Default should i? full b16 swap

okay guys, my friend has a b16 sitting at his house that he wanted to swap into his car he has right now, 2000 civic, its got everything, i mean everything, ready to drop into a 96-00 civic ex. Nothing wrong with it, just wants to get a b18 instead since hes not gonna run boost afterall. Wanted to sell it to me for 950. I know thats a killer deal but i dont have the money and he doesnt know if he can hold it. Should i ask him to tho? right now my car, 96 civic ex d16y8, has I/H/E and a short shifter with afew other goodies. But i know its no where near as fast as a b16, and with that motor i could also boost it later like i want to.

What should i do?

Look all over your house and sell a bunch of crap so you can buy it, hell, sell your intake, header and short shifter! lol. But seriously, that's an awesome deal... jump on that!
