    Alrighty. I was looking at the B18C5... but then I happend to come across the Integra K20A.

    Yr.:2001 Type R 1998cc,DOHC i-VTEC. 16V. 6 Speed M/T, Horsepower :220hp@8,000rpm, Torque: 21.0kgm@7,000rpm, Compression: 11.5:1, Disp: 2.0

    Can this fit in a 98 Civic dx Coupe? If it does, what exactly is i-VTEC? I know it has something to do with controling exhaust and intake, but not sure what it does exactly. I know people can put prelude engines in Civics, but what about this? Besides the Engine, Tranny, ECU, Wiring Harness, and Mounts, would I need to do anything else? Love to hear from ya'll. Thanks - Zack

    You need to mirror the entire engine bay... the K series sits on the passenger side, while the D and B series sit on the driver side. Go buy a B18C5 and mod it... dropping a K20 into your car isn't worth it. It would cost way too much.
