Default 2000 Integra Motor Swap?

I have a 2000 Acura Integra. I recently bought it and stripped it completely. I have sold the engine and I'm looking to put a new one in it, basically for more power. I got a great deal on it. Power everything and anything you could want for $500. The only thing I didn't like was the mileage on the vehicle, 217K, so that's why I sold the engine. I want a Type-R but I figure I can make mine faster than a type r so I dont need one. I've researched engines and I've found one I want to slam into this car...So finally my questionWill this engine an R34 Skyline engine fit into this car without any major problems? Here's a link: for your help!Ok, 10-4. Next question...Do you have any other ideas motor wise...Doesn't have to be Honda or Acura either...just something FWD I dont want to have to convert it.

the awnser you want to hear is yes... the motor will fit and work fine with all the wireing and modifications...but if you not a master mechanic..and by master i mean your going to have to convert the car to rear wheel drive...than i wouldn't recoment doing this for a swap...if you want a lot of power and to take out a type r i would personally do an h22a type s swap into your teg. then fully build the bottom and top end and slap a greddy t3/t4 turbo on it and run about 12# of boost.

First off a skyline is a rear or awd drive NISSAN. It's motor will not fit in a honda, period. Typically the only motors you can swap are honda made FWD motors like D, B, H and K series motors. If you want a serious powerhouse then forget the H22 unless you plan on making it an H2B becuase the tranny that comes with an H22 is horrificaly slow. Look for K20 motors from an RSX. They offer the best potential to make serious power. They arn't cheap but if you got the paper then thats the motor to turbo and start tearing up the asphalt with. Check out and read what they have in their forums on motor swaps.

Dude your crazy however with 10,000 dollars then maybe it's possible. My crazy friend just like you put a RB25DETT( R34 Engine) into his 240sx. He was rich so he didn't really care. However the bill came up to like 9,800 dollars plus taxes. But I think that it's easier to put the skyline engine into a 240sx because of the same manufacturer. However here are the things that you might also want to buy if you really are going to do the swap, the engine, the tranny the harness, the ECU, the AWD thing becasue the integra is a front wheel drive, and you need to cut and weld the front becasue of the size of the engine. After all that and putting it in you need to take it to the shop and have them make the car run right so it doesn't run all crappy.

R34 Skyline= NissanDont get me wrong you could swap that engine into the teggy, if your pockets are EXTRA DEEP and you got all the time in the world.For the integra, since i love this car, go JDM K20a. K20a is basically the new type r engines that comes w/ a 6 spd tranny.Your best bet.. esp for a 200+ engine and a fairly light chasiss. k20a is the best way to go, and while your at it, put on the JDM FRont End.

I would say that you should definitely go with the K20a motor out of the RSX type S. It's V-Tek and a really great motor. They have the potential to produce a lot of power N/A or boosted. Have built both setups. Good luck. GTR 34 is nissan so it's not going to fit into an Integra. I think I said that the skyline motor will not fit into the teg and so did some of the other people. DO YOU READ OTHER POSTS BEFORE COMING UP WITH A COMMENT MORON?

Not trying to be a dick or anything but these people have no Idea what they are talking about. First off, No, a Skyline engine will not fit into your teg. I have seen a Civic hatch made into a rwd with major mods, they put a S2000 engine in it. 2nd of all, you have to have about 10,000 to swap a RSX-S K20 in your teg. Please dont go H22 either, slow, very slow. As for possible swaps...ask your self this, Do I want Vtec or not?...Am I planning on boosting later on down the road? What are my tourqe goals? what are my whp goals? As for me, I totally rebuilt my LS motor from the ground up, I mean everythhing. and I boosted it and Im easily pushing 300 whp+...heres a good site for tegs
