    Im not good with hondas yet. Can you tell me will the transmission off my d16y8 work with a B20. If not what transmission will work. And how hard will the swap be?

    What is the best motor for general purpose use still give me decent gas mileage and a little more pep.

    The local tuner shop has these engines in stock what would be the best one to get.
    Blueridge Motorsports - JDM Engine Swaps

    What would you chose?

    Not the type r motors lol. Can afford them i wish. Looking to stay around $1500 or so.

    no

    at least not easily or directly without use of an adapter plate
    you will want to look for a B series transmission


    a B20 is fine for general use

    best for all around use would be a GSR trans

    close enough low gears to accellerate quickly long enough high gears to maintain reasonable MPG on the highway
