Default B16 Swap

I have a JDM D15B vtec engine and it is turbo'd. I was wondering how to go about a b16 swap, I would get it done professionally but I just dont know where to look for the engine and what i would need. I would like to keep my injectors and all that stuff because i have 470cc RX7 injectors. I also have a chipped ECU so I would want to keep it, or would i just need to get the new ECU chipped?
Also I have an LSD transmission, and I could usea new one probably since I sometimes have trouble getting into reverse, would a whole new transmission fix that?
So basically what im asking is where could I get just the engine like without the intake manifold and exhaust manifold? I know ill need a new exhaust manifold to fit the turbo, but will my current intake manifold work?
Any idea where to look to get one of these engines and approximately how much it will cost for labour to have the swap done?

You need new manifolds period...you will have to get a new tranny period cause the b and d series arent interchangeable...password jdm.comhas complete swaps as do many other sites

Ok, at least thats cleared up. Thanks alot I really appreciate the help. Could my injectors be interchangeable onto the new fuel rail or intake, wherever they go? And would I need to get the new ECU chipped, or just get them to keep my ECU?
I know I would needto get a tune after but thats the least of my worries. Whatabout all the turbo piping, will anything need to be modified?
How much labour (hours) would I be looking at from a good mechanic?
