    anything is possible with the right amount of money. but it's a pointless swap. for the $ that it would take to get either of those engines into your car, you could have a b-sereis twice as powerful. give us your budget and what you want out of the car and you'll get some responses.

    if all you want is a track bitch and money isnt a problem, get an h22a, sleeve it put some 9:1 pistons in it, throw a shit load of boost at it and have lots of fun, but thats my opinion

    all motor 12's are expensive. boosted 12's are not so tough. the owner of http://www.full-race.com/ is puttin' down 586hp with a gsr engine with just sleeves, rods & low comp. pistons with his kit on that site tuned by hondata. that is not too much work it it will most likely produce a 10 sec. car. i don't know if you wanted a 'lil less than that... but if you do, you could just rebuild an ls or gsr and strap on a lesser turbo kit and make less power with slower times while spending more money if that's your thing ;) .
