    Same exact procedure as an H22 swap into an Integra/Civic. If the Integra has a perfectly running motor though, then I don't really see the point in this swap. It'll generate some more torque and a few more horsepower, but nothing that's really worth the price tag in my opinion...

    no his car is very shitty. has 250xxx miles. compression 2 cylinders are out. i mean this car is horrible. we found the f23a for a really good price. it would be cheaper to swap this engine than to find another b18. thats why i need help. can you give me a list of what i would need?

    I REALLY doubt that it will be cheaper. This is not a bolt-in swap at all, it requires fabrication to mount it, or expensive after-market mounts. Plus, the Integra's transmission WON'T bolt to that motor, so you'll need an F/H-series gearbox as well, and it requires a bit of fabrication as well to make the shifter work. Either that, or you buy an expensive adapter plate so you can reuse the Integra's transmission.

    Any way you look at it, I don't see how this could possibly be cheaper then just buying another used LS engine...

    Yep, no problem. If you look around a bit I'm sure you could find a used LS with far fewer miles for $500 or under. Unless you've got mad fabricating and wiring skills, and plenty of extra materials laying around, I don't really see you getting away with the F23 swap for less then 2 grand, so if the point here is to just get the car running again, then used LS is the way to go...
