    Sup im new to this forum, and i got a need for some advice i have in my car already a:
    d16a6
    Tanabe exhuast cat-back
    cold air intake
    fuel pressure reg.
    Msd coil
    Msd dizzy cover..

    Now i have the d16z6 head and intake
    im just missing the
    ecu
    wireing hardness
    and i guess V-tec controllers..


    NOW i also have a b18a full engine that i got from the junkyard for 80 bucks..:D
    no tranny
    some of the wireing hardness..dont know how much i need
    intake and ecu

    So, i guess i question is which is the better deal do go with, i got a budget of about 2,500

    is it worth it puttin money into the b18a or doing the minime swap a6/z6 building, also i wanna turbo either one sometime inthe future so keep dat in mind

    Do you plan to do this work yourself? Are you going to rebuild either of the motors before boost? What are you going to be doing with the car? Does that $2500 include the cost of the turbo and accessories?

    A little more info, and a whole lot more grammar/spelling work, and you might head in the right direction.

    If you intend to use the B18, then you'll need to source a B-series transmission as well...
