Ive seen some pretty nasty D-series, but I think the B and K series are just better starting platforms.

B20
K24/K20 frankenstein
K24
K20
B18

all great swaps to begin with, even without boost.

I guess it just matters what kind of money one has. I guess D series can be the cheapest. B series is more expensive, and K series is the most expensive out of all of them.

I like K series alot, but they are too darn pricey. I really dont think you can beat the bang for the buck with a d series.

well of course money is always what matters. d series is cheap and easy. parts are found pretty much everywhere. *looks under a rock "hey a d series engine"* lol ok maybe not everywhere but yeah.
k is cool, but theyre just getting so big. only k swap ive seen that i liked was the s2000 engine in a corolla

That motor is called the F20c/F22c, not a K...K series are in accords, TSX, RSX, etc.

H22?

And about this bang for your buck discussion...i really dont mind spending a little more money and doing a little extra work for a faster car with more potential than the cheaper engines. I prefer it. As far as i'm concerned, the h22 is pretty powerful for the price. Cheaper than a b18 ...and much cheaper than those k20's.

Sure they call the S2000s 2.0/2.2s an F series but you know as well as I do its pretty much a damn K series.

I would go for an H22 swap. Then decide if you want to boost. My buddy had an h22 eg with a header, full exhaust, and intake, and it moves pretty nicely. He has a JDM h22 that revs to over 8 grand, MUSIC

You can buy seperate pieces of both, but its easier to buy 2 engines, get all you need and sell off the parts rather than have to hunt down small bolts and gaskets with the other option.

I say stick with an H22, you will be happy enough, trust me, ive driven them

just like any swap besides your d series, you need not only the engine, but the wiring harness, tranny, ecu, engine mounts new exhaust piping to link it up to the manifold, and etc...
just an fyi

Yeah, if theres anything else...then please fill in that "etc..."

I'm pretty new to the car scene. Anything i can prepare for...instead of running into during the swap, and delaying the process.
