    come up with a plan
    decide on a budget
    do a fuck ton of research
    revise the plan
    do more research
    revise the plan
    do more research
    revise the plan
    realize that this is going to be 50% over budget
    do more research
    finalize the plan
    buy all of your parts
    put it together
    wash up
    enjoy



    seriously the best thing you can do is to go into this with a well researched, well thought out plan

    I really want to work on a b20 with a b16 head I had that combo on a 97 civic coupe but a fiend did everythin I jus asked him to build it for I have only spent about 2,200$ but I don't feel the experience that I want so that's why I want to start this other project on my own any advice?

    are you going to be doing the wrenching yourself? if not, you're not going to be able to afford it. you may want to consider just getting an older car already swapped with a b18b or a b16.
