its an Ek3 mate, same as mine :)

ur doing same as me, but im puttin in b18c4.

u will need engine, gearbox, driveshafts, ecu and wiring loom for the conversion. also £600 is a very good price, mind the gearbox mount will need some cuttin welding etc, (not expert so aint sure wot is done to it)

so to sum up, u need full conversion, dont need mounts, just a lil fabricating on one. u may also need the shift linkage from the b18.

anything else u need to know aboutthe converison just ask mate, il try help.

Nuno

Its worth asking but don't expect it to be cheap!

2.5 grand for the full engine with gearbox and everything, seems a bit soo much, 1996 with 60k mile on it hmm

£2500???? im in the wrong kind of work!

i will get you a number for a guy i just bought my gearbox from, he breaks around five hondas a month :eek:

but he specialises in integra type R's and im sure he is a damn sight cheaper than £2500 for the whole shooting match, he is based in Perth (Scotland obviously) but im sure he pallets stuff and couriers it

also just to add he has a LOT of honda parts lying around up for grabs so i will see if he will join this forum and trade on here ;)

just pm'd him, will let you know when he reply's

im sure you can get a c5 swap for sub 1.5k and that would be a 98 spec

but the best bit of advice i can give you just now is use the search button at the top right of your screen and do alot of homework before buying anything as you seem to have limited or no knowledge/experience with engine swaps, dont take that the wrong way though, no one was born a clued up mechanic ;)
