    I have a 91 integra and i want to swap a b18c5 into it. I was wondering how much that would cost or if anyone knows where the cheapest place to buy one would be. and if i should get the JDM or the USDM.

    your looking to spend quite a bit, i would say 6-7k
    the motor alone costs 4500-5000, and then you need to put it in your car. on the other hand the tranny is hydro and your car is cable so you either have to convert your car to hydro, or sell the tranny for 1100, and pick up a good cable tranny for 400.

    He should have a B series (B18A1) cable tranny that he could bolt to the ITR motor and then sell the ITR tranny.The ITR tranny is hella better,but still the $1000+ he could get fropm it would go a long way towards making the swap a little cheaper in the end.

    You may be better served with the ls/vtec build as you already have a B motor.Here is an article about what you need and some info and Here is a how to with pics.

    Since ur not a mechanic and u got the cash a type r is better
    Put it this way type r 's with bolt ons run 13.2 all day

    faster than a gsr with a supercharger or or turbo runing low boost.
    But u ill need the typ r tranny 4 the short gearing

    You're on crack.A ITR isn't going to be faster than a supercharged or turbo'ed B16 much less a GSR.

    I wouldn't go w/ a ls/vtec for the fact that you don't sound like a mechanic and you cant just take a hybrid motor to a local dealership, they won't touch it, if they do they'll charge you enough to just swap an ITR motor in. I'd go with a GSR, bolt ons, maybe some new cams.

    The idea of goin with ITR, using your stock tranny and selling the ITR one is a very good idea though.

    wit those 5-6 k y dont u just built a ls vtec motor. wit bolt ons u hit faster with a type R motor in there. more torque and Hp than type R motor. built the bottom end and u can rev higher, which includes pistons rod etc.. search for more info to lazy to put them, but ne way save those 5-6k n built a ls vtec motor and u would be surprise and happy what the engine is capable of. i aint dissing teh c5 motor but y throwing away 5-6k for just the motor and u can oinly run 14s, do ls vtec and spent those 5-6k and ull go 13s all day wit no prob.
