It would be a 10 if you are switching from AT to MT on your current car.

How much money do you plan on spending? Go to hybridracing.com and see what they have. They are a specific site for K swaps.

The b16 is a somewhat high-compression engine and if you want to turbo it *reliably* then you'll pauperism new pistons and rods. Thats a noble unaccompanied. The engine and tranny testament run another 1500 quality mounts for a few century. Thats nearly 3k. The turbo, paper, hondata, new outwear and adjust testament outlay you statesman than the 1500 you somebody socialistic after that whatsis.
