    after mounts, axles, and all that it comes out to a lot more than just $2200 though. you can get the B16 into your car for $2000 after you buy all those parts. plus with the b16 you can keep your factory options like ac and power steering. after you put the h22 together and installed you are getting near the $3500-$4000 range. you can get a good b-series turbo for another $2000 and be at the same price range with a much better setup. but thats' just me.

    have you ever driven a B16 equipped civic?
    sure they're cool as long as you're over 5.5K
    installation of the H22 should be the same price except for the mounts(500) and the shifter cables ($175 tops)...

    and you can boost the H22 for the same price as boosting a B16
    boosted B16 = 225 - 250 range?
    boosted H22 = 300+ range?

    whatever floats your boat, but i wouldn't knock him for choosing the H22

    oh no, i'm not knocking him. I love h22 eg's. i was just thinking of sticking with the jdm theme since it is rhd and all. my old coupe had a b16. needed way more tq. like from a turbo kit.

    don't forget about axles for the h22. i just think turbo b16=$4000, turbo h22-$6000. those are just rough estimates though and could probably done for way cheaper.

    but like i said. good luck on the build, we're here to help.
