    Well since its a Honda stick with something that will give you good mileage and low polluter. I suggest a hampster on a wheel.

    But seriously, what is your budget? That will really determine what you can get. Why all-motor?

    1) speak english
    2) if u don't have a job then u might want to look into getting one, swaps like that will be a bit pricey
    3) why not turbo the D?
    4) turbo itr can be difficult, lots of tuning would be required because of the high compression

    For the price of a B18C5, you could get a GSR motor and do alot more with the left over money and have a motor more powerful than the Type-R. I would go with the GSR swap.

    also why not considering turboing the motor you have in there now? you would make more power than doing a swap, ive changed my nimd and instead of me swapping a gsr in my 97 civic ex and im gonna just go turbo, but if u swap get the engine from www.hmotorsonline.com and also dont b cheap, get the LSD!

    why do u wanna see pics? right now my car is still messed up cuz i got rear ended but if u want i can go take some here in a few minutes, turboing the d series single cam vtec will be cheaper and u will be making more power than someone with a swap, i plan on buying all of my turbo stuff this summer, in july....
