    Just go with Hmotorsonline. Tons of people from Hondaswap have purchased there, I've never heard a bad thing about Hmotorsonline.

    Hmotors is the way to go, i received my jdm gsr and it was clean and all sensors were in good condition. these guys are cool, i set up a pay plan cuz i was broke at the time and they said no prob. talk to peter (owner) he will help you with any extra stuff needed for your swap.HMO

    SWAP engine source


    I recently purchased a 96 JDM B18b from Nagasaki Japanese Autoparts and I got the whole setup with wiring harness, new axles, ECU, and accessories shipped for $1650. I'm still collecting the rest of the parts I need to swap into my 97 Civic DX hatch. I'm up to $2600 with the exhaust, catalytic converter, new front suspension kit, springs, struts, timing kit, and clutch kit. EBAY was a big supplier of the parts not included with my motor/tranny kit. I'm going to be at about $3000 in parts when I'm done, but the car is going to be so sweet.
