    So, i jus got a 94 2door automatic integra ls, it has 160k miles. What do you think i should do? Should i rebuild the LS engine? Should i get a b18c gsr engine? or should i spend extra money to modify the engine bay and get a h22a engine? Also, do you know the prices of each of these swaps?

    My vote is cast between GSR and H22.

    well, its 2door and automatic and i'm going to be driving it to and from school for the next couple year, so i dont think im gonna be actually racing much, although i do want the best performance i can get with a tight budget. So I'm basically looking for the cheapest way to compensate for the 160k miles. So could you people tell me about how much it will be to:
    1) rebuild the ls engine
    2) get a turbo for the ls engine
    3) buy a gsr b18c engine
    4) buy an h22a engine and the extra equipment to install this engine, (you know, for the extra size and weight of the h22a)

    Having the motor in it overhauled to new status is the cheapest way,but will take longer than swapping,so the car will be out for a bit.The others,mmm...turbo can be cheaper,but not nescessarily better.The GSR I think you come out about the same (maybe a little less) price as the H22.

    You COULD overhaul the LS and convert to manual at the same time,then later on swap in something better,or boost and get the full potential of the set up.
