    Neither B series is really within your budget,unless you can score a junkyard deal (my favorite).You have the use a B series tranny on a B series motor so no you can't use your tranny.The D16Z6 is a decent little motor.But if you feel you're going to want more power in the future save the money and at least g with a B18B.

    you just might be able to do a B16 swap with 2 grand. i got my B16 for $1800, and it was a complete changeover. i had to drive hella far and jump through a lot of loops but i got it. by swapping it in myself i saved a lot of money. at the end, with all the little small parts i had to buy here and there, replace the axle i broke, and all the fluids and oil i went through i spent about $2200-2300. not too bad.
    just look hard and wide and be patient cuz you might be able to come up on a deal. just remember that you will need to do the swap yourself in order to be near your budget. like the other guys said, you can't use your stock stuff(tranny, axles, etc.). all of it has to be from a B-series motor.

    where do you live? cuz if you live in SoCal i might be able to point you in the right direction.

    it's a B16A2 out of a '96 Del Sol Vtec.

    a shop will put a gen-2 B16 in your car for under 3K, in case you don't know that includes all parts and labor.
    what makes you think you can't find the change-over for less than 2K?

    If it's a B16A2 it's not from a sol VTEC, It's from a 99-00 Si.
