If you already have the b16, just get a transmission and buy an EX, it will be cheaper.

well you'll need a trans, axles, shiftlinkage and ecu... you can find that stuff for 7-800.. your call.the Si will always be worth more.. but if you like wrenchin on honduhs then just get the ex... or get a lighter model civic if your doin the swap anyway.

If the 2000 si has the performance you are looking for, buy it. That makes infinitely more sense than buying an EX then going through all the hassle and expense of a motor swap. If your looking for more power, the si will be a better platform anyway.
