Is that $2200 for just the motor??? Also, how much power does it produce and how can you go about gettin one?CRXtc said:wiring up the engine will be the biggest hurdle, and the engine IS worth it.....unless you really want a B16...if you go that route get a SPOON Crate Motor for about 2200
This statement is wrong so ignore it! ^^^^^j4yd333hm said:shouldn't be a problem with the zc hood, it has clearance for b series motors
Why would anybody buy a spoon crate motor is they arent going to be racing in endurance races? It's just not worth it... And where the hell do you find them for $2200?CRXtc said:unless you really want a B16...if you go that route get a SPOON Crate Motor for about 2200

The ZC hood only allows for the bump on the DOHC D-series motors not for the whole valve cover of a B-series. You will need to shim the engine mounts with washers and longer bolts or cut the bracing out of your hood or use an SIR look-a-like hood for the motor to fit. Especially since we are talking about a B18C5 which has a taller deck hieght I believe than the B16 hence making it a taller motor and having even more fitment problems. The best solution is to get the fake SIR hood from whoever makes it. Someone has talkied about it a few times on this site although I have no idea where you could buy one. A real SIR hood won't fit because of many issues but mainly because of the headlights being different lengths. Good luck on your swap!

By the time you 'build the shit' out of a b16 you are going to end up spending just as much money as a b18c5 swap would cost and you would more likely than not sacrifice reliability.My honest opinion, DONT DO IT! Get a B16, build the shit out of it then turbo it..
Even with the b18c5 swap you would beat quite a few v-8's...Save $$$, kill V-8s and then be proud.
what the hell is that anything to do with reliability, I'm talking about building the sleeve and rods like JG sleeves and crower rods. Its the same price for B16 B18C...BTW when your done building the B16 for turbo and for much less (cost of engine), your gonna kill the B18C in N/A or turbo forms and listen here, BE MORE RELIABLE AND SAFER because of the 1.74 rod ratio..Josh said:By the time you 'build the shit' out of a b16 you are going to end up spending just as much money as a b18c5 swap would cost and you would more likely than not sacrifice reliability.
Stock or built??? Stock the B16 should be high 14 - low 15........B18c5 should be in the 13's.twofacedsir said:how much better times do you think the B18c5 should do against he B16? This being N/A for both engines.
