B16A 2nd Gen in an EK?

Is this a good choice for an EK?

Link

I am looking to spend $2500 - $3000 doing all the work myself.

LMK.

like its been said, its a risk your gona take (buying a motor from them). I would definately test the crap out of the motor before I purchased it, but you cant really tell if its got a spun bearing or something. But usually if there is no sludge build up, your safe (usually).

honestly man, from reading your other timing belt thread, I would hope you have a mechanic friend helping you on your swap. It would suck to have a car out of comission for a few months because you thought you could do a swap yourself.

thats just my .02


oh.. and if your gona spend 3grand I would personally buy a gsr.
