    what do you guys think of the mini me swap on a d16y7, i have decided that im keeping the engine and not swapping to a b series. i was thinking on the mini me but dont know if its worth it. i will eventually be building the engine then turboing it, but thats far off in the future. Or should i just swap in the ex tranny replacing my tranny. i am an auto tech major in college so doing this work wont be a problem.

    me and my cousin did the D16Z6 on his 90 crx and its great... fun to drive, good power, have a few idle issues and still needs to be tuned... but its def a build id recommend.

    well then i was thinking of replacing my 5spd with the tranny out of an ex, but in the long run i dont think it will be better, i figure with the turbo staying in gear longer would be the better choice

    i also got my eye on a crx with a blown motor deffianatly feel like droppin a b16a out of a sir in there

    im just trying to make this car a quick contender, i dont plan on taking it to a drag track, if i were to race it it will deffiantly be autocross, rather than going in a straight line,

    all my buddies drive vdubs and there all alittle quicker than i am, but on the same token i dont have much in my car yet, smokin some vdubs would be nice
