    so i have a del sol and i want to do a swap. i wanted to be all sleeper and goall motor, but i ended up getting add-ons. what do u guys think.. should i go all motor by dropping a b20 or h22 in the car. or should i just screw it and get an ls and turbocharge that baby.... has anyone done any of these swaps on their del sols? what do u guys think?

    I dunno about the B20 in there, you would need a different manifold to get it in there. H22 you basically cram it in there, have to do custom mouting, etc...LS/T can haul ass, but I just prefer all motor

    Only downside is the added 80lbs to the front end.

    Re-do your suspension and throw on some sway bars, your car will never have handled better.

    H22 would be powerful, but there are two words that would keep me from installing it in any chassis where a B series would work well:
    "balance shafts"
