if you have a cr-x. just get a b18a swap and start there. it will cost about $1000 to get installed. get a suspension and brakes. learn how to drive. be done with it.

you won't get a GSR in there for 2700 bucks, let alone a type R.
both are out of your budget, considering the change over is going to run you more than your budget with shipping... and that's before you score a cable b16 or ls tranny (or retrofit your car to use hydrolics), mouts from hasport, etc, and all the misc fluids, tools you don't have, etc etc to get it done.

i figured that. tools, fluids stuff like that no problem. i wouldnt put it in my shop would do that for nothing. most parts would be in a full swap which is what im saving for. thanx for the input
