I'd go for the B16A.....lot more HP than the ZC, and doesn't cost nearly as much as the B18C.

Even though Sacicins calls the B18c the "holy grail of the B-series" it'll end up costing you way more than that $3,000 sticker price.

the B18 is expensive...but the entire thing (engine, wire harness, axles, tranny, mounts, everything...) can be had for about 5500...depending on how hard you look. theres a site where you can even add an LSD and they'll install it for you for just 200 bucks. then find a B16A head for 500 and put that on...you'll be set for boosting at just over 6k...a LOT cheaper than some other options you face that will match it

edit: oh yeah...the site...http://www.jdmcustoms.com
