I have a d16y8 and I'm thinking of building it. But there is something sexy about a b series to me. Would it be worth it to get one? or should I stick with what I got. What is the HP potential of a y8 if properly built.

if i had to swap in an engine, i'd go GSR or H22a, probably the H though. Torque ftw!

maybe an obdI b16 for around 2k , and about the weight its not really that much of a difference maybe about 50 pounds more so its not that big of a deal , a friend of mine has an eg6 with an h22 and it handles just as good as my ek with a b18c

around50-75lbs when said and done, nothing really. B16 is a nice little platform to start from.
