from what I hear they're kind ofa bitch to find parts for. Other than that and a possible lack of conversoin/swap info, I think it'd be a solid motor.

it's the same as swapping a B16 and all parts from a B16 will fit. All it is is a B16 with a slightly longer stroke.

you would need to get a hydro trans instead of the cable trans it's likely to come with. And OBD2 parts if you need to pass inspection
