    Bring your car, the motor, and a blank check to a reputable shop. Start working overtime at your job, or get another job on top of your current one. This swap won't be cheap, easy, or a "weekend wonder".

    In order to do this you'd need a K-series transmission too. It's not really that difficult, it's just not cheap at all. You'd need custom after-market mounts, wiring, header, and you would need to do a bit of fabrication as well. It's very possible to do, just not the best choice for your first Honda swap.

    A B-series on the other hand, is a bolt-in swap, and the wiring is fairly simple...

    Sell it then use that money to buy a complete b18c1 or b18c changeover from Hmotorsonline, and then swap that into your car :D

    Finally someone that listens. As stated previously, just drop a B in there for now to get your feet wet. Maybe while you have the B in your car you can save up some money and do the K swap down the road.
