    Is a great one, but I've been looking around for some backwoods source that has no idea what the hell "vtec" or "type r" is. I haven't been so lucky with that.

    That's where I got my B16 SiRII from, and the damn thing is perfect. It even had a new timing belt and water pump already on it, and it is strong as hell. The transmission was fine too. $2400 including shipping. VERY FAST shipping from Quebec Canada to a suburb of Chicago Illinois in just 4 days. I would strongly recommend them.

    Give www.nippon-motors.com a look too. I haven't used them but they were helpful when I thought I needed a new 13BT.

    it all depends on what car its going into...if its a 92-95 hatch
    first off you will need a:

    USDM p30 which will run you about $230- $300 depending on who is selling it
    del sol(vtec) intake manifold..thats what i was told so i found onefor 90 shipped , i feel like i got ripped off..
    you gotta make sure all the emissions equipment is hooked up...no CELs
    correct intake w/ carb #s that match del sol vtec or stock intake...

    i cant think of what else i needed..well havent gone there yet..still in the process of repairing for referee

    i ahve no idea if its any other car

    You won't need to buy the p30 ECU if you get your swap from Nagano Japanese dude. Mine came complete with the p30 ECU, although since I'm not in Cali and now want to chip my ecu, I'm gonna have to find a good p28 somewhere in the next few months or so so I can ubertune it. I think you were thinking of the B16A SiR, the first generation type r civic motor. That one has the p28 ecu if I remember correctly.
