    depends on what you want to do, turbo, n/a do you want vtec do you want a bunch of tq? do you want Hp do you have a lot of money to spend? answer those and maybe we can lead you in the path. me personally i would go ls then go ls/vtec or if you not into taking apart an engine just go b16 or for the more bang for the buck go b18c1/5 :D

    i still say the LS.

    I hate b16s, if you wanted vtec don't waste your money on one of those peices of junk (sorry guys, I hate those things), at minimum go with the GSR.

    Turbo LS's put down nice power with stock internals.

    Turbo GSR's are insane.

    b16. period.

    if you want more power it's only a block away.

    Defnitly go with the LS or GSR. Why start with 1.6 if you're gonna upgrade later.

    MY PROBLEM IS 99-00 B16 BOLTS RIGHT UP BUT ITS TORQUELESS
    B18B LS BOLTS UP BUT WITH A COUPLE THINGS NEEDED...
    BUT THE TORQUE BACKS UP FOR THE HORSEPOWER

    THIS IS GOING INTO A 98 COUPE.. AND WAS WONDERING
    HOW HARD IS IT. OR WHAT PARTS ARE NEEDED TO SWAP

    you can either

    convert the motor to ob2
    dizzy
    injectors (not sure if you have to)
    few miscellaneous little sensors

    or

    convert to obd1 whihc is a much better choice. You need a conversion harness and a couple little parts. I never had to convert so someone else can tell you exactly what you need.
