I have said this a million times but differnet motors are better for differnt applications. It depends what you are going to do with the car daily, autox, roadcourse, drag queen. Then decide what you want to do build a motor, boost it, show car, n/a setup, just i/h/e. You also have to make the decide the cost effectiveness of it all. Is it worth while to buy a new motor and pay to have it swapped or spend your time swapping it.
You should decide what you want to do with the car before you start wasting money on things that won't benefit you. Then again if you just want the bling of saying i have a JDM motor (in other words i spent 3500+ install to gain 40 hp) then get a b18c

im with ^^ i spent 4000 for my JDM B18C....its a great engine, dont get me wrong, not a single regret but hot damn was it expensive.

not only that, but then you have to decide where you want to go with ur engine and your setup....

make some decisions, HP...? do you plan on any sort of FI??

Im not saying you shouldn't buy it. just if your goal is a 200 hp motor or whatever they put out there are cheaper/easier ways to do it.

Why go for 4dr when you can alway goes for a 2dr. I just recently bought my 90-91 integra rs for 600 buck. Not a bad deal, huh? What type of motor did it come with? Mine came with a b18A. What are yours plan for the car anyway?
