    I DON'T THINK YOUR'RE GONNA FIND THAT MOTOR IN ANY JUNKYARD. CUZ IT'S JDM AND NOT USDM. JDM=jAPAN AND USDM=USA. BUT YOU MIGHT FIND A USDM B16A2 FROM 96-00 HONDA CIVIC SI. OR EVEN BETTER GET A B18 FROM NEARLY ANY ACURA INTEGRA.

    Yeah, if you have to stay in the junk yard, look for a 1990-1991 integra.
