why are you spending your money on this swap? Unless you're doig the work yourself, it dosn't have much of a benefit. You're swapping a D16 for a D16...maybe it's because of mileage? I hear of people swapping in B16's and not noticing much of a difference. To me, this is a waste of time unless it's for educational purposes or mileage purposes.
