    So if you had both, would you choose this over a stock B25?

      Never actually driven a B25, but considering it didn't lose any torque, and it's fun with a 2.93, I would say yes, I would choose it over a B25. Just conjecture though.

        Honestly i would. With a correctly sized rear end. ~3.5ish it would be great. 2.93 is luggy but you get the great tq down low.

        It isnt as rev happy as a 2.5 but its pretty comparable.

        and then its a perfect setup for a turbo

          kind of wish i would have kept my 2.7 block instead of going full 2.5.

              is that a 2.5 or 2.7? 3.25? Sounds nice

                    Have this same set up in my 2002. Before that it was in my stripped 87 eta coupe. Thing was ballsy, although the car was light.

                    I love my 2.7i - if you can piece it all together relatively cheap and get the headwork done and throw a new clutch in, it's really not a bad set up. Like I said, it makes much more sense if you have access to the swap parts ON THE CHEAP!

                        that gauge is bs. I read my temp on my phone via bluetooth from megasquirt.

                            Trying out a different look. Stripped paint from the valve cover, polished lettering with 400-600-1200 grit and polishing paste.

                            Also cleaned up the brake booster plumbing with some NPT fittings and JB-Weld.

                            Ohio => California => Vermont => Pennsylvania => Ohio this summer, still going strong!

                              So you ran flat pistons? Did you use the stock bottom end of the 2.7? Looks super clean! I am planning to do this to my car sometime in the future too =)
