Hey, welcome, Spanky. Beatin up on Ex coupes, huh? Then why don't you just find a replacement motor?

Best bang for your buck I think would be the B16, especially if you are gonna be boosting it. DOHC Vtec, and it's a wildly popular swap. Lots of support, plenty of room for it and lilttle or no fabrication needed.

I say Rock the D. But that's just me.

^well said, depending on your budget....if you have a high one id go either b16a2 or a b18 or b20...

if you have a low budget id go with a d16z6 swap.....

d-series for life

wrong generation. but a K20 swap will cost you an arm and a leg...but if you get the right kind and tune it right you will be very happy

as for the 91...get the ZC. i believe its a direct drop in for your car and is a LOOT cheaper than any B series

Actually, it is the right generation.
