That's easy stuff, especially for a shop to do. A LOT of parts are made nowdays for K-series swaps into EG and EK chassis civics.

What you are talking about is a K-series swap into an EG. The K-series w/ a 6 speed has been out since the RSX Type-S was first introduced circa 2002, hasport followed with mounts a year or two later. Now a K-series in an EG or EK is pretty common. You can buy the mounts and lots of other required parts nowdays, so there is a lot less custom fab involved than there was 6+ years ago.

The Acura RSX comes with a K-series (K20A3 for 2002-2004, K20Z1 in 2005-2006), though it's a toned down version. The 2002-2005 Si hatchback came with the K20A3. The RSX Type-S had a good, hopped up K series with a 6 speed (K20A2). It put down 200hp, whereas the K20A3 put down 160hp. The 2006-2010 Civic Si has a K20Z3 with a factory LSD in the transmission.

The newer CRV came with a K24A1 ( K24Z6 for 2010+ CRV), and the Acura TSX came with a K24A2 also came with K-Series motors (The CRV had a K24). Some guys will stick a K20 head on a K24 block (some idea as an CR/Vtec from back in the day).

To swap a K-series with 6 speed into an EG will probably run in the $7,000-8,000 range if you are paying a shop to do it (which I'd recommend if you haven't any engine swapping experience). A K-series swap is harder for the DIY type person than a B series swap is.

It's just that easy folks... mind the forum guidelines and we're cool.
