I don't know about an engine swap but you can always try the following. Is it to make your car go faster?1. Have the valves skimmed and grind;2. Have a banana Branch exhaust put in;3. Put in a fuel injector;4. Get another Steering Wheel ;If all fails, ice it with chocolate icing, I think this could work.

depending on your model if your not an EX then a EX swap or at least an EX transmission this shorter gears allow you to accelerate faster and making your car quicker. You might want to consider a turbo or a small shot of nitrous 45-55 dry shot like the Zex system bolt on's intake and exhaust there isn't much to do if your not getting the mighty K

Actually the K20 is the easiest and cheapest. Because they switched years in 2001, the body style is diffetent and they stopped making the B series. So the K series from an RSX or civic SI will be the easiest and most affordable. If you try to go to a b series you will have all kinds of compatability issues, and if you live in a state that has vet testing it will NEVER pass.

try the k20's they are the new thing now...if you do get a K20 you'll be able to beat a RSX and Type-R...but if you want to go turbo you'll be the man at the track hitting low 13's and even 12's on the 1/4...good luck
