    your looking at about $3000-3500 for the engine (complete swap)
    then figure on about another $1000 to replace everything that should be replaced (timing belt, water pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, clutch, etc...) and all the other little shit to get it in the car

    if you plan to have a shop do it for you add on another $600-1000 or so
    you really are better off doing it yourself if you are a little mechanicly inclined or have some friends that are who can help you... the ammount you learn is worth WAYYYY more than the $1000 the shop will charge you

    what do you have planned for mods .... anything to the engine would be easiest to do before it gets put in

    Find your nearest local auto mechanic and ask for pricing, you should be able to get your motor for cheap since you want a JDM!!! If you live near Sacramento...Go to VENUS Motors...they should have JDM B18C...

    you should do a lot more research ... you dont use a header with a turbo


    seriously though im not trying to fuck with you .... do some research before you end up blowing a lot of money on worthless shit

    You said you want a 99 civic? Why wouldn't you save some money and get a 96 since it's still an EK, and even if it has tons of miles, you will be replacing everything anyways... You could have saved thousands, and then pay like 50 bucks to get the 99-00 front bumper, and you ahve basically the same car for less money... Just a suggestion. By the way, if you are ording a motor I recamend HMO, I've had two great expriences with them, they are great to work with.

    EJdmB18C, just out of curiosity, EJ's were only available in Japan wern't they? Do you have right hand drive, or is it just your thing?
