Hows it going guys, so any ways,


Ive been getting into swaps lately, as in reading about them and studieing and such, and I am becoming more and more interested.



Im planning on swapping out a mazda mx5 and throwing in a ford 5.0 302 SB in it, but not for a couple years.



But on the other hand while im at it, I would love to have a car to work on, because I dont need trans. cuz I can walk to work its so close, So I was planning 0n getting some kind of honda, prolly an integra, but Im just wondering what swap I should choose for the integra, Im definatly gunna buy a JDM motor on the net, but IDK b16? h22? k20? b18? AHHH ... idk......But I have exp. turning wrenches and such and This will be my first swap, I just want to take the time to do it perfectly right, even if it means spending more money if thats what it takes.

I would love to have a sick teggy or a clean hatch to show off and shit.



So what do you guys think, OPEN TO ANY IDEAS, COMMENTS >> Etc.:bash

First off an HO 5.0 in an MX5 would be pretty fuckin' sweet, especially with a cf roof......Second JDM engines=no better than American when everything is said and done........Third if you want to swap a honda, get something cheap as fuck, light as hell and throw a b-series in it...The whole swap wouldn't be that costly and it would be fun....Now if you have an ungodly amount of money to spend, I'd get an ek hatch and k-swap it......all this is just me though....Only you know what you need to spend, hp gains, and all that bs....Just remember though, google's your friend.

you cant go wrong when putting in a b18c or b16 into a civic hatch. I've heard that there are quite of bit of extra parts you have to buy for the b18c though... But im not positive... A friend of mine bought a b18b though, and there was a crap ton of extra stuff he had to buy for it..
