That all depends on what engine you want and if you install it yourself... You need to give more info. As you seem to have no clue, I doubt you will install it yourself, so think 2500 plus.

if you do the work yourself its about 1500 probablly for parts plus engine plus your ect ect ect ect ect being parts you have to buy like motor mounts plugs plug wires that shit if you have it swapped around 3 grand try to buy a car that dosent have a motor it can reduce your costs buy about 500 bucks because the worker saves time not pulling the junk engine

now a 95 civic with either a vtec or no vtec motor still go around the same price

engine swap would vary on what engine you are swapping in but expect to get everything done

at least 3k for a complete changeover with labor by yourself

or shop 5k

4500 with labor but make sure you go to someone who has done engine swap before plenty of times and especially on hondas
