Worth it to go back to street legal?
 
I have an 88 DX hatchback with a ZC engine in it. The previous owner did the swap so I don't know how much work was involved in it. The cam and the head are busted and I don't feel like dealing with repairing this engine anymore. I like the car but I want to make it street legal again. I don't have the original engine or any of the parts that went with it. I don't want to spend more than $2500 to get this done. Is this possible?

Are you going to do all the labor yourself?

Too bad for me I don't have any connects for this one. I was going to start calling shops and getting some quotes. I'm just trying to get some ideas so I can sound like I know what I'm talking about first.

I gotta check if that b16a will get the car back to being street legal in Cali. If so and it's less work, I might do that.

Nope, I don't have the time to mess with it.
