Hate to burst your bubble, but your not going to be able to get a 94+ integra dn do a swap with 5k. Unless, you find a busted ass one for like 1500 or $2000 and then spen the other $3000 on a B18C (or B18B), your gonna need a bigger budget.

the best engine for the integras are any of the b series engines. b18a1, b18c1, b18c5, blah blah blah. some people put h22(prelude) engines in but they tend to make the car understeer from what i understand. as for price go to http://www.ardperformance.com or http://www.jdm1.com and check out their selection. a shop in my area charges $1000 flat for a swap. you usually will have to get some additional parts to complete the swap but the parts vary so i cant give u a price. look for up to 5k for a decent swap (at least in my area)

Do NOT buy anything from JDM1. These people are unscrupulous and do not follow up on their promises! It has been 9 months since I ordered a B18C swap from Shaan and I still have not received all the parts supposedly included with the swap. In addition, I ordered an OBD1 swap and received an OBDII. Then they expected me to pay to ship all the incorrect stuff back before they would ship replacements. I am seeking legal action against JDM1. They cost me an additional $2000 in parts for the defective or missing parts.
A word to the wise, don't waste your money and time.
Let the BUYER BEWARE!
