Whats your price range? I am guessing you will have someone do the work for you so just add 1000 dollars to all my prices.































B16 swap 160-170 horsepower(depending on generation) 2,000 dollars for just the swap.















B18(LS) Non vtec 140 horsepower 1000-1500 for the swap. Still a good engine even though no vtec















B18C1(gsr) 170 horsepower but has more torque then a b16. 2500-3000 for the swap















B18C5 (type-r) 190 horsepower 4000-5000 grand for the swap.















B18C (JDM type-r) 200 horsepower 4500-5000 for the swap.































If you don't know what I mean by swap I mean Motor,tranny,ecu,wiring harness, shift linkage, etc















You will still need to buy some mounts by HasPort or similar which cost another 300... I left out a lot... Just to give you a start.

Sky is right but he forgot the B20 (from the CR-V) and the H22 (from the Prelude) will also fit. the last one will need some modification and I only recommend for straight line performance (on a closed course!!). Handling will suffer with the H22, but you'll have big power and big torque. Still the B-Seires are your best bet since they deliver the goods and are designed for that chassis.
