Icon13 swap or build

ok so my b21A1 has some bent valves and a loose new timing belt. it hasnt started in like two years. i am thinking of either building the head up after a valvejob, or just replacing it with a jdm b20 or somethin. also if i do that would i be able to use my auto tranny with it?

Re: swap or build

I was gonna say h22 swap since you're OBD1. But if you want to stay auto that's not an option.

Did your engine use oil before you parked it? It might be a better idea to swap to a b20a or b20a5 if so. Also, keep in mind that when an engine sits for that long the seals have a tendancy to dry out. And you will probably have some oil leaks if you don't change them out.

Your auto tranny will work with any 3rd gen engine. You will need to use the flex plate off of your b21a1.
