where do you live?

 

i have a friend that is trying to sell his JDM B16A complete swap with spoon cam gears for $1500, i know its probally out of your price range at the moment but if you ever come across that kind money i can probally find you a swap for a decent price..

 

but for now if i was you after you buy the car try to find a decent d series engine to roll around on and fix everything else on the car.. of you could try to rebuild the current engine that it has.. mainly depends on what you want.. d series can be fast and cheap to build but i personally like b series more..

 

i think youll get the best help from another member on here, adam.. he just sold his b swapped wagovan and just got a ef sedan that he's building.. he would be able to point you in the right direction with alot of your questions seeing that he has alot of experience with the oldschool civi's
