    b16a2 tranny = hydro.
    crx = cable

    they wont' be a direct swap.

    the price is good for 1400 bucks... if you plan to build up anyway, go for it.
    if you plan to just do a swap and kinda leave it at that, i'd pass on it- or buy it for the sake of parting it out and making a profit on it :)

    gsr tranny - 600
    b16 head - 450
    b16 block - 200
    all the misc shit - will put you over your purchase price
