Default engine swap for my integra?

i've been wanting to do an engine swap for a while, and i've come across this engine. It looks like a tight fit but it might just work. And it's a diesel, imagine the torque, something a honda has really never had a lot of. Pictures are included in this linkhttp://people.bath.ac.uk/ccsshb/12cyl/this idea is from one of my good friends at sport compact car forumover a hundred thousand horsepower guys, better get some r compound tires

just make sure that your car wiring box match's the wiring and sensor system of the new engine. please make sue cause otherwise if any of the sensor are not connected you may have some major trouble. also keeping in mind that it is a diesel engine you would need to put on a heater along with the engine. the heater can be substitute. but make sure that all the wires from your ecu corresponds with the new engine or you would have to change the ecu and also the box of wiring for the whole car, in a manner that it is compatible with your engine.

I hope this is a joke. The crank is twice as big as your car! My buddy gots an H22 Integra. The H22 is from a prelude. The car hauls pretty good. No power steering, no a/c, no back seat. It will run a 12 easy with intake and exhaust. Diesel engine in a integra would be a pretty extensive job. You'd need custom mounting brackets, you have to switch to diesel fuel, different fuel systems, ALOT of tuning, but it would be pretty cool to have stacks on an integra, if only there were somewhere to put them?? haha stickin straight out of the hood... the B18C can put out more hp per liter than a supra 2Jz engine. If you build the internals right.

first of all, that thing...is ginormous! but a diesel in an integra? that would be interesting, if you were serious, i'm sure it could be done. second, the supra motor, is more capable of high horsepower. i've seen in magazines the 2jz motor pushing upwards of 1800 hp plus! so....... unless you know what your talking about, don't! ever read the stories about nick and hulk hogan's supra's? fast, thats it, fast.

I guess nobody actually looked at the link, the motor is bigger than most peoples houses. 89 feet long and 44 feet high.
