    try the search button on this site and maybe put in swap and see what you get.

    b16 or b18, b20 those are your b series choices. b18c would be very good and not too pricey.

    I dont know where you come from, but 3k+ is pricey.


    b18b's are great engines, but NA or turboed, and can be had pretty cheap (between 1200-2000)

    the b16 is nice, however, the lack of trq is a major downside, expessailly in a EK Coupe.

    GSR's (b18c1's) are very nice, and offer a high reving, high trq (compared to the b16) high hp powerplant that is great for drag racing, autocrossing, road racing, or just plain daily driving.

    b18b for 1200 i would like to see that. every place i have seen have b18b's for 2k and up. junkyards around my area have them jacked way up too. 3k for a good motor isnt too pricey. dont you have a 4-5k itr swap? and how is the gsr a more high reving motor than the b16?

    you have to search. I have found full integra ls's for 2k.

    And I have a GSR swap, and I didn't pay 3k for it.
