Should I look into just getting a used d16 or should I swap in a b series motor, I was thinking about a b18b how much am I looking to spend total to put it in I will do all my own work so just parts? any other cheap swaps I should look into. the d series trans needs to be replaced with a b series trans doesnt it?

what are you looking for in this swap. If you want a turbo application get a B18, but if you want an all motor car, check out the b16a2 they will be the best bet for fast car on a budget.
