    a buddy of mines owes me some money from a previous bet, he wants to give me a block for exchange of money. i have two blocks to choose from but not sure which to choose. suggestions will really help me out. my plans are to swap in one of the blocks in my 99ek hatch. one of the blocks is a b20, but which tranny should i go with if i choose the b20. or a 1st gen b16 w/ racing pistons, port and polish, but again which tranny. i've been lookin into a b16b tranny. again any suggestions would really help.

    a b16b tranny will be tough to get ahold of. get it if you have a hook up though, i would suggest a type r tranny if not. i say go with the b20. there is a lot more torque available and more displacement.
