engine gone, swap time

ok, so my engine is gone... i think, so its swap time... i have like 4500 cash on me now and was wondering what you guys would recommend and i am looking to do this within the next couple days... I was just going to put a d16y8 in (I have a 96 hatch cx), but for the money i was thinking b16a2 with the LSD tranny. I was going to get it and build it all motor with cam shafts, cam gears and well a whole bunch of other things... visit the machine shop, etc... but, is this a pretty strong platform for a hatch?

Also, the b16a2 is a jdm engine, how, or does it compare to the 99-00 usdm sir engine?

Also, can I change my gauge cluster to a usdm sir one with the b16a2?

JDM engine don't have numbers behind it. It is B16A, that's it. If you are getting a B16A2, then it is USDM.

alright, cool... yeah i talked to the guys t teknotiks and they set up a packge for me... so i am going to do,

jdm b16 full swap with the lsd tranny and get the ecu chipped from them too. That will be sick. I am thinking I'll be beyond happy with that...

what do you guys think? also, later will be cam shafts and cam gears so i can get a little more power at the higher rpms (i assume if a chipped ecu say has a redline off 9200 the stock cam shatfts will only be making power up to 8000 or whatever it is... i assume some camshafts that broaden my power curve would be ideal if i am looking to rev to 9000, 9200 hopefully... )... any input?

with a 4500$ budget, id grab a usdm type r motor and have it put into my car. you can find the type r motor for 3500-4500 and you are looking at another 500-600 to swap it in.

well, if they are going to do it for 4300 with an LSD tranny and a chipped ecu, it sounds good to me... as well i get new axles and a warranty... plus, i've had a great experience with teknotiks before so i wouldn't hesitate to go to them for something else.

Peter and Charles are correct. We label them that way on the site because that is what most people are familiar with. JDM engines do not carry the 5th digit on the engine code (there are a couple exceptions). B16's are all labeled B16A, regardless of generation.

If someone is trying to sell you a "jdm engine" with a 5 digit code, you can be fairly certain its not JDM.

Should look like this:

When purchasing a used JDM engine, approach it like how you would purchase a used car. You never look at just the price of the car. There are many other factors involved, more importantly the condition of the vehicle and its expected reliability.

Each and every engine is unique according to its condition and mileage. If you purchase a used car with low mileage, no history of accidents, full service records, and no dents or bumps, it will definitely cost much more than a comparable used car with higher mileage, a history of accidents, and a damaged body.

The truth of the matter is, the engine's quality are strictly dependent on where the engines are purchased in Japan and the price paid for them. Like used cars, used JDM engines vary greatly in pricing. Higher mileage, poor condition engines, and engines removed from vehicles in accidents cost a lot less.

As far as what we provide, Teknotik pays a higher price in Japan for better quality engines, because we know our customers don't want to save a few bucks for a higher mileage or damaged engine. At the end of the day, that higher costs is passed on to our customers, but you get a better quality engine.

To clarify, this is the installed price - DRIVE IN DRIVE OUT.

This also includes everything you will need with NO HIDDEN cost. Sure im if you call around over the phone you will get a cheaper price if you ask for a "b16 installed"...buts lets compare apples to apples...this is not just the price of the motor thrown in the car...

- NEW axels (not used)
- Timing Belt and Water Pump Provided and Installed (OEM Honda)
- All new fluids
- New mount (not used)
- All labour
- Chipped ECU (upgraded chip free by request)
- Conversion harness
- Warranty!

also, you said you think you might need an engine, find out first if it can be fixed for cheap so you wont have to dish out so much for a swap!
