Default engine transplant

Ok i have settled on the engine that i want (b18b) and i will be able to do the swap in about 4 months. my question is this, if a b18b will drop into my car with just a few motor mount changes then will my d16y8 drop into an integra? why i ask is why do an engine swap and have a leftover engine? why not find a good deal on a integra, and just swap motors and re-sell the integra with my old engine.. me and a mechanic friend of mine will be doing all the swapping so no labor costs will be involved, only the cost of car and motor mounts.

Umm.. I'm not sure about the d16 in theintegra, but the b18 should just drop into the civic with the mounts.... just remember, you have to swap transmissions, too.

it should just bolt right into the integra if the b18 came out of it and dropped into your car

id treat it like a normal swap, axles, tranny, engine, ecu, wire harness and so on...just wondering if the d16 will drop into the teggy like the b18 will the civic...with the exception of motor mounts.....could i just swap the motor mounts from the 2 cars? mounts out of the teggy to go with civic and visa-versa or will i have to buy aftermarket mounts?

I am going to be buying a compleat integra with a b18 already in it and take the engine to put in my civic, and take my old engine (d16y8) and put into the integra and resell it. why not just buy the integra and keep it and sell the civic you may ask, reason is the civic is already paid for, and i have already done stuff to the inside and such...besides i like my civic . by putting the d16 into the integra and reselling it ill be able to make almost all of my money back...if not all of it and essentualy get a b18 engine for free
