You can but you'll need to get it BAR'd for the B16 can't really say for turbo.

for motor swaps you can go NEWER but you cant go can put a 1996+ engine in a 1996 shell but you cant put 1995 engine in a 1996 shell. so if you can find a 1996 or newer b16a, you can pop it in.

you need to find a turbo kit that is california legal for the b16a.

The engine has to be of the same year as the chassis or newer, must have all of the more restrictive emissions equipment, and the turbo kit has to have a CARB E.O. number attached to it. Or else, it's illegal and will fail.
