    Any 92-95 civic hatchback is the same. Go for an Si if you want the extra bling factor and a cleaner build or a CX for less weight if you're simply a speed demon (you can also rip out most of the interior if you want). Buy a complete K20 changeover from hmotorsonline. You will need to buy hasport motor mounts to hold that bad boy in your engine bay. First thing to do is always i/h/e and you can opt to slap on a low psi turbo and tune the car on a dyno. I don't know all that much about K series personally but if you can afford it, it's the best you can buy right now. Without a money limit, you could build the block, strap it to a massive turbo and walk all over stock block (or mildly built) turbo B18Cs.

    i/h/e = Intake, Header, Exhaust (Basic bolt-on parts)

    Hasport and others make K series mounting kits. Expect to pay alot for a K20a Type R engine ~ $5500 - $6500 alone, difficult swap, but would be rare and rewarding.

    A B18C would be much cheaper and easier to buy/install and I agree with "That Guy" with a Turbo + Tuning you'd be damn quick.

    If you dont want to turbo and you want something cheaper then a K20 then go with an H22 swap, there are more resources for an H22 swap then a K-series swap.

    Good Luck
