    Anyone seen this about, how much would you say its worth?

    Also its just the 1.5 SOHC engine in there, whats the engines that can go in there, how much about would it cost and is there any way of making these shitty SOHC things go any faster?

    Buying it mainly for a project car as me and my mate are going to keep it purely for the track i think

    cheers lads and lasses

    Just buy it and drop a bigger engine in, mines a SOHC and has been know to wipe out b16's with its mods, any engine can go in, d16, b16, b18,b20 or if you have the cash even a k20, if its clean, itd be a good base . . .

    Looking at the pic, its a VTEC-E engine, so really you won't get much power out of it worth talking about. As gumbar said, a bigger engine would be the only way.

    so whats the cheapest option that will give me say 160-180

    Whats work involved, would it use the same gearbox or would this one blow up with any sign of torque?

    160-180 your after a B16 conversion mate or a D-turbo.

    Search on here and you'll find a list of what you need for the swap :Smile:

    B16A/2 can give you that amount of power, they are 160 std with good mods you can make enough power, and i got one full conversion forsale with stainless manifold, auto technic intake, and Integra flywheel with new excedy clutch, let me know if you interested, Amer
