Default S2000 Engine swap

Hey, I just went to the Minneapolis auto show and honda had this sweet 240 hp DOHC. Does anyone know what engine this is? Could you swap it into a Civic EX coupe?

yeah, its probably the S2k motor as your title states, and yes you could put it in a civic. and no, its not a "swap" that simplifies it too much. that makes it sound like a standard d-b series swap. it would be all custom fabrication and custom parts. Kappa has seen it done/taken part in one. but as he said about it, the guy paid twice what the car was worth in labor alone.

i dont know how fast it was, but i dont really think it was a drag car. it was converted to RWD, so i assume it was a track/drifter. i mean, why do that swap when you could get more power out of a turbo gsr, for about 1/3 the price?

the s2k motor really aint that great of a motor when it comes to money. its hard to make power with and there aint that many really good performance parts for it. just stick with swapping b series b/c they have more parts av. then i know what to with.
