I have an 88 Integra with a D16A1 block in it. I am gonna need a replacement for it soon, it has 211,000 miles on it. Which engine would you guys recommend putting into my car? I know I can get the D16A1 for about $500 and put that one in easily and the B16A1 would cost me about $2000 to buy and have installed. Just looking for some advice on what I should actually do. Also, if you know of any good shops around Southern California please inform me, not to many around where I live. I'm in Lancaster, about 1 1/2 north of L.A. if that helps at all.

Id go b16 if you plan on keeping the car and if you need the number to a good shop pm me and we can chat.
