    no point.. just saying to BAR.. it just gives you peace of mind.. knowing that if you get pulled over you're in the clear

    well.. put it this way.. do you want an easy swap... GSR should drop right in with the help of integra mounts, axles and shift linkage.. the k20 you'll need a whole lotta shit and its not as easy to drop in as a GSR.. and alot more expensive than a GSR

    about how much am i lookin at both ways.. and how much abuse can a built b18c take? also wut the hell does eg/ek and dc stand for?

    also maybe im better off gettin a 92-95 hatch, i mean i like the 99 coupe looks better, but the hatch isnt bad, also figured u dont see as many massivley powered coupes as u do hatches ,i also found wiring and engine mounts here.. :: Welcome to Hybrid-Racing.com ::
