    well first of all dont go with a b16A. I just traded in my 00 si and bought a 2002 rsx. The rsx is much better. Plus you will not have as many miles on as rsx motor. I dont know if you are intersted in a k20a3 swap (2002 civic si motor) But I will sell you mine because i am about to buy the type S swap. (I have the Base model). The K20a3 is easy to put in and the shift linkage doesnt have to be modified becuase it is a 5spd. The K series motors are actually easier to swap than the b series. All you have to do to get them motor out is remove the 4 subframe bolts, 1 trans mount and 1 engine mount and boom its out! Let me know if you are interested

    Well, the K series sits on the OPPOSITE side of the engine bay. Didn't you notice that when you opened your hood? Its not worth the money to fuck with. Get an 01 teg ls and boost it!

    The K20 is only easy to put into the Civic Si.... not any of the normal USDM Civic trims.
