    Question B16A Build & Swap...

    Hey all I'm new to the boards (and also new to owning a 3g Accord). Last month I became the proud owner of an 86 Accord hatch, for the price of $75. Believe it or not, this car runs fine. It has 231,000 miles on it and a bad CV joint is the only problem... Anyway I work part time at a local performance shop and there are plans underway to swap in a fully built B16A motor.

    What I was wondering is that there seems to be a lot of confusion about doing swaps into 3g cars. Would you guys be interested if I put up a website that detailed the process step-by-step?

    If so, I'll let you know when I have the URL up and running.

    Take care

    Don't forget the most important part: pictures!

    Make sure you don't have a shitty camera and bad lighting. Detail each step and take millions of pictures of everything. I say go for it.
