the engine has to be the same age or newer than the car it is going into
some places it doesnt really matter they dont have a clue what they are looking at anyway
in places like cali you will get ass fucked with no lube
1) i can goto this swap shop, pay them "x" amount of dollars in depost form, and they said they will search for me.
2) i can play columbo and try and track down a obd2 b16(a2) somewhere in the l.a. where every fucker and their mother
is trying to pull a scam.
im getting a little wiser by talkin to people on here....the milky white cap on the dist. means obd1 right?
I've got a B18C in my SiR EK4. Singapore's rules as sticky as Cali's rules.. big loud exhaust can get u a fine of $500 (@$300USD) Swapping engines can land you in jail and a possible $10,000 fine... but rules are meant to be broken anyway..
use your current valve cover.. n get someone to sand off the engraved B18C for eg. letterings and carved back the B16A2 back... (not sure if you understand me.. write me if you wanna see some pics)
I agree with Pissedoffsol that it's hard to tell sometimes... some friends didn't even know i did a swap until they smell smoke..
