    just wanted your opinion about this:

    i have a 1996 civic cx hatch and im swapping a motor and planning to go boost

    i can get a complete b16a2 and installed for about $730US or a complete b18b/gsr tanny and installed for $950US.

    which one would you go with, keeping in mind i want to go boost later. thanx.

    Yup, SiR always 1.6vtec, that is a good deal on a complete swap for a b16, both boosted will give good numbers, but the ls can handle a little more boost.

    LS is what you want. But you should buy the B16 to, you can sell it for more and start saving money for your turbo!

    definitely buy the b16a2 regardless of your decision.....I just paid 2500 for a US 00Si b16a2 complete swap and pulled it myself,30,000 mi. I'd do it again too.

    BUY THE ENGINE,sell it if you must have the ls but BUY THE ENGINE :D
