What engine do you have right now?

The d15b is an awesome motor, but if you have a d16z6 it might be worth it to just repair it. The d15b puts out a few more ponies than the z6, but the z6 has more displacement giving it more potential...and a slightly longer stroke giving it a more linear powerband.

A headgasket shouldn't be too hard as long as you have a decent manual, and the thermostat takes like 10 min or less.
