    Hey guys, I just purchased a 1990 Integra LS with 473,000 kms on it. It's in fantastic condition for the kilometers it has, and the engine still runs great. There's no way I'm building that block, so I would like to swap in an OBD1 B18C1 or an OBD2 and convert it. There are so many websites claiming to include everything you need for the swap, but after hearing so many swap horror stories (bent valves, spun bearings, warped heads), it's very hard to trust pictures and text. Does anyone know any reputable engine importers?

    Where are you located? picking up in person is always the best option.
