    Never heard it done .. it like the opposite of putting a k motor in an EK (or older Civic). The engine turns the opposite direction, the intake & exhaust are opposite sides, the mounts would be off, etc.. I'd imagine the wiring may cause issues, especially on the more sensitive I-VTEC computer. --The short answer-- It is generally illegal for a street legal vehicle to have an older motor installed in a newer vehicle.

    so what do you want to do? i mean k series motor alone is a big money issue. what 4000ish online? I havent seen one here in Tally go for less that 5g's. you call man. see what b series motor you want and try to overestimate on the labor and custom work. you might be right and youd prolly save you some money by buying the k and the mounts. sorry man i canty help you too much here. all i know is that it is possible to put a b motor in

    Why not boost it? Cheaper then booth and easier to improve later.
