    Hi all, I just discovered and joined this site today in search of help!!!

    I have a 93 Honda CRX Del Sol with a B16a engine... for many reasons and problems I need to change the engine and have a contact who can get hold of import honda engines! I don't really want a B16a again, I got bored of it, so they suggested a B18 out of an Integra....

    I am not mechanically minded, i'm more knowledgable about I.C.E and styling and only the basics of tuning... But I have a couple of mates who are clued up mechanics who have the time and space to perform an engine swap for me...

    HOWEVER, they feel very confident about putting in another B16a... it's a straight swap, easy as! BUT feel very weary about putting in an Integra Type R engine...

    So i'm asking for some advice as I am in dire need of a new engine, and fast!

    Will the engine do a straight swap? Will the gearbox fit? Do I need to uprate or change the mounts? Do I need to uprate or change driveshafts? If so which B18 engine would be best and why!?!?!

    PLEASE HELP!

    Yes, yes, no, no, any B18C because its more powerful than that B16A.
