    What do you guys think? It'd be a good replacement until I can afford a b series. I believe I'd still be able to run in the stock class in autocross too...I think, not sure.

    if your current motor is fine, its a 100% waste of time and money if you plan to do a b later.

    Remember my motor is burning a quart of oil every 200-250ish miles. I'm driving 70+ miles a day. It'd be nice to have the piece of mind that it's not going to just die on me.

    Nah the oil isn't a problem. I just buy a 12 pack from costco for like $20 + tax. I don't plan on fixing it, but any ideas why it'd be burning such a large amount of oil?

    lol...

    ...but your engine should be fine- if its burin oil though it might build up in your Cat and the rest of your exhaust system though- Not sure If you have aftermarket exhaust- but if you still have your stock setup id put that on there for now- just keep checking the fluid level and it should be okay.
    It'll be ok for now - but save that money and wait to get what you really want- you will be much happier then :)

    wish i was over there bro, i'd help you with the swap.

    OH and BTW .... 50th post WOOOOO!

    Nope, I just have the stock system.

    Help with a swap would be greatly appreciated. How many swaps have you done?
