    I would start with the GSR motor, good gearing, 1.8liters, and vtec YoOo.. :)

    I'd definitely say :werd: but you'd also need the tranny for any B series you drop into your EX.

    B18B for now. decent power, cheaper, abondenet(sp). then when you get a little money ls/vtec. close to if not the same as a GSR if done right. AND its a stepped process, so you'll have a faster car that runs that you can later convert.

    he will most likely want to change out the gearing if he is going all motor,
