Re: 96 engine swap
1150 for a single cam is a lot! I picked up my d16y8 for 300 bucks with 120 000 kms
even 500 is a lot.
if you do vtec you will need to wire up a knock sensor and run you Vtec wires, other then that its a matter of getting a vtec computer and pinning it properly, or getting a vtec harness with the vtec computer and then it plug and play, just be sure you know that 96-98 is OBD2A and 99-00 is OBD2B little differences
