    b16, then get a turbo later on. or another b18a will be your cheapest option.

    it's personal preference.

    If you can afford it. www.hmotorsonline.com

    if you have time to shop around, I would try to get one from craigslist or a local parts forum.

    why would you need mounts? it's a straight swap. plus, if the tranny is fine, just get a long block. you already have everything you need.

    it's not that big of a deal. it just depends on how much you want to spend.

    The B16/LS tranny isn't horrid, but it would be nicer to have a nice hydro b16 tranny in there.

    yes it is, I have that set up right now.

    top of 1st at 43mph 2nd at 70mph 3rd at 105 and i have never toped out 4th.

    but I get 34mpg with short ram, skunk2 intake manifold, 310 injectors, header, and 2.5" straight pipe.

    I would say a b16 tranny with LS 5th gear would be dead sexy.

    try building a high compression LS or LS V-tec.

    Ebay has some PCT replecas by nippon racing pistons for $160 shipped. They arent made for big power but they will make great power and hold up to abuse.

    they will put you in 11.6:1 compression if i remember correct and they fit on stock LS rods with no problem.

    with a good tune that will get you to 14s with other bolt ons and cams.

    My J1 is hella short, first gear is uselessly short and 5th is too short for the highway speeds.

    1st and 2nd arn't bad in those. Above that it seems like you have to really wind it out. Come to Columbus and drive my gsr trans equipped car or my type r equipped car, might change your mind. The type r with the short gearing and lsd is the most fun to drive, but it sucks on the highway. I'd say the gsr is the best for DD.
