Any decent sized auto shop can get it for you. If you plan on having a mechanic do the labor, they can get it too. Anybody in the auto business could probably get it. This is not a big problem

If you're not familiar with this sort of work, you would be better off if you went to a local speedshop and talked to the guys there about a turnkey installation.

That engine is going to cost a bit. Have you considered that you will take a hickey on your existing engine? You might find it hard to sell for the money you need.

Or just trump the whole idea and trade your car for one you like.

Engine swaps can be VERY expensive and you might not like the results

Talk to a car expert and see what engines can fit your car and then go to a junk yard and look for a car with that engine in it most cars in a junk yard are not always damaged in the front some are totaled from frame damage.

Most shops & mechanics can get it for you. And you can also check on Craigslist or just ask around. The K20A Vtec is a good motor. It has anywhere from 160HP to 222HP, depending on which one you get. For example K20a from 2002-2006 Acura RSX has 160HP. And the K20A from 2007 Civic TypeR (FD2) has 222HP. This is a good motor. But just so you know, to swap this into your car will cost $5,000.00 for just the motor.
