Depends on if you buy used, new or JDM.

Go to for a list of wrecking yards with used engines. Great site.

Go to your local dealer for the price of a new one.

Go to for a list of JDM engines with low miles out of japan.

Depends if its an SOHC (single cam) or DOHC (dual cam) engine.

SOHC - roughly around $400-600 since it uses the same axles, computer, etc.

DOHC - anywhere ranging $1000-3000 depending on which Bseries engine you get. You will be paying for the engine, axles, computer, shift linkage, wiring..etc Plus side of this, you'll have a very fast/strong car

Hope this helps! xD
