Default Thinking of doing a mini swap.

Now I'm completely new to all this car stuff since I recently bought a '99 civic lx. I have a d16y7 engine and it runs very well. I was planning on doing a mini swap, if that's what you call it, and putting the a y8 head on the engine.

Would ebay be all right to buy one. There seems to be one for $80 dollars. Is this a good price or too good to be true?

Also how much would it cost to bring it to a mechanic to have it put in? I have no idea on how to install one myself so does anyone have a rough estimate as to how many hours of labor it is or any rough price range?

Here's some ebay links:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/D16y8...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-00...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HONDA...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HONDA...Q5fAccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1-6-H...Q5fAccessories

Any of these seem like good deals? Or should I not trust ebay at all?
