Honestly? More than you vehicle's worth. Even if you DO land a good JDM engine, installation and mounting is a tedious task that can span a whole day's work for a shop, after removing and mounting your previous one i.e. If a standard shop charges you 65$ + Tax, then do the math at about 12-15hrs of work+parts+fluid changes. Alternatively, I'd suggest you part out your vehicle through craigslist or kijiji, and get another one. A 1997 Civic really isn't worth spending that kinda dough on, get an integra instead.

Im laughing at the other answer... I am sorry but heres for basics.

-Depends on what motor you want, a D16Y7/Y8 is the stock motor for that year of civic and those go for pretty cheap around 250 - 600 dollars for the motor. Labor from a mechanic will be pricey... I would only do it if you are doing it yourself... if you are planning to pay another mechanic please please just sell the car as it is...
