Default Ok well, I am about to get a hatch...

I have a turbo'd Corolla now and I am about to sell it and get a hatch...I am not all that honda-literate, so I need some advice. What would be a good swap that I can do under 4k for just parts. Labor is not a biggie, I can get that done cheap.

I first thought about the LS with a GSR head but I heard that may not be good b/c the GSR head is high revv...But then I heard that it would be good power and lots of torque. Honda people clear this up for me please!

id just go with GSR swap, its most straight forward. or get a LS with a b16 tranny.

For 4k in just parts, you might be able to do an H22 swap. I know the parts alone for mine were around that price and I know the prices probably have come down some in the past year.

with 4k you can do a b16a swap or b18c swap which both are very good motors and very straight forward to put in..i have a jdm b16a in my 98 hatch and i did all the work on it with a friend.
