Id definitely try the honda first - since it bolts up to the block and has the right pulley in the right place.

You'll have enough work to do elsewhere in the swap, pick the easy compressor

You just have to use an engine that was legally certified in Calif - and then pass the test for that engine.

i heard about that, but on last december i rebuilt my x1/9 engine, i spend a couple dollars on that, but Mark Allison's job is priceless!
he made a very good job on my engine, maybe i need to buy other X' to make my dream come true...
