    i hate to step on toes and what not.. but for 2k lol.. you could piece together a hmt kit and rebuild the motor for boost and smoke any stock b-series not to mention he would spend that just swapping the b into the car and only gaining a few hp when a boosted d-series is perfectly fine to monkey bash a gsr,ls or anything else

    yes wrong place.

    Maybe think about a used turbo set up for around $2K. It would give you the biggest bang for the buck...

    A smaller turbo that spools up quickly would work well with that motor.

    8-10lbs of boost

    Not much needs to be done to car besides 2.5in exhaust

    But you can run a si fuel pump (or whay ever is better for low $)

    Some used balanced fuel injectors can be cheap and having them gone through is relatively cheap too

    Chip the ecu, tune it and it'll rip...

    But, in general, be prepared to know the in and outs of working on it...or you soon will know..but the hard way.

    Not sure if it 'wont' work but I think its a bad idea to stay auto.

    Keep the motor or sell it...or (if you're so inclined to do so) swap it over to manual

    Just my opinion

    depends, does he want a car that handles good with decent power or a straight line car with big hp, the b16 is an all around good motor, the h22 is powerfull but heavy and alot of mods to stuff it in there... with the h22 you would need new shocks/springs to make it handle decent, so the price of the swaps are also alot diffrent also
