Default ive got about $1,000.00

what would be the most bang for my buck, ? do a complete valve and spring and retainer r&r? the main thing for me is (4 those who dont know, i'm replacing d15 w/ b16a in my '88 hatch) i want to do the most productive things i can with the motor out, ie; i already have new clutch kit(hopefully the right one?) i'm deffinately installing new oilpump and pan gasket, i.m. gasket, is there anything else to do to the lower block other than pump and gasket? is a thin head gasket safe, and worth the effort? do really gain compression with thin gasket? not much time left

go with blox stage 2 cams, and retainers and springs. that might leave you with about, then try to get some headers, or an intake. ill tell u what though, when i got my b16 and i had a g i got headers, intake, and an intake manifold, and brake pads(needed brakes) anywas all that was $820.

with stage 2s, youll need springs and retainers. get those now, and maybe a set of type r valves, that way, you can add cams later without any worries.

yeah! ordered yesterday. springs, retainers, valves, waterpump, oil pump, t-belt, thin head gasket, hondata im gasket, gasket set for the rest, crank seal, cam seals, and pretty soon i'll have the cam also. dont know the cost just yet, the guy is workin on it monday, but i think we may be using all crane stuff. did i miss anything? or have i just about got it all?

I was gonna say water pump, but you already got that


We all know how fun those are once the motor is in.

it appears to be, looks almost the same as the d15 thats in there now, but really i have no idea what to look for. the new does have an ark where a cable would terminate, below a bracket.
