    i would get a obd1 b18b motor, lower the compression, steel sleeves, short arms, turbo deep dish pistons, etc. i dont know what the swap involves most likely engine mounts, shift linkage, axles, tranny, a little bit of wiring, etc.

    you have tons of options.
    any b-series boosted will be fast.

    If you have the money, the b18c1 is your best choice... but it is a little more money. it comes with a tranny thats got good ratios on it for boost too.

    the ls and the b16 are kinda a toss up. both are cheaper, but not as powerful.

    Whatever you do, DON'T listen to the guy above who says to lower the compression. The days of lowering to 8.5:1 and running an FMU are OVER!!!! hondata and the likes are out, and street cars are running 10:1 safely, and making a butt load of more power.

    my motor is 9:1 and if it wasn't pre-built that way, id run 10:1

    more compression = less boost + more power
