    When I eventually do my swap, I have 2 choices i'm stuck on.
    I want some opinions on what would be the best for an NA setup as far as overall performance with eventually a rebuild.

    I've narrowed it down to these 2 choices. (cuz of the cost :p )

    b16a1 w/ 99-00 si tranny

    b18b2 (need opinions on tranny too) gsr/type-r/99-00 si??

    thank you, have a nice day :spin:

    What's it going into?
    I'm about 99% sure you can't put a hydro tranny on a B16A1.(Someone help me out)

    All Motor-B18C1-Save your green, you'll be a lot happier in the end.

    Boost- B18B w/ B18B tranny, it's got the longest gears which is better for a boosted motor.

    Its not the motor that detmaens the tranny(hydro or Cable) its the chasis.

    You can put a hydro tranny on a B16A1, but if it is not going into an OBD0 car you are going to have to make the engine match your OBD version (and the swap is illegal in some states).

    CCDebt, I can thank this damn hobby and the notion of thinking i was able to pay off 12G's as a fuckin 18 year old serving tables.


    Save your cash and get a 1.8vtec motor. You will be happy in the long run.
