Default Would a K series or B series engine be better for a swap into a 96 Integra?

K series. Use the K20A for the engine swap. The k20 is used in the RSX, which is the next gen of the Integra. Integra is known to have B18...But the K20 has 160 and 210 horsepower. Go for the K.

def the K for sure, b series all have v-tec kickin in around 4-5k rpm's and the great thing about K's are that they have i-vtec which will kick in at any rmp range, also the fuel system is much better, and the computers are a bit better due to better technology and they can dump more fuel in than the b series bc of that simple fact, which means less engine bog when youre launching at a track if you dont have an upgraded clutch...plus just in displacement the K's are larger which means they have a higher capacity to make whp.

oh boy here we go again let me first say any shop will charge between 3800 and 5000 grand to do a full sway, labor rates are out of control these days, with out insulting you ,let me be completely honest, if you dint really know much about mechanics a swap really mite not be for you!!! doesn't really matter who does the sway there always some fine tuning and if you don't know how to do it you will be in the garage very often. i tell most people who want to get into a b series dohc engine a great way to do that is buy a integra gsr they made the cars from 92 to 01 with a body style switch in 94 the cars have the bigger b18c1 witch is about the same as the engine you want, bottom line is swaps are swsome but at some point you need to draw the line on how much money you want to dump on it, if money isnt a issue go for it the book time from my estimating system is 8.5 hrs to remove the engine and figure a another 10-15 for wire harness axles, tuning and what not hope that helps thanks adam oh yeah you will need several types of tools a lift and at least 2 garage bays for all the parts

For overall power, get the K20 type s engine. The vtec kicks in around 5800 rpms stock but you can get hondata to bring it down to 4200 rpms.
