Bang for your buck, your not going to get anything better then the B18c1. I've had one in my EG since 2001. Still running awesome, lots of parts available.

I know of a couple people who have done this, and neither one of them have had any issues.

Try calling around to a few of the local shops, like some of the sponsers/Garage 5. See what they say. Most of these shops have most likely done all of your suggestions a million times over. They'll know the first hand pros and cons. Not to mention the cost of each route.

Bottom line, you'll have a car that's waaay more fun to drive in the end!
fair enough, i think at this point calling around, doing some research and find what appeals to me the most is the best thing to do. thanks everyone for your input. i most likely will wind up tossing b18c in there, ill make a thread to document it once everything is up to date and what not.

B18c1 is awesome. If u do a full swap and get the Gsr trany it would be sweet. A little on the expensive side tho.

How come nobody does h22 swaps in dc2's? Using the h to b trany kit sounds pretty decent. Had the h22 in my 94 accord and it was pretty quick. Tempted to do this swap with my dc2.
