    It's not a matter of will it fit. The RSX motor spins backwards from all the other Honda motors, there would be soooo much reshaping of the engine bay on this it would not be worth the undertaking.

    yes, this can be done...however its a lot of work and for less money you could just buy a jdm itr motor and bolt everything in.

    Yes it'll work
    Yes it's a pain in the ass
    Yes you'll go faster, be more reliable, and make more power with a B series turbo than the K20A
