Re: engine swap question.

Everything will bolt right up if that's what you're asking. You'll also need the fuel injected exhaust manifold. From everything I've read, the bottom end on the JDM b20a carb'd engine is the same as the fuel injected engine. I do know that the carb'd b20a3 has thinner piston rods and rod bearings, but I have never seen anything documenting that's the case with the JDM version. I say try it and see. Even if there is a difference I don't see it causing any issues with a stock fuel injection system. The difference in power isn't significant enough to cause any issues, but you'd want to keep in mind the carb'd engine redlines at a lower rpm than the fuel injected ones. Please post back if you do this, and let us know if there is a difference or not.
