i have a 98 ex and im thinking about swaping in a b18b and turboing it. my question is this, does the year of the motor matter? if i am using an earlier engine with obd I, will it complicate the swap? if it does, can someone tell me exactly what extra stuff i need to do this swap. i dont know if i will be resleeving the block or just using a block guard, but i will definitly be getting new pistons and rods, so my other question is will the age of the motor affect the strength of the block under boost since i am also concerned about reliability.
Yes OBD matters and it is a pain putting an older motor in a newer car because of it.
