    The B series will drop in pretty easy. B18 will give you more power (if you are going to modify and tune and all of that good stuff) Grab a GSR motor.

    B16's and B18's will be the same amount of difficulty to swap. They both are pretty comprable, in hp and tq. You get a little more out of the b18c compared to a b16a, but you pay a little more for it. If your looking for 200 crank hp, you should be fine with a b16 if your running a 50 shot.
