Your integra does not have a B16 unless someone put it in there. You likely have a B18A. Pop your hood and look down on the front of the motor there will be a stamp there that tells you what the motor is.

Might be better for you to just to an LS/Vtec by sticking a Vtec head on your block. Its a pretty basic swap.

Berz out.

If the owner did nothing to it and it doesn't have vtec then it's a b18a.
a b16 has Vtec and is an unlikely swap lol.

The stamp is beside your headers and it actually on the transmission. with 223000km you probably wouldn't see it without cleaning it first.

Berzerker has a good suggestion, going ls vtech. or you can just swap in a c1.
as for shops, try the sponsors. Garage Five, Evolution, Advance, etc

Not to worry! Good luck with your swap.
a newer lower km engine would be a better idea.
