    ok, heres the deal, i got a 94 del sol with a d15b7 and a d16y8 head, well my rings are now bad so my car is burning oil. I am 17 and still in high school (well not for long, droping out this summer to work full time, get my ged and start collage) and am working part time working on computers right now, My normall paycheck is about $500-$600 every two weeks. i dont want to re-build my egine because it's a POS. so i'm gona do a swap. here is what i am thinking about doing.
    setup #1:
    Swap in an f22b $650
    drop in an si drans for a D series with an adapter plate $200
    hook up a single foger wet nitrous kit and run a 75 shot (already have)

    setup #2:
    build a panda d16 with the jdm supra pistons and b16a rods $900
    drop in an si trans $200
    run a dry 75 shot of nitrous (already have)

    I am probly going to go with setup one since it is cheaper and the f22 has alot more torque (more torque the Hp) and it's cheaper.

    what do you guys think, any other suggestions?

    there is no replacement for displacement and the f22 is somewhat buildable in the future.and I have no idea what a panda is either,please explain

    its a d16 with jdm supra pistons and ring (forged from the factory) and with ls (b16a) rods.

    do a search on www.honda-tech.com and type in panda and there is a guy selling a kit. it's kinda cool, and alot cheaper then JE pistons and rods.

    interesting....I'd still go with the f22 there is no replacement for displacement.of course to each his own,it took me forever to decide on a b16a2 and its sitting on a engine stand waiting for me to buy the little stuff to do my swap :blink:
