    sup everyone. i have a eg coupe with a d16z6. i'm not sure what to do. do i turbo charge my stock motor(even though its got 130,000 miles on it), or do i swap a b16a2 in there. Right now i think the best idea is to swap it with the b16, but if u guys think otherwise, please let me know. thanks. btw, i know i'll be 15's with stock b16, and 14's in turbo d16. plus, would it be better to get a new flywheel with a b16(to make it rev faster), would it really make that much of a difference, and also anything will help me, any info or tips on what to do. thanks again

    Assuming your D16 is in good shape and you only have the money to spend on either a swap or turbo, I would:

    Drag - turbo the D16

    Road course - swap to B16

    swaps are nice but turbos have cheap potential..

    You could easily wind up running 16's on a boosted D series, and B16A hatchs have dipped into the high 13's with only bolt ons.

    thanks everybody, i think i've decided on the b16. now i just need to find a flywheel and stuff, but now i have another problem. i've done research on this stuff, but i just like to have it directly verified just cuz of all the info on the internet its easy to get something confused. anyway though, i found this b16a2 complete swap, but it has an ls tranny. now i know the ls tranny has longer gear ratios so it won't be as much torque, but the guy is only asking 1700 for everything where as the place i was gonna get it from is 2450. i don't have the money to be able to do anything more than bolt on's once i get the motor, so what should i do. should i invest more to get the one with the b16 tranny or just do the ls. it's kinda hard to decide, so what do u guys think. thanks :worthy:

    Get the B16 transmission. The taller gearing will kill the power delivery to the ground.

    A couple people in the official DOHC vtec thread on H-T have hit high 13's in 5th gen Si's, not a huge weight difference, but it was really just an analogy, for not being able to accurately gauge your times through an internet board.

    Hey

    Hey,

    I got a B16A for sale if you are interested. It is OBD0. I'll include the motor, wire harness, ECU and some ENJO motor mounts that will fit 88-91 CRX for about $550-$600
