Thinking about a swap but thinking my chances of finding a 2.3 16v engine are slim to none. Anyone know where i could find one?

If you do find one and are going to drop it into an 8v chassis, make sure you get all the electrical componentry as well as the 16v use a different ignition curves (EZL), the CIS-E controller is different. Even the fuel pump relay is specific to the 16v (cuts fuel at 7000 rpm).
