turbo d (sohc) is a blast, but i am now trying the non-vtec dohc route. Of course, there is nothing like a b16 in VTEC at 8500k

well if its at the junk yard for 200 dollars and its in fairly good shape, def buy even if u turn around and sell it. Just a bit of advice, before undertaking anything big like a swap, make sure u do ur research and people on hcf will be happy to ehlp u, just try to use the search feature first
