i like the b15 body style better than the b16. i would like the 200hp in the b16 but than can be reached easily with bolt on upgrades. i wonder what the 2012 spec v will look like tho i hear its going to be redone. to me the b16 looks like every other car on the road. still nice car after all it is a spec v!

B15 all the way. To me the B16 looks small and has no curves, just sharp edges. I don't like that.
To me:
1. 00 - 03 B15. I love the aggressive look.
2. 04 - 06 B15. I HATE that buck tooth.
3. B16.

I didn't care about the HP because that could be changed, but the overall looks can't.

B16 looks like a prius... i like the engine tho, 0 cat failure, 0 screws in your cylinders, 0 head gasket shit.
I like the B15 looks XD

I don't think that any one accepted that challenge yet, so there might not be a definite answer.

Here is the start.

Get a B15 shell and the B16 engine. Hover the engine in the engine bay and mark all the mounting points on the b16 engine and where you have to make the mounts on the chassis.

Make the mounts and mount the engine.

There. You will now have a know how on the mounts.

Do the same thing for the trans, axle and everything else.

After that, sit back and enjoy your now 200hp stock swap.

Dude.. you asked for a start and I gave you one...

You have to do the rest....lol

This isn't something that is a weekend activity. It sometimes takes years before the whole process is complete with all the kinks worked out.

it would be better if you get a B15 block and use a B16 gasket with their internals and reflash your ecu, ull save yourself a lot of time and get basicly the same power
