Default good idea?

is it a good idea when doing a swap, to buy a motor that came from a car that was Automatic, and just buy the tranny seperately.
Like say I bought an H22 form an auto prelude, and just bought a 5spd tranny, that way you know it hasnt been raced

sounds good.. get a B16 tranny, be untouchable if you decide to throw a turbo on it.

This is the route i was thinking of going when my D goes **** up...I've heard lots of good things...not sure if I wanna deal with the extra weight up front though.

An h22 block is about 30lbs heavier than a d16 block, so the weight difference won't be noticeable.

You might be right, I'll go find the thread with the weights... I don't think a b is much heavier than a d, is it?

*edit: found it.. it's a 23 lb difference between a d16 and an h22. A turbo setup weighs more than that, so I wouldn't worry about the weight.

cool thanks everyone.
Ok another question. Technically what would be more illegal for me.
A JDM B16 with OBD1 (eventhough im OBD2)
or a JDM B18C with OBD2

Since I have a civic, it makes sense to have a b16, but i would have to convert to obd1 which is illegal.
But the GSR is Obd2.
Sorry if this is confusing
