 integra LS. It will still be my daily driver, but I want weekend warriors options B) I plan to do the swap myself. Besides the basic change (new plugs, wires, cap, water pump, timing belt, clutch) is the anything else I need to learn / watch out for?

    for the price of that swap you could have a turbo setup that will KILL any H22 you come in contact with

    yea, i bought my car with a partially built na motor that i didn't want to mess with, so i put an h22 into my car, but if you've got a good motor, turbo it, i just ended up turboing my h22, and i think its costin me more all together than a turbo b series. but at the same time, i can't lie the h22 kicks ass ha, and you can sell your stock motor and be like half way there or more sp its really up to you. oh in the swap if you do it, i found the worst part to be the shift linkage hook up, wiring is cake if you do it outside the car

    if you buy parts as a package deal you'll be alright on spending, but if you piece the whole swap together you are going to get rapped

    Alright, so everyone says turbo. Should I just build up to a turbo on my b18b or should I sell my setup and get a GSR setup? And why does do most perfer the gsr tranny to the ls tranny?

    a GSR will always put down more power if equally built
    but if you have a goal in mind (and its not retardedly high) it will almost always be cheaper to get there with the LS
    the GSR tranny is closer so you will rev out gears quicker (but acceleration will be quicker)

    I thought the LS tranny accel'd faster and ran out of gears faster?
