im currently reading up and learning as much as i can b4 i start doing things to my car.this is my first car and i wanna do it rite. ive researched a lot and ive narrowed my choice of engines down.b16 and b18b1.both seem to be a good platform for a first swap. my car is a 4 door EJ6.all i want for this car is to have a fun car for dd and have a lil get up and go.

B18B1. It will give you decent power and still burn regular gas, which is nice for a DD.
I agree... I drive a 00 Si civic daily and it sucks putting 93 octane in it... i would opt for the b18 to start with that and if your car is not vtec from the factory it will make the wiring easier for your first swap

well it can once you really start getting into motor building... but the B16 requires 93 octane gas because its runs higher compression. basically the higher compression you run the higher octane gas you must use.

250 hp is a lot without boost. for a first swap, i would recommend the b18. its straight forward, fairly easy to do in an afternoon with a couple buddies over, and the engines are pretty easy to come by. if you need any help, let me know.

yeah 200 to 250 is just a range

im goin with FI. i dont want to turbo or supercharge it bc its my dd. i just want a clean setup that has a lil kick to it.after the swap is complete ill look into gettin intake and other parts.i still havent got an engine.tryin to get a good one for a good price.after that ill have to address the exhast, axels, shift linkage, ecu, mounts, etc.and workin at BK isnt gonna get it done.
