    Hello
    I have an '88 integra LS Special Edition, it has a 1.8 liter in-line 4 DOHC engine, not exactly sure what the engine is, i think the newer models are B18s, the engine has 250,000 miles and just tore up on me, so I've decided to swap it and make a project out of it. I'm gonna need some help though. First off, what engine can I get (affordable) that will bolt up well. The car has all the options (except for the auto tranny of course) Im looking to completely rebuild this hatch. All advice is appreciated
    Peace out
    Tony J:confused:

    if you want it bro you an buy it, ill sell it for $500. it has a broken fuel line and i think it needs a new alternator, but that doesnt matter if you wanted to swap it

    not exactly... the d16a1 is a bit of an odd-ball.

    the closest match is the 1st gen dohc ZC (d16a8/d16a9)

    I believe he said he would sell it for $500.

    Or are you just wanting it for free?;)

    I've seen a 1st gen with a B18C in it. That was so nice. And for NA, fast as hell.
